“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

Nice location, worthy of rating on trip advisor. Homely feel to rooms and hotel. Staff very helpful and add little touches to your stay that makes this place great. I would like to visit again and stay for longer in New York and I wouldn't hesitate in booking at the casablanca again.

The Casablanca is without a doubt the best find ever for a stay in NYC. The location right in the center of everything is spectacular. The second you enter the hotel, all the sounds of the city disappear and you are in your own personal oasis. Breakfast each morning is a welcome treat and the wine and cheese in the evenings is the perfect way to end a busy day or sightseeing and shopping or just to grab a small bite before heading out to see a show. The staff couldn't be more accommodating. On this trip, someone off duty showed up just to reheat leftovers for my children in the lounge microwave. (Had I known, we could have done without the leftovers - but that is just an example of how far the staff will go to please guests!)
This was my third trip to the Casablanca and I can't imagine wanting to stay anywhere else. Love, love, love it and the amazing staff!

Just returned from 17 night stay at the Casablanca, on a visit to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. The hotel was perfect place to survive a hurricane and then a blizzard. Despite these, the hotel remained an oasis of calm and relaxation the entire visit. From the wine and cheese in the evenings to the post-theatre tea and biscuits. Terrific and helpful staff, amazingly quiet and clean rooms. Can't thank hotel enough for making our stay so memorable.

One more bagel please.

On our annual mother/daughter/granddaughter trip to NYC, we stayed at the Casablance Hotel in Times Square. We've stayed at many nice hotels during our yearly excursions to the city but this one was my all time favorite. I'll definitely be returning to Casablanca in the future. From the moment we arrived we were treated with what we southerners like to call "Southern Hospitality". They welcomed us to enjoy their courtesy lounge and check our luggage upon our arrival which was much earlier than check-in time. We asked for a mini fridge and it was in the room when we arrived. Once in our room, I also asked for extra towels and wash cloths and within 5 minutes I had two persons knocking on my door to ensure I had everything I needed. This is a top-notch hotel that goes the extra mile to make sure your stay is an enjoyable one. The location of the hotel is great as its just a few steps from Times Square but the room was quiet and oh so comfortable! You can't go wrong choosing this hotel.

Traveling 3 days every week I've become a cynical traveler, expecting mediocre and hoping for better. The Casablanca Hotel exceeded my wife and my expectations in every possible way. From the service at the front desk to the smiles of the hostesses during the wine happy hour, the hotel excelled!

Initially we were concerned about the possible noise level with the hotel being only a few feet from Times Square. We had nothing to worry about, the noise level was minimal. The added bonus is we never worried about where to find a really good espresso, the hotel's complimentary expresso machine did the trick!

I would encourage travelers to NY to check out this jewel of a hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon (checked out today) and I can not rave enough about this hotel. I have stayed at other hotels in Manhattan, but nothing beats The Casablanca. It has the best location, and surprisingly is very quiet considering it literally is on the doorstep of Times Square! The rooms are clean, the staff are friendly, and you can't beat the included continental breakfast and cheese and wine from 5-8pm! We will definitely recommend this hotel to all our family and friends, and would definitely return here. Thank you for giving us the best start to our honeymoon :) Katie and Chaze from Australia.

We stayed at the casablanca for 6 nights arriving a few days after hurricane sandy. The suite we had on the 5th floor was extremely quiet, having the sitting room area gave the three of us plenty of space. The location is amazing, turn right out the door and you are steps away from Time Square go the other way and pass Bryant Park on your way up to 5th Ave, the Library and Central Station. It's all about Location,Location. The hotel staff are all kind and sincere, the girls at breakfast were cheerful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Peter on the front desk printed our boarding cards, the handyman repaired my threatening to explode suitcase with his extra strong tape. For us our trip to NYC was made even more special with the Casablanca experience!
NB we booked directly with the hotel. The hotel answers email queries promptly, professional service.

Room Tip: Our suit on 5th floor was away from the elevator. Very quiet.
