Experience

The name Hyatt certainly needs no introduction in the world of hotels. A far cry from the little motel Hyatt founder Jay Priztker bought in 1957, the Grand Hyatt name represents the standard of luxury hotels. The company prides itself on giving guests the best cuisine, exquisite entertainment and state-of-the-art facilities.

The Grand Hyatt in Amman certainly lives up to its legendary hotel brand. This is a behemoth of a hotel with over 300 rooms, 50 luxury residential apartments, a business center, exhibition center, Club Olympus Spa and 17m indoor/outdoor lap pool.

Staying in a Club Twin Room, we found the set up to be very comfortable. The entrance of the room has a hall way with a door to the bathroom. The main room has a desk and seating area next to the beds. The view out of the window is of the Amman skyline.

The bathroom has a sink and a spacious shower design that encompasses a separate bathtub. The glitzy tile of the toilet section was very attractive.

The room includes your own robe, high speed internet, satellite TV, a minibar, a morning newspaper and individual temperature controls to make sure you mind and body are both at ease.

On the first floor of the hotel is Grand Hyatt’s Club Olympus Spa. Designed to fit the needs of both international travelers and locals, the spa offers state-of-the-art facilities and personal services. After working out guests can move to the saunas and steam rooms to give their muscles a break. Dead Sea mud and salt crystal treatments are also available to give the ultimate relaxing experience to each guest.

In the heart of the hotel is the Zara Gallery. Established in 1999, the gallery presents Jordanian, Arab, and International art. Not only accomplished artists are invited to exhibit their work to visitors but young artists are also featured in the gallery. This is part of the gallery’s focus on generating a cultural and artistic exchange. The hotel also has large conference facilities near the shopping area.

Even more culture and sites can be found outside of the hotel. Just three hours outside of Amman sits one of the most famous historical sites in the world, Petra. Commonly used in movies like Indiana Jones, this famous piece architecture is carved directly into the sandstone walls. Or if nature is more appealing, the Dead Sea isn’t far. Visitors can literally float over the lowest place on earth. The Dead Sea is renowned for the curative qualities of the salts and minerals of the water.

After an exhausting day of sightseeing, guests can choose from seven restaurants and bars in the hotel to indulge their taste buds. The range of food fare varies from the seafood bar at 32° North to fine Italian cuisine at the Grand Hyatt Amman’s signature restaurant L’Incontro. In the summer, The Terrace is a favorite hangout. Sofa seating, soothing water features and majestic landscaping elevate the enjoyment of the cocktail bar and listening to the trendy music.

The Grand Hyatt Amman brings the international standards of luxury to Amman. With excellent restaurants, facilities, rooms and service, it’s no surprise for Grand Hyatt Amman remains one of the best hotels of the city. I would recommend it to anyone traveling in Jordan.
