Fairmont headed to Jordan

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts will welcome a new hotel to its growing portfolio in the Middle East – the Fairmont Amman, expected to open in 2014. The luxurious hotel will be situated next to the Fifth Circle in the heart of Amman, less than 30 minutes from the airport, adjacent to the Embassy District, the new Royal Jordanian headquarters, the Abdali Development and its growing commercial enterprises. The Fairmont Amman will feature 290 guest rooms and suites, including Fairmont Gold, the brand’s hotel within a hotel. There will be a number of specialty restaurants and bars, as well as Willow Stream, Fairmont’s signature Spa brand. For corporate events, weddings and local galas, the hotel will feature more than 2,000 square metres of function space, including an 800-square-metre ballroom. (
