This ideally located 233-room landmark hotel with pink-quartz exteriors is popular with diplomats and visiting dignitaries. The property is set in a parklike landscape overlooking the ramparts of the Old City and is a 15-minute walk from major historic sites and the modern city’s center. Lavishly decorated public areas feature high ceilings, rich wood paneling, elegant draperies and velvet couches. Preferred rooms, most with private verandas, face the Old City and gardens, and some offer Jacuzzi tubs and sitting areas. Dining options include La Regence for a creative, seasonal menu and King’s Garden Restaurant for traditional Mediterranean dishes and lovely views of the gardens and the huge outdoor pool. For drinks, the atmospheric Oriental Bar is enjoyable. A gym, a spa and a tennis court enhance the hotel’s resortlike ambiance.
