There are four AKA locations in New York—Central Park, Times Square, Sutton Place, and the United Nations. If you're here for touristy action or proximity to summer fun, these spots will have you covered.
We stayed at the AKA Central Park during the winter and can tell you that the space and comfort of the room was comparable to staying in a friend's apartment. Only without having to tiptoe around other people's stuff during your stay and the added convenience of a Midtown hotel. (Housekeeping! A cafe! A brand new fitness center!)
When we checked, the AKA Central Park still had Summer in the City availability for the week including July 4th, with rooms starting at just $209 a night. Ordinarily, they're $295 and up.
