Hivernage Hotel & Spa

Av. Echouhada, at Rue des Temples, Marrakesh, Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, Morocco

This recently renovated property nestled among the golden triangle of large hotels has a touch more class than the local giants that cater to a mass market, with great spa facilities, terrific food, and a hipster vibe, but since its acquisition by the Warwick International Hotel chain it has lost its polish. Rooms are more boutique than brash, incorporating Moroccan design with African and Art Deco flourishes. The excellent restaurant, La Table du Marché, is under the aegis of Christophe Leroy, chef to the French jet set on the Côte d'Azur. If your wallet is up to it, request a junior suite for the pool view through a wonderful bay window. Other rooms, from the third floor, have views out to the Koutoubia or the Atlas Mountains on the horizon. The seventh-floor bar is a real treat for sunset views and a chilled cocktail. The outdoor pool area is small and hemmed in by a high wall. Not all rooms are nonsmoking.
