“Very Good Aqaba Hotel....Smokers abound”
Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

A fine Aqaba Hotel for locals and tourists alike. Staff and rooms and restaurants and amenites are high. Smokers are everywhere in Aqaba and the hotel has not been able to purge these antisocial addicts; some hazmat work will have to be done at some future point. Enforcement against toxic behavior -- smoking -- has to improve throughout Jordan, including this otherwise fine hotel.

Very nice hotel. Staff was excellent. The room was excellent. Upgraded to Superior Ocean View with two beds, a wonderful room with view of the Red Sea, Egypt, Israel, downtown Aqaba and the pool. Manager contacted me a week before arrival to welcome me and assure me that we would be upgraded. I am HHonors Gold and was booked for a free stay with a very reasonable redemption rate. The room was large, comfortable, separate sitting area and walk in closet/storage area. Beds were as good as any I have ever stayed in. Downtown location is convenient for a wide variety of dining options. The in-house food choices were also very good, including the free breakfast with omelet/eggs/pancakes cooked to order and large buffet. The Doubletree is not beach front, but offers free transportation and admission to an outstanding beach club, with pools and restaurants about 20 minutes away. Shuttle return from the beach could be more frequent, but for all the other value received, you could take a taxi back if you didn't want to spend the whole day at the beach. We stayed at the hotel for four days, the front desk staff remembered us (and our names) and cheerfully accommodated all our requests. Highly recommended if you stay in Aqaba/

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are the best and they will do their best to accommodate upgrades for HHonors members.

we arrived at this hotel as the last leg of a travelsphere tour of Jordan and looking forward to some well earned r&r.we thought we would find our rooms and then have a wander round town ,but after finding the pool /bar on the first floor it was back to the room to change for a swim.
the rooms are well furnished and very clean and comfortable.the bathroom had everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel,but what really made this place stand out for me were the staff in the restaurant and especially the staff in the pool area the male attendant was so quick to get you towels or to turn on the Jacuzzi and the waitress was really friendly and attentive.
the hotel is quite large but gives the appearance of always having lots of space as it never seemed crowded.all in all it was the perfect place to finish a wonderful tour

Room Tip: the higher up you are the better the view

We stayed for two different nights between a trip to Wadi Rum. The hotel has lovely rooms, a great pool overlooking the Red Sea so if you don't want to spend a fortune and are willing not to be right at the beach, this is a great choice. The hotel does run a shuttle to the beach but it's not very frequent. Instead, we lounged at the pool all day, had lunch delivered there and generally relaxed. Good restaurants are just a few blocks away.

The one BIG problem is that rooms on the street side are VERY noisy. Our first night our room faced the pool but on our second stay we faced the street and had a hard time getting to sleep.

Room Tip: request a room away from the street side

I booked a " room with king size bed and "superior" ocean view. The room was pricey but well appointed. The view was very nice but partially obstructed by the design of the hotel.
Overall the room was on par for what is expected of a Hilton. Great bathroom with a soaking tub and shower. A decent desk and sitting area and a small but functional balcony.
But the bed deserves a standing ovation. I have stayed in many hotels and can not point out an "exceptional" sleep experience until now. At least for me, this was not like sleeping at home it was better!!! Great bedding, crisp linens and a magic mattress.
The staff was polite and informative. The breakfast buffet was good but not extraordinary. Overall it was very good experience, mostly because of the incredible bed.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms vary but can be worth the extra cost.

We choose this hotel for its location which is right in the middle of the city, the sea views are breathtaking and the pool very relaxing. The best thing though is the staff, from the start of our stay they were very friendly and efficient, and this was even more when they sent a cake for my mothers birthday which was during our stay... My sister had been trying to reach them and finally gave up and send them an email and they surprised us with a great cake that said happy birthday... Great customer service!
