These Casablanca hotels feature facilities for travelers in town on business, like conference centers, concierge services, and free Wi-Fi.
Opened in 2012, the trendy Sofitel Casablanca Tour Blanche has a central location a two-minute walk from Casa Port railway station and a 10-minute walk from the Old Medina. While not quite the five-pearl luxury property it bills itself as, the four-and-a-half pearl Sofitel does feature a full-service spa, indoor splash pool, hammam steam room, hot tub, and two restaurants. The 171 contemporary rooms feature comfy beds, Bose audio systems, and flat-screen TVs. The hotel also has a business center, meeting rooms, art gallery, dedicated concierge, bell service, free self-parking, and valet parking for an additional charge. Wi-Fi is free throughout. It's worth comparing Sofitel against the nearby Hyatt Regency Casablanca, which has comparable facilities and rates.
The 255-room Hyatt Regency Casablanca is an upscale, contemporary hotel in Casablanca's city center near the Old Medina. It offers a wealth of leisure and business facilities, including a large conference center, a business center, car rental, an excellent 60-foot pool, and a 24-hour fitness center. Also on-site are several quality restaurants and bars, including a French brasserie, Moroccan restaurant with belly dancing, and a nightclub. Limo service, bell service, and concierge services are all available. All rooms come with desks, in-room safes with electric plugs for laptops, minibars, free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, and flat-screen TVs with satellite channels. Regency Club Rooms include access to a private lounge with business center and free continental breakfast, but they cost more. Prices are fairly expensive but the hotel is newer, better built, and in better condition than many other Casablanca hotels of its class. Guests may also want to consider Sofitel Casablanca Tour Blanche, where rates can be lower, features are similar, and standard rooms are a bit less spartan.
Drawing prestigious executives, diplomats, and even royalty, Kenzi Tower Hotel offers modern luxury in a downtown skyscraper hotel with unobstructed views. Everything from the service to the state-of-the-art tech is flawlessly top-notch. Panoramic views can be enjoyed from both of the hotel's restaurants and bar (all with outdoor terraces) and the 237 rooms. Larger Suites are staggeringly huge, but even entry-level rooms have chic Italian decor, huge flat-screen TVs and Nespresso machines (fee for pods). There's a luxurious spa with sauna and steam room, and an indoor pool with a whirlpool and fitness center (not 24 hours). The concierge can arrange limousine services and the hotel has one of the largest conference venues in the region. Though decadent, rooms can be noisy from the traffic-packed streets below and restaurant prices are steep. Compare rates with Hyatt Regency, which has an outdoor pool and a 24-hour fitness center.
Hotel & Spa Le Doge is housed in an elegant white mansion built in the 1930s. Re-opened in 2010 as a hotel, the property feels like a gracious home. The luxury hotel is filled with authentic Art Deco furniture and objects, and has 16 rooms named for 1920s and '30s cultural icons like Coco Chanel and Charlie Chaplin. Rooms feature plush beds, minibars, Nespresso coffee machines, iPod docks, and flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, while the property includes a hammam steam room, sauna, hot tub, full-service spa, and fine French restaurant. The hotel also has a meeting room, business center, concierge service, bell service, and fifth-floor terrace with garden and view of Ligue Arab Park. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel and private car services can be arranged. For a higher price tag, the significantly larger Sofitel Casablanca Tour Blanche has more amenities with a similar central location.
The 184-room Moevenpick Hotel Casablanca is an upscale property with competitive rates and a central location in the business district. This location is particularly convenient for business travelers, as there is a high concentration of corporate offices and restaurants around. The hotel’s rooftop area is packed with great amenities, including a small but lovely pool, a bar with a sushi menu, a fitness center, and a spa. The main restaurant serves Moroccan and international cuisine in a stylish dining room with a black and white color scheme, and XO Lounge has live music several times a week. Spacious rooms feature contemporary decor in a black, white, and red color palette and offer minibars and free Wi-Fi (though some complain of spotty service). Guests should note that lower-floor units may get traffic noise. Travelers seeking something closer to the Old Medina might want to consider the Hyatt Regency Casablanca or the Sofitel Casablanca Tour Blanche.
Set on landscaped grounds 150 feet from the beach, Club Val d'Anfa Hotel is located in Casablanca's vibrant La Corniche area, with its restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. While not a truly upscale property like our first five picks, this upper-middle-range hotel has a distinctive Moroccan character throughout its interiors. Housed in two modern buildings, the 137 rooms feature flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi, and some rooms have ocean views. An outdoor freeform pool, massage treatments (for a fee), a sauna, Turkish steam rooms, several restaurants, and a nightclub with belly dancing add a resort vibe here. The hotel has bell staff, concierge services, on-site shops, a business center, and meeting rooms with available catering services. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel, though it can be spotty.
The 150-room, upper-middle-range Atlas Sky's proximity to Mohammed V International Airport makes it ideal for layover travelers. While there's little in the way of atmosphere here, decor is a notch above the average airport chain property. A free airport shuttle runs every 30 minutes (five-minute ride), while on-site guests can make use of the outdoor pool, elegant spa facilities, or multiple restaurant and bars. Attractive and contemporary rooms have mini-fridges, flat-screen TVs, and kettles, but guests have reported noise both from planes and adjacent rooms due to thin walls. Another downside is that there's no gym on-site. The hotel shares facilities with the Hotel Relax Airport next door, so it's worth comparing rates.
