Perfect for a short stay

Review of Aloft Harlem
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 19 Sept 2023
The Aloft is a perfect hotel for a short visit to NYC. The rooms are quite large by New York standards, with surprising amounts of natural light. The bar/lobby/market area has a clean, modern feel and the staff at the reception are attentive and excellent. It's right by great bars and restaurants, try Sugar Monk next door for amazing cocktails.

Reviewed 8 September 2023 via mobile

I stayed here last year in April with my niece for the first time. I had to return in July of this year with hubby for his first New York visit. This location is ideal to walk everywhere local or catch Uber or subway. Perfect for us as my mom lives in Harlem only a 15 minute walk or $8 Uber.

Lots of restaurants and stores up and down 125th right up the street. Old navy H&M CVS Burlington to name a few.

We enjoyed the quiet location and all the staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a bar on site and they offer bar food wings and such.
They also have light hot breakfast available for purchase as well as a few items they stock for snacking. There is a refrigerator in the room but no microwave. We used the one in the lobby for popcorn and leftovers.

The rooms are large with a king bed TV a desk and chair and adequate closet space. A large walk in shower with plush towels.

If business or pleasure brings you to Harlem this is where you should book.

Really comfortable hotel. The room is big, decor is quit updated, the bed is really comfortable. The little vending space ate the lobby is very convenient. The gym is ok, nice equipments. I was there to attend a course at Columbia Business School, and the location was perfect, walking distance (about 15 min walk). Many options of public transport nearby (Subway A and C 1 block away, Subways 2 and 3 2 blocks away). Staff was really friendly and helpful. The only thing is that the shower pressure could be better, but that is just a detail.

My child and I stayed here while visiting Columbia for a college tour. The room was relatively small, as expected for NYC, but clean and fine. It was a little more of a walk than we wanted every day, but walkable. Sometimes we took a Lyft. We didn’t try any of the food options at the hotel. It was a fine stay. No complaints about the hotel. (We didn’t have a car with us so I can’t speak to parking.)

We booked a 3 night stay in a king bed. Ambassador status recognition is typically minimal at this brand as there aren't any real upgrades, but you do receive a $10 breakfast voucher per person, per day. They also honored our preferences of being on a high floor and away from the elevators.

The front desk was very friendly and we found the service to be great throughout our stay. Also housekeeping came daily and did a good job.

None of the rooms have views, ours faced a brick wall. The room itself is in need of a refresh soon as it's started to feel worn out.

The biggest negative for us was the air-conditioner vents were positioned at the foot of the bed which meant that while we were sleeping they blew right on us all night. It was uncomfortable to have air blowing on us all night so we'd go out to dinner in the evening and turn down the air to cool the room off and sleep without the AC on. It seemed to work but wasn't ideal as NYC can be muggy in the summer. I couldn't imagine if it was winter and to have heat blowing on you all night.

The internet was fast and reliable. There was a long desk against the wall so we could both have a workspace with one person using a computer chair and for the second person using a stool that was in the room.

Room tip: Be alert when walking around the neighborhood, it can be a bit dodgy.

Stayed here without expecting much but to my surprise it was a very nice hotel,, helpful staffs right from checking-in up until when I left… Front desk is very help with directions on how to travel plus very friendly set of people… is a small place and a bit hidden but with kind people working there, very neat and modern room and also stylish… nothing to complain.❤️

Room tip: Use the subway to travel the station is just a few blocks away. Uber is expensive in New York.
