Hotel in NY: Casablanca or The Benjamin ?

My family and I are going to NY for a 3 nights stay in February 2020, and Im wondering which of those hotels should we take:
The Benjamin
Casablanca (Library Hotel Collection)
We got good rates for both of them and we dont know which reservation to keep, reviews look great for both.

Both are close, and both offer a one-bedroom suite for my family of 4, including my 2 sons of 18 and 16 years old.
Customer service is important to us and location (however, both seem to be very centric), as well as comfort.

Which one would you choose for us?

Thanks in advance for your replies!
And happy belated Thanksgiving

Would you mind listing the addresses of both? I live here but am not so knowledgeable about hotels, although I can give an opinion on location.

Also, where do you want to go while you are here? There is midtown, but I am not sure if I would call that the center any longer. There are so many attractions in other areas as well, so it depends on what you want to see in the very short time you will be here (two full days only).

"Both are close"
They are a mile apart.
I'd pick the Casablanca, mainly because of the location. It's close to Bryant Park and IMO it's easier to be on the western side if you want more subway options. The reviews on TA are outstanding.
