Our room with sleek appliances and furniture provided a calm and modern atmosphere. Complimentary bottles of water waiting for guests in the room and $5.00 coupon per night offered if you chose not to have room service. The hallway was quite hot and gloomy. The 24/7 self-service food called "Re-fuel" was very convenient. Lots of choices for breakfast, and the... More

The Aloft brand has been around for awhile, and some may find their style trendy. But I really like the hotel. It's uncluttered and this hotel has the front desk right next to breakfast area, and within site of the bar and right in front of the main revolving door. You are always greeted, the staff make you feel welcome,... More

I have always stayed near the Village or in Midtown, but I had the chance to stay at this hotel and I was very impressed. The hotel itself is modern, clean, rooms are great, service outstanding! The location is an absolute joy. Harlem is a vibrant area of NYC that is often missed by tourists. Incredible local food and vibe.... More

Coming to visit Union Theological and read good reviews about Aloft Harlem. The comparison cost was really attractive. When I made the reservation there was no instructions about parking and it said "valet" so I assumed there would be someone at the front of the hotel to take our vehicle. But when we arrived that was not so and there... More

We stayed two nights while my husband attended a conference at nearby Columbia University. The room was clean and well appointed, but it's the staff that make this hotel stand out. Everyone from the front desk to the cleaners were first class.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for New Year 2016, as a treat to celebrate our 15 year anniversary - I had been slightly concerned with the area, as I had heard there could be some issues with safety, but considering every other reasonable quality hotel cost over a thousand dollars for a four night stay, we went for it...

I stayed for just one night at Aloft Harlem while attending a workshop at Columbia University. The front desk staff were polite and helpful (I arrived late and hungry). There was food available at either the Re-Fuel area or the bar late on a Sunday night. The lobby area is quite nice, with local art displayed and lots of comfortable... More

My wife and I stayed for four nights to see our son get his new degree. This hotel is very convenient for access to the Columbia campus (we walked) and the subway is even closer.

My room was on the 3rd floor. I had a corner room which is usually a bit bigger than most other rooms. It was nice and clean. The room itself was modern and the bed was very comfortable.

This hotel in the heart of Harlem was surprisingly decent despite my lower expectations. My expectations were due to the outside that sort of resembled a YMCA facility. However, the rooms were well accented and the fact that they use Blush soap and lotions was a real plus. I paid $200 on a value deal and got great value for... More
