My wife and I stayed at Palais Faraj for five nights during a three-week long tour of Morocco. It is a brand new, 25 unit luxury hotel just outside the southern walls of the Fez medina. Extraordinarily beautiful in design, it has suites that are so spacious and beautiful that you think you are staying in a Moroccan palace. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms spacious and modern. (Of course, like every bathroom in Morocco, you cannot shower without flooding the entire bathroom floor. I suspect that hotel architects in this country all got their start doing farm irrigation.) Not cheap. Good location, within a ten minute walk of the middle of the medina. There is a restaurant and bar with a view over the medina and a large and mostly underutilized swimming pool. Beautiful lobby and library. The restaurant has some interesting and excellently prepared Moroccan food at moderate to high prices. Breakfast was less interesting though enthusiastically served by the staff. The owner lives there and takes a day-to-day interest in the hotel and its guests. The staff are overall very helpful. When you need some shelter from the hurly burly world of urban Morocco and you are inclined to spoil yourself, this is the place.
