A taste of the USA?

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 6, 2015

The Marriott Amman stands high in the Shmeissani district, in West Amman. Shmeissani seems to be a district of government offices, other offices (banks etc), private schools and nurseries, other 5* hotels and pricey residential streets. It's not a location I'd choose for a visit to Amman unless I was willing to use taxis to get around as there are barely any shops, cafes or eating places in that area and certainly none within easy walking distance of the Marriott.

Like all upmarket hotels in Jordan, the Marriott has security scanning on entry. Staff are extremely courteous and most are very friendly. The lobby area is as plush as one might expect and largely non-smoking (very unusual in Jordan), as are a large number of the hotel's rooms.

My room was on the 11th floor, with a good view over the city. The bed was large and extremely comfortable, the bathroom clean and pleasant (although the bath was the shallowest I have ever seen). Tea and coffee making facilities are provided, along with a (smallish) complimentary bottle of water. Plenty of hanging and storage space, iron & ironing board, flatscreen TV, roomsafe....but no robe or slippers (odd in a 5*, surely?).

Rooms have wifi and wired internet but it comes at a price. The only free access is in the public areas, which is a bit of a hassle.

The lifts are speedy and efficient, operated only by use of one's keycard.

As the heating system is centrally operated (when it is warmer the air con can be individually controlled) I was particularly pleased that it was possible to open the window.

There's an outdoor pool, a beauty salon, a fitness centre and a couple of shops within the hotel, plus two ATMs.

There are several places to eat within the hotel. Breakfast was pleasant, with a good choice of international hot & cold foods but very little in the way of Jordanian or Arabic dishes. There was a sad lack of anything other than international dishes in the hotel's restaurants, so I gave up and ate twice in the Champions Sports Bar, definitely USA in tone with several screens showing several sports and a menu featuring exactly the same type of dished one would expect in a US bar. The food was well-prepared and tasty (first night a Reuben and fries, second cheesy nachos) with the large portion sizes I've come to expect in the US, but it is by no means cheap and the same applied to the alcohol. I took advantage of the bar's happy hour for my beer, though was irritated to find that the two-for-one offer only applied to imported brands.

To be honest, this Marriott did not really impress me in the way the Movenpicks at the Dead Sea, Aqaba and (to a lesser extent) Petra had done. It had absolutely no local flavour whatsoever and, had i not looked out of the window or wandered into the 'salon' (conference rooms) area I really could have been anywhere in the world. I suppose some people like and expect that but, for me, the Marriott was rather a disappointment.

If you are looking for a rather bland and somewhat characterless upmarket hotel well away from any feeling for local life then the Marriott is fine. If you'd prefer to feel that you are actually in Jordan I suggest you look at other hotels in Amman.

I would not expect anything less

I stayed at the Marriott Amman for my trips to Amman in February 2007. The room had the typical comfortable Marriott interieur that you would find in Marriotts all over the world.

The internet access in the room is charged at JD 10.50 for 24 hours or JD 20 for 48 hours which I found quite expensive. The hotel itself has friendly staff and the restaurants are very good too.

Unique Quality: - Good variety at the Breakfast buffet
- Champions Sports bar which gives you a typical pub like atmosphere.
