Why Stay At L Mansion
Unless you are staying with the king himself, you'd be hard put to find a more exclusive address in Morocco.
It took more than a quarter of a century for general manager Lamya El Manjra's father to build the Marrakesh palace that is L Mansion, a seven-room hotel that was originally conceived as a private desert retreat for Manjra's family. Located on several acres of cypress and citrus and roses, the place is styled after the fabled Alhambra in southern Spain. But whereas that monument has been stripped bare by the ages, L Mansion's opulence is striking without being gaudy. Gilded mosaic walls and ceilings, bronze statues, antique chandeliers, Iraqi stained-glass windows, Arabic arches, French objets d'art, and Berber furnishings expertly blend different cultures into one seamless Moroccan experience. It's more like staying at a museum than a hotel, but thankfully, the lavish-yet-comfortable rooms (all furnished with modern amenities) are serviced by a 24-hour staff. Visit Property Website
Families should look into the hotel's three executive apartments, each with two separate bedrooms connected by a shared bath.
Spring and fall are the best seasons for a visit to Marrakesh. Avoid the desert heat in summer and the chilly winter evenings.
Arrive at Marrakeck's Menara Airport (RAK), which is approximately 6 miles (10 kilometers) from the hotel. Anticipate about 15 minutes of travel time.Route de Ouarzazate Km 9, Marrakech, Marrakech, Morocco

Why We Love Marrakech
Morocco's "Jewel of the South," the bustling city of Marrakech invites an intriguing and invigorating adventure of vibrant color, bustling bazaars, and a breath-taking blend of tradition and modernity.
Things To Do:
Garden Tour: Majorelle Gardens were once owned by Yves Saint Laurent (whose mansion overlooks the grounds), but they date back even further, to the 1920s. Don't miss the small but impressive museum of Islamic art on the property. 011-212-0524-313047; $5 admission. Read More
Top Restaurant: Open one of the large wooden doors down any number of Marrakesh's dark alleys, and you'll probably find one of the city's extraordinary "palace restaurants." Inside Stylia Restaurant, opulent fountains, carved balconies, and white-gloved waiters await. The five-course prix fixe Moroccan meals are delicious. 011-212-0244-40505; $50 per person for prix fixe dinner without wine. Read More
Best Cocktail Spot: Morocco's landmark hotel La Mamounia is a famous Art Deco gem. Twelfth-century ocher-colored walls encircle the property's rose gardens, where Winston Churchill often painted watercolors. In his honor, sip a whiskey highball (his favorite drink) at the hotel's dark and moody piano lounge, Le Bar Churchill. Cocktails from $12. Read More
