“Perfect location, beautiful themed hotel and the friendliest staff we have ever encountered.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2010

This was our first visit to NYC and we were apprehensive about travelling there with two young children. We chose the Casablanca hotel because of the location, literally 40 steps from Times Square. On arriving at the Hotel the welcome was hugely warm and immediately any apprehension was gone.
This is a small but beautiful themed hotel. It is spotlessly clean and very, very comfortable. The staff were fabulous with our children, especially the two year old - nothing was ever too much trouble. Excellent and free continental breakfast and great wine reception in the evenings. Would highly recommend this hotel and will be back there very soon.

The best location in New York - Times Square 20 metres away, yet quiet and peaceful! Super boutique style hotel which over 5 days stay was an absolute gem! Wonderful buffet breakfast and excellent wine and cheese reception on an evening create a superb atmosphere not experienced before. Excellent customer service from all staff - cannot do enough for you! Rooms are in the Casablanca style - and it works! For its position it was surprisingly quiet - beds were excellent, rooms immaculate with good ensuite facilities.

We love this hotel. Many times I have searched for a hotel and viewed their site on line, only to arrive and find the photos featured were old. At Casablanca what you see on their site is what you get ,and so much more! The hotel is just how it appears in the photos, beautifully decorated, in new condition and CLEAN! The suites are just as beautiful and clean! It is a great location too. The breakfast is wonderful~no need to go anywhere else. The wine and cheese is such a nice treat. The staff is awesome! I have traveled frequently and haven't found more gracious people any where. Housekeeping stopped by to welcome us with chocolates,and she brought a welcome letter with numbers to contact management if needed. She asked if we had everything we needed. We requested extra towels( just b/c I never reuse a towel) and received them right away! Wow ~I'm so tired of begging for towels! Props Casablanca! The staff hailed cabs for us,gave us a map and mapped out wherever we wanted to go,and set up spa services for us. If you don't have your every need met at Casablanca it is only b/c you didn't ask. Honestly they have already anticipated your every need and provided for it! The beds are very comfortable,even the pull out sofa. They store your luggage for free after check out too. When we were leaving the doorman hailed a cab for us, put our luggage in it and even gave us cold bottled water! Love Casblanca and NYC! No need to look any further for a great place to stay! We will be back!

We have just returned from an 8 night stay at this hotel. We loved New York City and one of the main reasons was our experience at the Casablanca. From the minute we arrived we felt welcomed. The staff were attentive and friendly, the hotel was beautiful and we felt that we really got value for money. The location was great - we couldn't believe how close we were to Times Square. For such a central location we were also surprised by the lack of street noise in our room and we slept soundly every night. The favourite part of our stay was the nightly wine and cheese reception - a lovely touch. We will definitely be returning to the Casablanca on our next trip to New York.

This hotel is better than most resorts I have stayed at. It is impeccable clean, and friendly doesn't even begin to describe it.
Although the rooms are a bit small, the attention to detail in the great bath products and breakfast and snack offerings more than made up for any reservations about the room. The location is abosultely terrific.
I can't say eneough and would without hesitation stay here again.
Tony's resturant is great and DELICIOIUS

The Casablanca Hotel is one of the most generous hotels I've ever been to. Free breakfast and snacks throughout the day and in the evenings you can kick back in their comfortable lounge and enjoy cheese, snacks and wine. You can also view DVDs from their library. The staff was very friendly and this is a wonderful respite in the midst of Manhattan. Also, centrally located to all the broadway buzz.
