We really enjoyed our recent trip to New York and staying at Cassa Hotel and Residences played a significant part in it.
We got the hotel through Booking.com at a reasonable but under no circumstances cheap price. It is worth having a look on priceline or hotwire since the hotel is quite often offered at significantly lower prices through the “veil of anonymity”. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a US credit card to try my luck but can’t really complain on the price I got for a 4-star hotel right in the middle of Manhattan.
In terms of location, Cassa is ideal for walks to all Manhattan attractions. One block from Times Square (close but not too close to this central but really packed area) and 3-4 blocks from Grand Central Station, it was situated very close to restaurants, theaters, cafés, shops and museums. We are indeed very fond of walking around a new city (we feel we are getting most of the real city rhythm that way) and we never felt threatened when we were walking around there even when we were returning to the hotel late at night.
The room was very cozy with modern decoration and all the amenities we would expect. Big and comfortable bed, huge TV with a great selection of channels, mini-safe, mini-bar, iron and ironing board, radio, etc. We were staying on the 18th floor but unfortunately our view was to the building right next to us so not much to see. One thing that I would like them to add is free WiFi in the rooms. I honestly cannot understand with today’s internet prices, why they need to charge USD 10 per day for internet access. OK, I understand that they are after the profit they lost when people replaced hotel telephones with mobile phones but still internet is so cheap these days. Don’t think that you will have a problem in finding a free wifi location though since there is a Starbucks right across the street where you can get a nice coffee and check emails on your phone/laptop.
The hotel staff was really polite and helpful in the 1-2 things that we asked from them. The daily recommendation list from the concierge that they were leaving in our rooms every day was a very nice touch and twice we had dinner at these places and enjoyed it very much.
All in all, we had a great stay at the Cassa Hotel and Residences and I would definitely stay again. Please note that the hotel is very new and some parts are still under construction (e.g. lobby) so I guess that it will be even better when the construction work is finished.
