Hospitality chain AccorHotels has completed the interim rebranding of a landmark hotel in Jordan to Le Grand Amman.
The property, which features 298-rooms and 67 serviced apartments, will be undergoing a refurbishment while operating as Le Grand Amman before making its final transition to the Sofitel brand, said a report in Saudi Gazette.
Located in close proximity to the upcoming Abdali Downtown Project, a state-of-the-art development that is set to become Amman’s premiere leisure, tourism and business hub, the property will cater to the growing number of corporate visitors to the region.
The first phase of the refurbishment of the soon-to-be Sofitel Amman is scheduled to conclude in 2019.
Sami Nasser, chief operating officer, luxury brands, Middle East, AccorHotels, said, “This opening signifies the strategic expansion of our luxury portfolio in Jordan. While this property will be operated as Le Grand Amman — managed by AccorHotels, we are delighted to announce that it will transition into Sofitel, making way for the entry of one of our most prolific luxury brands in Jordan.”
The hotel also features two specialty restaurants, an all-day dining restaurant, a lobby lounge and bar, along with a pool bar. Guests can enjoy the spa or focus on wellness through the health club, indoor and outdoor pools. Business travellers also have access to eight meeting rooms in addition to the largest ballroom in Amman for large-scale events and family occasions.
