So technically this is a 3.5 star hotel. It’s not a Four Seasons or a Waldorf hotel. But I’m giving this place five stars. First of all, the staff is fun, kind, and accommodating. I’ve stayed here three times now, and checking in today, they knew my name as soon as I walked in the door. I work nights when I’m in NYC, and they’ve always… Read more
So technically this is a 3.5 star hotel. It’s not a Four Seasons or a Waldorf hotel. But I’m giving this place five stars. First of all, the staff is fun, kind, and accommodating. I’ve stayed here three times now, and checking in today, they knew my name as soon as I walked in the door. I work nights when I’m in NYC, and they’ve always accommodated me with a quiet room off the main hall. This time they gave me a corner room with huge windows and tons of light (note that courtyard rooms are quieter). The rooms aren’t fancy, but they are clean and have good heating and air, and the beds are pretty comfy. There aren’t any drawers for clothing, but the modern closet space is plenty for me. Housekeeping is always nice and thorough. They have a neat lobby with artwork from local artists and modern music playing. There is normally a bar and breakfast served, but not right now during COVID 19. It’s also in the vibrant Harlem neighborhood and is about half a mile from a subway train that can get you anywhere. This was booked for business, but I would stay here on personal stays too. Again, kudos to the staff—so warm and welcoming, better than so many luxury hotels in which I’ve stayed! Read less

The Aloft Harlem is a great trendy boutique hotel. The staff was awesome- extremely helpful, professional, and personable. The front desk staff offered great suggestions for dining, entertainment, and even tips on how to navigate the city. My daughter will be attending Columbia University Teachers College in the fall, so we wanted a location within walking distance to the university. The walk to campus is about 12 minutes. The hotel is very clean and we would not hesitate to stay again! Read less

We had the opportunity to stay at the Aloft! Naja at the front desk was so helpful and attentive! Please give her our thanks! It was our first time at this hotel but will not be our last. Naja made us feel very welcomed.

Reserved 2 Queen room, only to find out upon arrival that my room flooded and they were giving me two separate rooms you make up for this. I only wish they were adjoining took, but none were available at the time. Management was very apologetic and gave us vouchers for breakfast. The rooms were nice and spacious. The bed was comfy and the temperature just right for a balmy NY night. The only downside is the bar was closed for the night, as no bar staff was available and no microwave in the rooms. I would definitely stay again. Read less

The staff is super friendly. The hotel is dated with some modern aspects. The heating is noisy and really did not maintain the temperature in the room. The bathrooms need a lot of work as do the bedding. I truly say I had a “lumpy “ mattress. I never knew what this meant until staying at the Aloft. I thought because it was part of the… Read more
The staff is super friendly. The hotel is dated with some modern aspects. The heating is noisy and really did not maintain the temperature in the room. The bathrooms need a lot of work as do the bedding. I truly say I had a “lumpy “ mattress. I never knew what this meant until staying at the Aloft. I thought because it was part of the Marriott chain, some of the amenities would be better. Even for New York, the rooms are small. I think they are undergoing renovations but I’m not sure as I’ve stay three times during the past three weeks and seen no changes in the decor. Read less
