The El Minzah Hotel Tangier (Le Royal Hotels & Resorts) opened its doors in 1930 at the command of John Crichton-Stuart, the 4th Marquis of Bute, a British aristocrat with extensive interests in the area. This historical property is considered one of the most prestigious hotels in North Africa. It has been a favorite of many dignitaries, politicians and Hollywood stars such as HRH the Comte de Paris, Sir Rex Harrison, Rita Hayworth, Rock Hudson, Jean Claude Van Damme, Jacques Cousteau and many others.
El Minzah's architecture, fountains and orange trees create a charming atmosphere day and night. Today, El Minzah Hotel Tangier will take you into the mysterious delight of Morocco with its five star service and exquisite gastronomy. True Arabesque woodwork, oriental carpets and arched doorways greet you around the lobby area, where you can enjoy traditional Moroccan tea and perhaps some almond sweets. Many parts of the property afford a stunning view of the bay of Tangiers and its busy port (now a marina). The Andalusian patio forms the heart of the hotel, with a magnificently carved sandstone portal, iron studded wooden doors and old world charm. This patio is exceptionally beautiful, offering alfresco dining options in the morning as well as in the evening. Comfortable bedrooms in a serene setting distinguish El Minzah Hotel Tangier as a five-star property with all the amenities of its class, along with an Andalusian touch.
