I’ve been to many, many cool hotels over the years. For me, half the fun of traveling is the hotel. I’d rather not travel if the only option is a cheesy, cookie-cutter, chain hotel. When I’m planning a trip, I spend hours combing travel websites, looking at hotel photos, and reading reviews. I fell upon this gem on Mr. and Mrs. Smith and it was love at first sight. My experience there definitely did not disappoint. The Fellah Hotel, located a little outside of the city center, is like a little bohemian hideaway in the desert. The hotel staff, mostly locals, make you feel like family and are incredibly accommodating. I split my time in Marrakech between two hotels, because I knew once I arrived at the Fellah, I wanted to relax on the grounds rather than running off to explore other parts of the city. There are plenty of day trips and excursions, but staying at the hotel is an easy option as well, as the hotel has a library, a gym where you can take boxing lessons, a spa, and a center where you can learn to cook. I mostly enjoyed my time lounging by the pool with a good book in hand. It was truly a unique and enjoyable experience.
