Casablanca Hotel by Library Hotel Collection
Ranked #2 of 471 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Everyone loves the Casablanca-- here's why:

Location: 30 seconds walk to Times Square.
Staff: super friendly.
Quality: everything is well done.
Value: considering its location, it's a good deal.

For just about $300 (pre-paid rate) you get a small but nicely appointed room with a queen size bed and a new bath with good quality fixtures.

The hotel offers a complimentary Continental breakfast in the morning and complimentary wine and nibbles in the evening. Nice.

Not sure i should be sharing this, the more people know about this "gem of a hotel" the harder it might get to stay there. This place is simply stunning. Don't be put off by its proximity to Time Square, you wouldnt know as it is so peaceful. Once inside you could be in the middle of the country such are the quiet and peaceful surroundings.
But its location is spot on for sightseeing. Being right in the middle of midtown you couldnt be better placed for exploring both the north and south of Manhattan, it is ideal if your chosen method of transport is your feet.
Buts its not just its location that make this place. The staff are simply amazing from a seamless and welcoming check in to ensuring every need is catered for during your stay.
We booked a premium king room that was perfect for our stay in the city which essentially was a whirlwind of shopping and sightseeing which made the all day complimentary coffee and pastries ideal. The hotel also offers free wine and cheese between 5-8pm daily which was a lovely touch, and free wifi to help you catch up your daily dose of the internet.
Our next visit to NYC will definitely see us basing ourselves back at the Casablanca, it really did ensure our trip was absolutely perfect

This is the first time at a luxury 5 star hotel and being my first I had to get it right and I can safely say I have done that after detailed research. The Casablanca is a fantastic hotel to stay at, I guess what set's this hotel apart from others is it's multiple teamed colourful rooms with adds true character (pictures on websites don't do any justice). The staff are very friendly and will cater to your every needs. Overall I will be back to The Casablanca again

We loved the hotel and its staff.
I will quote another "So, a clever response was given by Casablanca owners: service that makes you use the hotel as a Head Quarter to do whatever you may need in Manhattan. Forget about the luxury lobby, spa or gym. You will get service. Smiles, good food, good wine on a fine budget, in a good location."
Our room 601 was perfect. We did not hear any outside noise and there were blackout curtains to keep the light out and allow for sound sleep.
We can recommend with confidence.

This is a gem of a hotel, small compared to other New York Hotels, but service was beyond expectation. Very welcoming, and beautiful clean bedrooms. We arrived from a cruise ship at 9.30 in the morning, but our room was ready. Our room was facing Times Square, but we did not experience any abnormal noise at night. The buffet breakfast was sufficient, our only comment would be everybody seemed to be there at the same time, and seating at tables was limited. The wine and cheese early evening was very welcome after a day sightseeing to be able to sit in comfort and relax. The location was central to most of the sightseeing venues.
All in all a very pleasant stay and highly recommended.

Perfect Location. Breakfast and wine&cheese meals included plus 24h complimentary breads and coffee make this hotel a perfect stay on such a busy town. Few people go to NYC expecting to expend their time on a swimming pool. So, a clever response was given by Casablanca owners: service that makes you use the hotel as a Head Quarter to do whatever you may need in Manhattan. Forget about the luxury lobby, spa or gym. You will get service. Smiles, good food, good wine on a fine budget, in a good location.

Room Tip: Rooms are not that spacious, so choose wisely depending on how long you will stay. Don't be gree...

Very comfortable and extraordinarily friendly and welcoming small hotel conveniently located within 1/2 block of Times Square. No outside "city" noise at night. Delightful staff. Very nice continental breakfast included. Room small but very comfortable with nice amenities. It was a terrific spot for us. Only down side - our room window opened on to a small patio, so we couldn't really use it much...not much of a downside in NYC in the winter, though!
