Where to start when looking for somewhere to stay in New York....lots of choice and plenty big name hotels all offering the same plastic and impersonal service. A quick scan of google (hotels near Times Square) was the place to start and up popped this Hotel that stood out from the crowd. A themed hotel based on a classic film. This just had to be investigated, and what an inspiration it turned out to be. Online booking was made very easy, with lots of different options and packages available. The whole process was dealt with very speedily with confirmation via email in an instant. We needed a pick up from the airport, this was sorted in one phonecall and they even phoned a week before our arrival to check everything was ok for our trip.
So imagine the scene, arriving in New York, never been before, total culture shock (That would be Times Square) and we walk into a cool oasis of tranquillity to be greeted by very friendly and helpful reception staff who took the time to explain everything that the Hotel had to offer and also what to expect and ideas on places to go in New York.
The room was as expected and shown on the website, very clean and a good size with everything you could need for your stay.
The whole stay at the Casablanca was brilliant, the staff were friendly, unobtrusive but very helpful should you need something.
Would we stay there again, most definitely. Would we reccommend the Casablanca to anyone travelling to New York, without question.
A wonderful and calm place to stay in the madness that is New York.
Only one small suggestion, there is a need for some sort of cold drinks dispenser, vending machine as there was not a lot of choice in Rick's Cafe when returning hot and thirsty from a day on the town.
