Fodor's Expert Review L'Hotel

41, Derb Sidi Lahcen ou Ali, Marrakesh, Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, Morocco

Celebrated British designer, Jasper Conran, opened this hotel, his first in Marrakesh, in 2016. The riad is set within a former 19th century Ciadal palace and has five spacious suites around a lush central patio, with a small swimming pool. The property is decorated with antiques and artworks from the owner's private collection and, as would be expected, there is great attention to detail in the interior finishes and furnishings. The ambience is that of a stylish and elegant retreat within the medina where peace and tranquility reign supreme–-to this end there are no TVs and children are not accepted. Four-poster beds are made up with hand-finished Egyptian cotton linen surrounded by billowing white voile drapes. While all suites overlook the garden courtyard, request one with a private balcony or terrace. The on-site restaurant serves Moroccan cuisine either in the elegant dining room or on your own private terrace. The sun-drenched roof terrace is ideal for afternoon tea or sunset cocktails.
