Only blocks from a subway stop and busy 125th St. is this marvelous hotel. Check in is not your usual with staff right up front and even keys work a little differently. Spacious room for NYC with everything a traveler could ask for.

Aloft Harlem is a great hotel that I found by accident. But I’m glad I did. I was here June 26 to June 28th. The location is a block and a half from the 125th street subway station and there are many great places in the neighborhood for eating, drinking, and socializing. The hotel was clean and the staff was... More

Friendly and helpful staff, great location for walking and accessing subways. Good variety of food for purchase and a small bar. We stayed three nights. The bed was just a bit hard and the air conditioner pretty loud, otherwise a nice experience. We would stay here again.

Since my normal B&B was booked, I had walked by the Aloft hotel in the past and decided to try it as I had stayed at this chain before. Rooms are the same as other Aloft hotels I had stayed at; clean, comfortable, relaxing. Only slight problem was being on the 124th side of the building in that the garbage... More

I stayed at this hotel for a family function. The rooms are very modern and spacious. The staff is friendly and the food is priced as you'd figure hotel food to be. The day of checkout, though, we checked our bags to explore the city for a few hours. I made a point to count the money in my wallet... More

Our primary reason for booking this hotel was the price and the fact that this is a Starwood property. Good hotel deals are hard to come by in Manhattan. This hotel, while out of the way, is on the metro line and the closest station is a stop on one of the express trains, shortening the journey downtown. The hotel... More

A great little hotel for our week in NYC. It's close to the subway and the airport bus so it makes things pretty easy. the room was good and a good little back yard view. Very mod even a concert night in the bar 1 night. Only issue for us was no opening window for fresh air.

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.

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.
