I've visited NYC several times and this is one of the best hotels that I've stayed in. The room was surprisingly spacious (Manhattan rooms that are affordable are notoriously small), with hip decor and extremely clean. We opted to skip new towels on a couple of days and received a $5/day credit to be used at the bar or snack...

We recently stayed here for 1 night. I used to work in the city but never been up in this neighborhood. So I wanted to try it. A pleasant surprise! It's not the Ritz but I love the modern vibe at this property. Staff were polite and courteous. In the lobby and your room there's free coffee tea n hot...

we stayed at the Aloft to visit Columbia, it was about a 10 minute walk, very convenient. Also convenient to subway to get to times square, etc. Room was chic, service was over the top great (Martha in particular was so helpful), very warm, friendly. Wouldn't walk in area at night but had no problem during day

Rooms are just fine, AC is very noisy though, it's amazing. Wifi initially did not work, Reception could not answer phone as there was some function in the lobby on the first night. Too noisy, my business partners and me could not even sit down anywhere in this hotel for a quiet chat. Second night, same thing. Another, loud event...

Jay D , General Manager · 04/22/17 Dear Traveler, Thank you for your comments on our rooms, they've just been renovated. The hotel supports local Harlem artist's by displaying their work in our lobby for guests to see.

Stayed on night last week. Arrived late, tough to find a spot on the street to unload your bags and get them down the flight of stairs to reception - you're on your own. $50 for valet overnight parking (ouch) but once inside nice clean rooms, swanky, with nice amenities. Movie theater across the street, good cafes and bodegas around...

I stayed Aloft Harlem to visit Columbia University. The room I stayed was not too large but good for price and clean. Free coffee at lobby and free wifi (book through via SPG.com) are nice as well. Front desk tried to find a room for early check in. Staff members are nice. The only problem is very noisy air conditioning...

This was my first trip to NYC and my sister was in a conference at Columbia, which is why I stayed here. The location was good - within walking distance to the 125th St subway entrance and the university. It was easy to jump on the subway and go anywhere we wanted to. Also a great little deli a few...

First stay at an Aloft Hotel. Clean, comfortable, large rooms. Healthy food in lobby. Short walk to subway. Great for musicians. Manager said there is a practice room or you can practice in the lobby bar area.

I stayed here for a couple of nights on a business trip, and it was perfectly fine. Small, but that's expected in NY. What weirded me out was the paw prints everywhere--on the front entrance and a sign on the front desk that asks pets to check in without any mention of humans. Anyway, that was weird, and I genuinely...

Despite the selection trip advisor made me select, I did not visit in 2016. I visited the property in March 2011, when it was only open for a couple of months. The hallways still smelled new. My room was great so was the lil view I had. Staff was attentive. The bar was one of the highlights, nice atmosphere, great...
