AKA Times Square

AKA Times Square, 123 West 44th St., New York, NY, 10036, USA.

AKA Times Square, ideally situated between the heart of theater district on Broadway (7th Ave) and the corporate corridor of Avenue of the Americas (6th Ave), is a superb location for business travelers as well as visitors seeking the best of Manhattan’s dining, entertainment and nightlife scene.

Designed in 1893 by famed architect George Keister, the late Romanesque revival high rise sits on a quiet stretch of West 44th Street. This year, the New York City extended stay building was completely redesigned and renovated by a team of top architects and boasts 105 contemporary residences and sophisticated amenities, including two story lounge, envisioned by internationally acclaimed architect and designer, Piero Lissoni – with business, wellness and leisure offerings, and a spectacular roof top terrace.

AKA Times Square luxury extended stay is steps from notable attractions such as ABC’s Times Square Studios and the Nasdaq HQ. There are also many exciting restaurants, shopping and theaters within a few block radius. In addition to being located at the heart of the Times Square lights display, AKA is also close to Bryant Park, (where you can ice skate in winter or watch the hottest Broadway shows in the summer); as well as other nearby landmarks – Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, The International Center of Photography and the historic Belasco Theater, just next door. And, the Times Square transportation hub is just 1 block away, providing convenient access to any destination in the city.

AKA Times Square furnished apartments and serviced residences provides a tranquil environment for stays of one week or many months, offering 105 spacious studios, one and two bedroom suites and two story Times Square penthouses, all featuring full kitchens with high end appliances.

In 1981, the former Hotel Gerard was designated a national Historic Landmark. Designed in 1893 by famed architect George Keister, the façade is designed in a late Romanesque Revival manner, punctuated by Gothic and Renaissance details derived from German sources, marking the design’s rather unique expression (other architects drew from Italian and French sources) in a time of stylistic transition overall. In other words, it’s the picturesque combination of the late Romanesque Revival with German Gothic and Renaissance forms that makes the façade so interesting and magnificent.
