AKA United Nations in Manhattan's historic Turtle Bay neighborhood is centered between the United Nations headquarters and the midtown business district surrounding Grand Central Terminal. This modern high rise offers sophistication, privacy, and attentive service.
Established in 2004.
AKA by Korman Communities is a product of four generations of Korman innovation, leadership, passion and hard work. Built on a sound foundation of family values laid a century ago, Korman Communities today represents creativity, integrity, market savvy, and proven performance in the real estate and investment arenas. Throughout its history, Korman family members have built more than 30,000 single-family homes, 10,000 apartments and 2 million square feet of retail and office space. In 2005, recognizing an unmet need in major cities for luxury extended stay apartments with hotel services, Korman created a new brand, AKA, with the purchase, renovation, and repositioning of eight high-rise properties in coveted urban areas, including four in midtown Manhattan. Today there are AKA's in New York City; Beverly Hills, CA; Washington, DC; Philadelphia, PA; and London, UK.

I hate to write a glowing review of the AKA at the UN because it's already hard to get a room (apartment) when I need one, but here goes. When I travel back to the city I want to feel like I'm "living" in New York, not staying in NY, That's what the AKA makes me feel like. These buildings are not just hotels, but rather residences that actual new yorkers live in. And the suite you get is great. A king sized bed in a seperate bedroom and a large living room with a kitchen. All done in a contemporary style that is clean with hardwood floors. My favorite feature at the UN AKA is that every suite has a balcony. The other AKA's in the city do not. Great neighborhood, great people. Reasonable prices for what you get. Well worth the extra dough to feel like you're living in the city.

One quick tip - Ask for a room with flat screen tvs. But beware you still won't have HD cable. Only downside of the place.
Now on to my observations. . . I went to visit my boyfriend who happens to be staying there for a few months. The hotel creates a nice enough apartment like feel - although the fact that there is housekeeping and the hotel white linens kills that facade a bit. Nevertheless, AKA.UN is in a great location, just a few blocks from Grand Central and all the major subway lines. We were able to jet down to Chelsea and the East Village quickly and easily.
But again, no HD cable? What's up with that. They lose a star for that.

I had some of the best days of my life when I stayed here. It was beautiful. The balcony was a bonus and feeling as if we were hidden from the rest of NYC was nice.
Our own escape within the concrete jungle. Who knew that one could lay low in a town full of so many people.
