“Superb”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Charming small hotel in the foot of times square. Walking distance to the square, shopping, theater productions and musicals. Staff made you feel like old friends. Nightly wine and cheese. Concierge did not disappoint and were very helpful. Great stay in a lovely hotel.

Wow what an exceptional hotel. I loved how ALL of the staff were accomodating and friendly, the location is really right on Times Square, but so quiet and peaceful. The breakfast was amazing and the breakfast staff so helpful. The style of the hotel gave it a very luxurious ambience and I would stay here again in a heartbeat. However, despite reading the reviews about the rooms it still surprised me by how small it was and we had no windows to speak of, it was ok for our 2 night stay, but next time I would certainly upgrade the room. But that is not a negative comment, simply a comment on how silly I was not to have taken notice of other reviewers. I loved the little touches in the room, the slippers, tissues, cotton wool balls, toileteries, bottle of wine, chocolates on the pillow, robes, complimentary water, etc etc......you must try this hotel, it is probably the most serenity and sanity you will find on Times Square.

Room Tip: Upgrade for a larger room with windows maybe.

Dear Wendy,

Thank you so much for the fabulous review! It was a pleasure to have you as our guest! We appreciate your sharing your insights and we also feel very strongly about giving travelers the most authentic descriptions of what we have available, so we would like to add some comments to help future travelers considering a stay with us.

The room you stayed in was a Deluxe Room with 1 Queen Bed which is a fine size for some and a bit small for others, so, dear TripAdvisor friends, please know that you can find all the details with regard to room sizes on our website, so you can make the best choice for your needs. We have some rooms that are smaller, and some that are larger, and we also have some mini suites, so if you are not sure what will work out best for you, please just give us a call and we will be happy to guide you. Also, we want everyone to know that this is not a tall tower where we offer stunning views. Instead we are a small townhouse with only 48 rooms and six stories, surrounded by tall buildings so please be aware that although every room has a window, and every bathroom has a window as well, you may not have a view to speak of and a few rooms, including the one you were in, have a film over the window because it was better than the alternative. If you want to stay and request a street facing room, please advise us of that when you book and we will do our best, but please know that you will have a bit more exposure to "the hum of the city" than the rooms facing the back where you are a bit more cocooned and protected from sound and also from light.

If I can be of any help please let me know. You can contact me directly by email at John@CasablancaHotel.com or feel free to give me a call at 212.869.1212.

Sincerely,

John Taboada
General Manager
Casablanca Hotel

From the time we walked in the front door, we were treated like royalty. This was our second stay at this wonderful hotel & we will be back again next year. Top notch in every way including the lovely lady that heated up our leftovers from Carmine's for us. Very clean, very quiet & love the breakfast and afternoon wine/cheese. Thank you to everyone!

New York was our last stop on our recent trip and though it was my 4th time I've been so far I have never used the same hotel twice but that could change next time we visit.
The front of house staff were very polite and helpful,so thank you Robert,Victor and Joseph.The room was very comfortable with good facilities.Its very well situated only a stones throw from times square.Snacks and drinks are available on a help yourself basis 24 hours and the complimentary cheese and wine sessions every evening are a great touch.The only down side was due to roadwork/construction work at times square it was a little noisy at nights but this was an exception and not the norm.
So next time we visit New York the Casablanca is top of our list and I look forward to going back.

The hotel is small and intimate. The staff are impeccable, polite, nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is as Central as you can get so don't expect tranquility.

Breakfast is excellent with lots of nice fresh food. The rooms are not luxurious but clean and comfortable. The afternoon cheese and wine excellent.

Cannot be complementary enough about this hotel. Well done to everyone at the Casablanca.

My husband and I go to NYC once or twice a year, but stayed at Casablanca for the first time in May of 2014. The hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful. Our room was extremely small but it was quiet and comfortable. We loved the large lounge on the second floor where they offered
24 hour refreshments and snacks, wine & cheese in the evening and a pretty extensive continental breakfast (I was very happy breakfast choices included unsweetened Dannon yogurt which I had with fresh fruit). The friendly staff offered to toast the bagels and toast, make the oatmeal, and make coffee drinks to order and bring to our table. It was fun to meet others during the happy hour time! But the best part of our experience was the terrific location of the hotel!

Great location, fabulous service, great value - we felt special every time we dealt with any of the staff - we will definitely return - thus is our new hotel of choice in the theatre district - Rick's Cafe is special and the outdoor patio was a great private spot for a glass of wine and just the two of us.
