Last minute pick

This is a very nice trendy hotel close to Columbia University. It was the main reason for booking so we could walk there. Everything was excellent except for the complimentary coffee in the lobby. If it wasn't cold it was old.

Very Nice hotel located in Harlem.

Nice place to visit after work for drinks at the bar. The accommodations I must say I was suprised and pleased. I'm willing to revisit as I have my apartment repaired and decorated.

Best in the area

Posted May 25, 2014
This hotel meets the usual Doubletree standard with high quality for a good price. I arrived very late at night and received a cheery welcome from the front desk. This is probably one of the few places in the area with a hotel bar and the bartender is fantastic. She gracefully handled a large overly rowdy crowd, closed down the bar without incident, and let me get in a late drink order as I just arrived.

Great urban vibe

Posted May 16, 2014
Pros: Easy access. Great decor. Loved the music piped throughout. Young attractive people at the desk.
Cons: Get a new coffee machine in the room.
Location: Go access to everything I needed.
I loved the music and decor of the lobby. It all had a great urban vibe that was so Harlem. The only problem I had was making tea in my room. The machine had directions that I could not understand, so I went for tea in the lobby. That was so much easier. The person at the desk did offer help to me up in my room, but I just did not choose that option. All in all, a great stay. Nice bed!!!

Hidden Jewel

This boutique hotel nestled in the heart of Harlem afforded me a very good hotel experience at a reasonable rate. Majority of the staff was friendly and accommodating. Room was chic, clean and comfy. I'll be back!

Lovely hotel in a convenient place.

Posted May 5, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff, clean, bright rooms, accessible breakfast, close to shopping, close to Columbia University. Closs to subway. Jazz club Minton's close.
Location: See location information about.
The Aloft Harlem seems to pop up out of nowhere. At first it looks to be unaccessible, but there is a lift from the street level to the lower, reception floor. There are also open stairs and a patio on the way down. The staff greet visitors with friendliness and are knowledgeable about the city, including good food and a wonderful local jazz club - if one asks. Rooms are euro-looking, clean and bright. Hot breakfast and ready-to -go lunches are available for a reasonable price and made to order. Columbia university is just a ten minute walk away and there is great shopping just around the corner (which we did not discover until our way to the airport). The subway is a five minute walk away. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who likes friendly service, prompt attention and a homey atmosphere. There is also a small business centre where one can print out work. (I left something at home and was able to work here.) We really hope to return to this lovely place next year.

This hotel worked well for us. We were attending a play at Columbia University, a short walk away.
