Hotels in Fez range from the luxurious and the contemporary to more personal, atmospheric riads that offer everything from an Arabian Nights fantasy to authentic traditional living, and more upscale but still boutique versions, such as Palais Amani. Hotels in or near the Fez el-Bali are best, as the medina is probably what you came to see. In Meknès, there is a more limited choice, with a few gems competing at the top end. In the Middle Atlas, the resort of Michlifen Ifrane Suites and Spa draws local elite for its Anglo-European styling. The Middle Atlas offers a selection of good hotels. Some of the inns and auberges off the beaten path should be thought of as shelter rather than full-service hotels, as lodging tends to be unmemorable.
