        Every time the staff saw us they would ask if they could do anything for us or if we needed anything, extremely considerate and helpful.

        Location was great, just off Time Square, staff in general very good(one lady on the front desk was not of the same standard as the rest of the staff) nothing was any trouble. Represented good value for money.

        Rooms were not large, but it's New York.

        Everything! My room, although small, was clean and comfortable, the location is fantastic but without doubt, the one feature of the Casablanca, above everything else, is the superb attitude of the staff. Excellent, unrivalled, customer service! I have no hesitation in recommending The Casablanca and will definitely stay here again on my next visit to New York.

        There was nothing I disliked about this hotel.

        We enjoyed the very helpfull and warm staff, especially Vanessa and Peter in the front desk, Vanessa would care for everything , even those issues you yourself forgot to ask about....excellent breakfast, lovely staff , good rooms (with all things taken care of----big or small). Great location. Feeling of a home. You feel you are really taken care of all the time. We will definitely come back and turn it to be our hotel in New- York.

        The Casablanca Hotel exceeded my expectations, which were high after reading reviews on trip advisor! Location fantastic, just steps from Times Sq yet it was quiet. The staff were so friendly. The breakfast and cheese and wine reception every eve was a lovely touch and very enjoyable. Free access to the computer and internet was also a bonus! Cant say enough good things about it, just fabulous!

        It was in a perfect location. All the staff were friendly. The food and the wine provided in the cafe each evening were excellent.

        Bottles of water and ice were only put in my room on the first day. I would have liked water and ice every day. I was not told about telephone messages that were left for me. There were not enough tables for breakfast in the cafe. The low tables are fine when relaxing with a glass of wine in the evening, but they are not suitable when trying to eat breakfast.

        Excellent situation for Times Square yet very quiet. Wonderfully helpful and cheerful staff. Excellent breakfasts, snacks through the day and wine / nibbles in the evening. A real oasis in the bustle of New York. We'll be back!

        To all the staff at the Casablanca Hotel we wish to express our sincere thanks for helping to make our stay in NY so enjoyable and memorable. The staff were beyond excellent and the hotel itself was a haven amonst the madness of NY. We were truly sorry to leave you. Thanks again and a particular thank you to the lovely staff in Rick's Cafe. It was a very memorable part of our time in the USA and we will be back soon. Marylyn & Jim Bennett

        It was lovely to have drinks available throughout the day. The breakfast provided a good selection and set us up for the day ahead. Unfortunately we weren't able to take advantage of the cheese and wine, but it was good to know that if we were around, we could have had an evening snack.

        Little touches gave a personal touch - loved the wine and cheese reception in the evening and a wonderful breakfast each morning. High quality food and good wine. The whole hotel seemed to be an oasis of calm and relaxation just steps away from Times Square. We loved it. The staff members were extremely pleasant, helpful and welcoming.

        An oasis in the middle of Time Square. Fantastic helpful staff who go the extra mile, great breakfast and wine and cheese at 5pm. Fab decor.

        It was very hot during our stay and the air con was very loud.

        Very pleasant and helpful staff. Clean and quiet room. Complementary continental breakfast and evening wine and appetizers were very good. Great location for theatres and Times Square. Very good access to subway.

        Room was small and cramped. Bed was very small--not a queen size. Window air conditioner blew right on bed and was noisy. Television was placed perpendicular to bed so it couldn't be watched without twisting your head uncomfortably.

        Superb location and a quiet hotel in spite of being 'on top' of Times Square. Staff were friendly without being over familiar and facilities and features including the daily 5:00pm wine reception were excellent.

        Nothing negative about this hotel except that the room sizes are smaller than we've experienced elsewhere in USA but nonetheless comparable to other city hotels.

        Convenience to nyc action. Very short walking distance to all my day and evening functons. Staff were exceptional and accomodating. I'd definately stay there again.

        The room we occupied was adjacent to the exhaust fans of the attached restaurant, Tony'S. The window unit air conditioning drew in the cooking/grease odors into the room. Although they seemed to be filtered at their ducts, the room did waft of the unwanted fragrance. In the future, I shall request a different location at the opposite side of the hotel.
