AKA University City
The light-filled West Philadelphia suites at AKA University City welcome guests with high ceilings, open kitchens and prime views of the city.
Each of the three possible options — studio, one-bedroom suite or two-bedroom suite — is outfitted with a spa-like marble bath, king bed and Italian-inspired accents.
Beyond the suite, guests can enjoy the property’s glassed-in, rooftop Olympic-size pool, 3D golf simulator, roof deck with fire pits and access to Cira Green, another rooftop space — this one, a 1.25-acre park.
Located in the heart of Philadelphia’s innovation and business district, AKA University City offers ultra-luxury hotel suites and apartment residences on the upper floors of Cira Centre South’s vertical neighborhood.
Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects with interiors and amenities from Piero Lissoni, the 49th floor of AKA University City at Cira Center South has a prominent place in the Philadelphia skyline — and the highest views of any residential building in the city.
The acclaimed all-day Walnut Street Café resides on the ground floor of Cira Centre South.
