Hotel Description

Rittenhouse Square was the first of what’s now a rapidly expanding group of extended-stay apartments under the AKA banner. And after a thorough renovation, this Beaux-Arts building is back with a new contemporary redesign and a bit of a tweak to its business model — AKA Rittenhouse Square’s apartments are now available for short hotel-style stays.

Though the look is still somewhat traditional, to suit the building and the classic neighborhood, the studios and one- and two-bedroom suites are looking sharp — and they’re equipped with full kitchens, marble or granite baths, and Bulgari bath products. New Penthouse Suites and Sky Suites, designed by architects Nicholas Cardone and Edward Asfour, take things in a moodier, more modernist direction, with a monochrome color scheme and an abundance of artworks.

You’re welcome to live as independently as you like — you’ve got all the necessities for a truly residential experience. But you’ve also got AKA’s Resident Services team on your side, doing everything a hotel concierge could do. You’ve also got a.kitchen, a restaurant by Eli Kulp and Ellen Yin, of Fork fame, free access to the Sporting Club at the Bellevue, as well as all the best of Philadelphia’s Center City district’s shopping, dining, and entertainment right at your feet.
