Casablanca Hotel by Library Hotel Collection
Ranked #3 of 469 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Hard to find suites in Times Square area that accommodate three people. Casablanca has suites with 2 double beds, plus a sofa bed. The suite was roomy enough, very clean and surprisingly quiet. The staff was exceptional - very friendly and helpful. The lounge, Rick's Cafe was very welcoming - the breakfast very high quality. This was probably the best hotel experience we have ever had, anywhere!

Room Tip: high floors are very quiet

Our family of three (2 adults one child - 7 year old) stayed at Casablanca for three nights.
very clean with wonderful staff. Location cannot be any better. Right in the middle of Time Square, this little gem is a nice place to recover from all day activities.
there are a few nice restaurants on the same street which we liked a lot, very convenient for families who don't ant to go far from hotel for a good meal.
We were very pleased with breakfast and snacks that are offered all day long.
We loved it. Thank you to Casablanca staff. we will be back soon.

Stayed here with my family and found them to be excellent. Slight hiccup with welcome letters but nothing big. Lovely hotel with an even better location next to times square.
Ricks cafe girls can't help you enough through breakfast and the evenings cheese and wine.
Bit too warm around the cafe and the hall ways however nice air conditioning in the rooms.

I stayed at the Casablanca for one night, pre cruise, and I wished I had stayed longer. I was upgraded to a room on L6 and it was very cosy, clean and quiet. The only beef I had is that the air conditioner was quite noisy. The complimentary breakfast was also fabulous. It is quite pricey but the location right in Times Square is fantastic.

This is by far the most luxurious and friendly hotel I have ever stayed in! The staff are really helpful, friendly and have glowing personalities! As you enter the hotel you feel welcome from the first minute your foot steps over the fresh hold! The rooms are spacious, very well maintained and are constantly checked everyday! One of the best bits for me personally is the sensational Rikks bar on the second floor that provides some extremely appetising treats for your personal eating pleasure 24 hrs a day! as well as free flowing coffee, a great selection of wines and cheeses everyday between 17:30 and 19:30 and a great continental breakfast every morning as well as a live pianist every Friday night! this really is an absolute gem and oasis in the busy and world renown destination that is New York City! A credit to both the country and the city itself!

Room Tip: I strongly recommend the king size suites as these were the rooms we stayed in!

Just returned from from our first trip to New York and we couldn't have picked a better Hotel, great central location (yet the room was very quiet at night - room 507) and extremely friendly, helpful, smiley staff. The room was tastefully decorated and we certainly did not have any complaints about the cleanliness, clean towels each day (twice if needed), turn down service at night and toiletries replenished each day. The breakfast choice was great and the cheese and wine between 5-8pm was very welcome. If we visit New York again this is definitely the hotel we will stay in and would certainly recommend it - 10 out of 10 !! :-)

If you asked my why this hotel is rated so high on trip advisor, I would be hard pressed to give an answer. It is old, lacks a restaurant or fitness area, there is no pool but some how it has a way of growing on you - maybe it is the old world charm. The staff is almost at the level of four seasons. The cocktail hour is a good place to meet people from all over the world and have some wine.
Tip - if you drive, there is a parking garage next door that will give you a daily rate of $ 25 with validation from the hotel.
