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

This hotel has very comfortable beds, clean, updated bathrooms, free bottled water, nice lobby and bar area, but most notable is the staff. Everyone we dealt with was pleasant and tried to accommodate all of our needs. The location is great, easy access to all transportation, about 20 minutes from LaGuardia. Shopping, good restaurants, grocery stores are all within walking... More

We stayed at this location for two nights on a quick getaway to NYC to see a few shows and tour around. Have never stayed north of Central Park, but absolutely loved it. This location is steps from the Apollo Theater, about a block and a half from the A train (2 stops on the express to Times Square), about... More

Stayed there for two days and it was really nice and clean the beds were comfortable and the room was great for catching up on some sleep. The down stairs bar area is an extra treat and as far as mingling with the Harlem nights. I loved the fact that you could walk to the subway and there was a... More

We stayed here for our anniversary. The lobby is a bit small, but the young lady at the desk on Friday was excellent. The rooms were nice and chic. The fitness center was great (the water cooler was empty). The staff for the continental breakfast was very accommodating. I love Harlem and will definitely stay here again.

We stayed for 5 nights at the beginning of August. The location was perfect for access to Columbia University. The rooms are good, clean, predictable, and the bed was wonderful. The staff was tremendous; friendly, helpful, and courteous. The only major flaw (and it is a "structural" flaw) is the way that the room/lighting is laid out. Assuming that all... More

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.
