Top Cities in Morocco

Morocco Hotel Guide

Morocco offers an abundance of attractions nestled between both Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines. It's a land of contrasts, with the sprawling Atlas mountains sprinkled with snow-capped peaks and the exotic Malabata Coast in Tangier, once an ancient Phoenician trading post. Hints of these contrasts abound in a country with both modern cities lined with skyscrapers and small villages little changed since ancient times.

Morocco hotel deals can usually be found for mid-summer dates, since most European tourists visit in early spring and late autumn, although there really is no official off-season time here. Weather conditions are generally stable in the main tourist destinations, with the exception being higher regions characterized by periods of snow, which makes for a great ski vacation.

As an incentive to bring friends, some hotel reservations can be had for reduced rates for larger groups, while other hotels target business travellers with incentives. During the low season in November, expect discount rates on hotel accommodations and greater access to sites normally flooded with tourists. Some Morocco resorts also offer special packages and deals that include spa treatments and other amenities. You can still find a cheap Morocco hotel deal without sacrificing quality in more elite cities like Casablanca.

Tangier and Marrakech feature many African cultural influences. Whether you want to literally rock the Kasbah with party-hardy locals, explore the country's ancient past, or sample some classic Moroccan dishes like ferakh maamer or kefta, you will find plenty of appealing special deals. Several local merchants are more than willing to offer great deals on leather goods, jewelry, pottery, ceramics, and exotic carpet designs unique to this part of the world.

Many Morocco hotels are within easy driving or walking distance of attractions as vastly different as the impressive architectural displays found at the Marrakesh railway station and the old defense walls of Essaouira. Morocco hotel packages often include day trips to various cities along with time to shop and take in sights, such as the Koutoubia Mosque.

Ancient Roman and Islamic sites are popular tourist destinations not far from many of the top hotels in Morocco. Marrakech, located in central Morocco, is a common one-to-two day trip. Cheap hotel deals in Morocco rarely sacrifice on quality. In fact, some of the best rooms can be had for reasonable prices when you either book in advance or search for cancellations.
