While The Aloft Hotel, located at 2296 Frederick Douglass Blvd., is receiving a ton of news coverage at the moment from the traditional media as the first hotel to open in Harlem since 1967 (darn that’s a long time ago), we want to share one detail we’ve heard about the hotel, which will open in Harlem October 21!
Apparently the Hotel will have some sort of cul-de-sac type gift shop where they plan to only sell Harlem-made or themed items. Harlem watercolorist Lynn Lieberman announced recently that her Harlem watercolor notecards will soon be available at The Aloft Hotel. Congrats to Lynn and we look forward to hearing who else strikes a product agreement with the Harlem hotel. And looking forward to checking out The Aloft!
