We stayed at the Yacout in the medina of Fes, and this is a phenomenal hotel. Around 660 years old, the riad features stunning architecture, terrific rooms, and wonderful food. But the highlight is the service - Griselda (sorry if I'm misspelling her name) and her staff go out of their way in making sure that each guest is taken care of like family. Its location in the medina makes it very convenient as well - e.g., you can have your rug delivered to the riad instead of lugging it around with you as you explore the medina. One of the finest hotels that I have ever stayed in - comparable to the historic palace hotels in India, and the historic hotels in Southeast Asia.
