Those in the know have come to depend on this growing and visionary brand for a home away from home. When a traditional hotel isn’t the answer, AKA provides the luxury of space and anonymity for stays of seven days or more.
LA-based Koning Eizenberg alongside Asfour Guzy Architects, have transformed the existing rental building into 88 stylish and fully furnished one- and two-bedroom suites and townhouses, ranging in size from 815 to 1,810 square feet. Internationally recognised Pamela Burton & Company Landscape Architects, in conjunction with Oculus Light Studio have created a landscaped terrace for AKA’s residents with fire pits, lounging areas and spectacular views of the Hollywood Hills.
TOP 5 REASONS TO STAY AKA:
- Sprawling Suites
That feature full en-suite kitchens and separate living rooms and an impressive list of customised services all just a few blocks from Rodeo Drive and walking distance to some of the most upscale shopping and dining venues on the West Coast. Enjoy the sun on your balcony during the day and a roaring fire by night in refined, spacious, luxury living.
2. Spago in-Suite
AKA has paired with one of Los Angeles’ culinary kings to provide Spago in-Suite, an innovative and personal catering experience for their long stay guests. Each AKA suite includes an exclusive menu featuring key specialty items from Wolfgang Puck’s legendary flagship restaurant, Spago, in Beverly Hills.
AKA residents have complimentary access to a.cinema, the property’s private, state-of-the-art screening room. Sink into one of a.cinema’s 20 oversized leather reclining seats and watch a film or TV show of their choice on a Stewart Filmscreen Deluxe screen spanning 133 inches. a.cinema is also equipped with a DLP Cinema Projector, Surround Sound by Klipsch Reference series 7.2, and Blue Ray DVD, CD, and TV capabilities.
4. The AKA Motto:
The AKA motto is: “Don’t just visit, live it!” This bold statement led to the creation of LIVE IT!, a lifestyle program that caters to the needs of long-stay guests with life-enriching opportunities while away from home for extended periods of time. The property’s LIVE IT! program provides residents with unique opportunities to enjoy new experiences, learn new skills and develop new talents while residing in Los Angeles. Experiences include surf lessons, horseback-riding through the Hollywood Hills, wine tasting in Malibu, sound healing therapy courses, Physique 57 barre workouts, and denim customisation.
5. Noel Hernandez, Managing Director
Our last but certainly not least favourite aspect of AKA is the current Managing Director, Noel Hernandez. A man of impeccable standards who doesn’t believe in saying the word no to his guests. Making AKA (in our opinion) the only place to stay when in LA if you’re seeking space, privacy, comfort, style and the word, YES.
