High-End Extended-Stay Hotels
by Marissa Patlingrao Cooley
Though they’ve traditionally been the domain of traveling business consultants and in-the-doghouse husbands, a new breed of longer-term lodgings has arrived – ones with rooms that are more like a luxe pied-à-terre than a motel. And this means you’ll actually feel comfortable getting cozy on the couch.
AKA Hotels: More like deluxe condos than Residence Inns, the eight locations of this swank chain are ideal for playing host. Penthouses are outfitted with wood-burning outdoor fireplaces, mid-century-inspired furniture, and wet bars. And to help you make the most of your locale, the concierge can arrange in-suite wine tastings or classes from star chefs. New York City, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., White Plains, N.Y., and Arlington, Va., 866-AKA-9999, hotelaka.com: weekly rates from $190 per night.
