While the Kingdom is preparing to welcome, for this summer season, Moroccan national tourists and those residing abroad, the hotel sector in Morocco adheres to measures intended to support MRE. Thus, the National Confederation of Tourism (CNT) announced on Wednesday an “additional reduction of 30% for the prices of overnight stays in hotels” for Moroccans around the world.
"A reduction in addition to a series of measures already taken by hotels for this category representing more than 50% of visitors to the kingdom, with 6 million tourists in 2019, or 45% of turnover in the sector", recalls 2M, adding that spending by MRE during the summer season is around 27 billion dirhams.
"We have held meetings with hotel owners to adopt affordable prices," Faouzi Zemrani, CNT vice-president, told the channel. "We took into consideration the fact that these Moroccans have not visited the Kingdom and their families for two years," he adds.
"We have therefore decided to adopt new prices. Thus, they will drop by 30% in hotels, compared to those on reservation platforms, for all classified hotels. We will generalize this unanimous measure. "
The manager asked the MRE to "leave a little time" for hotel operators to "prepare these offers and meet all expectations". As for internal tourists, he affirmed that "these prices will be offered to all Moroccans without distinction".
One of the first hotel chains to react to high royal instructions, the Accor group announced on Wednesday the establishment of a system offering MRE a 30% discount on its public rates, free breakfast as well as the free in room for a child. A promotion which concerns "all the brands of the group and all the cities in Morocco: Fairmont, Sofitel, MGallery, Pullman, Movenpick, Mercure, Novotel, ibis and ibis budget" and which is available for stays until September 15, 2021 in booking via the All.accor.com platform or by contacting the hotel directly no later than 24 hours before the start of the stay.
