Very nice hotel with excellent staff. I arrived late evening and my check-in was less than 5 minutes to a non-smoking room. Hotel is not all non-smoking but that is ok understanding different country different culture so you must request a non-smoking room. Room was VERY clean, bed was firm and comfortable, and bathroom was a nice size considering most in middle east are pretty small. I enjoyed the breakfast (buffet style) because was a nice variety of dishes. I did not check out the pool and spa area but the food ordered for room service was good. November is a good time to travel to this area weather is nice not hot but not cold yet either may need light sweater or jacket for nights or early mornings but it feels good once sun comes out.
Smoking is encouraged everywhere in this hotel including in lobby, restaurants and ALL public areas. Worst of all smoke fumes circulate in the old AC system even non-smoking rooms absolutely sting of smoke smell. They use a pungent chemical air freshers to try and drain smoke smell to no avail. Complained to manager and staff who are useless and could not care less. PLEASE avoid this hotel if you don't want to passively smoke ALL of the time! Extremely unhealthy and unpleasant. Otherwise it is old, dilapidated, furniture and carpets full of stains. On a positive note the watering staff are very pleasant and hard-working.
I have spent 2 nights here, the hotel is among the oldest in Amman, yet it's well maintained and there is touch of elegancy in many areas. Very clean rooms, the appliances is old. The staff is very welcoming and very professional, I intent to remember Mr Amr on the reception. The most frustrated there is the internet, the speed is very slow and coverage is very bad. Overall it's very good hotel and money valued.
Well located hotel, close to the business areas. Also close to the area where there are plenty of good fine dining restaurants. It seems like the hotel has been around for a while and its decor appears a bit old-fashioned, but everything is quite well maintained and spick-and-span. Special mention for the staff who are genuinely welcoming and the warm smile never leaves their faces.
This was the first hotel I’ve visited that had security screening and barricades out front so I was admittedly nervous upon initial approach. However once inside, the staff and security couldn’t have been nicer. They were genuinely interested to know about me, and efficient and helpful. Everything you’d want in a hotel. Turns out the hotel was surprisingly large and well appointed. My room was large, clean and comfortable. The hotel lobby massive and stunning. Marble floors and ornate features adorned the place. Breakfast was especially memorable, with fresh baked goods, a huge buffet and tons of local authentic foods to sample. Service there, too, was excellent. If I ever return to Amman, I wouldn’t hesitate to return to the Le Meridien.
I stayed here when I was working with the Department of State. We had a 4 day layover and had to stay here. Beautiful hotel.. was very helpful in setting up a few of us with a driver to Petra. I recommend the 282 Steaks Lounge for a great steak and drinks.
The hotel was decent enough but seems to be showing its age. We stayed here on two occasions, once in a Club level room and once in a standard- if we did it again we would probably stay in the standard room as while the Club lounge was fine it didn't seem to be worth the added cost.
Needs a renovation! The Meridien is in a good location in Amman - close to almost everything - particularly the new Abdali boulevard development. Rooms are large and clean. And the staff is efficient and competent. But everything appears dated. The dark lobby is uninviting. Several restaurants are set in the basement without natural light. Furniture in the rooms is probably several decades old by now. Beds are excessively worn. The façade nees to be cleaned. Wireless internet only works intermittently - and this seems to be a known problem as the staff responded quickly and set up an additional wireless router in the room. Also, be aware that the price you're quoted on booking sites is not the final price - you need to read the fine print. The hotel adds a 16% tax and 10% service charge - making the rooms considerably more expensive than they appear. Unless you're tied to Starwood, you'll find better, fresher options in Amman at this price point.
Me and my friend were thinking to go and try the Japanese food in le meridien(Benihana) on her birthday and we actually did. We were amazed by the hospitality of the staffs both waitresses and chefs..As we sit down,one of the chefs greeted us with her great smile and her name was Jennifer.We ordered 1 samurai and chicken and beef..Thank you so much for our chef that time(chef Jennifer)the food was great and amazing!The show is fantastic!job well done.thank you!
Rooms are a good size, good breakfast, and good pool / sauna facilities. Location is excellent. You are a 5-7 minute walk to the area they call the strip which is full of bar and restaurants. The Abdali mall / shops restaurants a 15 minute walk.
