Aloft Harlem is a good property. Great proximity to subway. Great location for dining choice and a very friendly staff. The rooms are very much European size, but with King size bed. I would recommend this place.

I stay at the Aloft Harlem at least once a month while in NYC on business. I never did enjoy the high end hotel experience with vast marble lobbies and $25 breakfast, but this is more like a home away from home. There are snacks available in the lobby, drinks in the bar, clean and bright rooms with plenty of...

We stayed here for 3 nights in Feburary. We are New Yorkers who needed a place while our apartment was being worked on. It was great to be able to bring our dog (they accept digs under 40lbs). We simply kept a room tag on the door when her was there and we didn't have to worry a bout housekeeping...

The front desk staff (especially Rachel) at the Aloft Harlem always greeted us warmly and were responsive to our needs. They gave us great restaurant recommendations (BLVD Bistro and Amy Ruth's) and seemed to genuinely want our New York visit to be memorable. Walking distance to the Apollo Theater, Studio Museum, subway station, and those great restaurants. We would definitely...

What a great deal for this wonderful convenient property. It's close to the Metro North Train line and 2 subway stops from Time Square. They had live jazz band playing in the evening perfect atmosphere for this Harlem location. A small bar and snack center. The staff was excellent and very helpful. I will use this location again.

Aloft was convenient to subway or bus lines in all directions and an easy shuttle or cab ride from LaGuardia. It was an easy walk to Columbia University, great restaurants or Starbucks. Upon entering (and our entire stay) the people behind the desk were friendly and helpful. The room was modern, well-kept and clean. Storage was at a minimum (no...

First, this is an excellent choice if you have business at Columbia. It's a 15 or 20 minute walk, and if you don't mind the climb, a shortcut through Morningside Park is a pleasant walk. Great variety of restaurants in the area. The rooms are much larger than anything farther south in Manhattan, and they have long desks with plenty...

My favorite hotel for business in NYC even though I could afford to pay more. Location is fantastic, in an authentic NYC neighborhood far from the tourist traps, super convenient to LaGuardia airport and a block and a half from the subway. It took me just 20 min to get to my midtown meeting door to door via the D...

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...
