Fodor's Expert Review Opera Plaza Hotel

Av. Mohammed VI and Av. Hassan II, Marrakesh, Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, Morocco

Next to the train station and opposite the Theatre Royal, this modern four-star hotel makes a convenient and well-priced base in the nouvelle ville—even though it's not the most glamorous location—as taxis are on the doorstep for the short skip to the old medina and it's walking distance to the rest of Guéliz. As you enter the airy foyer with marbled floors, low sofas, perfumed air, and contemporary sculptures, the overall feel is of quality and reliability. The Opera Plaza complex includes a bowling alley, nightclub, lounge bar, and Italian restaurant. All rooms face into the center courtyard with its large swimming pool (also shared with the adjacent three-star sister hotel), pool bar, and chill-out zone with sheesha pipes and cushions. Rooms are clean and functional with contemporary Moroccan styling and some ornate features.
