- You can come by car and park your car on the street. This will save you a lot of money. Usually, hotels charge 45-50$ per day without in and out privilege. - AC is noisy. So we left it on during the day when we went out and turned it off during our sleep. - Fridge = bring food...

Stayed here while attending workshop at Columbia U., a 15 minute walk away. Hotel is close to 125th St. subway station, where it's an easy hop on the D line to most anywhere Uptown. My colleagues and I never felt unsafe. Some excellent food in the area! Hotel is 6 floors tall, with rooms starting on 2nd floor. Small bar...

My extended family and I stayed at this hotel to attend a wedding in Harlem. The rooms were very nice, clean and the staff was very friendly. It is a loft style hotel, so it minimizes space, while still providing a comfortable stay. There is no bathtub, only a shower, but it was very spacious. The mini fridge, free water...

This location was perfect! We are really impressed with the Aloft Harlem Hotel and their sister Hotel in Downtown Asheville, NC. Great rooms, great service, and great brand. Bring your own technology because the two iMac's in the lobby were vitrually useless. Very unusual. Ask for an air mattress, if you have children and still want a king size bed....

All the staff at this hotel were wonderful from the second we walked in. The person at the front desk (Lyndon, I think?) was very friendly and helpful, as were the security guards who gave us directions to nearby restaurants. The staff at the bar were equally wonderful and kept me entertained while my husband had to work. The rooms...
