Editor’s Review of Casablanca Hotel

Less than 100 yards from Broadway and the heart of Time Square is this hotel, which makes guests feel as though they've entered a portal and wound up in Morocco. Casablanca Hotel is more than a name. It's the scent of incense in the hallways. It's the wooden shutters, furniture and ceiling fans. It's the mosaic tiles and statues of tigers guarding common areas. It's the tiny staircase where you'll pass other families from around the world who have descended upon New York for the same sightseeing as your family.

Yes, Casablanca Hotel is family friendly. At check in, as we're told there is a nightly wine and cheese reception beginning at 5, the clerk is quick to point out that children are welcome and there will be popcorn,
... more cookies and fruits for the kids. We've heard that before but happily, we are not the only ones with children during the reception.

The hotel features standard rooms and suites, as well as complimentary breakfast each morning, but you just can't beat its Times Square location, directly across the street from a couple of the many area theaters and surrounded by restaurants. However, just those few yards down a side street off Broadway also lends itself to a quiet night for sleeping, once the kids are tuckered out and ready to finally close your eyes. (As I write, my duo are still up an hour past their bedtime with no signs of stopping!) less

An intimate hotel, Casablanca only features 48 rooms and suites. The smallest rooms are only suitable for one to two people with a full-sized bed, so steer clear of these when traveling with the kids. There are rooms with queen or king bed, which also remain a tad small. Rollaway beds are not available, but cribs are. Families would do best to select a premium room with two double beds or a mini suite with one king or two double beds with sleeper sofa. Although the mini suites was smaller than a traditional suite in hotel rooms, the sitting room was plenty comfortable with a loveseat, chair and desk area. The bedroom's two double beds were comfortable for the kids (although a but tight for my height). The bathroom's rain shower was a surprise and a treat.

All rooms feature DVD players (in our suite we had two DVDs, one with each TV) with a complimentary limited selection of DVDs available at the front desk. Rooms also feature free Internet service. Mini fridges are provided, but call down to the front desk to order drinks typically stocked in a mini bar (for the same crazy prices).
