This is Where the AKA Hotel Will Open in Beverly Hills
We were cruising around Beverly Hills this morning when we noticed a very interesting sign on a building at 9355 Wilshire Blvd.
The sign said, "Coming Soon, AKA Serviced Residents". We had heard that extended-stay brand AKA was coming to Beverly Hills back in December but we had no idea where. Now we know.
Despite the location of the sign, the hotel will open inside 155 N. Crescent Dr., just behind this office building.
According to the hotel's website, AKA Beverly Hills will have 88 one and two bedroom furnished apartments and bi-level townhouses with gourmet kitchens, custom furnishings and private balconies. As with other AKA hotels, the Beverly Hills spot is intended for folks staying a month or longer. And apparently, a Spring 2012 opening is still expected. We shall see.
The location for the all-suite hotel isn't the greatest piece of real estate in Beverly Hills as it's close to a rather busy stretch of Wilshire. But the one good thing it has going for it is that it will be across the street from the party spot Thompson Beverly Hills. And of course, all that Rodeo has to offer is just a few blocks away as well.
We'll keep you posted on the official opening date and rates when we get them. But as always, if you've got your own scoop, let us know!
