AKA Central Park forgoes the glitzy decadence of the Plaza Hotel across the street in favor of a sleeker, minimalist take on deluxe. Its exterior is barely marked by signage, and its bright, design-forward lobby forsakes a gift shop or bar. But venture further inside and you’ll find plenty of luxury and comfort in the 134 guest rooms. Large, stylish suites are dressed in warm-brown and cream tones with metallic accents; the imposing solidity of materials such as granite and marble is softened by plush sofas and linens of Egyptian cotton. The 17-story building caters to extended-stay guests, which means that while a studio contains only a wet bar and a microwave, a one- or two-bedroom suite features a full kitchen with cookware, a dishwasher, and a full-size fridge. Corporate lodgers can take advantage of a business center with computers and complimentary printing and faxing, while any guest can enjoy the state-of-the-art gym and the free self-service laundry room. The hotel’s name comes from its owner’s assertion that its properties are “also known as” a home away from home for its guests—a claim you’d have a hard time disagreeing with by the time you check out.


If you need to spend an extended period in a hotel, a great location and spacious rooms make the AKA a fine place to do so.

For all its luxury, there are no views of Central Park.
