I traveled with my husband. Our first time staying in Harlem; we traveled to attend a wedding and we were very pleased with the hotel and with Harlem. Stayed in 2nd floor and we could hear people talking in the streets but not to an uncomfortable level; not a crowded street however. The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly...

I stayed for only 2 nights but had a great time. The room is hip and funky, love the walk in shower, and very tech friendly. Harlem by day is very cool to explore. Aloft is around the corner from the historic Apollo theatre! At night, it's a bit sketchy. But luckily, the XYZ lounge in the Aloft is the...

Really enjoyed this hotel. Well appointed room and free Wifi great feature. The staff were all excellent and while the hotel is a little out of the way for the uninitiated to NYC in Harlem it is still close to subway. I must be getting old though as I found the music a little on the loud side sat night......

Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Aloft Harlem. So often people hear 'Harlem' and they hesitate, but the area is bustling with restaurants and shops, and as you pointed out close to the subway which will have you downtown in no time. We appreciate the kind words about the staff.

It is a rather original concept for a loft/hotel that it is clearly targeted to young clients (18-28): loud music, young personel attending the front desk (full of energy but sort of "Mac Donalds style": may I have your order? and ....NEXT!), a large bar with karaoker nights, a kiosk. All these features are particularly interesting for a young population...

We appreciate your review. Aloft is definitely a lifestyle hotel and does cater to a tech savvy crowd, but definitely not just for a young crowd. Starwood has a number of great hotel in the city so we hope you choose one of our sister properties when next you are in NYC.

As with my first stay, the hotel is lovely. Room was clean, retro, great for the price. Front desk was very friendly. The only negative I have is the XYZ lounge. The bartender (on Monday night)was less than attentive and in fact was more interested in flirting with some guy at the bar while belting out tunes that were playing...

I'm a New Yorker who now lives in Cali. When I visit NYC and want to stay in the city, finding hotels that are less than $200.00 per night can be a chore.

Don't understand the good reviews. Hubby and friend say: Arrived at night. Neighborhood seemed very scary. Upon entering the hotel, were engulfed by a deafening and un-welcoming noise since the reception desk is sitting in a bar. Had trouble hearing the receptionist. Had a closet size room barely containing the bed. Had to squeeze into the room after opening the...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. The Aloft is a select service hotel so we do not offer a full breakfast. Our wonderful front desk staff will always provide great suggestions of where one can grab breakfast/lunch/dinner in the area. As the name suggests ' a loft' the design is not that of a typical hotel...
