Why We Love It

  • Free amenities like Wi-Fi, breakfast, nightly wine & cheese, afternoon tea, gym passes & more -- a value of over $100 per night -- compensate for a slightly higher price
  • It's one of the top-rated hotels in the city, known for its impeccable service
  • A quiet oasis-like setting, just off Times Square
  • Cozy, Moroccan-inspired decor

"An oasis" -- Frommer's

Map & Directions

The flat rate for a cab from JFK to Manhattan is approximately $50, plus tip and tolls, and the journey takes an hour. A cheaper option is to take the AirTrain from JFK and transfer to the E subway line into Manhattan at Jamaica Station. The closest subway station is Times Square-42nd Street, one block from the hotel.

Popular for its central location just off Broadway, the boutique Casablanca Hotel wins praise from Frommer's for being an "oasis" amid the hustle and bustle of Times Square. It's a great option for showgoers and sightseers. Most Midtown sights are within walking distance, including the Empire State Building (15 minutes) and the Rockefeller Center (10 minutes), and there are 16 subway lines within two blocks of the hotel.

Taking inspiration from its name, the Casablanca Hotel’s comfortable rooms overflow with bamboo chairs, mirrors and mosaic tiles, and there’s even a leafy second-floor courtyard for guests to soak up the sun. "It's all rather theatrical, but then again, so is the neighborhood," says Fodor's.

Facilities here aren’t plentiful, but there are lots of extra free perks, and the service is great. Guests are provided with free day passes New York Sports Club (on request). Tea, coffee, fruit and cookies are available throughout the day at the cozy wood-paneled Rick’s Café, and in the evenings there is a complimentary wine and cheese reception from 5-8pm. Guests can even invite a friend to join them at breakfast for no extra charge. Tony's di Napoli Italian family style restaurant is downstairs, and guests can also order in from other local eateries. Or dine out -- the trendy Hell's Kitchen dining district can be reached within 10 minutes on foot.

The simply furnished rooms have Moroccan-style window shutters, ceiling fans and free bottled water, but can be on the small side. Given the vibrant location, some of the front-facing rooms can also be a little noisy. Suites are larger, with separate sitting areas.
