3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2009

It's a shame about this hotel because it has a lot going for it. The location to the medina is great and it's walkable to several good cafes and restaurants. The rooms are nice. So is the pool. That's about as far as I can go because the Sofitel Palais Imperial just nickel and dimes you for everything. And then, of course, you have to the tip the concierge or doorman for having just nickel and dimed you. The young women at the reception desk are out and out rude. Then there's the food which is just this side of atrocious. On our next visit we won't be coming back here. There are so many places in Marrakech that we're sure to find something better elsewhere.
