We were slightly worried about staying at the Novotel Suites because of some of the poor reviews on TripAdvisor but found the hotel was a lot better than expected.
The Hotel had arranged for us ( group of three couples) to have three rooms adjacent to each other and all were similar. Two had a balcony and unfortunately we got the short straw without a balcony.
The rooms were very large and well arranged. The slightly unusual arrangement with the toilet separate from the Bathroom was a bonus, and the room was of a good size. There was a large, comfy, double bed, and a separate single bed against the wall which proved very handy for our suitcases. There were two chairs and a curved table that made a good sitting area.
The TV was on its own base and could be wheeled around so you could either see it in bed, or from the sitting area. The free videos on demand were a bonus whilst the tv also had 50 channels: however these were very international! The TV also could be used for internet access, and had a separate keyboard/mouse pad. It was one of the best computers we had seen in a hotel room, although it struggled with the BA.com page due the graphics. Other pages loaded easily and quickly. The Wifi also worked well throughout most of the hotel.
Breakfast was reasonable, although as others have mentioned there are not quite enough tables unless you go outside, which is a bit chilly this time of year. However we only had to wait a couple of minutes before empty tables appeared inside.
You have to fill in a form at Check in which is a bit of a pain, but presumably this is the same for all the Marrakech hotels.
We traveled around very easily as a group of 6 using the horse drawn Caliches , and always paid 100Dirhams (8GBP) for a trip to town centre etc. The drivers would sometimes ask for more, but simply by walking away we would get the 100 rate. This may be more than the published rates, but we felt it was great value for an enjoyable ride.
The hotel was not perfect, but we felt it was very good value for money, and we had no complaints.
