So I would normally have given this hotel 4 stars: room was a good size for New York; everything was clean and new in the room (the safe didn't work but was promptly repaired); and the location was great, being close to the Apollo and 125th St and not far from subway. But I deducted a point due to a... More

The location was great. The room was nice. It was very clean. The wi-fi was a bit slow and we would get randomly disconnected The valet parking was very convenient but very expensive. I have a mini van and it was $55.00 per day plus $10.00 tax.

Everything exceeded my expectations from the staff to the room itself. I was pleasantly surprised. This hotel has a "New Harlem boutique vibe" The front desk staff was friendly and accommodating to any requests that I had. My room was a decent size for a New York hotel and was very clean. I also liked that they offer DirecTV with... More

I was booking rooms at this hotel for family members to stay for a funeral. I was unsure of the number of rooms I needed but they told me I had until midnight Friday to cancel and make any changes. I called on the Friday to make changes as some family members were unable to attend. They told me that... More

We stayed at the Aloft hotel on 1/16/16 for our friend's birthday weekend in Harlem. We were very impressed from the minute we arrived. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was a good size and nicely decorated. Bed was so comfortable. I also liked the safety feature that you needed your hotel key in order to access... More

The Aloft Harlem was a pretty nice little spot. The room was sufficiently sized, though the bathroom was a bit odd in terms of blocking off for privacy. The windows didn't open, and the room got a bit stuffy... and I could not find a thermostat anywhere, so that was a bit disappointing. But the bed was comfortable. I stayed... More

The ultimate compliment for a hotel is a return visit. This was our second stay at the Aloft Harlem, and I hope to return again. The Aloft is in a convenient location in Harlem. If you want to see the tourist attractions in Manhattan, this might not be a good choice, but it is only two blocks to the subway... More

Check in was late at night and seemless. The staff were friendly, efficient and informative. The room was divided into a sleeping area separate from the shower toilet area. Bed was comfortable and heard no noise so had good night sleep. Will stay again.

This hotel has definitely gone downhill!!! The carpet is stained, the heat does work.. Please pay the extra $,s and stay Midtown. Not clear why the property "uptown " is not representative of the Starwood brand at all!! It's 37 degrees outside and on top of everything the heat is not working and we're still waiting for an engineer !!!!

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.
