We stayed 3 nights to attend graduation at Columbia University, and really enjoyed our stay. Not located near the hot tourist attractions like Times Square, Rockefeller Center, etc, but conveniently located (about 15 minute walk) to Columbia and about 5-10 minute walk to Central park.. The hotel is clean and comfortable, and reasonably priced compared to similar hotels. We would...

I was in NYC (Harlem) for business and came upon this great hotel experience. I had to check in late, but it was no problem for the competent staff. My room was spacious and comfortable, and the amenities were more than adequate. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it to others anytime. Thank you, Aloft!

I live in CT but needed to be in Harlem working for a couple of days. This was the perfect choice for me. The location was great, the "feel" of the place was modern, friendly, warm and welcoming. My room was clean and quite comfortable. Nice places to eat within walking distance. There was an issue with the WIFI on...

Having some business to do in Harlem, I was advised to stay at Aloft Harlem. It is indeed a very nice hotel. Clean, modern with well appointed rooms including plenty of plugs, which sometimes are difficult to find in hotels. Area near the check-in desk with available foods including a good breakfast assortment to eat with the complementary coffee. Only...

In NYC for New Years. Wanted to avoid crazy Midtown. This hotel is a block and a half from subway. Reasonably priced by New York standards. Fun bar with a great bar tender, Brian. Rooms are clean and very functional We would stay again.

Was worried about location but was very pleased. 2 blocks to subway station. Walking distance to Apollo and Red Rooster. Loved Ginny's Supper Club. Hip location and employees very pleasant. We had a huge room and the free bottles of water gave it a 5 star rating. It would be nice to have breakfast available but options were available. Close...

If a hotel could be rated on service would give it six stars. From GM to front desk everyone was super helpful and friendly. The hotel is "easy", and walking distance to a variety of restaurants and malls as well as a stone's throw from legendary Apollo Theater. The rooms are comfy and have all the amenities needed without many...

I had to take an overnight trip to a meeting at Columbia. I wanted to be close to the campus and so searched for a nearby hotel. I had seen Aloft hotels in other cities, but had never stayed in one. I am pleased I chose Aloft. Not only was I able to walk to all of my destinations, the...

We recently stayed here for 1 night. I used to work in the city but never been up in this neighborhood. So I wanted to try it. A pleasant surprise! It's not the Ritz but I love the modern vibe at this property. Staff were polite and courteous. In the lobby and your room there's free coffee tea n hot...
