This is a wonderful international hotel that is definitely a cut above all other hotels we stayed at in Jordan, and was a great bastion of peace and comfort after a long flight from the USA. Front desk service is prompt and professional. Ditto bellhops and doormen. Lobby and public areas are marble-laden, glamorous and well maintained as you would expect in a Four Seasons hotel. Huge bathrooms and our room was enormous. It was fun to watch the continuous parade of high-society gatherings and weddings that were held here.
Our favorite part of the hotel is the magnificent "coffee shop" with a huge breakfast buffet of great quality. Coupled with a lot of Saudi and UAE businessmen going to meetings in their classic dishdashah and thagiyah cap and you know you are in a swanky middle-eastern hotel if you didn't get this feeling walking in downtown Amman.
This is a Four Seasons property. Compared to their other hotels in Istanbul, or Budapest, or Hawaii, etc. this was not absolutely impeccable in comparison, nor give that "one-of-a-kind" ambiance their other properties exude. Our corner room had knock-out views and was immense but the furnishings were sparse and the installed carpeting had a big pucker in it we kept tripping over. There was dust along the walls and under furniture. The remote TV battery was weak and died. The bottled water provided were small, and were not always provided each night without a call. Turn down service did not include a mat laid down on the floor next to the nightstand. Service at breakfast was friendly but disorganized and you wait a long time for that coffee refill. It's not that any of these things are in themselves very important, but one does not get the feeling of trying to go over the top in service here, as we have gotten used to in their other properties.
As with all top hotels in Amman, security is tight. There is both a street gate and a metal-detector you have to go through each time you enter the hotel. Security personnel are incredibly polite given the circumstances.
There is an interesting antique store in their shopping arcade with antique Syrian enamel vases from the Ottoman era, old Arabic calligraphy and Persian miniature prints of the Arabian Nights for instance. However prices are high and if you are going to Israel any time soon save your shopping for antiquities in Jerusalem.
