Friendly hotel in Harlem
Reviewed 15 hours ago

My mom and I really enjoyed our stay at the Aloft Harlem. It is a quiet-ish area of NYC, and the hotel is cute and well-decorated. Some parts of the property and rooms are old, but it does not look bad. The hotel was busy upon check-in, and the lobby is a little small, but the staff is very friendly. The bar is also fun, albeit quite small, and I guess they do dances on Friday nights - that was really unexpected when we walked back in around 11PM! There is plenty of food and shopping within walking distance, and a subway station very closeby. The M60 bus to LaGuardia airport is also very close to this property, but we found it was much faster to take a taxi/rideshare. Hotel rooms are equipped with TV, microwave, fridge, and safe. Amenities like shampoo and soap are provided. Overall, decent hotel in the Harlem neighborhood!

I went on this trip for training, but loved the location. It was in close proximity of food, shopping, the subway and easy for Lyft to find as well. The staff were all pleasant, and could give food suggestions.

We stayed at the ALoft Harlem due to its close proximity to the Manhattan School of Music and because the school recommended it!

Great hotel, awesome front desk staff, four minute walk to Starbucks and the AMC theater was right across the street.

My only complaint would be the hotel could use a bit of spring cleaning soon.

Good Location but Needs Better Service

The hotel is pretty clean and comfortable. Several things, however, ruined the stay. First off, the hotel booking was made with breakfast included for an extra $10. Save your money as that entitles you to 1 juice, 1 croissant or 2 danish and a coffee. Coffee in the room is free, anyway, plus the elevator advertises some sort of cooked breakfast bowl (but I never found out where I could get one and I would have paid the up-charge) which might have mollified me. The second thing was the room which was always cold as I could not change the thermostat. I was between 2 brutal storms so it wasn't so bad but I would have balked had the temperatures outside been any lower. Third - and they probably knocked but I'm deaf so it didn't help - 2 people just barged into my room one night checking WiFi signal! When I asked them for ID, one of them pointed to his Aloft team-shirt but had nothing else. Not cool, people, not cool at all. That cost them a point as I might have given them 3 stars.
