As a native New Yorker now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, I was curious about what Harlem is like these days. With the Aloft Harlem offering a pretty good rate for a two day stay during an April business trip, I thought I'd give it a shot. Having done so, I'd go back to this hotel if the... More

I was wary at first due to the location but I had an awesome stay. The rooms are immaculate, spacious, and give a very pleasant vibe. I've since had friends stay here. Aloft is a great SPG concept - good job guys.

Great place to stay. Friendly ,courteous staff. Trendy decor,but comfortable atmosphere with a private courtyard . Large spacious rooms with comfortable beds. The bathroom has a Large walk-in shower with body gel/shampoo dispenser (which is much better than the tiny quarter sized soap bars other hotels give you) while the sink is outside of the bathroom.

Location good - close to subway, close to central park, close to Apollo. Typical trendy Aloft hotel. Nice large lobby and bar area. Nice terrace right outside front door in area some steps down from street level which gives it a feeling of a private terrace. Very friendly staff. Great value.

It all started with our desire to dine at The Red Rooster Restaurant for my birthday. Instead of staying in the heart of Manhattan, chose Aloft in Harlem. What a wonderful choice that turned out to be! Aloft is close to the vibrancy of 125th in Harlem. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The crowd is very diverse. We... More

I came here early in the morning to check- in and Ashton was kind enough to let me in early. He was really helpful and friendly. As far as the hotel goes, I liked it a lot. It was clean, well maintained with friendly staff. I would definitely recommend this place.

I decided to check out the Aloft boutique hotel so I could be closer to a friend who was staying at a nearby B&B. This turned out to be a hidden gem of an oasis. Aloft offers a funky, modern, clean and unpretentious alternative to staying in Manhattan. The staff are friendly and energetic although no one offered to assist... More

Three friends and I stayed at the Aloft in Harlem from June 16-19, 2014. It is a rare jewel, large, comfortable rooms with two queen beds, walk-in shower, colorful furniture, in a clean, safe location. But the staff members are the best reason for staying here, such cheerful, accommodating, friendly, and attractive young people. They are very helpful with directions,... More

We arrived at Aloft Harlem fairly early in the day before check in (10 AM). Since the room was available, the front desk allowed us to check in early - we didn't even ask! The rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel is just a 10 minute walk to Central park and 5 min walk to the nearest subway station.... More

This is a very nice hotel, "artistically put together" and the hotel's exterior and rooms are "a joy to view." Rooms were large and clean The staff were helpful especially the front desk. The price however; was too high. I should have looked around more.
