“Casablanca Hotel, New York. Best in Comfortability and Value”
Reviewed 11 September 2012

Recent trip to America stayed at the Casablanca again. Two visits this time with a stay at Washington inbetween. At San Francisco and Washington stayed at two top hotels which were nice, polished and very presentable. However nothing beats the homely feeling and comfortability factor that is always present at the Casablanca. Right from the moment you get to the front door, the whole staff are personally friendly and cannot do enough for you. They really mean it when they say "you are welcome". The front office staff, the housekeeping staff through to the 2nd floor staff, they were just so welcoming it was not funny. The rooms are first class, clean, fresh with chocolates and water left out each night. This establishment really suits those who appreciate comfort and service and know the value of a dollar. I do not think it would suit "posers" (two bob snobs) who want to laud their pretend wealth over others. The Casablanca reminds me of an old Duchess, royal, regal, little wrinkles here and there, but great company to be with. Comfortability is the word to sum the facility up. Food was great with coffee etc available 24 hours a day. You do not need a room bar fridge. The evening "happy hours" (which go for 3 hours) saw many visitors have their evenings in, not bothering to go out for tea.
And the location. 30 metres from Times Square. Restraurants on both sides. A 5 minute walk to Bryant Park and its lovely environment. 30 minute walk to Central Park along the famous 5th Avenue. For the adventurous it is a 60 minute walk to the Town Hall where the TV show "Law & Order" is sometimes filmed. Also only a 10 minute walk from "Restaurant Row" and Broadway. Taxis are a breeze from the hotel, just step to the nearest Avenue, stick out your finger and away you go. 5 minutes walk to the Subway and nearest Supermarket. With 90 Starbuck coffee houses in New York (most have toilets), there is one on the corner just down from the Hotel, and another on the way to Bryant Park.
Take our advice, if you want value for money, comfort and convenience, do not think of staying anywhere else but at the Casablanca. It is well worth it.

Everything about this hotel was about perfect. We arrived early, they stored our bags while we went to nearby Bryant Park where there was a free show of songs from five Broadway shows featuring the actual cast members. Meanwhile, they offered us drinks and snacks in the lounge, which is available 24/7. The hotel is beautifully decorated throughout. Our room was decent size (we had an upgraded room), cool, clean and comfortable.

We stayed three nights and found the hotel to be perfectly located, a half block from Times Square (but far enough off to be quieter), and a block in either direction from the different subway lines. Getting to the 9-11 memorial and Yankee Stadium were both a breeze, as was walking shows and good non-chain restaurants. We will stay again....and again.

Room Tip: Ask for or reserve an upgraded room, as we heard some of the regular rooms were a bit small.

The hotel is fairly small and lacks some of the facilities of the larger hotels. However, if your visiting the city what do you need all the extra stuff for, you are not there to play in the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and well presented. The breakfast was very relaxed and comfortable. That's all I'm interested in within a hotel. The location could not have been better, out the door, turn right, 20 yards and you're in Times Square. Spot on - unless your are insisting on 5 stars this is the ideal base to explore New York.

Room Tip: The higher the better - to avoid the noise in the street

The staff was first class and the food was good. the hotel is in a perfect position for site seeing and would recommend it to anyone.Love the wine and cheese nights, thought it was very good value for money and could walk to the shows. Close to hop off and hop on bus, shopping, and the complementary wine for our retirement was much appreciated

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor were very quite and comfortable

Great location just off Times Square so accessible but quiet. Staff were great and room and hotel generally are lovely and in perfect condition. More expensive than some but all day refreshments and cheese and wine in evening are all included so good value. Couldn't ask for more.
