Chose Aloft Harlem as it is near Columbia University and we were here to visit grandson. The room was clean, sleek, and modern--every inch of space used efficiently. Nice bathroom area and shower. Bed was very comfortable with a wall to wall window facing the street. The staff at check-in was courteous and helpful. Bar area was lively and busy... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for a 50th birthday celebration. It is in a great location, close to alot of clothing stores & also close to the Subway. The employees were nice and helpful, especially with taxis & information about surrounding events. Check in was a breeze. The room was a very good size, especially for NYC. The room... More

Lived up to Aloft expectations -good funky decor, decent rooms. Initially had concerns about staying in the Harlem area, but it didn't feel unsafe at all. If visiting as a tourist, this is a little far away from the attractions, but the train station is nearby and there are express trains to downtown where it's easy to switch to another... More

I have stayed here twice. The room I had during my first stay was spacious, the second time it was a bit small and claustrophobic. On both occasions the room was clean and well appointed. The hotel is not great, but the beds are GREAT. The only slight negative point is the front desk staff. In general, they act as... More

Staff are great. Rooms were clean (but noticeable stain on carpet). We paid for the breakfast rate. Breakfast was juice and a piece of fruit plus a Danish or croissant. The baked goods were not very good--very dry. I would suggest saving money on the room rate and buy breakfast down the street--better price, better food. Fair rate for NYC.

My first stay in Harlem and I'll be back! This is a very cool hotel, convenient to subway and bus lines. There's an outdoor firepit-type area with comfortable chairs right outside the lobby and the bar on the sub-ground floor. Great decor and the friendliest staff. I was going downtown for dinner but they offered me a list of local... More

I picked the Aloft in spite of all my friends telling me I should not stay in Harlem as a first time visitor to NYC. I was travelling alone and I can tell you upon my arrival I was greeted by a weirdo standing at the entrance of the hotel. I reported it to the staff (Jeanet -sorry not sure... More

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
