Tourist friendly town on the way to Fes

I don't want to take a 7 hour train ride from Marrakech to Fez, so is there a town that I can stop somewhere on the way for a day to explore and stay overnight, and then go to Fez?

All by train. It can be a relaxing beautiful town or culture rich.

Thank you

The rail network is limited in Morocco and trains from Marrakech to Fez go via Casablanca, Rabat and Khenitra.

Rabat would be my choice, see http://looklex.com/morocco/rabat.htm

I have to admit I've never stopped at Khenitra.

However, to continue to answer the OP, one option is to take the train to John's home town of El Jadida, which I revisited earlier this year. I loved it, see http://looklex.com/morocco/jadida.htm

Zero hassle, lots of interesting places to see including the Portugese ramparts and water cistern.
