The hotel was nice and clean. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The set up of the room was cute and modern. The 24 grab and go bar is a plus for late night snacking.

Great Hotel - Wonderful Staff

The Aloft Harlem was a GREAT Hotel. All of the staff were VERY friendly and helpful. Wasn't sure about staying in far away Harlem (from Times Square), but the subway stop is just 2 short blocks away from the Hotel and the D line skips most of the stops till you get to the attractions such as Rockefeller Center, Macy's, etc. Nice bar, ReCharge zone and good value. Would definitely stay here again!

Aloft Harlem

I stayed in Aloft Harlem for one night. The room was nice, the bed was comfortable, and the shower was cool. It's a little pricey, but so is everything else in New York City.

Quick NYC Vacation

The hotel is a little gem in Harlem. Area was not the best for walking, but there were some nice places close by and some pretty good access to subway. We would definitely stay again when visiting our grandchildren.
