Of course, as everyone is saying, a trip to Morocco wouldn't be complete without an experience in a riad. I found this one to be extremely pleasant in way ranging from the service to the food to the interior. Although this riad in particular was ridiculously difficult for me to locate since I had no concept of how roads and alleyways were laid out on map (Which, just for future reference, the riad is off the main road where you have to walk into an entryway gate, only to walk further down into a bunch of alleyways--so don't expect it to be off some obvious road like I thought), I was greeted by two friendly, young people and immediately given mint tea and sweets. The owner (I assume) was incredibly kind, willing to sit down with me and a map to circle all the main attractions in the area.
Aside from the service, the room was clean and comfortable. Definitely had a Moroccan feel to it with the elaborate tiling and openess. I would warn people who are sharing a room as friends that the bathrooms aren't separate from the room though, so I'm sure that could be uncomfortable for some. I also ended up having dinner in the riad and it was abundant and delicious, including 4 or 5 courses.
As a single traveler, I was really hoping to meet with others sharing the riad, but it seemed very quiet that day. Nonetheless, the riad gives you a peace-and-quiet feel from the business of the Medina.
