We spent a week in Marrakech in December 2013. It was an absolutely amazing experience. We arrived in Casablanca on a flight from New York and did a one day tour with in our layover. We arrived in Marrakech at night and were greeted by a taxi sent by the hotel. We were amazed from the time we pulled up to the hotel until we left. It is absolutely stunning. Our room was spacious with a beautiful view. The hotel itself is very beautiful. The restaurant is amazing. I miss having breakfast there. Sophia was of great help. Through here guidance we were able to visit Essouaria, and Orkut. We spent many days at the Medina, which is just a short taxi ride away. Definitely take advantage of the Hammam and massage---wonderful experience.
