A surprisingly nice, trendy place to stay. Clean, comfortable with good staff and the security measures for access to the elevators was a nice touch. Conveniently located at a reasonable price considering it's New York.

First the staff were great, check in, house keeping, security etc. I was preparing for a presentation and housekeeping waited to the afternoon to disturb me and asked if I needed service which I really appreciate. I was able to work uninterrupted throughout the morning. They did not try to rush me out of the room so that was great.... More

I loved everything about this hotel. The location cannot be beat. Harlem is safe and full of culture and vibrancy. It is not the "bad" neighbourhood that used to be portrayed in the movies. It's a fantastic spot which I felt very safe in. Harlem is a particularly great place to stay if you want easy access to Manhattan via... More

I like the aloft hotels so was happy to stay here. The room is comfortable and the gym downstairs has everything you need (it was freezing to run outside when I was there), if the weathers good, go for a run to Central Park instead! The areas not amazing and I couldn't find anywhere with healthy food which was disappointing.... More

Hotel, employees, situation, bar, etc... very fine BUT rooms are a pretty narrow and even if it is for 4 guests, there is no space for clothes or put your things, even for a single person ! This is not providing any feeling of holidays.. Windows can't be open, WiFi is erratic, capricious air conditioning and bathroom offers no intimacy... More

Me and my husband stayed in room 617 from 12/21 - 12/28. If you just need to sleep and shower this may be the place for you! Cons - I didn't care for the hanging sliding door to the bathroom in such a small room, it didn't feel "private" because, it's not! I would have enjoyed a place to soak... More

The room was comfortable and clean, and the staff were all friendly. Nice bar area. No restaurant so the breakfast choices were few. Plenty of places to get breakfast nearby. Great location near Apollo Theatre, movie theatre, Columbia U. Would stay again.

Staying in Harlem

Neighborhood Profile
Harlem
As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has played a vital role in the history of New York City. Today, the neighborhood is as vibrant as ever as new businesses and developments go up next to local institutions. The heart of the neighborhood is bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and you’ll discover some of the most beautiful blocks in the city, filled with handsome brownstones, soul food restaurants, corner shops, and scenic parks. For a taste of a real New York neighborhood, it’s hard to top a visit to Harlem.
