Heading to Morocco in October 2011. Fez, hiking in the High Atlas, desert adventure, and Marrakesch. Any suggestions for places to stay, eat, or visit? Unique, off the beaten path, suprising? And stops along the routes between these places.

Chefchaouen! Best part of my trip to Morocco. Three hours north of Fez, which was also awesome. I felt that Marrakesh was overrun and had seen better days. But if you do go here's a great article with places to check out: http://www.budgettravel.com/feature/my-marrakech-is-better-than-yours,2812/

I second Chefchaouen! I stayed at Dar Meziana http://www.darmezianahotel.com/ which was beautiful, and (I thought) a great deal. I hired a guide to take me hiking up in the mountains, which meant I got six hours to ask all the questions I wanted. Invaluable. I also paid to have a private hamam (bath) in the hotel. It's not the real communal experience, but it was luscious.
