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.

I booked this hotel thru a travel agent. My son and I spent 4 days there for Christmas it is a beautiful hotel. The one major issue I had was when we checked in on our first night. Which was after 10:00 that night. My travel agent didn't mention there is $100.00 deposit for incidentals. Which after 3-5 business days... More

We reserved this room just to have a place to sleep and shower. The location was perfect for what we needed (proximity to family - otherwise we would have stayed in midtown). It served its purpose. But the bed was so hard that I could not sleep well. The mattress is comparable to a futon mattress. But the room is... More

Hope my review doesn't hike rates! Not fancy BUT funky-modern-colorful but subdued. Rooms clean-warm-well kept-friendly professional staff. All one needs! Hotel is safe - elevators run with room keys so no one can get to rooms with out keys. The down side is that it does get a lot of city noise but hey it is NYC.

I am currently staying at this property. I must say that the hotel staff is helpful and beyond wonderful when accommodating guests. All of the staff have been truly pleasant. There is a bar, which serves tapas-style bar food. Plenty of upscale decor and trendy music keep the lobby a welcoming and busy place. However, here are my concerns (note:... More

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.
