Casablanca Hotel by Library Hotel Collection
Ranked #2 of 473 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 2, 2014

We have just come back from an amazing trip to NY, made all the more special by the staff at the Casablanca. The hotel is exquisite and the staff superb. Nothing is too much trouble. Yes as some of the reviews state the rooms are smaller than you might get at the main hotels, but we found the room size more than enough, and what it lacks in size it more than makes up in personality. I have stayed in the big chain hotels before and the personal attention you get here blows away the competition. The breakfast was always fresh. The evening complimentary wine and cheese was very nice. What made it for me was the fact that what ever time you went out when you came back the room was always made up fresh and clean. What's more you are a stones throw from the middle of Times Square and a few minutes walk from Broadway, yet the rooms were all peaceful and quiet. The staff were always on hand to help out with local advice, booking tickets or just getting to places. I do not think we will be staying anywhere else on our next return.

The hotel isn't the biggest in NYC BUT this place is fantastic. There is nothing the staff will not do for you. If you want it they will bend over backwards to give it, nothing I mean nothing is too much trouble. I am not going to name any staff because the whole team were fantastic and a credit to the hotel. The location is fantastic, you walk out the door and there is Times Square. The rooms are a little smaller than most but they are so comfortable and quiet. If I have to say anything negative I would say that the bathroom is a little lacking in shelving for all our stuff, however, this may be because we just carry too much crap.

When we arrived in Times Square, I was in awe of all the sounds and lights surrounding it. Not 20m away stood our accommodation, and once we entered it was like going into a different world. Our room was so quiet it felt like we could have been staying in the middle of a rural area. It was great to be able to switch between the peace and quiet of our hotel and the busyness of the middle of Manhattan so easily!

The staff were very helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The 24/7 snack service, daily breakfasts and wine and cheese receptions were services which we greatly enjoyed. I can wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in New York.

This hotel is literally a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle of Times Square but yet is quiet and peaceful. The room my wife and I had was spotless and clean and had the necessary amenities. The free WiFi throughout the hotel was also excellent. Rick's Cafe on the second floor offers complimentary continental breakfast each day which gives a plentiful choice and you can also get tea/coffee 24/7 in the same place. There is also complimentary wine and cheese in an evening but we didn't partake in this as we were busy exploring NYC. All the staff were pleasant and helpful too. I really can't fault this hotel and would recommend it to anyone visiting the Big Apple.

A beautiful calming Oasis on the doorsep of the city lights! So friendly and welcoming, the staff cannot do enough for you. Rooms are really comfortable and kept beautifully clean. Tasty breakfast to set you up for the day and wine and cheese buffet from 5pm to start the evening off in style.
The location is brilliant, yet once you step inside the doors, you could be anywhere! Just what you need after a busy day expolring the city or shopping.
Would highly recommend and definately would stay again given the opportunity.
A big thank you to the wonderful staff for a fabulous stay; Keep up the good work! :))

Room Tip: We had a Deluxe Room, which was perfect

Most vacation experiences are made better or worse by the hotel experience that you have. The Casablanca Times Square definitely helped to make our recent visit to NYC an amazing trip! We stayed in a suite with a king sized bed and it was the perfect amount of space for 2 adults and a child. The complimentary breakfast and wine and cheese reception were a very nice perk. Also, being steps away from Times Square and the subway made this hotel very convenient for us. The entire staff were extremely friendly and very accommodating. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a hotel in NYC, especially if you're wanting to stay in Times Square. We will definitely book this hotel again!
