Very nice spacious room. Free upgrade on arrival. Great location at Rittenhouse square.

Only negative is a small bathroom. evrything else was good.

Posh room in a posh building. I was upgraded to a 1 bedroom vip suite. I’ll be back.

Hotel in very bad condition needs renovation.Cleaning services very poor

as in the past we very much like staying at AKA at Rittenhouse Square as it is convenient to the Penn medical campus but also to shopping and restaurants. this is the first time, however, that our room was particularly smaller and most especially the bathroom.

It's a great hotel convenient to everything. The staff wasn't so incredibly nice. All the amenities were too notch. Loved it and will return definitely!

Hotel, room, sitting area and kitchen was great! The A restaurant attached to the hotel was very good, although you should make reservations. Staff very nice and friendly. If I have one complaint, it would be the bathroom sink area, there is no room to put anything! I do like to have room, but that being said, everything else was beautiful!

Very attentive staff. Hotel parking is around the corner so some difficulty in unpacking though the staff was very helpful. Very big suite tastefully decorated. Next time I am in Philly I am staying here.
