“The place to be”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Room
A very spacious and well decorated room which gives you the feeling of being home away from home. Own laundry machine just one of the highlights to be mention.

Team
Very friendly, charming and helpful at all times.

MISC
The wine hour / degustation is an absolute must to attend and the cozy bar with its fireplace the perfect place to relax and to be with friends
In short – the perfect place to be!

I have stayed at the AKA a few times now and I am always so pleased. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and with a full kitchen, you can avoid having to eat out all the time. Will definitely stay at the AKA next time I am in DC for work.

A colleague of mine stayed at AKA White House and recommended it to me. As I planned my next trip to DC, I took a look. Their prices were below almost all the hotels within a 10-15 block radius, and AKA offered more space. I stayed in DC for two nights (AKA has a minimum 2-night stay requirement), and loved it! The space was bigger than my first studio apartment in New York City. I did an interview in the lobby/lounge area, and it was perfect as well. The staff at AKA are very attentive, but I like the 'hands off' treatment. It's like you have an apartment there. If you're there during basketball season, I recommend dinner at the Elephant and Castle over on 19th and 'Eye'.

Our return visit to the AKA White House was exceptional. The staff greeted us as though we were home. And truthfully, the AKA White House has become our home away from home in DC. It is superbly managed, luxurious and the perfect location. We know that the suite will have everything we need. Whether one is staying for a long-weekend or for a few months, the service is the same, excellent. To us, the AKA White House is much better than a hotel. It's a spacious, comfortable place to stay for more than a day.

AKA wasn't the hotel we booked to stay initially. After discover the original hotel we booked was absolutely filthy (Holiday Inn Capitol), we moved to AKA the second night and what a great find!! The apartment was very spacious - you don't normally get walk-in robe in serviced apartments! The amenities are first class. And the kitchen is very well equipped. The hotel is in a very good location, close to many of the nice restaurants of DC. And only one block away from Farragut West Metro station. Now we have discovered the AKA brand, we will come back to it again and again.

Recently we stayed for a week at AKA and found our apartment spacious and comfortable. The kictchen was well equiped with crockery,cooking utensils and saucepans etc.
The apartment was clean and comfortable.
The staff were most helpfull and obliging and even went to the trouble of sorting out some problems we had with our IPad.
We did appreciate having our own washing machine and dryer.

My husband and I booked a room for a November weekend and were so surprised at how huge the "suite" was! We had a bedroom, huge living room with tv and table, complete kitchen, washer and dryer, and two bathrooms. AKA is very modern with a cool, dark lobby that smells wonderful! The parking garage is right beside and available all weekend long. It's a great safe neighborhood steps from Lafayette Square, the White House, GWU campus, but yet on a quiet street. We found it to be a great place to relax, felt like home, and we enjoyed eating breakfast in our room. No restaurant in the residence but many places nearby.

Room Tip: Bring your own tea bags, cereal, juice, fruit, etc. for the in-room refrigerator. Across the street...
