Aloft is a boutique hotel. Positives: Very clean and comfortable. Lots of comfy pillows on the bed. We took advantage of the stay one night & second night rate is your birthyear. (i.e. born in 1970, pay $70 on the 2nd night), which was a very good deal as I am old! However, the clerk checked me in as being born in 1990 instead of 1954. Luckily I checked it in the morning and had it changed to the correct year. Overall, rooms were large, very nice with a hip vibe, price was good. Negatives were: 1. DJ playing in the bar on Friday & Saturday night - so loud we couldn't hear the clerk when we were checking in. Couldn't wait to get out of there and up to our room, which was quiet. 2. We reserved a king bed, and were sent to a room with a queen. They told us they were sold out & that was the only room, even though we had called earlier to see if we needed to check in earlier to get one, and they had said no. They did move us to a room w/2 queens after we told them we can't fit into one queen (very tall husband). 3. Bathrooms have sliding doors that have gaps, so not very private. 4. Room lighting is problematic. In order to have light in the bathroom, had to put on a light that lit up the whole bedroom (at least in room 623), so was disturbing to the one who wanted to sleep late. Hallway lighting was rather dim. They have an option where you can forgo housekeeping and get $5.00 credit for a drink at the bar, but who wants to sit in a bar with mind-numbingly loud music? In the morning I could see that the lounge looked kind of nice, and might have been a nice place for an evening drink, but not with that music. Maybe there's no DJ during the week. All things considered, I would return to Aloft Harlem again and would recommend it to friends.
