Casablanca Hotel by Library Hotel Collection
Ranked #4 of 468 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2014

I cannot say enough nice things about this hotel!! This was our first family trip to NY (2 adults and 2 kids 9 and 11) and we were not sure what to expect. I selected this hotel based on other internet reviews, and I am SO glad that I did!! The staff at Casablanca are extremely friendly, helpful and eager to make sure that our stay was a wonderful experience-which it was. The hotel is located just off of Times Square and within walking distance to all the major tourist attractions and a subway station. The hotel was clean, and the suite room we stayed in was plenty big for the 4 of us-our view was unfortunately of the top of another building, but since we were barely in the room it was no problem for us and I think we probably slept better without the street noise. One other thing I would note is that some of the carpet and upholstery may be getting a little "tired"- but just barely enough to even mention. In my opinion, the Lounge area is a big part of what makes this hotel great. The breakfast selection was plentiful, the 24/7 availability of cappuccino and cookies was so much fun for our kids, and the wine and cheese reception each night was delicious. I especially loved the Prosecco (wish I would have written down the name of it!). The week we stayed the other guests we met were lovely and internationally diverse, we seemed to be the only guests with children. I would highly recommend Casablanca!!!

From start to finish our stay at the Casablanca was first class.

A perfect place to stay to experience New York in all it's glory.

The staff, the facilities, the rooms, the peace and quiet what more can I say.

100% recommended!

The hotel is right off of Times Square so great location for sightseeing. And it's surprisingly quiet for being in such a central location. All the staff I interacted with were super friendly and helpful. The hotel has a lounge on the 2nd floor where there is always fruit and water and cookies -- great place to chill out when your feet are tired from walking around. They serve a light breakfast there in the morning and wine before the dinner hour.

The only down side is that you have no control over the climate in your room. The entire building is heated with a single boiler. Our first night there we got a poor night's sleep because our room was stifling hot. Their engineer had to come turn off our radiator the next day. There is also no fan in the bathroom so everything gets steamed up after you shower.

I LOVED this hotel. My expectations were low as the price seemed low for the location but we were amazed. Lovely clean and smart hotel with exceptionally friendly staff. Would stay here again.... Really good!

My husband and I loved our 2 nights stay at the Casablanca. Upon arrival, staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Our every need was either anticipated by the staff or met once we asked. Staff were very supportive. The room was lovely with a very comfortable bed and the beautiful decor was cosy and relaxing after a busy time out on the streets. We greatly enjoyed the delicious continental breakfast and the always available goodies and refreshments.Times Square was immediately available and the location was perfect for getting around Manhatten. We really loved the Italian restruant nest door and again so convienent. We would definately stay here again when coming back to New York. Thanks Casablanca for helping to make our East Coast holiday so wonderful. Cheryl and Cheryl G

I will never stay anywhere else in NY. The hotel is very conveniently located smack dab in the middle of mid-town. Comfortable rooms with all of the amenities. But by far the best amenity is the staff. Service is top notch--staff goes out of its way to offer advice and provide solutions to any problems you encounter. You get a person welcome every time you return to the hotel. And the wine and cheese happy hour is just the thing after a long day of sight-seeing!
