Hotel of the week: La Mamounia, Marrakesh, Morocco

The former palace was a wedding gift to a 19th-century prince before being converted to a grand hotel.

Morocco’s legendary La Mamounia has been “restored to its 1920s elegance,” said National Geographic Traveler. Situated in Marrakesh’s medina, the former palace was a wedding gift to a 19th-century prince before being converted, in 1923, to a grand hotel that soon lured Winston Churchill and other notables. A $180 million renovation has just been finished. The redesign plays with light and shade, so that “sensual, plum-colored spaces lead to bright-tiled courtyards.” It also highlights new attractions, including swimming pools and a large spa.
