We stayed here 3 nights in August to visit family. The hotel staff are excellent, attentive welcoming, and willing to help. The doorman provides a sense of security and has a good sense of humor.

We stayed here 3 nights in August to visit family. The hotel staff are excellent, attentive welcoming, and willing to help. The doorman provides a sense of security and has a good sense of humor. The furnishings and carpet are well worn but housekeeping does a good job. Our bathroom was clean upon arrival both stays. Older and darker colors don’t inspire confidence though. Housekeepers will provide extra towels coffee if we asked. They have coffee and minimal food selections plus a bar with food. Expect high prices this NYC. We stay here for the convenient location only. The street in front always has trash along the sidewalk. This is common in much of Harlem. Not a criticism just a fact. We used to feel safe walking most neighborhoods but no longer. Too many groups of young men standing around at all hours smoking pot openly since it has been legalized in NY and NJ. Plus we have been jeered at more than a few times. So we take a Lyft/Uber everywhere. Street noise is all hours so run the AC in your room. An alternative would be a good Airbnb in a safe neighborhood. We Read less

It was a nice stay for a girl's getaway at the Aloft. We were able to check in hours earlier due to arriving earlier, which was appreciated thanks to the nice gentleman and young lady (Samantha) at the front desk. While waiting for our room, I was disappointed there weren't any pool sticks to play billiards on the table that I was excited to use. I have stayed at the Aloft Hanover prior to my visit to Aloft Harlem, therefore I was familiar with the amenities. The one change needed for this property is the luggage carts. They are horrible! One wheel on the front of the cart that gets stuck and has to be manually turned is unacceptable. Please invest in a different style of luggage carts. Please and thank you. Read less

I really fault the management and Marriott for not taking care of this property. Stained furniture, dirty carpet, just to name a couple of issues. I don’t think Marriott would allow a property in midtown to look like this. Simply awful

1) The staff here is excellent! They are extremely nice, thoughtful, helpful and fun to engage in conversation. Specifically want to acknowledge Ideley, Nasha, Samantha and Annettee! 2) My first room was questionable. Warped shower stall floor tiles, room looked very old and rough around the edges. Carpet appeared dirty and I was afraid to let any… Read more
1) The staff here is excellent! They are extremely nice, thoughtful, helpful and fun to engage in conversation. Specifically want to acknowledge Ideley, Nasha, Samantha and Annettee! 2) My first room was questionable. Warped shower stall floor tiles, room looked very old and rough around the edges. Carpet appeared dirty and I was afraid to let any of my clothes touch the floor (like when you're taking off pants, etc.). I showed the front desk staff photos of the questionable things in my room and they promptly moved me to a better room on the same floor. Photos are of the first room. Second one was better but I didn't take photos :-( Given that this is part of the Marriott/W chain, I was surprised at the accommodations, even if they are in their budget line. Again, the second room was defintiely closer to what I expected. Read less
