As the Marriott hotel belongs to the famous international hotel group, it offers the same modern comfort and standardised decoration as any other. Indeed, you will be greeted by a nice, cosy atmosphere in the newly redecorated guestrooms, it's just a shame that this doesn't apply to the spa and massage rooms which are desperately lacking in atmosphere and comfort.

The Marriott Amman is located in the district of Shmeisani, a stone's throw away from the city centre. The international airport is a half-hour's drive away.
The spa was renovated in 2008 and the guestrooms in April 2009.
The Marriott Amman hotel was built in 1982; it is a 15-floor, well-maintained white building, which houses 293 rooms. Upon arrival, you will enter into a vast and bright reception hall, where shades of beige dominate the decor and a series of stairways go up to small lounge areas on mezzanines. Pastries, various snacks and tea and coffee are served in a bar not far from the lobby. The atmosphere is very cosy and hushed, furnished with inviting red and beige armchairs, and guests can also enjoy live piano music from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.This hotel's many amenities include an outdoor pool, a spa and an indoor pool, massage rooms, a jacuzzi, a hammam and a sauna. A gym is also available for sports enthusiasts.The spa was renovated in 2008 and the massage rooms were due to be renovated in 2009. Ideal for business trips, the Marriott Amman is equipped with a business centre, WiFi internet access and conference rooms.
In the course of 2009, the 293 guestrooms were all due to be renovated. Standard rooms are decorated in shades of green and brown (carpet and curtains) with botanical patterns lending them a garden ambience. The very snug bed is perfect to get a good rest and the new decoration creates a modern and soothing ambience, in which you can really feel at ease. All guestrooms are equipped with a television, a telephone, internet, tea and coffee-making facilities, air-conditioning, a safe and an ironing board. The reasonably sized bathrooms are not particularly original but their amenities are satisfying - a bathtub, a hair-dryer and a dressing gown. An ice machine has been installed on every floor which is really handy in the summertime.
The Marriott's main restaurant, called Villa Mediterraneo, serves international as well as Mediterranean cuisine in a southern ambience - the colour ochre, wrought iron chandeliers and arches are all reminders of Mediterranean architecture. The restaurant has two rooms: the main one and one which can be hired for private functions, with a view of the pool. Breakfast is served as a buffet, lunch and dinner are served both a la carte or as buffets. On Mondays, Mexican food is served and on Thursdays, you can eat Asian food. The alternative is the sports bar called Champion, where fries, burgers, pizzas and snacks are served in a 100% sportive setting: with photographs of sportsmen and women, winners' cups, posters and a television showing matches and other sports events. Every Thursday, the pub organises a karaoke and dance night. Here's yet another place, with a completely different atmosphere, called Library, where excellent Australian beefsteak and wine are served. It is cigar-smoking place with a very British-style, furnished with red armchairs, a lot of wood and a fireplace. The only downside is the smell of smoke which can disturb some.
