“Wonderful hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

One of the best in NYC! Great location, friendly, helpful staff, and very comfortable rooms and furnishings. Amenities were great. Breakfasts and wine and cheese reception were a pleasant surprise. Highly recommend the Casablanca!! Would definitely stay there again.

This location was perfect for walking to Broadway shows, Rockefeller Center, Time Square, the Empire state building & the subway station was just around the corner for trips the Natural History Museum etc. The Staff were continuously pleasant & professional & they made it their mission to make your stay enjoyable. They were helpful with everything from directions to arranging transportation to & from the airport as well as recommending Restaurants.

My cousin and I recently enjoyed eight nights at the beautiful Casablance Hotel. From the moment we arrived unitl the moment we left we had the most amazing time. All the staff were friendly, attentive and went above and beyond with helping us get the most out of our visit to New York.

The accommodation is second to none. Rooms were spottlessly clean, shower was great and the beds were very comfortable. As we shared and mini-suite we had ample room for the two of us.

Rick's Cafe is a great spot for breakfast, a warming coffee or wine and cheese. We availed ourselves of all it had to offer and in the process met some very charming other Casablanca guests.

I cannot recommend Casablanca highly enough. I look forward to returning with my husband in the future. Casablanca are to be commended on their wonderful staff. Such a positive experience is never forgotten.

Room Tip: A mini-suite has a little more room for those looking for some space.

After the Westin took away a delightful little brekky area (The Atrium Club) my husband and I were on the look out for a new hotel for our third trip to New York City during Thanksgiving week. This small hotel was perfect. With well appointed rooms and a "homey" feel, the Casablanca Team were some of the most caring and professional hotel staff I have come across. The room was quiet (even though we were a stones throw from Times Square where roadworks were taking place) and the breakfast/cheese & wine common area, a welcome luxury after a long day hitting the stores.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat and appreciate all of the lovely employees of this little gem that made our stay comfortable and memorable.

Recently, my wife and I spent 3 nights at the Casablanca Hotel while in NYC for a conference. The location was great. Literally feet away from Times Square on West 43rd. We were able to walk to almost everything we were interested in (Macy's, Bryant Park, theater, restaurants, Columbus Circle, Radio City Music Hall, Grand Central Station and many more). If we couldn't walk, the subway station was only one block away.
Friendly staff and great service. The breakfast was perfect to start our day but we were too busy to take advantage of the wine and cheese in the evening (we stopped in briefly once and it looked like a nice spread being enjoyed by many of the guests). Our queen room was very comfortable and good sized (for what you would expect for a NYC hotel room). Plenty of amenities in the room.

We were fortunate enough to stay three years ago at The Library (Casablanca's sister hotel) and reserved a room here based on that great experience and the rave reviews on TA. Casablanca deserves its accolades.

Examples of the friendly and efficient service? Let me mention three. 1. As we enjoyed wine and piano music on Friday night at Rick's, we asked the concierge to recommend a nearby Italian bistro where we might get last minute reservations. He suggested Trattoria Dopo Teatro and secured a reservation. Thirty minutes later -- after enjoying a second glass of a good wine and a rendition of "As Time Goes By" by the gracious pianist -- we walked five minutes and took our seats for an excellent meal. 2. A lamp bulb was out. We called the desk. Within five minutes, problem solved! 3. When we returned to the hotel to reclaim our bags and depart at 3:30 after spending the day at MoMA, my wife realized she was missing her phone charger. No problem; housekeeping had saved it.

If you are flying out of Newark, consider asking the hotel to reserve a car. Our guy in the spotless Mercedes was at least 15 minutes early on a Sunday afternoon, and the cost was only about $10 more than the price we paid for a cab into town from EWR.

Here's looking at you, Casablanca Hotel.

Just returned from a fabulous holiday staying in NY. Hotel was great. Service and staff excellent. Queen room was comfortable and a good size. Location was perfect... a few steps to time square. Breakfast and wine+cheese in evening was a perfect addition. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
