“Excellent Location and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

The Casablanca Hotel is in an excellent location. It is steps from Times Square, but not noisy. Rooms are immaculate. The service is very personal, and the staff is friendly. The complementary breakfast is a plus, and I look forward to the wine and cheese in the afternoons . I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting New York.

This is the first time we have visited New York City and chose the Casablanca Hotel in Times Square to help us ring in the new year! Upon arrival and after stepping through the front doors, the staff immediately made us feel like we were at "home!" They promptly checked us in, took us to our room and recommended a wonderful French restaurant for dinner. Noteworthy is that the staff always greeted us by our first names. Bravo!!! Prior to dinner we relaxed in Ricks Café on the 2nd floor of the hotel and enjoyed wonderful wine and cheeses as well as the talents of a fantastic piano player. Ricks Café became a routine part of our stay for the next five days. Each morning we would start with coffee and pastries, meet with wonderful new friends and plan the days events. Each evening we would relax with a glass of wine before venturing out to enjoy nighttime activities. The hotel staff assisted us with purchasing tickets for an off Broadway show, acquired wine for us to take to a friends house for dinner as well as constantly guiding us with detailed maps and directions to many major NYC attractions, including how to navigate the subway system. The highlight of our stay at the Casablanca was a fantastic New Years Eve celebration in the hotel complete with champagne and handmade chocolates delivered to our room new years eve afternoon. A wonderful meet and greet mingling session in Ricks Café began the festivities prior to dinner next door at the fantastic Tony's restaurant. After dinner the entire hotel staff was on hand to help the hotel guests celebrate. They passed out party favors, champagne and hand-warmers and escorted us up to their 7th floor roof top deck in order that we and all other hotel guests had an unobstructed view of the beautiful Times Square crystal ball dropping at midnight and ringing in 2014! After the ball dropped, more mingling in Ricks café. A truly memorable evening. Sadly, our 5 days in NYC ended all too quickly. On January 2nd we said our goodbyes to the staff (our new NYC family) and departed for the airport. We plan to return to the Casablanca this year and enjoy more of the beautiful sights in NYC. Thank you, thank you Casablanca staff. We appreciate all of you and best wishes in 2014!!

Room Tip: I believe any room would be equally appealing.

The Casablanca is one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in anywhere. The staff is friendly and was committed to making our stay perfect. The hotel itself is charming without being pretentious. Coffee, tea and snacks are available 24 hours in the beautifully decorated Rick's Cafe, where complimentary breakfast is also served, as well as wine and cheese in the evening (with a pianist some evenings who played "As Time Goes By" for us. Don't know whether his name was Sam though ;) .). And our room was spotless. You can't beat the location - right around the corner from Times Square - for theater going. If you are looking for the glitz and sterility of a big chain with a built-in gym, don't stay here. But if you are looking for a small hotel with lots of character and the finest staff in the hospitality industry, the Casablanca is ideal. It's converted us from day trips to the city to multi day visits.

We stayed here as a couple for 4 nights in June 2013. The hotel is small with the perfect location, close to Times Square and walking distance from some of the main sights in New York City as well as the subway station. The rooms, although small being in NYC, were comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were lovely with fresh bagels every morning and fruit. And the loveliest touch was the complimentary cheese and wine provided each evening, which was the perfect thing to do to meet other guests and before heading out on your evening explorations. Would not hesitate to return.

I absolutely loved this hotel and am so glad I found it. I worried that it might be noisy, being so close to Times Square, but the opposite was true. It's like a little oasis of calm in the city. The staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough to help. Rick's Cafe, offering all day tea/coffee/snacks and evening wine and cheese receptions is a lovely, welcome touch. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough!
