There was a lot to like about this hotel. It was clean and fairly modern. The rooms were a good size and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast buffet was fine, although the service in the restaurant was always a little off. It took a while to get anyone's attention and then a long time to get what you requested. Lunch and dinner were fine as well, but I thought the prices were a little high for what you got. The pool area looked very nice, even though I never had a chance to use it. The gym was very basic - a few treadmills, machines and free weights. The jacuzzi was "under renovation" when I was there, but I got the sense it had been like that for a while.
Housekeeping was friendly, if a little clumsy. I was jet-lagged and in desperate need of a lunchtime nap between meetings. I told him not to clean the room. He said he would just wash the glasses. When I returned five minutes later, he had somehow managed to break the curtain rod, so that took another 30 minutes for someone to come and fix it. Needless to say, I didn't get my nap.
As far as the location, the neighborhood seemed to be in transition. There was either a lot of buildings going up or coming down, and several empty, overgrown lots. There was absolutely nothing to see in the immediate vicinity, although there was a huge, very nice traditional restaurant just down the street and then a main commercial street not much further. Amman is not particularly pedestrian friendly - there are barely any sidewalks and the overpasses to cross the street are far apart. The commercial street had some popular sweets, nuts and coffee shops. Within the hotel, there is a gift shop and barber shop.
Overall, this is a good, moderate-priced business hotel. We had a three-day meeting here and everyone was friendly and helpful. If you're looking for more interesting or nicer surroundings, I'd stay elsewhere, but otherwise it's totally acceptable.
