This is the Starwood version of a Novotel but with much more comfortable sheets and better designed, larger rooms. Very limited service (no fancy breakfast room) but simple counters with OK food selections. Mostly cold food but a little bit of hot food (which honestly was disappointing). Good sized bar with bar snacks that I only found out about as... More

Aloft Harlem is essentially a baby version of the W sporting a youthful atmosphere. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable and we were provided two free bottles of water. Columbia University and "the Seinfeld diner" are within walking distance and Harlem makes for a quick entrance and exit of the city via car. Valet parking is $50 a... More

Harlem needs a nice hotel!! I checked Trip Advisor and a few other websites and Aloft received the best reviews. Because it was a part of the Starwood chain of hotels, I was encouraged that the property would be nice. The experience was a disappointment. The bed was uncomfortably hard, the air conditioning cycled 'on and off' all evening and... More

If you're visiting Columbia University - or Grant's Tomb - this is a convenient location, right off the main drag of 125th Street in Harlem. Clean rooms, pleasant staff, and free bottled water are among the "pros." "Cons" include no parking garage [though cheap street parking is nearby - watch for restrictions on street cleaning days], very steep steps to... More

We love staying at the Aloft Harlem. The rooms are very clean and the service is excellent. Subways are close by and we had no problems getting around the city. I think it is a little overpriced for the area.

We statyed at this hotel while visiting New York. While the price boasts "upscale" the hotel on the inside looked like an eclectic mess. The room was not spacious at all and the room had this "cold" feel to it. No warm home away from home kind of feeling. No curtains, or pictures to give it a more welcoming look... More

We stayed only for one night, but the hotel was very clean, the furniture was brand new, the front desk people were helpful since I booked it in the same night we checked in and in this sense the price was good for a last minute place in New York. It was my first time in Aloft and I strongly... More

This hotel has very comfortable beds, clean, updated bathrooms, free bottled water, nice lobby and bar area, but most notable is the staff. Everyone we dealt with was pleasant and tried to accommodate all of our needs. The location is great, easy access to all transportation, about 20 minutes from LaGuardia. Shopping, good restaurants, grocery stores are all within walking... More

We stayed at this location for two nights on a quick getaway to NYC to see a few shows and tour around. Have never stayed north of Central Park, but absolutely loved it. This location is steps from the Apollo Theater, about a block and a half from the A train (2 stops on the express to Times Square), about... More

Stayed there for two days and it was really nice and clean the beds were comfortable and the room was great for catching up on some sleep. The down stairs bar area is an extra treat and as far as mingling with the Harlem nights. I loved the fact that you could walk to the subway and there was a... More
