I'm a Harlem native and I enjoyed staying at the Aloft whenever I returned there from my present home in LA. It's simple, comfortable and funky. You have to be sure to get a room higher than the second floor because foot traffic will force your window shades to remain closed or else people will see you in your illuminated... More

Had a really nice stay here. Was quiet, all the staff were friendly, clean rooms with air-conditioning. It's also easily accessible by subway just a few minutes walk from 125 Street, which is on the A express line. Nothing negative to say at all! Would definitely go again.

I'll admit to being a little wary of the location, but my husband I felt safe the whole time. The hotel is located just one block away from subway access. Only two stops to Times Square and a short train ride away from Yankee Stadium. This hotel put us in the middle of everything we needed. Staff was friendly and... More

This is the Starwood version of a Novotel but with much more comfortable sheets and better designed, larger rooms. Very limited service (no fancy breakfast room) but simple counters with OK food selections. Mostly cold food but a little bit of hot food (which honestly was disappointing). Good sized bar with bar snacks that I only found out about as... More

Aloft Harlem is essentially a baby version of the W sporting a youthful atmosphere. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable and we were provided two free bottles of water. Columbia University and "the Seinfeld diner" are within walking distance and Harlem makes for a quick entrance and exit of the city via car. Valet parking is $50 a... More

Harlem needs a nice hotel!! I checked Trip Advisor and a few other websites and Aloft received the best reviews. Because it was a part of the Starwood chain of hotels, I was encouraged that the property would be nice. The experience was a disappointment. The bed was uncomfortably hard, the air conditioning cycled 'on and off' all evening and... More

If you're visiting Columbia University - or Grant's Tomb - this is a convenient location, right off the main drag of 125th Street in Harlem. Clean rooms, pleasant staff, and free bottled water are among the "pros." "Cons" include no parking garage [though cheap street parking is nearby - watch for restrictions on street cleaning days], very steep steps to... More

We love staying at the Aloft Harlem. The rooms are very clean and the service is excellent. Subways are close by and we had no problems getting around the city. I think it is a little overpriced for the area.

We statyed at this hotel while visiting New York. While the price boasts "upscale" the hotel on the inside looked like an eclectic mess. The room was not spacious at all and the room had this "cold" feel to it. No warm home away from home kind of feeling. No curtains, or pictures to give it a more welcoming look... More

We stayed only for one night, but the hotel was very clean, the furniture was brand new, the front desk people were helpful since I booked it in the same night we checked in and in this sense the price was good for a last minute place in New York. It was my first time in Aloft and I strongly... More
