“Fantastic Stay!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

First visit to NYC to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and wanted a good hotel for our special occasion. The Casablanca is a great hotel, in a great location. Small enough to care and big on service. It has character and the qualities we wanted in a hotel, very clean, quiet and comfortable, where nothing is too much trouble. Whilst it was included in the price, the 24hr availability of tea, coffee and pastries/muffins is a real benefit. Breakfast selection was good and the evening wine and cheese get together is a nice end to the day or start to the evening! Keeping in touch with home was a breeze with the free Wi-Fi (good strong signal) and there is a PC and printer for the on line research or airport check-in (also free). The queen room was a lovely size and had a safe. We requested an empty fridge and it was there on arriving. All the staff were brilliant and on checking in Jeffrey phoned a local cruise operator to sort out an issue with our booking that we had found out about after leaving home! We had a fantastic time in NYC and the Casablanca was the oasis of calm to return to each day. It will be our first choice on any future visits to NYC.

Room Tip: Inner facing rooms are more quiet.

My wife and I stayed here for my 1st ever trip to New York City. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was awesome! Situated right at Times Square, we had easy access to any type of transportation needed!

Looking for that quiet yet convenient spot to stay where the theater is just down the block, good food is around the corner and warm, friendly customer service is the word of the day? Then look no further than the Casablanca Hotel at 147 West 43rd Street NYC!
From the moment you enter the lobby, friendliness and a welcoming attitude greets you. From the front desk, to housekeeping to those in Rick's Café you feel that you matter, your wishes are important and your comfort and needs are the only priority.
So the next time you are looking for the 'old' New York with it's grandeur and hospitality treat yourself and stay at the Casablanca ... CLEAN, great buffet breakfast, snacks and beverages always available for your convenience, comfortable rooms and very comfortable beds ... a sheer treat and delight in the Heart of the Theatre District.
We will be back!

Room Tip: IF you are a very light sleeper you might want to ask for a room off the 43rd Street side.

The Casablanca, like the Library Hotel offers breakfast, wine & cheese, 24 hr tea & coffee and a very helpful staff. The location, a few steps from Times Sq, will be excellent for many visitors. This is not the place for views since the place is only 6 floors high and there is not hotel restaurant (hardly a problem in NYC..The rooms are adequate in size and the entire place has a Moroccan decor. My only quibble is that they rooms have air-conditioning but (at least in May) rely on space heaters (which must be requested) for heating. This could be in keeping with the Moroccan motif.

Excellent staff attentive to all our needs...very personable and professional. This lovely boutique hotel is well-situated...just a few steps from Times Square and within walking distance of most Broadway theatres. Walked to Rockefeller Centre and enjoyed an excellent walking tour by Jonathan who was extremely knowledgeable & engaging....then took the elevator to the Top of the Rock for a spectacular view. Walked to Macy's at 34th St, shopped and walked back for a delightful late lunch at The Brooklyn Diner right beside the Casa Blanca. If going to the theatre, sightseeing and shopping is what you're looking for, plan on staying at the Casa Blanca...you'll be glad you did.

Room Tip: Book your room away from the streetlife...otherwise, quite noisy.

Went to NYC for a girl's trip. We stayed in a junior suite so that we had extra room in case one was sleeping and one was not. The room was great. A large bathroom with good storage space, two very comfortable beds, very quiet room given we were around the corner from Time's Square, ceiling fans and window units for comfortable sleeping. The staff could not have been more friendly nor accommodating. And the continental breakfast was just the right amount of food with healthy choices available.

Stayed here May 16-20, 2013. The king room was excellent with lots of room for two of us. The hotel is just around the corner from times square and all the braodway shows. Access to the subway is easy, and walking to Rockefeller center and Empire State bldg is within 20 minutes. Ricks lounge is great for breakfast, snacks and coffee. The staff was very friendly and helpful, we will stay here again when in New York.
