We only came here for a drink in the panoramic drinks bar on the 28th Floor so we cannot comment upon any other part of the Hotel's operation.
We had just been to the world famous mosque in the city and wanted a high floor photo of it at sunset, which we got on the 28th Floor. The hotel staff did not mind us photographing the mosque and the shaded light at sunset with the sea in the background and city roofscape in the foreground was special.
Now, security is good in the hotel. We went to the concierge desk and asked to go to the drinks bar, which we were permitted to do.
The lift system is unusual. You press the number of the floor ..."27" on the control panel OUTSIDE the lift in the lift lobby then wait for the first lift, which will take you to the 27th Floor. On the 27th there is a nearly vertical water feature, which you do not expect on a high floor. Good thinking by the interior designer. Walk up one floor so I did not see a disabled access although one might be present to the 28th floor. As you can imagine the bar goes around 3 sides of the hotel and the side facing the mosque and sea is the most popular. If you cannot find an appropriate seat then walk around and take your photograph.
A tip for you, the hotel knows the value of the view and we did buy one round of drinks there so they did not mind us taking photographs.. Try to pick the windows which do not have mullions as these impair the view. The cocktails were expensive but it was worth paying for one round just to get the experience. In a hotel of this standard the toilets were acceptable and they are available on the 28th floor.
One warning, our guide had his own car and we drove around for about 20 minutes in this congested part of town until we found a parking space not too far from the hotel. If possible we recommend taking a taxi or walking to the hotel.
I would conjecture that children would not be allowed in the drinks bar and we did not see any.
Be warning the traffic congestion in Casablanca is worse than Istanbul and that is saying something. We found several gridlocked road junctions but fortunately our guide (Costas from Agadir) knew the back streets so we avoided them. Allow extra journey time to reach the hotel.
If you stay at this hotel ask for a view towards the Hassan II mosque/sea.
