The Casablanca totally deserves it's top TA rating! My 13 year old daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful visit here for her first trip to NYC and my first visit in 19 years. As other reviewers have noted, the service is top notch and location can't be beat, especially if you plan to see Broadway shows. It is an easy taxi or subway ride from Grand Central and Penn train stations and staff can arrange a town car to airports or hail a taxi for you. The Times square Metro terminal is a 1-2 minute walk from the hotel, and the concierge will give you a very helpful subway/Manhattan street map. We bought 7 day Metrocards and had an easy time navigating the subway, plus walking to many sites, including the Empire State building and Rockerfeller center. There is a shuttle connecting the Times Square and Grand Central metro stations, and I highly recommend the Grand Central food court for a tasty meal. We loved the complimentary continental breakfast, which featured tasty bagels and made to order oatmeal in addition to the usual spread, and spent one morning in the outer courtyard. The 24 hour tea, coffee and pastries were lovely as was the 5-8pm complimentary wine/snack service.
Check in was quick and easy, and we received an email several weeks prior to our arrival offering help with planning our trip. Our room was small but spacious, very quiet and comfortable, and we loved the Mediterranean décor. My daughter enjoyed the toiletries and complimentary chocolates at bedtime. We had an afternoon flight, so left our luggage with the bell-hop on our last morning. Every staff member, from housekeeping to the doormen was gracious and helpful. I will stay here again the next time I visit NYC.
