Our name says it all—Aloft Harlem—so our location’s kind of a no-brainer. Located on historic Frederick Douglass Boulevard and 124th St. in northern Manhattan, easily accessible by car; Hop on the highway, cross the JFK or George Washington Bridge and you'll be here in no time! Plus, wheels give you the flexibility to zip around to nearby businesses, area attractions, and the rest of NYC with ease. Flying in from afar? We recommend flying into LGA (6.9 miles), JFK (17.7 miles), or EWR (20.7 miles). Taxis are always available, or a take a private car service with prior reservations.

But for the non-drivers—or eco-conscious—among you, a car’s not necessary. We're most easily accessible by an excellent bus and subway system. Harlem is also great on foot, which is a great way to get the true feel of the neighborhood. We’re just steps from the Apollo Theater, Central Park and many other area attractions. When you get tired of hoofing it, there are plenty of cabs to zoom you around. Call the hotel or stop by the front desk and we’ll give you the full rundown.

If you are traveling by car, please see driving directions, from the airport or any other location.
