The Casablanca Hotel Times Square is a member of the exclusive Library Hotel Collection. Like its sister hotels in Manhattan, it ranks among the most popular hotels in NYC. Inspired by the romance of the film, Casablanca, the hotel’s ambience is often called an oasis by guests seeking a serene escape from the adjacent Times Square Broadway Theatre District.
One of the most popular features of the hotel is Rick’s Café (pictured above), a relaxing living room where guests can visit through the day or night for complimentary refreshments, newspapers, books and magazines. Guests are welcome to a Continental Breakfast buffet each morning, a three-hour cheese and wine reception each evening, plus coffee, teas, cookies and fruit throughout the day. For those wishing to relax outside, there are outdoor tables provided in the adjacent Blue Parrot Courtyard. On the Casablanca website, travellers can choose from a variety of room sizes and rate plans to suit their needs, and enjoy exclusive offers, and packages such as a “Kiss is just a Kiss” or “As Time Goes By” including complimentary amenities to enhance your stay.
Located just a few steps from Times Square, travellers are often amazed by the convenience and excitement of our exceptional Midtown location. The Casablanca Hotel is currently the closest hotel to the famous New Years Eve Ball Drop, so book early as the hotel tends to sell out for New Year’s Eve as early as January or February. In the heart of the Theatre District, the hotel offers many of New York City’s top attractions within walking distance. There is also a huge hub for the subway just across the street that will get you anywhere in the city you wish to go.
Just off the lobby is one of the most popular restaurants in the theatre district, Tony’s di Napoli. Guests can enjoy delicious, classic Old New York style Italian cuisine served in generous family-style portions. The prices and gracious service from the staff are a hit with the Casablanca Hotel guests who often go back for more than one meal during their stay. Tony’s di Napoli has a bar for the guests as well, and room service is available for lunch and dinner.
According to General Manager, John Taboada, “What really makes our guests so happy at the Casablanca is the kindness and care they are shown by our staff. We only hire people who sincerely want to do all that they can to ensure every guest feels cared for and at home. I am so proud of the team we have here and how their passion for hospitality shines through in everything they do. We are all thrilled to see that Judging by our reviews, we continue to be successful in always putting the happiness of our guests first.
To help our guests make the most of their travel experiences, our concierge team has put together a blog called Tips For Travelers. It is full of advice we have gathered from personal experience and feedback from our guests.”

Looks like a very classy place to say in Midtown Manhattan.
oh wow – this looks fantastic, how quirky! I probably would never have booked somewhere with that name as it sounded like it shouldn’t be good, but I love the style to it – thank you for the recommendation
Looks like a really nice place to visit in Central New York.
Looks like a tardis (seemingly small on the outside, but big inside!)… and brings back memories of my time in New York. Another visit is long overdue now and I have yet to visit with family so look forward to that some day soon, I hope…
You’ve reminded me that a trip to NYC is long overdue! This looks like a super place to stay, although Times Square can be pretty chaotic. Good staff and airy rooms can make that craziness disappear is an instant!
This review comes like a gift from heaven for us. I explain why, we’re looking for a nice place to stay in January. That’s the time when we’re heading for NYC (shopping etc…). Casablanca was already one of the favorites while we were browsing around the internet. This boosts Casablanca on the top of our list. Great spot for a comfy stay in NYC. Thx!
