Every day, for work or play, Torontonians hop on the one-hour flight to NYC. Nothing beats a stroll in Central Park, a Broadway show, champagne brunches or the Michelin stars that even Toronto’s best restaurants are missing.
Pied-de-terre is the new penthouse
If you are lucky enough to need exceptional accommodations for more than just a few nights, many New York hotels offer tired, smaller than average rooms (even for those of us from the 6ix). Meet the AKA Wall Street, a fresh and pleasantly spacious alternative in an elegant corner of the financial district offering a refined, yet authentic experience. It strikes a perfect balance between the hospitality and amenities of an intimate hotel and the comfort of a fully equipped luxury residence.
Room(y) for the whole family
Settle into the AKA Wall Street not just for its generous rooms and 19th-storey outdoor rooftop cinema, but also for the thoughtful design by Edward Asfour of Asfour Guzy Architects, whose nuanced details and refined natural materials provide inspiration to take back home to our own spaces.
With ample closet space and mattresses designed exclusively for AKA, prepare to escape from the pace of daily life and don’t hold back when you pack…or when you’re shopping at Bergdorf Goodman.
With locations in New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Beverly Hills and London, the AKA is a luxury extended-stay brand we’ll be watching.
