At the suggestion of a friend my fiancé and I booked this hotel when we attended the funeral of a lifelong friend. Having been NYC born and raised and knowing what Harlem was like when I was growing up, Harlem today and the way it has changed was a real eye opening experience! We felt safe at all times and...

As a moderately priced hotel -by New York standards - this is great value. The rooms are modern, clean, and have the basic amenities. Staff were friendly and eager to help. There is a coffee maker and hair dryer in the room, but soap and shampoo was provided by a dispenser in the shower. I did choose the cheapest room... More

Stayed two nights and found the property clean and comfortable. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Location was central and near center of Harlem. The food service area was being inspected by NYC Food inspectors and all appeared sanitary.

Very cool hotel -friendly staff, comfortable room, great lobby, super clean, convenient setting. Short walk to great restaurants and the Apollo. 2 blocks to the subway and a quick ride into the city. For a 3-night stay, spent half the money I would have in midtown. Definitely recommended.

Stayed at the Aloft in October, 2014 while visiting my Columbia University daughter for 5 days. A convenient and nice walk to campus from the Aloft Harlem location. Comfortable, clean accommodations (remember Aloft is modern, but not fancy, but has everything you need with a little refrig in room). Staff friendly. Even if there had been other hotel choices around... More

Stayed here several times particularly when I wanted to be close to the legendary Apollo Theatre on West 125th Street in Central Harlem. Very comfortable and intimate atmosphere. Highly recomend. Bob Stebbings

Recently stayed here with my husband and 9 month old daughter, while he attended a conference at Columbia. I was worried about the location, but felt fine walking with my daughter to the campus area. Nice hotel and nice staff. The breakfast is ok if you are in a pinch for food, otherwise walk 3 blocks over to Amsterdam and... More

This was nice hotel with larger than average room sizes for NYC. Area can be a bit edgy at night but very vibrant during the day. Very convenient being close to 125th street Subway which is an express stop. Had real difficulties with my account though. Have been duplicate charged for 1300 dollars. Have rung the hotel twice but they... More

We have stayed at this hotel three times and would go back in a heartbeat. We chose it initially because of a Starwood discount, but we keep coming back because we have fallen in love with the hotel and the surrounding area. The hotel is super close to LaGuardia (about a $20 cab ride) and the staff is genuinely lovely... More

If you want an affordable hotel in this area this is the place. Nice hotel with extremely courteous and helpful staff. Lively bar with reasonable prices. Rooms are very clean and whilst not large they are very adequate. We will certainly stay in this hotel when we return.

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.
