4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Went to NYC for a few days to celebrate a friends 50th birthday - was looking for someplace uptown to stay that was close to transportation, nice accommodations, and reasonably priced. Aloft fit the bill very nicely. Staff was very pleasant and helpful (with one very minor exception) and room was comfortable. I also needed to visit Manhattan School of... More

I liked our stay at the Harlem Aloft. There are many positives: fairly new, very clean, contemporary design, and friendly staff. The total cost per night was $202, including taxes, so a reasonable price for Manhattan. The location might not be ideal for most tourists, but if you want to visit Harlem, this is the place. It's only one block... More

My son and I just celebrated our birthdays by spending a weekend in Harlem. We chose Aloft Hotel for its proximity to both Minton's Jazz Club (where we had dinner reservations) and The Apollo (where we had tickets for the Saturday night performance if Africa Now!). What a good decision that was! From the night club in the lobby, to... More

I didn't know about this chain but happy we discovered Aloft. We stayed in the Harlem location around Fred Douglas Blvd and 124th Street to be close to Columbia University. The boutique Hotel is definitely going for a hipster funky feel, but keeping things simple re cost. For ex., handmade flannel curtain to cover the closet, sliding door that covers... More

My husband and I had to be in Manhattan bright and early Saturday morning to attend a seminar, so we decided to make a weekend of it. The Aloft is the nicest hotel by far in the area. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly, which is much appreciated since my husband is blind. We had a spacious room with... More

Make sure you stay away from rooms on the second floor on Friday and Saturday nights because the lobby of the hotel (that is right underneath you) practically turns into a NIGHTCLUB. Without having been told this whatsoever, I had to sit through music blasting into my room starting around midnight. At 12:12, we called down to reception complaining that... More

This is a nice small hotel. Part of a chain it has some local touches in the decor. Room was small ( this is NYC after all) and very quiet. Breakfast is nothing exciting, but certainly fine. Staff were all great

I just got back from New York and during my stay in Harlem I stayed at this nice hotel. Staff is very friendly and its location in Harlem provides quick access to many establishments and places of interest in the area. I will be staying here again very soon. Rooms are very spacious for being in New York!

I stayed at the Harlem Aloft for 4 nights while at a conference at City College New York. The location was close to the conference and this was a big advantage.
