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

I will start by saying Im a Starwood guy, and know the Aloft brand well, so I know what to expect when making a reservation. My wife and I were in town for some holiday parties, and since it was the holiday time, every single hotel brand (other Starwood brands included) had astronomical room rates.....like stupid expensive.

My daughter and I stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend (Wednesday - Saturday). The hotel is edgy and cool. There were restaurants and some shopping nearby. The subway was walkable. Our rooms were very nice. The front desk was friendly and helpful. There is a snack bar available 24hrs with fresh fruit, drinks and snacks. They also have a full service... More

I liked the place. A pretty sketchy neighborhood but an overall very clean and quiet hotel. They also had free coffee in the morning that was delicious! But I did give them 2 stars and this is why. The hotel had in their computer system that we were supposed to only be there for 1 night (which we didn't know)... More

We spent 2 nights at Aloft : attended a wedding at the beautiful Riverside Church less than a mile away. Staff were very helpful with directions, subway travel, and just very friendly in greetings each day. The rooms are clean, and eco conscious. Bedroom area is small but the bed is very comfortable. Nice big walk in shower. Nice and... More

Location is super close to the subway. Hotel is modern and rooms are huge - which is hard to find in NYC and much appreciated. Area is safe. Free wifi. Hotel staff are amazing. If you like to walk - walk all the way down the Upper West Side..to Times Square etc.

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.
