“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

I have stayed at some of the top large iconic hotels in NYC so this was a change. I wanted a small friendly,quiet hotel with a lovely atmosphere,convenient location to all the action,friendly service,down to earth but high standards. And this was it. The Casablanca deserves it's top spot as No 1 on Trip Advisor.
Room 601 is a great room if you like peace and quiet

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Casablanca. Stepping out of front door - Times Square hits you a few steps down the sidewalk. All the staff are attentive and polite. Peter on the desk is a mine of information. Although we had a couple of minor issues with the room - they were dealt with efficiently. John the manager runs a tight ship ! And is tirelessly working on his continuous improvement program. He is an asset to the Casablanca. The girls will see you in march 2014. Thanks again. The Millers.

Room Tip: The suites add a sofa and desk if you wish to spread out a little

What a find! Truly just about 20 steps from Times Square but when you're in the hotel, you could think you were miles away. Our room was beautifully appointed and clean, plenty big enough for two. The breakfast and all day tea, coffee and pastries were much appreciated as were the drinks and canapés each evening in the lovely sitting room. Staff, even though they didn't know us by name, did know if we missed breakfast and were quick to offer us refreshments, etc as were the front desk staff and others who we came across during our stay. The Casablanca had a lovely feel about it and we were so pleased we went with TripAdvisor reviews.

Room Tip: I think we were on the 5th floor, and while there was no view out the window, the room and bathroom...

My wife and I stayed at the Casablanca for three nights in February, 2013. Our stay was acutally funded by a gift certificate from a relative. What a great hotel. I could literally throw a baseball from its tucked away location on 43rd Street to the dead center of Times Square. I was initially concerned about the location being too noisy do to it's convenient, yet close proximity to the Times Square, but those concerns were quickly dispensed of. Once you walk through the front doors, you're in a world of your own. You're immediately greeted warmly by all staff. This hospitality reighned throughtout Casablanca. Whether it be the doorman or the charming ladies who hosted the morning breakfasts and the evening happy hour buffet (yoohoo), they were always friendly and professional. The room was very comfortable and your needs were met at every juncture. Truly a great place to stay. We went to both a show and a movie and walked everywhere. For our furher trips to Brookland and East Village, the subway station is that same baseball throw away. Casablanca truly is in an ideal location. * As a sidenote, we never take cabs during our trips to New York; the subway is way cheaper and I downloaded a subway app on my iphone that completely does the day trip planning for you. Don't be intimidated by the subway system. It's clean and safe. So, try the Casablanca. We will certainly go back. And if you have a special somebody that would appreciate a gift certificate, we're certainly glad we were the recipients of one. Great hotel. P.D. O'Keefe, Reedville, Va

We spent a wonderful five nights in this hotel, between 21st and 26th February. A great central location meant it was easy for us to navigate about the city, which was helpful as this was our first visit to NYC. The rooms are well stocked and serviced and the decor great. The big plus was breakfast with attentive staff ensuring that the counter was always stocked with fresh supplies etc. Another innovation, which was good for meeting other residents, was the wine and cheese afternoons. No hotel is cheap in central locations but this was great value for the hospitality, facilities and general residential experience.

Room Tip: King room gives that little more space.

We recently stayed here from 25th January for 6 nights. This hotel is fantastic for so many reasons, First the staff here are amazing and will do anything to make your stay more comfortable this includes ALL staff from the front desk,doorman,cleaners and the staff in Ricks cafe who always have a smile and cannot do enough for you.
Second the location is right in times square so a couple of steps from the hotel and you are in the heart of all the action and the transport systems. However once you are back in the hotel it is so quiet you would never guess that you were in times square. Third the hotel itself is very comfortable,well decorated and very clean.
We stayed in room 601 and it was lovely. Bathroom was great with a good shower and the room had everything you need. Ricks cafe with the complimentary breakfast (including bagels to die for) and complimentary cheese and wine in the evenings (very welcome after a big day sightseeing) was a welcome oasis and a great place to chill out.
I could not praise this hotel enough and would return tomorrowif i could. Well done to all of the casablanca staff you have got it right and well deserve your number one spot on tripadvisor. Hopefully it wont be long before we return again.
