A minimalist lobby. Upon check-in, we were handed a card to operate the elevator and to get into our room. Although breakfast food can be purchased, there's no restaurant or bellmen. The hotel is a short walk from the main streets of Harlem. The staff...More
I recently stayed at the hotel for a conference at Columbia University Medical Center. I would not recommend it for business purposes. There is no restaurant within the hotel. The lobby is not inviting to travelers who are there for work.
I think if I...More

Dear Columbia University Traveler,
Thank you for staying with us at the Aloft Harlem. There are several fabulous restaurants within a short walk from the hotel. Most of which offer a 10 - 15 % discount to our guests. The hotel lobby offers complimentary wi-fi...More
I live in Queens and decided to stay in Manhattan where I work due to a snow storm. The Aloft Harlem had a decent rate and being an SPG member I booked. The snow was not as bad as expected but since I would lose...More

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and being a SPG member. During winter storms the manager on duty will make exceptions based on the circumstances. Additional sugar and cream is available 24 hours in the lobby area. Although we don't place...More
We wanted to stay in Harlem on a recent visit to see if we wanted to live in Harlem or elsewhere when we relocate to New York. This hotel had a nice room (not large but not small for New York standards). The staff was...More
The room is a cool , upgraded, compact layout. It's good for 1 night, but you hear all the traffic from the street. Bed reminds me of a futon. Parking is around the corner in a secure garage and you have the option for them...More
As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has played a vital role in the history of New York City. Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new businesses and developments go up next to local institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
you’ll discover some of the most beautiful blocks in the city, filled with handsome brownstones, soul food restaurants, corner shops, and scenic parks. For a taste of a real New York neighbourhood, it’s hard to top a visit to Harlem.

Best way is M60 bus - buy fare at kiosk inside airport (around $3.00 per ride). Bus takes you directly along 125th, get off a Frederick Douglass Blvd and walk south one block to hotel. Subway (express A or D) is also a block from the hotel, same price and takes you right to Times Square in 20 minutes. Taxi/Uber are way more expensive and you risk getting stuck in traffic.
