Riad Privilege, Marrakesh $$$$
Tel: 212 24 38 73 18
From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
After weaving down a narrow alley in the medina, guests enter Riad Privilege through an unmarked doorway and encounter a sun-filled courtyard worthy of a spread in Architectural Digest. The aesthetic is Milanese instead of the Moorish sensibility of Riad el Fenn and Riad Farnatchi, two nearby competitors. The courtyard's tableau blends white arched walls, a checked-marble floor, lemon and orange trees, a pool flanked by two mirrored obelisks, and plump white couches. Of the five guest rooms, the two courtyard suites offer the most grandeur: 15-foot-high wood-beam ceilings, a mammoth walk-in closet, a wall-mounted retractable screen (which works erratically) for watching DVDs, and a spacious fireplace fronted by Chesterfield-style chairs. What makes the experience most memorable is the affable staff, who won't hesitate to prepare breakfast for you at 4 a.m. if that's your desire.2007 Hot List
