Having read the reviews I was a little concerned about the noise: I needn't have worried. We asked for a quiet room prior to our trip as recommended in other reviews and were upgraded without charge to ensure our request was accommodated. We were given a room over the internal courtyard and the only noise that bothered us was that of the heating!
Situated right on the corner of Times Square, it really is idea for a city break, with everything within easy access, either walking or on to the subway.
The staff could not be more helpful if they tried: anything from toasting your bagel in the morning to loaning umbrellas for our final day (even though technically we were no longer guests). They were friendly and efficient, even turning the radio on in the evenings, which made the room even more welcoming after a long day.
Breakfast was just what you needed to set you up for the day and the cheese and wine in the evening were a great way to unwind before venturing out again.
Whilst we were there, a couple complained about the rubbish bins being emptied right outside their room in the early hours of the morning (they were moved) but if you stay in a hotel in the middle of a bustling city you have to expect a bit of city life disruption. That said, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the Casablanca to anyone and would happily return. It was absolutely perfect for our stay.

Basic room, no frills, but location and price were on par! Can store your bags all day while you wander, can walk everywhere and right on Time Square! Staff was friendly. Room was clean. Bathroom was small and towels even smaller, but I would 100% stay again!

The hotel is located right next to Time Square and Broadway, which gives our trip a lot of entertainment, dining, and shopping options.
Room was spacious and clean, and so was the bathroom. Free internet is never a bad thing.
Continental breakfast in the lounge was included in the package. Did not get to use the gym, but it was also 24/7 open.

The staff were absolutely excellent from arrival right through our stay. We arrived to a buzzing atmosphere with many enjoying cocktails in the foyer and a Jazz Pianist. Our room on the 5th floor was superb - the room had every amenity you could think of, the mini bar had every spirit available I could think of, the bathroom was incredible, and getting into bed every night after a long day of sight seeing and taking in New York, was a fantastic feeling.
Being so central, I was concerned it might be noisy but we could not hear a thing from Times Square. Great access to the subway station, so within minutes you could be downtown walking the Brooklyn Bridge, in Greenwich Village enjoying a cocktail, or taking a stroll through Central Park.
I would go so far as saying this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in, if not the best. If you are looking for a boutique hotel, with a central location I could not recommend this enough. Absolutely superb.

Small but just what is needed. The heat/ac unit is quiet and does not put you through the typical roast/freeze cycle of most hotel units. My room was quiet. Room service is reasonable and the food was delivered on time, warm and delicious. Location is right in the middle of everything.
