That's the penthouse rate, which AKA is now supplementing with an "outdoor bedroom" option, available to both of AKA Central Park's penthouse suites. Ever heard of "sleeping under the stars?" Well, you won't find many of those in New York. But you can enjoy views of Central Park from the comfort of your own outdoor queen-sized bed. We don't think you'll get much sleeping done, however, with all the knick-knacks they're throwing in. Among the amenities included in the package: champagne, a fireplace (with the requisite s'mores), a telescope, and an e-reader.
We perked up at the additional listed feature of "outdoor mood music." Admittedly, we had visions of newly-commissioned Brian Eno soundscapes, or maybe even a live harpist strumming away in the corner. But upon further inspection, this proved to be nothing more than an iPod playlist. Neither the playlist editor, nor the songs themselves, were disclosed.
