AKA Rittenhouse Square

135 S. 18th St., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 19103, USA

Though steps away from the popular park and surrounding shopping, the AKA Rittenhouse Square operates in a below-the-radar fashion favored by visiting actors and athletes. A former apartment building, the property offers homey studios and one- and two-bedroom suites with lots of closet space; all have full kitchens with dishes, glassware, and large, stainless-steel refrigerators. Elegant marble-filled bathrooms feature large glass-enclosed showers. The hotel's restaurant, a.kitchen, offers European-inspired small plates in a refreshingly down-home bistro atmosphere that looks out on 18th Street; the adjoining a.bar, which faces out to Walnut Street, is one of Rittenhouse's best places for well-made cocktails and people-watching.
