    This was a GREAT experiene.  The staff amazing, the location perfect, great free breakfast and the wine and cheese event was perfect.  The rooms are small-ish but you will lack for nothing.  Great location for jumping off to many parts of NYC.  You will not be unhappy here!

    If I could give six stars I would! I just returned from my trip to NYC and the Casablanca could not have been a better choice! First and foremost the location is perfect. On a side street off of Times Square, you get the proximity to all the action without all the noise (dont get me wrong, there is still a bit of noise). Secondly, the decor is lovely. A true boutique hotel with the comfort of a B&B and the professionalism of a big chain. The lobby has a nice waiting area, and Rick's Cafe upstairs is the perfect place to sit while you have breakfast in the morning (a delicious complimentary spread with great coffee and signature new york bagels!) or lounge in between outings (plenty of room to stretch out, play the piano, watch tv, read a book, or access the internet with their complimentary computer, printer, and wifi). The icing on the cake is definitely the wine and cheese tasting in the evening. A nice, modest selection of treats to partake in before you head out for the evening. Sometimes it is awkward to partake in the hotel lounge, but this is more like hanging out in a communal living room. Also a great chance to chat with fellow guests if you are so inclined. The rooms themselves are on the small side, but the beds are large and comfortable and there is plenty of room for two people to get ready at the same time in the bath room. If you will believe it, the one thing that was better than all these ammenities was the staff. They could not have possibly been more accomodating. We came in to drop of our bags early in the morning after a long red eye flight and after some breakfast upstairs and a bit of sight seeing, I really wasn't feeling well. Even though check in was not until 3 pm, the staff was kind enough to "put a rush" on our room and within an hour I was laying down. Hassane especially was a joy. So helpful bringing water and ice, reccomending the best routes to get somewhere and helping us get a cab. He was so personable and it did not come across as forced. We love love loved the Casablanca and highly reccomend it!

    My husband and I had an amazing trip to NY and we loved staying at  Casablanca. Great service and kind staff.  The room is small but clean.

    But my all-time favorite feature was their wonderful breakfast and Happy Hour! They have a beautiful and spacious lounge area, called Rick's Cafe. They provided wine, cheese, snacks, desserts and a very fancy espresso machine that makes the best cappuccinos in town!  We also love the Italian restaurant next door -the lobster dinner was delicious.

    When I tell you this is in the Heart of Times Square, believe me! You walk out of their lobby, turn right and voila...New York City!!

    I loved staying at this oasis of a hotel, Casablanca. Great service and kind staff. The decor was fantastic; a great North African themed-boutique hotel.

    The actual bed in our room needed a new mattress...but aside from that this hotel had great amenities. I was really fond of their tiled bathrooms.

    But my all-time favorite feature was their Happy Hour! What a great way to unwind, catch-up with the world (newspaper reading, watching TV), write postcards, all while hanging out in their beautiful and spacious lounge area, called Rick's Cafe. They even have an outdoor courtyard attached. They provided wine, cheese, snacks, desserts and a very fancy espresso machine that makes the best cappuccinos in town!

    New York is great but a little intimidating to this Valley Girl, so it was really comforting to discover this hotel.

    I would return again.

    Happy Travels!

    We just got back from President's Day weekend at Casablanca.  It was amazing!  Their employees are fantastic.  Absolutely no knickel and diming you when you arrive, as it was all-inclusive.  No wonder it is Ranked #1 for all of New York on Trip Advisor.  We are believers.

    The daughter (who is 14) and I stayed here on our recent trip to NYC. We loved it.

    The location is excellent: you walk out the door and you are in Times Square. The room was very small (par for the course for New York), but well furnished, very clean and very quiet, and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was friendly, service-oriented and very helpful, from the front desk to the housekeepers. The room was on the pricey side, but included a substantial continental breakfast and a really nice evening wine and cheese reception. The "cafe" was open 24 hours with coffee, cookies and fruit, and it became our habit to drop in mid-afternoon for a restorative latte and croissant before we began our next round of running around the city.

    We'll likely be back in New York this summer, and the Casablanca would be my first choice for accommodations.

    The Casablanca is in a class of its own.  Right as you walk in the doors you are greeted by the small staff of 2 at the front desk.  After the quick check in you take the small elevator up to your room.  The rooms are small, but very clean and they are the true Times Square essence that you are looking for when staying at a midtown boutique hotel like this.  Looking out the bathroom window, you look into a small alley with skyscrapers all above, and out the bedroom windows Times Square awaits!  The accessories in the room like the TV or bathroom are nothing to write home about, but what really sets this hotel apart from many of the other "Super Hotels" is the daily wine & cheese happy hour in their spacious lounge room.  It is designed to look like an old smoking room, with large couches and chairs.  They have free cheese, wine, champagne, breakfast, and all of the chairs can be moved to look out onto hustling and bustling West 43rd street!

    I can't even begin to explain how close this is to Times Square.  You literally walk out the doors, turn to the right, and you are right there in the heart of Times Square! This hotel is perfect if you love flashy restaurants, and clubbing, as it is very close to many of the top spots in Manhattan.

    This little boutique Hotel really does set itself apart from many of the colder "Super Hotels" and if you are looking to stay at a place where the staff greets you by your name every time you walk in the door, stay at the Casablanca!

    Wow, what can I say. My girlfriend and I stayed here for a 'special get away from queens night'. We stayed in the city stayed out late and didnt' have to worry about catching a taxi or the (E) home. This is probably one of the greatest values in all of NYC. The staff was great, very friendly. The room is small, but this is NYC. There are mini-bars in the room which are comparable in price to NYC bars. They have complimentary continental breakfast, 24 hour snacks, and cheese and wine, which was great, but then charged us 1.30 per local (212) call. The local call charge is really the only complaint we had, not that it's a huge issue but we were just unaware that we were being charged. I would recommend to anyone.

    I give this 5 stars because it is great at being the what it is: a small, old hotel, a half a block off Times Square. Even though it is old, there is nothing worn. I enjoy the decor. The rooms are small. The elevators are tiny (but fast). There are flat screen TVs, outlets, a great lounge 24 hours a day, with a muffin & cereal type of breakfast and a very generous wine & cheese complimentary happy hour.

    The staff is superb. English is spoken and understood by all. Helpful and smart. Many of the more convention hotels around the country that I stay in would be lucky to have this group as their employees.

    In closing, the rooms are tight, and the cooling is from a very functional window unit. I smell the bacon from the grill of the restaurant next door and hear their exhaust fan as white noise in the background. That said, I would stay here again if I wanted this location.

    What a wonderful little boutique hotel right in the middle of Times Square!  Located on the corner of 43rd St and 7th Avenue, it's close enough to all the touristy Times Square nonsense without having it all forced on you.  There's even a parking garage adjacent to the hotel, where the rates are very reasonable, at least by the Manhattan standards.

    My friends visiting from California were staying at this hotel.  They paid $300 a night, and they considered it a great value.  It's true, you couldn't beat the location if you were a tourist in Manhattan.  Me, I prefer to find a good Priceline deal on a hotel around Newark Airport and then drive into the City if I have to.  $50/night for a room at the Newark Renaissance, anyone?

    Still, during the day I spent more time at Casablanca than I did at my own hotel.  And why not?  The rooms here are decent size (again, by the Manhattan standards) and the bathrooms are beautifully appointed in the style of the 1950's.  Casablanca also has some of the friendliest staff you will see anywhere, helpful without being pushy.  

    But would that keep me hanging around someone at some random hotel?  Of course not!  What kept me coming back again and again (and again and again) was their complimentary coffee/tea/pastries offerings all day long.  I must have made myself at least 10 cappuccinos over the 2 days there.  That espresso machine was awesome.  From 5 to 7 pm, they offer complimentary wine and cheese.  I don't drink wine, but there is nothing wrong with having a few dozen cubes of assorted cheeses.  Did I mention that all of this was free?  Well, I am sure my friends paid for it, but I didn't.

    Next time I am in Times Square, I might just venture over to Casablanca for a quick coffee break.  Just kidding!

    The Casablanca Hotel is perfect. The staff was informative and caring. The wine and cheese at the end of the day was relaxing. The breakfasts were simple but filling. The rooms were quiet and comfortable. The location of the hotel was central and within walking distance of everything. I'd go back to this hotel in a New York minute.

    Casablanca Hotel was first class all the way! From the moment I checked in until the time I checked out, they treated me like a true guest in their home. I do not want to come off sounding corny and all, but literally from the moment I walked through the front door, I was greeted with a smile and a welcome. Check in was quick and painless. I was given an unexpected upgrade to one of their mini-suites on the 5th floor.  

    In any event, the mini-suite was something special. I mean right outside my window was the hustle and bustle of Times Square, yet I sat in silence and was able to do some work with none of the usual city distractions outside.

    If you like the sounds of cabs beeping, people talking, and just the overall background noise of NYC, then open their windows and enjoy.

    The living room was quaint. Hey to be honest I was only expecting a regular sized typical hotel room, so to get this added feature sure was nice. The living room had a regular television (sorry no flat-screen folks) and a work desk. One of the best features for an internet obsessed person like myself, was that the hotel offers free wireless internet throughout the hotel!

    None of that "nickel-and-diming" like many of those others hotels. I mean seriously in the year 2009 no hotel should be charging you for internet usage. If you are without a laptop, go to the second floor and they have a computer station in the beautiful Rick's Cafe.

    Speaking of Rick's Cafe, just another great perk when you stay here. Remember how I mentioned all of the "freebies" this hotel has to offer? Well Rick's Cafe will keep you full throughout your stay. Named after the bar Humphrey Bogart owned in the movie Casablanca, this is definitely a nice feature for people on a budget.

    I mean instead of going out and spending cash on breakfast in this expensive city, simply head on down to Rick's between 7am and 10:30am for just about everything your hungry belly desires in the morning. Their complimentary European style breakfast hit the spot. I had some bagels and a hazelnut coffee. Delicious.

    Between 5pm and 8pm Rick's Cafe offers guests free cheese and wine. It is the perfect way to spend a few hours with friends or family after a day around Manhattan. I mean I am typically a Guinness drinker, but I sure did love some of that free white wine. They also have a large screen television and a fireplace in Rick's Cafe.

    This part of the hotel is open 24 hours a day and I tested that by going down at around midnight for some tea and cookies. Okay actually my wife asked me to go down for some tea and cookies. But either way, I loved that I was able to just go to the second floor and have access to a coffee machine, hot water for tea, cookies, fruits, and other times without leaving the hotel.

    I was unable to check out the hotel's featured restaurant, Tony Di Napoli, but from what I have read about it online, it definitely is a popular Italian eatery. So if you happen to check it out drop me a line. I also did not use their complimentary pass to the New York Sports Club, but then again I have not seen the inside of a gym since high school.

    In closing, I truly enjoyed my stay at the Casablanca Hotel. It is within walking distance to such great city sites as Bryant Park, Times Square, and many top Broadway shows. When you are in the city, I highly recommend you checking them out.

    p.s. I am lazy and just took this from my own travel blog. But you get it...the place is good.

    Wonderful hotel right in the middle of Times Square.  We loved it.  We felt like royalty from the moment we checked in.  I would highly recommend this hotel to couples wanting to stay in Times Square to enjoy some theater, museums and shopping.  Very close to the subway and all the theaters.

    i would stay here any time I'm in NY.

    I hate to admit to this, but this review is LONG over-do (two years!). I guess it's a good thing that I still think "Oh, I NEED to write a review for the Casablanca" since I still reminisce about my wonderful and memorable time there.

    My family and I go to New York for my birthday/Thanksgiving every year. We have stayed at a large variety of hotels, but none quite like the beautiful and quaint Casablanca. We decided to stay here for my "Sweet 16". The Casablanca is a true "boutique hotel". The theme is Moroccan inspired and is very very charming to say the least. The lobby has an antique and cozy feel. The rooms are very clean and the beds are very comfortable (great for resting after a day of the city hustle & bustle). The service is truly exceptional: they were all very friendly and eager to please. The outdoor patio is also really sweet, it is nicely tucked away and it's quite romantic. My absolute favorite part about this wonderful hotel is the lounge area. Every morning they have pastries, coffees and cappuccinos available for the guests. Every evening from 5-8pm the hotel offers complimentary wine, cheese, champagne, assortment of teas and coffees, and pastries. It was very relaxing and comforting to come enjoy the refreshments after being out in the cold.

    Although we were not able to stay at the Casablanca last Thanksgiving, we plan to return for my 18th birthday. I honestly cannot wait to experience the charm of this enchanting hotel again. Whenever I hear someone say they are going to New York, I ALWAYS encourage them to stay at this phenomenal hotel so they too can have a delightful experience. The Casablanca is my favorite hotel in New York and I recommend it to all that want a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere.

    This hotel is five stars through and through and I cannot say enough good things about it. If you are considering staying at this hotel, DO IT!, trust me you won't regret it.  

    Also if you are looking for good Italian, Tony's is great. Traditional Italian food, but very delicious.

    BEST Value in NYC!
    I actually considered not posting a review  in the selfish hope they would not be sooo BUSY and booked all the time (well, that is probably an exercise in futility). Yes, I love this NYC hotel.
    When you consider the Location (Great). Walk out and you are in the middle of Times Sq. , Hard Rock across the street, Starbucks next door (even though they have great Free coffee all day on the 2nd floor lounge) , Walgreens diag across the street, Police station across the street.  And I felt totally safe  in this area for the 10 days stay.
    The rooms are quiet, and after a long day in NYC (in the rain and cold)  arriving at the 2nd floor lounge is like an oasis.  With Wine and Champagne,  Cheese and snacks (including Vegs).  And they also have a Cappuccino / Latte  machine.  Many loved it,  though I did not use it.  
    Yes, they have Orange juice and another juice , along with different kinds of coffee and teas. Pastries, fruits, snacks, hard boiled eggs, breads etc.  
    *My only complaint is , this is NYC  ... so, where is the Bagels???  (in the 2nd floor lounge)   No,  none to be found. :)  ...  Even though there sister Hotel (Elysee Hotel) even had my favorite Cinnamon and Raisin bagels, and cream cheese  (and they would toast them if you wanted)  ... which by the way seemed to be a big hit (not only with me lol).
    There is  Free WiFi  in the Hotel and Free Cable Internet connection in your room just in case WiFi is acting up.   Which  (strangely) in the 2nd floor lounge the WiFi is weak, if at all.
    Service and Friendliness is already well documented.   And is just another thing that makes this hotel  better than the rest.

    Yes, as others have said this is a older, smaller hotel   ...  But, it's clean and very well kept.

    Perfect 100% in every possible way.  The ambiance is delightful!  

    The Casablanca is like stepping back into a grand hotel, in another century.  The furnishings and decor match the movie by the same name, but with every possible modern convenience hidden from obvious view, tucked neatly within every nook, and cranny.  

    The rooms were charming, romantic and luxurious!

    For being located at the hub of all activity, the hotel was incredibly peaceful, private, and quiet.  

    The service was personalized and friendly, calm and never rushed, relaxed yet impeccable.  It was like being the guest of an incredibly gracious host.  The staff was there for every beck and call, but not at all invasive - as they tended to my every need.  

    The location can't be beat, as everything is within easy walking distance, since the Casablanca is located in the heart of everything, that is exciting and vibrant about New York City.

    Getting around is super easy.  I had a car, but opted to walk, and hail cabs.  The cabs were never more than a single snap of my fingers away.  

    I would recommend the Casablanca Hotel to anyone who would like a unique boutique hotel experience.  I would urge anyone with romantic intentions, to spend a couple of sumptuous days and nights.   It's not cheap, but the experience is definitely worth the splurge.  

    I LOVE, love, love this Hotel!  I have stayed in some of the best Hotels in the world, but the Casablanca Hotel - is my absolute favorite.

    Be sure to reserve well ahead of time!!  I was hesitant to write this review, for fear it might be sold out - for my next stay.

    Easy subway access.  Short walk to broadway plays.  Easy walk to MoMA, Central Park, 5th Ave shopping.  Reasonably priced.  Room small but comfortable; no microwave or fridge.  Will stay here again.

    The staff was super friendly and very nice.  They helped us figure out some great nighttime activities during our NY stay.

    We loved this place! Definitely one of the best hotel experiences we have had in NYC. It is small and their customer service is superb. There is no pool or room service for the most part, but for an amazing New Years Eve experience, go here! You can see the ball drop from their rooftop party and the area out front is basically yours so the crowds are not much of a bother. There are restaurants and bars next door. We will be back!!!

    Next door is Tony's Di Napoli a great family style classic Italian restaurant!

    This hotel has two major things going for it.  1) location, right in the heart of Times Square and 2) Its staff who will go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.

    To be clear, this is not a five star hotel in and of itself.  it's older, but clean and well maintained.  It was comfortable and we had absolutely no issues with our standard room.  It is not the Ritz Carlton and it does not try to be.

    If you want a clean, comfortable boutique hotel right in the heart of things with a staff that will do their best to make your stay comfortable, look no further.

    We stayed the week after New Years in 2013 and we want to thank to hotel and its staff for a great stay.  We'll see you next time.

    I was treated to a stay here and I was charmed. Stepping into the Casablanca really does make you feel as though you've walked into 1940s Morocco or Paris. It's a gorgeously appointed, beautifully maintained, lavish little treasure.

    I've never stayed at a hotel where the staff introduced everyone at the front desk and left me a personalized thank-you note in my room. I've never stayed at a hotel where, when I called the concierge and asked for an extra blanket, it was there in 60 seconds. This place raises the bar to new heights in terms of customer service. It's gorgeous, and I really hope I'll have another chance to stay there in the future.

    The staff is excellent, the public transit is everywhere, and it's a great spot!

    The Casablanca is one of our favorite hotels in NYC. It's located in the very heart of Times Square, just a few doors from all the craziness, excitement and noise. It is  truly an amazing location for those who love Broadway and its surroundings. The Casablanca has an old world charm with Moroccan details throughout the hotel. We love to return to the hotel in the afternoon for the complimentary wine & cheese before heading out again to catch a show. This quiet hotel is very popular and has a limited amount of rooms, so make your reservations early.

I would definitely return.

    I agree with another review... LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. You can't beat this location right on Times Square. Although the room was small, we were not planning on spending a lot of time in the room. It was comfortable and everything worked. The Hotel staff was VERY friendly, from the moment we arrived. Offering to make recommendations and asking if everything was ok. Their evening reception was great, and the continental breakfast in the AM was also, very good.

Rooms on the small side owing to age of hotel. Bathrooms small too, and amenities are not up to a high end standard. Coffey maker in room was good. Probably really 3.5 stars.

    We had a great stay at the Millennial New York. It was great fun to wander downstairs and find an episode of "Castle" being filmed in the lobby. This hotel is a change of pace from your basic Weston, Hyatt, etc. so don't expect an oversize marble bathroom and 84 plugs on the desk. For business purposes I found it adequate,

    Most attentive, best service I've ever had in any hotel experience outside of a resort. Quiet, clean room, well maintained and updated. It is well designed for the space to where it did not feel like I was bumping into things or claustrophobic (that's a lot to say for an NYC hotel). The hotel is beautiful and has great architectural and design details in the lobby and hotel room. The location is fabulous - central Times Square, close to an Avenue but not on it (thereby avoiding the noise from traffic).

    If you want a no nonsense, relaxed stay in NYC and are willing to pay a little more for that guarantee, stay at the Casablanca Hotel. It's especially worth it for a short stay - why pay just as much for low-to-no quality and be further from the action?

    Had a wonderful time at the Casablanca Hotel over the Air Show weekend. The place is so grand and historic and beautifully appointed, it truly is like stepping back in time. The bed was so comfortable, lakeside view fantastic. The service was truly over the top, I was celebrating my birthday and when I got back to the room the first night there was a beautiful chocolate cake with fresh fruit waiting in my room.   All the staff went out of their way to make me comfortable. Location is fantastic for anything you want to do within walking distance. I will definitely be staying here again!

    Like the lounge area for a temporary escape from madness.  This place is kind of a hidden gem if such a thing exists in Timesquare.

    Is located in the middle of Little NY . There are many Japanese restaurants, but it is good when it is tired of  Western. This side there will be history that can not be forgotten for the Japanese. Please to walk by all means.

    We have loved this historic warm hotel over many visits but are concerned she needs some TLC. A small expense and easy preparation for hard boiled eggs would go a long way! Comfortable stay in an incomparable location.

    The bar didn't seem to be open the published hours while I was there  but this was a very nice place to stay and conveniently located to where I wanted to be in New York .
    My bed was comfortable and my room was generously sized. The bathroom was nicely appointed but not large. Staff was friendly and attentive.

    Have stayed at this hotel on several ocassions. Overall, the people are great but the hotel needs work. In need of a makeover. Many places need paint, carpeting and a fresh look.Was also told that I would have access to the club (Diamond Member). After going from the 5th floor to the club, discovered that neither of my 2 keys had been coded for Club access. This resulted in an unnecessary trip back down to the front desk and back up to the club.

    High quality facility. Graciously proportioned spaces including the rooms. The bed I had was to for! Staff is superb and I left a "tell" on the floor to see if housekeeping vacuumed - they did. My day was so rushed I really didn't get a chance to sample what the property had to offer but what I did see was very good. for cost . I was there at a special business rate. Cost may prohibit me from staying there without that consideration.

    The Casablanca Hotel is awesome with high class finishes of glitz and glamor, and that  could only be found in the best Hotels. The rooms are great and clean. the staff very helpful and friendly. We stayed here for a retirement party and enjoyed the whole experience. I would stay here again if in town.

    A long over due review. I stayed here with my boyfriend couple of month ago and I can't stop talking about this hotel. I've stayed at other five star hotels in NY but nothing compares with Casablanca Hotel. This place feels like home. the staff working here treat you like friends;they went above and beyond to make the guests happy. The price you pay covers breakfast wifi wine and cheese. Our room was a nicely decorated and spotless(you can literally eat off the floor), not huge but very spacious and comfortable for 2 people. Ricks place Cafe is open 24 hours a day and they have complimentary snacks coffee tea and fruits. 10 out of 10! I would recommended it to everyone. This is the only hotel I would stay at in NY.

    The rooms were comfortable, clean, and spacious. The hotel is located within walking distance to many tourist opportunities, restaurants, and park across the street. There are none of the usual amenities found in lower priced hotels such as refrigerator and microwave in room but did provide in-room coffee. The restaurant located in the lobby was wonderful....had everything....breakfast, lunch, dinner (inexpensive) and a nice atmosphere to hang out. Very much enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay there again when in the  New York area.

    This is a really lovely hotel - it has been beautifully recreated - fabulous over-the-top ceilings, tromp oil and decorations in the foyer and wonderful 30s feel and decor. The service is great and the rooms are large and you can open the windows. The beds are so comfortable... only hitch the shower is full on and we're not used to using so much water. It's close to the great things to see in New York, the wonderful Art Deco buildings and facades, the fabulous Walt Disney Concert hall, the decaying glory of the old theaters on Broadway. You can also explore New York, by bus - we went to the amazing Casablanca Hotel.

    I stayed at the hotel this past August for 2 nights.  Everything was phenomenal, immaculately clean and superb customer service.  The wine/cheese and breakfast (both complimentary were more than I expected).  This place is definitely frequented by families and and older individuals, not by twenty-somethings like myself.

    The only disappointment would be the complimentary tempurpedic pillows.  I slept on the regular pillow the first night, but requested the other tempurpedic pillows as an option.  These were not really the brand tempurpedic pillows...it seemed as if these had been worn out and never replaced...

    Hands down the best hotel to stay at when going to see Broadway shows.  Nice staff, great Cafe, classy rooms.  I'll definitely be back.

    Really awesome option, especially if you want to impress your out of town guests.  Small lobby.  Though mostly friendly staff.  Nice staircase leading up to the awesome second floor lounge, complimentary breakfast, really nice size rooms, huge bathrooms, gloriously decorated, AWESOME ceiling fans, sunken bath, just awesome.  

    Only issue I had was the BEYOND small elevator.  Claustrophobia central.  I mean...yeah...probably made that way to add to the theme of the hotel.  But me no likely.

    Still, awesome hotel option!

    I had the Pleasure staying in this amazing hotel for only one night in Feb 2015.

    I must say that originally I booked a different hotel which when I arrived was overbooked, and they had no room for me. After all the reviews here on TripAdvisor I decided to give a call directly the Casablanca hotel and hope they still have rooms available for today. To make a long story short, not that they did welcome me but they charged the lowest rate I could ever hope for and even upgraded to a King room. WOW what a start!!!

    Of course as many others wrote here, you cannot beat the location for the tourist in NYC - the Time SQ is actually in front of your room. I must say, I'm personally not a huge fan of this area but Casablanca made me forget all about the noise and the hassle of the crazy Time SQ.

    The hotel as you all know dedicated to the legendary Casablanca movie. It is an Old school charm that I personally was skeptical I'm going to like but not only I did, I actually fell involve with it.

    When you first enter the hotel, there is more of a luxury building welcome foyer then the "receptions" that you might be used to from another hotels. From the bellboy to the reception team they give you the feeling "Ohh you finally arrived...we've been so waiting for you".

    Then on the 2nd floor there is the lounge area where everything happens... this is a chill out oasis in the middle of TimeSQ. You can find an amazing free breakfast, an all-day refreshments, fruits, pastries, a great espresso machine with an actually great espresso!!!!! Every evening between 5pm and 8pm you can find there a great wine-and-cheese reception.

    Now let's go to the room. Well I must say that you will not find here any WOW effect but - they are all beautifully decorated!!!! Supper Supper Supper clean!!!!!! And the most important thing is the variety of amenities which is hard to describe. From sleepers and bathrobes to "make up" towels and amenities like eyes sleep masks and ear plugs. Anything you might desire or maybe forgot to bring with you is here.

    Another very important note I'd like to say is about the prices. While the hotel rooms might not be on the very low side aseptically during the travel season, the prices for everything else you might spend while you stay are more than reasonable! This made me very happy and actually gave me the feeling these guys want you to feel comfortable and not just "make money of you".

    I never saw a hotel in NYC that charge only 21$ for a bottle of a very nice Chardonnay for example or 2.5$ for minibar drinks.

    You should also try the Tony's restaurant that is adjacent to the hotel and provides a room service. They are very very good with also a very reasonable prices.

    I'm sure I'm even not close to express all the great things about the Casablanca Time SQ hotel, but I sure know that I found a new home away from home for every stay I'll have in NYC.

    And for the hotel team:  thank you guys for doing what you do! For loving your work and for making us the travelers have this amazing opportunity to stay in a place where not only our money is important!

    Can't wait for my next visit.
