          Aka Rittenhouse Square was wonderful: spacious, well-decorated, and a great value. The staff were attentive and kind and professional, and they really helped us settle in and feel welcome. The square itself made a wonderful place to relax, and the shops and restaurants around the square were also terrific; I wish we could have stayed longer.

          We had never visited the Rittenhouse Square area before and loved it. We walked almost everywhere from the hotel. We could drop off items in the middle of our day because the location was so convenient and the hotel was so easy to get in and out of. The size and the layout of the hotel was perfect because my husband travels for work therefore was not looking forward to staying in another tiny hotel room so having a suite was perfect. I loved the fact that there is a small kitchen and although we only reheated food, it was great having so many household items already there(scissors). The staff was excellant as well. They made reservations for us, made us feel welcomed, and were right on target with their recommendations.We will definitely stay again. I would especially recommend this hotel if you are traveling with children. We will also try other aka locations because of our positive experience with the Rittenhouse Sqaure location.

          Great location

          The friendliness of all the staff and their willingness to help when asked. Their knowledge about the local area (ie where to get food, coffee etc) and Philadelphia. The cleaness of the rooms and their pleasant layout.

          It will be great when the renovations are complete.

          The staff was unbelievable. They are responsive and they make their guest(s) feel important. They go above and beyond what you would expect. Outstanding!

          Housekeeping could be more consistent.

          the location was great,and the fully stocked kitchen was awsome. The staff was very helpful. all-in-all it was a good choice.

          The lack of a garagewas the only problem we had.

          The room was very comfortable. The location is great. the price was very reasonable and the staff very nice.

          The room was a little bit noisy during evenings and nights. I think it would be nice to put double glazing.

          We were very disappointed. I didn't realize that this primary function of this facility is corporate housing. We walked in expecting more of an upscale hotel look but there was no lobby. We stopped in the restaurant for a drink. The bar stools were full but majority of restaurant tables empty. We asked if we could sit at a table for a quick drink but were told that there were reservations for all the tables so could not be accomodated. The bathroom sink opening was smaller than the commode. The kitchen was equipped for those staying longer periods of time. We ended up leaving early.

          The location is incredible and the deal they have worked out with the garage nearby is also great--a flat $20/day for in and out, which is fantastic. It is also easy to park directly in front of the hotel to load and unload. The wifi is very good--free with the room and open to unlimited devices with a simple login protocol. Staff is friendly and helpful.

          For short stays it lacks some of the amenities one might want. We asked repeatedly for bottled water but were told they had run out. Bathroom was also extremely small, although the kitchenette area and the bar table in front of it were great for laying out stuff.

        • Older travelers

          It was very modern and clean and spacious, and well-located for the museums and the symphony and shopping.

          Aka Rittenhouse Square was within walking distance of the start/finish line for the Philadelphia Marathon. It was the primary reason for choosing the hotel. Upon arrival, our room had been updated to a very spacious suite, which we enjoyed very much. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and exceeded our needs.

          Although we were on the 12th floor, the city noises sounded like they were right outside our windows -- building needs better insulation against noise.
