Accor opens new hotel in Jordan

Hospitality giant Accor is expanding its portfolio in Jordan with the opening of a new hotel in its capital city Amman.

The 218-key property was acquired by the group and re-branded to Mövenpick Hotel Amman.

Mövenpick Hotel Amman - the Swiss brand’s first property in the capital and its sixth in Jordan – is located in the west of the city, close to the central business district, popular shopping malls and major cultural attractions including the Citadel, Temple of Hercules, Roman Amphitheatre and the Royal Automobile Museum. The Queen Alia International Airport is located just 30 minutes away.

“Raising the first Mövenpick flag in Amman marks a milestone for the brand in the country where its Middle East growth story began and today operates six high-profile properties across Aqaba, Petra and the Dead Sea,” said Michael Nugent, vice president operations - Levant & Pakistan, Accor.

“The new hotel not only complements these popular resorts, but Accor’s three additional properties in the capital, across the Fairmont, Le Grand – soon to be reflagged to Sofitel, and Ibis brands - provides business and leisure travellers with even more choice of quality accommodation options in the capital, from midscale to luxury,” he said.

Mövenpick Hotel Amman features 218 rooms and suites and an extensive range of facilities including four restaurants, seven meeting rooms and a grand ballroom accommodating up to 1,200 people, an outdoor swimming pool, gym, sauna and steam room and an executive floor and lounge.

A highlight of the accommodation offering is the top-floor presidential suite with a balcony featuring a Jacuzzi and stunning city skyline views. Later this year, guests staying at the property can also earn benefits as part of Accor’s loyalty programme. - TradeArabia News Service
