Suite Wheels at AKA

AKA, the nine-property brand of luxury extended-stay accommodations, recently introduced a mobile suite at its Beverly Hills, Calif., location in partnership with Airstream 2 Go. The 200-square-foot suite, which is 28 feet long, is connected to a GMC Yukon Denali and is meant to be used on a five-day journey to Santa Barbara to explore the local vineyards, beaches and hiking trails. AKA’s concierge can help plan an itinerary and arrange tours and excursions. Guests park the moving hotel room at an Airstream park in the area and also have the option to spend two nights at a villa at Sunstone Vineyards near Santa Barbara.
Amenities in the suite include Frette linens and bathrobes, Bulgari bath toiletries, a Nespresso coffee machine, a sitting and dining area, a fully equipped kitchenette, a bathroom with a shower and a flat-panel TV/DVD. It also has bikes, a gas grill and colorful accents from the California fashion designer Trina Turk such as throw pillows, coasters and an ice bucket. AKA’s president, Larry Korman, said that the to-go room is intended to offer the property’s guests a fun way to see a part of the scenic California coast.
“Most of our customers stay with us between two weeks and three months, so they get the feel of living like a local, but the suite gives them a chance to have a different experience of the area,” he said in a phone interview.
Prices start at $6,000 for five days and include a two-night stay at Sunstone Vineyards.
