We've stayed at the AKA Rittenhouse Square twice, once in October 2015 for 10 nights and once in February 2016 for 7 nights. This hotel has been the perfect solution for our needs on a longer-than-a-few nights stay in Philadelphia. It is a really great hotel in many ways. First, the rooms (really suites) offer a pleasant and homey atmosphere....

This is an excellent hotel with comfortable rooms, a terrific location, and an outstanding staff. We spent almost two weeks here and had multiple family members and friends come and see us; everyone came away very impressed. The rooms are large, bright, and well suited for an extended stay. The Internet was fast and free. The hotel is well situated...

Large spacious suites, king size bed, kitchen, dining area and living room. Property very clean all over, and staff was amazing. Cleaning is once a week which worked for us. Neighborhood is excellent for walking, shopping and dining. We walked to many historic sites.

Simon L, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay at AKA Rittenhouse Square. While I'm glad to see there were several aspects that you enjoyed, I am disappointed to learn of those that were negatives, particularly given that we are weeks from unveiling several floors of renovated suites, with the balance scheduled for 2016.

I was a bit skeptical, as every time we're in Philly we stay at the Ritz Carlton, but the AKA Rittenhouse blew it out of the water. We had a one-bedroom that overlooked the square. It was sooo perfect. The room was huge, a massive living room and den, with a huge kitchen. The staff was discreet and extremely helpful....
