Reviews summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI

The AKA West Palm hotel garners praise for its modern atmosphere and prime location that's walking distance from local attractions, beaches, and dining options. While the rooms are celebrated for their cleanliness and practical amenities such as kitchenettes and laundry facilities, guests have expressed that they can feel compact. The service is generally commended for its friendliness, although there are occasional concerns regarding understaffing. Despite the added convenience, some travelers are critical of the unexpected fees that can affect the overall perceived value of their stay.

Hotel's Favourite
5.0 of 5 bubbles
I was initially hesitant to stay at AKA since it was a fairly new home; however during my first few interactions both via email and phone calls - I felt that the staff was so attentive.. so much so that I cancel my previously booked hotel reservation and switched to AKA West Palm.

The rooms are clean and spacious, I loved that the accommodated my request for a balcony. Every morning I sat out in the balcony chair and enjoyed my complimentary coffee. I was hoping that the restaurant that serves breakfast would be open, but looks like that was delayed, I am so very much looking to going back not only for the stay but for the restaurant.

To make up for it, AKA offered complimentary breakfast with pastries from the local bakery and fresh coffee and Orange Juice. Whenever I needed anything, they communicated to me via text message. .. whether it be more towels or making sure my uber eats delivery made it's way to my room.

This is a gorgeous hotel where you can take in the beautiful views, even with the current construction everything was peaceful, I would have never guessed they were building; the rooms must be sound proof lol. Also the full kitchen with a washer/dryer came in so handy!! I washed my clothes and repacked before my flight back home... made things easier. I can't wait to come back to try the restaurant, the complimentary bikes and the pool!

thank you AKA hotel! I can't wait to return!

We have been coming to Palm Beach area for years to escape the Northeast cold for 3 months at least.

We love PB and have spent time at The Breakers, The Four Seasons, The Hilton, The Ben, Airbnbs and Vrbos. This time we were so lucky to snag this luxurious apartment:

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite with lots of light and a nice balcony overlooking the pool. The suite has a beautiful kitchen, stocked with everything we needed, and includes a dishwasher and washer & dryer in the unit.

AKA Residence has a fabulous gym, parking on-site and is in the best location in West Palm Beach just a few steps from the Hilton Canopy. It’s also walking distance to some of the most renowned restaurants and cafes in Florida: Sassafras, Il Belaggio, The Avocado Grill, Loic Bakery, and more.

AKA is located a few blocks from the Harbor, Trinity Park, Clematis Street and Rosemary Street with its many shops and restaurants. It's also short walk to one of the best comedy clubs in US as well as the Kravits Center for the Performing arts where we attended a Broadway Show and a classical music concert.

We loved the free bikes with helmets (we biked everywhere).

We are planning on coming back next season for at least 6 weeks. To sum it up, the facility is a luxury building and everything is new. We highly recommend staying here.
FYI: the front desk manager Albir went out of his way to make our stay a memorable one.

I had a great time at this hotel! The location is in a safe fancy area of downtown West Palm Beach and it is close to Rosemary Square and the bridge leading to Palm Beach. I felt safe during my entire stay and I loved how quiet it was.

The room was clean and nicely designed. It had amenities such as the dish washer, refrigerator, Nespresso machine, microwave, stove/ oven and washer. It seemed like a furnished apartment!

This hotel also has a swimming pool and gym on the 4th floor.

The housekeeping staff were friendly and the front desk receptionist was always attentive to my needs. My only concern was that there were times when there was only one person at the front desk and people had to wait in line to be serviced. There should be at least two front desk receptionists to avoid situations like this.

Nevertheless, I had a fabulous stay at this hotel and I will definitely be staying here again when I am back in West Palm Beach.

We stayed at the AKA West Palm for 6 nights. It is located in Downtown West Palm Beach with convenient access and proximity to Palm Beach. There is onsite parking for a minimal price. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room, while not luxurious, is very clean and efficient. Our room had a living area with couch, work desk, full refrigerator, small steam washer/dryer, dishwasher, kitchen utensils and dishes, etc. The bedroom was separate, with comfortable bed and efficient bathroom. We took advantage of the free coffee and breakfast on the second floor every day of our stay. Also, short trip to PBI.

This hotel tries hard to be swanky and modern but fails in many ways.
The built in closest rods are not long enough - by at least 12 inches- to hang slacks without the bottom gathering on floor and wrinkling.
The hotel caters to business travelers but does not provide in iron in every room. You need to call the front desk to request an iron and they ask to return it when you’re done due to “many requests”. Also does not have a shredder on the grounds anywhere.
The hallways are bland and sterile.
Upon check in I was offered an upgrade at an additional charge only to find out others in my party were offered an upgrade at no charge.
The front desk staff works off portable laptops and are too busy surfing the web to actually help.
I will choose a different place to stay on my next trip

I stayed her for two nights to celebrate a birthday. The rooms are more of apartment style suites, equipped with a kitchen, dishwasher, laundry machine and very spacious living area.

The rooms were spotless and had everything you needed for your stay. The front desk personnel were extremely kind and accommodating.

This hotel is a short 10-minute walk to Clematis, so there’s plenty to ear or grab drinks.

Our studio had all the necessities - full kitchen with dish washer, washer and dryer. Little things like dish and laundry detergents and even a kitchen sponge. Love the white concept in the room. Free breakfast with fruits and authentic croissants. Surprise afternoon snacks from a French bakery across the street. Huge lounge and outdoor space.
A short walk to Palm Beach, vibrant Clematis and Square. Lots of restaurants and cafes.
Beautiful pool area; not a lap pool. It was a great stay with my husband. We are already planning on coming back next season for 6 weeks.
Free garage parking.
Staff worth mentioning: Paige, Davito, Brian, Albir, Ava, Donesha, Renee, Patrick.

They spent too much time and money trying to make this place look all glam, but there is zero substance. The bed was horribly uncomfortable, and what was supposed to be a “queen” was definitely a full size bed which made it that much more uncomfortable for us. There wasn’t a garbage can in the room or bathroom. The room was dusty. There was urine in the toilet when we arrived. When we approached Patty at the front desk about our concerns, we received attitude and also witnessed her attitude when handling similar customer concerns. For being a new hotel, I wouldn’t expect customer service to be so poor. I would recommend AKA West Palm try to put money into the basics before focusing on the glitz and glam because the glitz and glam doesn’t matter when you’re in a dirty , uncomfortable room run by sub par management.

Kaitlyn, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. The state of the room you describe is a far cry from the standards we seek to uphold, and I am deeply disappointed that this was your experience at our hotel. I will be sure to share your experience with housekeeping and guest services team so as to learn from this experience and make immediate improvements moving forward. While I understand that you may not be eager to return to our property, I sincerely hope you will consider this recent stay an aberration and not the norm, and afford us the opportunity to make this right on a future stay. We are eager to provide you with the service and accommodations that are befitting a true AKA West Palm experience. Humbly, Jordan Rowan General Manager
