I really enjoyed this hotel. The one issue I had was when coming in late you have to search for your room key to show security before you can go up the elevator. I understand they don't want the bar patrons coming up to rooms, but still it's a hassle.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"visiting Columbia U - a great place to stay!"
Staff were extremely friendly, professional and sincere. Room was beautiful, big, cool and very comfortable. We arrived early, and were easily able to check in anyway. Easy walk to CU through park. Wall pumps for shampoo and body wash were a nice touch - much easier than the mini-bottles typically offered (I hope more hotels start using this approach!). […] Would absolutely stay there any time we visit Columbia again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My family and I thought that the pillows were terrible. I also have bad allergies and the air quality was not theraptic for me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the Apollo Theater"
Very comfortable, secure, clean, good service. Helpful and knowledgeable front desk personnel. Perfect location; short walking distance to the Apollo and subway/bus lines which I used from JFK and to LGA. Complimentary water, tea, and coffee, and a snack shop in the lobby. Will definitely return!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in a not so great location"
I really enjoyed my stay at aloft. The interiors were modern and trendy which I loved. The check in and check out was fast, and the rate per night was very reasonable. No downsides other than the fact that the area isn't great, but its close to the subway station anyway so the location wasn't an inconvenience at all. A nicer location would've been nice […] but I'm sure the rates wouldn't be as great if it were somewhere else. All in all I would stay again at aloft Harlem when I'm in New York Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Diamond in the Rough"
While Harlem sometimes gets a bad rap, this hotel is a shining example of the good things happening in this part of New York. It's conveniently located a block from the subway, so getting around New York is easy. The rooms are small but functional and clean. The staff was responsive about everything we asked for. There's a large TV and free internet […] in the room. The price was great for New York. We felt safe walking around - sometimes to 10-11 p.m. Some new restauranats are emerging within walking distance that are very good and reasonably priced. A Starbucks is one block down and one block over. We'll stay there again on our next trip. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel in Harlem"
We stayed at the aloft due to the closeness to our daughter's apartment. There is not much around the hotel but it is NYC and you can take a subway to eat and sightsee. The hotel suited our purpose.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great location, service but property needs work"
I love the location of this Aloft. It is accessible to the A train, the retail strip and Harlem's better restaurants and the Studio Museum are walking distance. The staff are great and the service is spot on. And there is a chic-ish, thoughtfully appointed lobby that doubles as a hip bar lounge that attracts a beautiful 30 something crowd. My only challenge […] with this property is that, due to the apparently cheap materials used in its remodel, it is already a bit shabby. Peeling veneer in the rooms and scratched built ins take away from what is essentially lovely, convenient design. The halls have a faint odor that smells a bit like mildew. It's mild but still somewhat off putting. Hopefully, it is just a ventilation issue. Overall, I would recommend it - especially when it is on sale. It is not by any stretch of the imagination, a premium hotel but it has most of the makings of a lovely, fun place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My daughter and I stayed in the hotel while we toured local universities. This hotel was perfect for us. Affordably priced with all of the amenities and a great style.. The staff was exceptional from beginning to end. I would definitely recommend The Aloft.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Seriously bad part of town"
So I thought that the high rating of this hotel by other guests meant that this was a fairly nice and safe place to stay (even though I knew it was in Harlem). The price was ok, but seriously, even the cab drivers told me not to go outside after dark. Definitely not a great place to stay if travelling with kids.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great place to stay for visiting NYC"
Aloft Harlem was a surprise for us to find, and a marvelous place to stay for my wife and I during a recent short trip to New York City. It is very convenient to transit, including the western subway lines and the M60 bus to and from LaGuardia. The hotel staff were very helpful and courteous. The room is similar in size to European hotel rooms, so a […] bit small compared to the routine American-style hotel rooms, but space is managed very well, so for a couple it was more than spacious enough. Our room was on the 2nd level facing the main street, which resulted in there being some street noise and light, which was the only drawback. All other factors considered, we will definitely return to stay at Aloft Harlem Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was looking for a clean, safe place to stay one night in Harlem that wasn't over-priced. Aloft was very conveniently located and they offered valet parking, which was very useful since I didn't know the area.The room was exceptionally clean (there was a musty smell in the hallway when I got off the elevator, so I was nervous about that. But the room […] smelled lovely and fresh! :)). The bed was really comfortable, too. Having read previous reviews, I knew the club/bar downstairs could get intrusively loud. Fortunately for me - since my 2nd floor room overlooked the club's outdoor lounge - it was pouring down rain all night, so other than some random guests leaving, it was not too bad. Had it been beautiful weather, I probably would have kept the (huge/HD) TV on to drown it out. The hotel staff were welcoming, not overly solicitous, but it's NYC after all. Overall, I would recommend Aloft and would probably stay there again -- just make sure it's a higher floor or on the side opposite the club. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Uptown Hotel"
It is very difficult to find a hotel in the upper west side of NYC that is reasonably priced for NYC. The hotel is convenient to Columbia University area which is where my daughter was moving back to after 2 years. The only problem was that the elevator from the street level to the lobby (a level down) was not working for 2 days but the staff offered […] support carrying my luggage. Upon arriving arriving at the hotel on Friday early evening, the music was blasting and tons of young people were parting and having a great a time.It was slightly difficult to hear the staff during the check in, there was no problem. I would stay there again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"pet friendly and very close to yankee stadium"
Second time staying at Aloft and really enjoyed the stay again, Id give it higher reviews if it wasnt so pricey this time but NO PET FEE which i love! 12 blocks from north end of Central ParkGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I only stayed in the hotel one night, but I felt that the staff was great! They were so helpful and nice. The room was great! Clean room, modern fixtures. I will definitely come back!Genuine Expedia guest review
overall it was good - the staff could have provided umbrellas free of charge instead of charging us $20.00 due to the rain & the airlines not allowing umbrellas on board. we had no choice but to purchase 1.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Enthusiastic staff, super helpful, friendly vibes"
I'm reluctant to write this review, as I don't want the masses to find out about the genius of Aloft Harlem. Without saying too much, it boils down to spacious rooms, close to a quick connect subway stop, a fun neighborhood, and really amazing friendly staff who go out of their way to help you do your thing. It's hip, and the bar downstairs can be a […] great way to meet people, and there are many local joints that are off of the touristy beaten path. I've stayed there 3 times now, and it's my go to in New York. But don't tell too many...... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel is deteriorating day by day"
We have been staying at this hotel over the past two years or so....at first it was a pleasure to find such a place in Harlem....now it's up keep is not up to the mark...the cushions/sofas In th lobby are worn and not clean....nor are the hotel corridors.....our room was facing a noisey street.....no fault of the hotel but they could have assigned a […] room on a higher floor or in the back....unlikely we will go back Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice Stay in a Bad Place"

"Trendy Perfect for short stays"
Overall the A-Loft was excellent. The rooms were clean and the service was great. The lounge and bar area transforms into a community night club over the weekends; which was not a fit for me however, you could not hear the music once in your room.Getting a YELLOW taxi was a MAJOR challenge in Harlem.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"worth the money"
The room was small as to be expected but the bed was super comfortable. The bathroom was nice and modern and the shower was awesome. Close to subway and only 15 minutes to downtown manhattan.

Best hotel I have stayed at. The staff were great and very attentive. I would recommend to anyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
was extremely disappointed by the level of the noise in the lobby which lasted until 2 am. it is a club scene in the lobby every friday and saturday night and although i was on the 6th floor, the noise was intolerable. i called to the lobby but no one picked up. I put on my clothes and went down to the lobby at 1 :45 and asked for the manager. the security […] guard said that even he would stay there on weekends. the manager wanted to know why i did not say anything earlier. I explained to her that i had called down to the lobby and no one picked up and i understand why, for the phone ring could not be heard given then chaos of the music. i can not in anyway recommend to my friends that they stay there on friday or saturday nights.

"Value for money and design"
Not a bad rate, but also not in downtown or midtown. Located in Upper West Side (Harlem) and therefore value for money. About 700 feet from subway station (125th street blue line) going downtown and to JFK. Design hotel with nice features. Free complementary coffee and tea, snacks available upon request. I would have like to be able to buy breakfast […] (fresh rolls, jelly, croissants, danish) here since there is no restaurant nearby so we ended up going to midtown/downtown and eat our breakfast there, but that is a 30 minute trip walking+subway. All in all a nice hotel. Rooms and beds were fine. Would stay here again if I needed value for money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
