I would sum up my stay here as...A pleasant surprise!!! First, you are greeted by a staff that really seems to be glad to have you. (Aloft, don't ever change that!) The staff was also helpful throughout our stay (Friday 12/20 to Monday 12/23) Second, the lobby has a hip feel to it but not too over the top. P.S.-...

Stayed at the Aloft Harlem for two nights and while I was concerned after reading some of the comments, I was pleasantly surprised except for some couple items.

The room was really nice. The staff was friendly. The safe in my room was busted when I got there but they sent someone to fix it pretty quickly. It is a little far from midtown if that is your main focus but it is a very reasonably priced room, especially considering it is the city.

I stayed here while visiting my son at Union Theological Seminary, which is around the corner. The hotel is nice and clean, has all the amenities but nothing over the top. The thing that sticks out to me about my stay is the horrible attitudes of the staff, who act as if they are going out of their way at...

I traveled to Harlem for a business meeting and was looking for a good hotel at a reasonable rate. The Aloft provided both. The hotel was clean and the staff very friendly. It was also modern and compact. Unlike other hotels that are similar, this one served the needs of a wide variety of guests from young to older and...

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.
