Everything was just right. Great location, lovely property, prompt & friendly staff, very nice room, clean and QUIET (this seems to be almost unheard of in hotels anymore). We usually stay at the Park Plaza but it was booked. I would stay here again.

This was a lovely 12-hour stay in Boston. The valet check in was the warmest we have ever received. Reception check in was equally friend. The entire staff went out of their way to be kind and warm and funny. We stay in Boston hotels at least once a year and this was our first time at AKA. It has easily risen to the top. Can’t wait to be back. Kudos to the leadership team!
