Hotel Check-In: Hyatt Regency Casablanca

Mention Casablanca to anyone and their thoughts turn to the movie, romantic scenes of an exotic city and Moroccan art and culture. In reality, a lot of Casablanca is like any international city, it’s large, busy and less magical than one would think. But Morocco is a great destination and Casablanca is almost certainly going to be your jumping on and off point, so why not start and probably end your trip on a high note? That’s where the Hyatt Regency Casablanca comes in, it’s definitely a high note.

The Hyatt Regency Casablanca is perfectly located near the Old Medina (though in reality it isn’t that old, unlike the Medina in Fez), the Habous Quarter (a fun place to shop) and the magnificent Hassan II Mosque. It’s a hotel equally suited to business or leisure guests.

On this trip we were upgraded to a Regency Suite which is a 74-square-meter, king-bed suite with views of the Old Medina and the Hassan II Mosque.

It featured a generous sitting area, with a workspace, a second 2-piece bathroom and a small bar/coffee area.

The bedroom featured a very comfortable king bed, a desk, large closets and a marble bathroom with a separate tub and shower.

The property has a small but very well staffed and helpful Regency Club lounge as well as a french bistro called Cafe M, Dar Beida which is a well loved Moroccan restaurant with a large local clientele, Bissat for breakfast and the Living Room for casual snacks and drinks. It also has a lounge in the lobby called the Black House Discotheque.

We arrived quite early at the property after a long haul flight and were very thankful that the front of house staff and management team had already noted our early arrival and as Globalists had set aside a suite. The room wasn’t quite ready (hey it was 10:00 am) so they invited us to have breakfast in the lounge while housekeeping finished up. This was very much appreciated and this kind of thoughtful service is one reason why guests stay loyal to Hyatt.

The Hyatt Regency Casablanca is a large, modern hotel in the center of the city with a professional, motivated staff. Really what more could anyone wan?. We recommend the Hyatt Regency Casablanca and think it’s the ideal place to start or end your trip to Morocco.
