American $$ in Marrakesh?

The guide we've hired for trip in Oct. wants to be paid in American dollars. Does this mean shopkeepers, taxis, etc. would take Amer. dollars in Marrakesh?

We just got back from a short trip to Marrakech. We didn't see any places that accepted US dollars. Euros were accepted in a few places (restaurants, shops) but we paid for everything in dirhams. Make sure you have small change for taxis.
We got cash as needed from ATMs.

Your guide isn't that silly. He doesn't like banks to make any benefit with him when changing $ to dirmams. May be he'll use them himself abroad.
