While it isn’t a big hot spot for tourists like Marrakech and Fes, Casablanca is the premiere economic and financial hub of Morocco, bustling at all hours of the day. International business travelers heading to the country will likely find themselves here at some point as several key banks and industry headquarters are in the city, mostly in the downtown and surrounding area. These business hotels are the finest the city has the offer and have all the modern conveniences you’d expect.
The Hyatt Regency Casablanca is one of those hotels that seamlessly blends luxury and business amenities together to satisfy a diverse crowd. And if you’re looking for something near downtown, it would be hard to pick a better location, as it’s literally right across the street from the heart of the city and transit connections. Most of the 255 rooms at the hotel come with fantastic views of the busy downtown and United Nations Square. Other amenities suited to the business traveler include limousine service, upscale meeting rooms, speedy internet and a selection of fantastic bars and restaurants to entertain clients.
Atlas Sky Airport
If you’re making a bunch of airline connections or just in town for a day, it makes sense to stay close to the airport. One of the best options for that in Casablanca is the Atlas Sky Airport. This hotel offers nicely sized rooms and suites, several meeting rooms, a private VIP lounge, and a great spa to relax after your day is over. Several restaurants are also onsite for entertaining clients, including an all day lunch buffet to grab and go if you’re in a hurry. In addition, there is a convenient and free shuttle airport that leaves every 15 minutes.
Kenzi Tower Hotel
To treat yourself to luxurious surroundings with the best view in the city, go for the Kenzi Tower Hotel. It’s a bit away from the main business areas, but being a few minutes away gets you a top notch place to rest your head. Most rooms have great views, and you can also head up to the incredible Sens restaurant on the 27th floor or the even higher Sky 28 lounge to entertain guests. With business travelers in mind, the hotel offers a large conference center and eight meeting rooms with capacities ranging from 10 to 300 people. All of the rooms can be adjusted by staff for private and company events.
Sofitel Casablanca Tour Blanche
For something just a bit more trendy, it’s hard to go wrong with Sofitel’s Casablanca offering, the Casablanca Tour Blanche. This hotel is not short on amenities, and the first four floors are all dedicated to services that will delight any business traveler. It features five meeting rooms, two restaurants, a bar, a spa spanning two floors and a penthouse for special occasions. The location is also great, and the 171 rooms (most with incredible views) will have you staying in style.
Mövenpick Hotel Casablanca
Yet another splendid choice is the Mövenpick Hotel Casablanca, centrally located in the business district and convenient to other sites around the city. The rooms are tastefully designed and all come with a large business desk and complimentary WiFi. Large conference rooms and meeting spaces can hold up to 400 people for any big event.
