OK we picked this hotel because it was part of a main and popular hotel chain in Morocco. It was only built last october and they are still working on an extension which is 30 yards away linked by a overhead walkway. The location is not too far from the airport. About 20/25 mins away (even less going back to the airport from hotel if you take the airport shuttle bus, as the hotel is towards the end of the bus' route on the return). it's located what I would say northwest of the main city at a distance of about 3.5-4 km. There are 2 well known landmarks nearby; the main railway stn/Garre (the new one) and the theatre royal. The airport shuttle bus does not stop directly outside the hotel but if you arrive late at night like we did and if you ask the nice driver politely he will take a slight diversion of his route to drop you off outside (I was amazed at that!). As for the hotel; clean, modern, huge, nice outdoor swimming pool, hints of traditional moroccan architecture. The room; we had a triple room which was basically a double room but with 3 single beds in it. .That meant that there was limited space to walk around in the room. the room was clean and modern, had a balcony overlooking the pool/patio. Word of warning... the beds are hard and stiff. If you are not used to this then you may not have a good sleep. the shower is of a walk in type. The way the floor is made (slopping the wrong way) meant that the water would come out into the main part of the bathroom. The hotel reception keep the TV remotes with them because they say ppl steal them (can't see why!) you have to ask for it from them and rtn it when you checkout. The A/C is also controlled by remote which they also didn't provide (it was off, but not bothered as temp. was about 18/19 cent in the morning and night). If you get breakfast with your rate then you will not be dissapointed. A good selection of rolls, crossaints, fresh cut fruits, juice's, cut salami, olives etc. The hot food on offer is a flat bread type a bit like a indian paratha (forgot what moroccans call it but it begins with "M"). also there are boiled eggs (not fried) aswell as tea and coffee. Overall it was a pleasant stay and would come again. For convenience there is a fairly large supermarket right next door (but looks as if it is part of the same building) and in the new train station which is less than 10 mins walk away there is a KFC and McDonalds. Should also mention that that the rooms come with a small fridge, so you can buy drinks and water and chill them in your room.
