“Hotel Perfection in the heart of Times Square”
Reviewed 10 March 2011

I stayed at the Hotel Casablanca from 26th Feb to 1st March 2011 & can honestly say that it is the best hotel I've stayed in in New York. The location is absolutely perfect as it takes literally seconds to get to Times Square. Everyone who works there are so friendly & helpful from the two guys who greeted me when I arrived, to the female receptionist I chatted to about Bon Jovi & the guy who stood in the street hailing me a cab to get back to the airport (I'm sorry that I didn't get any of their names!). Also, the extras that you get with this hotel are fantastic, free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, complimentary continental breakfast & as a coffee addict having decent complimentary coffee 24 hours a day is fab! The room (608) was very clean, had extremely soft towels & bathrobes, a good sized bathroom (with a window) & a very comfortable bed. I will definitely be staying here on any future visits to New York.

We booked Casablanca hotel for our stay in New York after reading the tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Lovely boutique hotel in a great location, just steps away from Times Square. Hotel is very quiet despite Times Square location. Very friendly staff.

We absolutely loved the room, the lounge and the service. 24 hour snacks , wine in the afternoon and a decent breakfast pleased us all.

Casablanca is a delightful "find," and I enjoyed it so much that I am planning a next trip to New York with this as a key destination. For those of us who travel a lot, Casablanca makes an average trip a delight! The service is outstanding, with thoughtful consideration for any anticipated needs. Breakfast, 24 hour snacks, and evening wine and cheese are sumptious little feasts in a setting that is a peaceful and charming place for quiet reading or conversation. Every space is immaculately maintained...and I am fussy about cleanliness and give Casablanca a heartfelt fave star rating. This is my new favorite hotel, and there are no drawbacks!

I stayed at the Casablanca Hotel for a very short business trip, and wished I could have stayed longer! Everything was perfect. The service was great from the moment I entered the front door, the room was comfortable and well equipped, the bed was comfy, breakfast (included in the rate) was good, and the location right off Times Square couldn't be beat. I'd found the Casablanca from reviews here and want to echo all the great things others have said. I don't get to NYC often enough, but when I do I like to seek out great little boutique hotels, and this just moved to the top of my list!

A great value overall and very convenient to Grand Central Station via the Shuttle, so easy to get anywhere in NYC. The flat-screen TV is huge; plus, the DVD player and hotel library is a great bonus if you want to hole-up. There are lots of relatively inexpensive restaurants near by (eg. Brooklyn Diner).
The desk clerks were very knowable and helpful with transportation and restaurant questions. The free wine, cheese, and snacks from 5-8 pm add to the terrific value.
