Rated 5 out of 5 by SusanandBob Another great stay at the Harlem Aloft!
This hotel is easy to get to by car, and we're always able to park on the street nearby. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

As a senior citizen traveling alone, I was intimated to stay in a hotel, but this place is awesome, safe, clean, the rooms are inviting and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is in walking distance to historic Harlem and plenty of reasonable restaurants. The staff knocks themselves out to accommodate you. The prices are reasonable. I would definitely stay here again while in NYC!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SusanandBob Great location!
A short walk to Morningside Park and Columbia University, coupled with easy access to downtown via the A or D trains make this hotel a great place to stay in northern Manhattan! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

Met up with a girlfriend from London to Celebrate my 50th and stayed here. Could not have picked a better place. Every staff member we met were so very helpful. Chonette at the front desk... very sweet.She gave me the feeling that she wanted us to have a wonderful experience. A great asset to the company. Ashton so very very helpful and just couldn't do enough sort of attitude made the stay wonderful. Jennifer, made everything seem so easy.
Each time we got ready to leave to go out for the evening I was reluctant to leave the hotel because the lounge was where I wanted to hang. We often went to the lounge to have a drink before we went out. Loved the club vibe on Saturday night, if we had not had plans I would have stayed.
If the DJ was a little more friendly and approachable, I would have certainly ditched my previous engagement and stayed in the lounge. It would be the place to be. Drink, enjoy the music, dance a little and go on up to bed. No need to get a ride back to the hotel.
Enjoyed shopping in Harlem, eating as well and what a beautiful neighbourhood. Did not feel threatened at any point. What I would do to be there walking around right now...
Loved Love Loved the experience. Thank you to the Crew at Aloft. I would recommend you to everyone.

The hotel staff allowed me to check-in a little early which I appreciated.Staff was personable and helpful; unlike New York. Hotel was clean. Housekeeping did great job, even folding my shirts (wow). Security was present and alert even when I returned one night 4:00am. Room service responded to every request expediently. I hope Aloft management appreciates the exceptional job their team in Harlem does. The hotel is in a great location. Mass transportation is just a block away. The neighboorhod has transformed into one of the most exciting in NYC. Frederick Douglas Blvd is lined with restaurants,outdoor cafes,shops and upscale lounges including Alofts own lounge which generates enough excitment of its own. Aloft Harlem. I will be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CRT2012 Down to earth and un-pretentious!
When the conference organizers said that the hotel would be Aloft Harlem, A Vision of the W Hotels, I thought I was going to throw up. A "vision" of the W Hotels?! Please. I thought I was going to walk into a faux-celebutante nightmare with pretentious staff that could barely care to lift their heads away from their iphones to check me in.
I was wrong. Completely and totally wrong. And I am not afraid to admit it.
The staff were so friendly, helpful, nice, genuine, and a bunch of other similar adjectives.
The hotel lobby is funky, yet comfy. Free printing on the lobby ipads or Macs. The bar is lively at night and cozy. The rooms are small, but clean and comfy.
The bathroom is really small and the sliding door doesn't completely shut. There is a shower stall with a door that can be difficult to maneuver because of the spacing between the door and the toilet, but they offer bliss products (shampoo/conditioner and body wash) in the shower.
If you choose to not get your room cleaned everyday, they will either add on points to your SPG account or give you a gift cert for a place nearby. If you do, no worries. You will also get free bottles of water each day. The rooms have small fridges underneath the sink too so you can save your leftovers from the wonderful restaurants in Harlem.
Overall, this is a great place. If I have the money and the time and the need to be back, I would be here again.
