This is a very well kept hotel that had once been the mansion to the King's translator; the grounds are spotless with many quiet places to hang out. The staff was discreet but welcoming. They do not cater to any one nation so be prepared for a lack of English reading material. Breakfast was elegant and simple but very well done. My wife and I were here as part of a side excursion from a cruise, so we had a guide, which was good because this place would have been hard to find on our own. Tip-- if you like taking pictures, wake up in the early morning and walk the alleyways, the light is wonderful. Our tour package was from Ya'lla Tours USA, I really recommend them, but make sure you establish in advance what you want tot do (scenery, museums, etc). Enjoy Marrakech, it's a gem; Casablanca is larger and noisy.
