“Would Stay There Again, Sam!!!”
Reviewed 2 May 2010

My husband and I stayed at the Casablanca Hotel for 3 nights in April. We were so glad we read the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to stay there. We loved the intimate feeling, as if we were coming home instead of to a hotel. We also loved the daily continental breakfast and evening wine and cheese reception. The breakfast was the perfect thing to get our day off to a good start. And it was nice to relax for a few minutes with a glass of wine before our shows in the evening. It was also enjoyable to meet some of the other guests in Rick's Cafe and compare NY stories. The staff at the Casablanca truly enhance your stay as they are so helpful and accommodating. As this was my first trip to NYC, the location of the Casablanca can't be beat as it is literally steps to Times Square. We would definitely stay at the Casablanca again as we managed to find the perfect hotel on our first trip.

I stay at the Casablanca every time I go to New York. The location is excellent and the hotel itself is clean, quiet, and luxurious. You wouldn't expect a hotel that is this close to Times Square to be so quiet and restful, but it is! It is steps away from the shuttle, and so you can easily get to Grand Central and to any point in the city from there.

The theater district is close by, as well! It's a great place to base out of for business meetings, since it is so close to everything. You can easily step out of the hotel and into a great restaurant just by walking a few minutes in any direction.

The rooms are typically small, just like almost all other rooms in New York, but they are clean and nicely appointed. Very quiet. Stay here - as I always do - and you won't be disappointed!

I recently stayed at the Casablanca for three nights with my two sisters. We stayed in one of their mini-suites, since this is the only room that can accommodate three guests. Two full beds, which were comfortable, but a bit short. This hotel is a real gem --location, hospitality, cleanliness, and service made it stand out. Free wi-fi and computer access if you don't have a computer. We paid ahead of time, and because of doing so, it was affordable at 20% off --especially when you consider that you receive free breakfast, snacks all day (including espresso maker--which i used a lot of), and a wine-cheese reception if you are around, every night from 5-8. The baked goods which they use every morning are from a local bakery--no supermarket items. And everything is delicious and fresh. Yogurt, fruit, cereal, hard-boiled eggs, tea/coffee, croissaints, NYC Bagels with cream-chesse---these are the staples of their breakfast. The TripAdvisor reviews really are spot-on! Loved being right in Times Square, and yet it was SO quiet! Very unique and wonderfully decorated theme for a hotel.

Wonderful place to come back to after a busy day in NY, the complimentary Coffee/Tea and cookies and pastries is awesome as is the Wine and cheese. The Service is second to none. All the staff go out of their way to help and are always smiling.

I would recommend the Casablanca Hotel to anyone who likes the homely feel. The room although on the small side was very comfortable and clean, Thanks for making my first stay in the States a memorable one. :)

Regards
Elaine

We stayed at the Casablanca as part of our 3 week honeymoon in the US. It is in an excellent location, right next to Times Square. Even though it is right in the centre, it is very quiet and you can great a great nights sleep. The rooms are great as are the free breakfast and the free wine, cheese and popcorn in the evenings. The fact you can get free hot drinks in the lounge all day is great as well.

The best thing about the hotel are the wonderful staff. We got stuck in NY because our flight back to UK got cancelled because of the volcano so we ended up staying for an extra week. All staff were extremely helpful during this time. They were great at helping to book any sight seeing and at suggesting places to eat.

I would definately recommned this hotel to my friends and family. I will definately stay at this hotel again if I visit NY in the future.

Thank you for a wonderful stay :-)

This was our first visit to NYC and we were apprehensive about travelling there with two young children. We chose the Casablanca hotel because of the location, literally 40 steps from Times Square. On arriving at the Hotel the welcome was hugely warm and immediately any apprehension was gone.
This is a small but beautiful themed hotel. It is spotlessly clean and very, very comfortable. The staff were fabulous with our children, especially the two year old - nothing was ever too much trouble. Excellent and free continental breakfast and great wine reception in the evenings. Would highly recommend this hotel and will be back there very soon.
