If you decide to stay in the Medina (that is, inside the walls of the old city), I recommend this gem of a hotel that provides a peaceful, luxurious oasis that is still close to the action. The moment you check in you're served traditional mint tea with an assortment of bite-sized pastries, and welcomed in the most genuine display of hospitality that you feel like an honored guest. The hotel is stunningly beautiful, authentic and cozy, complete with open-air, indoor courtyards, a lovely swimming pool, and a rooftop terrace where they serve breakfast. The service is outstanding - the entire staff warmly sees to all your needs, and helps set up outside excursions for you if you wish.
My husband and I stayed in the Senior Sultan Suite, on the first floor overlooking the main courtyard. It had a modern bathroom with all the conveniences a Westerner could wish for (even a hairdryer), and a beautifully decorated sitting room where a bottle of cold water and a tray of fresh fruit is provided upon your arrival. The suite also comes equipped with an air conditioner.
With a complimentary ride to and from the airport, it helped me feel safer in my first moments in Marrakech, and it's one less detail you have to worry about.
