  • FiDi Gem That's Being Discovered

    by Stephen M on 2018-04-11 05:32 am

    I started staying here right after it opened a couple of years ago. It's convenient to where I work, and unlike a lot of other local hotels, it faces a broad open space so lots of sunlight is available--unless you're staying in a 01 line, which faces the center of the building (the building is essentially U shaped).

    Rooms are usually sunny and bright. D?cor is modern minimalist, and very pleasing to the eye. Sofas are hewn in a rough, durable fabric however, which is not my favorite. Beds are large and super comfortable; I considered actually buying one for my own apartment! Pillows are voluminous, and linens are soft and warm. Towels seem to be in short supply, so unless you're a solo traveler, consider ordering more.

    There is no room service, but there are plenty of eateries in the area, not to mention food trucks and carts right outside of 59 Maiden, right across the street. Tons of dining opportunities in this neighborhood, much more than 15 years ago. The Financial District is one of Manhattan's last underdeveloped residential neighborhoods, so more amenities are popping up every day. The Federal Grill did open on the first floor, so that should be your first stop--the food is actually quite good, though it can get very busy.

    About rooms: I've personally stayed in the one bedroom 02 line and the 03 and 07 Premium Studios. The 02s are an odd layout, kind of a lazy Z formation with a long entry hall, generous-sized bedroom, bathroom, and then a long but somewhat narrow living/dining area. The 03 and 07 are essentially the same layout, but the 07 seems smaller and does not have a sofa with a return on it. I tend to favor the 03 line overall, as it has three windows overlooking Maiden Lane and the Louise Nevelson Plaza just south of the Federal Reserve. Lots of natural light here, and if you're in my personal fave 1403, street noise is minimal.

    Two Samsung smart TVs are in each unit, 48" or so. You can watch all the usual streaming content, something a lot of more expensive hotels like The Benjamin in midtown still don't offer. The units I've been in don't seem to be showing a lot of wear, which is a sign the units are well maintained.

    Rooftop area offers some treats like coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. Views are fairly good, though the building is only 17 stories tall.

    Bathrooms are large and very well lit, with two primary lighting sources. Shower is all glass and is huge. Spigot is located directly across from the door, so you can switch on the shower without getting wet.

    Again, towels could be more plentiful, and there are only two wash cloths (I just stayed in 902 last night, and there were only two). On the studios, closets are a bit shallow. In the one and I presume two bedroom units, they're more spacious. Kitchens are stylish and well equipped; I wanted for nothing. Unlike some units at the Q & A Hotel on Pine Street, there are no in-room washer/dryer units. This would have come in handy during one ten day stay, but I just sent my laundry out to a local cleaner I use. (Around $30 per load.)

    I used to be able to book this place almost at will, and have been here so often most of the staff knows me by name. Regrettably, other travelers are discovering this Wall Street are gem, and I find I'm spending more time in Q & A, located in 70 Pine Street. StayAKA Wall Street at 84 William is becoming more exclusive, it seems!

    I did investigate renting a unit on an annual basis. As you might suspect, it's quite expensive--$7,500 per month for a studio or thereabouts. For that money, you can get a two bedroom in a white glove building, but the financials will be more heavily scrutinized (you'd need to make around $300k annually to score an apartment in that price range in NYC). StayAKA pretty much just charges you a prorated monthly fee based off the normal room rate. If your pockets are deep, it might be a worthwhile expense.

    This is a great hotel, and I recommend it highly.

  • Spacious apartment with rooftop view

    This apartment was spacious and clean and had all the amenities of a home. The rooftop lounge area has an amazing view and my husband and I enjoyed having a glass of wine and some appetizers while enjoying the view,

  • Spacious Apartments in The Financial District

    by _ragarratt on 2018-03-16 03:35 pm

    We chose to stay at AKA Downtown and we weren't disappointed. The reception was warm and efficient and we were quickly registered and in our rooms. The rooms are clean spacious and well equipped with a separated sleeping and sitting areas, both with large flatscreen TVs. The kitchen while well equipped has no supplies at all, I think as a minumum there should be tea, coffee, milk and sugar in the rooms. It was annoying to have to go out and purchase these items. Nice rooftop lounge with outside area and free coffee from 7.00am till 2.00pm. The Federal Grill attached is great fro Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner or a drink until 2.00am. The surrounding area has some great restaurants and bars, shopping and the subway are all close. I will definately stay here on my next visit to New York. Recommended.

  • Good place to stay

    by Parth S on 2018-03-04 09:28 pm

    AKA is an excellent place to stay in downtown Manhattan. The rooms are very spacious and has everything that you need. Don't look elsewhere if you are planning to have a longer stay (or even a shorter stay). The kitchen is fully equipped with all utensils, dishwasher and an oven. The location is close to the Fulton street station and the Wallstreet subway stations as well. The staff is extremely friendly and you will truly enjoy your stay here.
