“Wonderful, wonderful hotel”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

The location is convenient to everything, the room (studio) was superb: large, quiet, great bathroom, fantastic beds. The second floor breakfast/drink/snack area is well-maintained and a welcome addition. Will return for business and relax/pleasure as well.

The best in every way. If there is a room available, book and enjoy! Highest quality service, snacks and drinks 24 hours, home from home in a city that can be overwhelming. Have been many times. Perfect for theater, the TKTS booth is steps away.

We had met friends here several years ago, seeing their lovely room and enjoying wine in Rick's Cafe. Very excited to splurge and stay here. Here's what I especially liked:
Serve yourself cappuccino machine; fruit, yogurt, pastries for breakfast; very nice happy hour with wine, cheese and breads; Moroccan decor with art and antiques; gracious hotel staff; spacious bath in the king room; window treatments that did their best to keep out the outside noise. So convenient to the theater--actually across the street !! Several European couples. One night was very noisy due to street repairs going on, but hey, it's Times Square.

Room Tip: The rooms aren't large but have interesting shapes and are quite charming. Our king room had a l...

All the hotel staff are friendly and welcoming and can't do enough. the breakfast and wine and cheese reception were perfect. rooms are homely and location couldn't be better. can't wait for next year to return!

We spent two nights at the Casablanca, we chose it based on the customer reviews and boy we were not disappointed. The hotel is in a great location close to Times Square. The rooms are a nice size, spotlessly clean, nice comfortable bed and a huge bathroom.
Ricks café is the focal point as it is where breakfast is served a traditional continental type breakfast fare. Its is open 24 hours offering complimentary coffee, cookies and cakes through the day and evening, also what sold it for me was the complimentary wine and cheese evenings circa 5:00 and 8:00 in the evening which is a great plus to come back to or start the evening with.
The staff are some of the best I have been privileged to meet, so polite and professional, an example was Robert who worked at reception not only did he go and stop a cab for me he sat in the cab until I got in. As I say the staff are great from Victor on the door to the ladies in Ricks Café who work so hard.
Thank you for making my New York visit such an enjoyable stay and a great end to our vacation.

This boutique hotel has great immenities and is unbelievably close to Times Square. (a quarter of a block maybe?) It reminded me of stays in Europe. Loved the experience!! Would do it again!! I would call it "quaint and homey".
