AccorHotels have announced the rebranding of a prominent landmark hotel in Jordan to Le Grand Amman – managed by AccorHotels.
The property consisting of 298-rooms and 67 well-appointed serviced apartments was launched in partnership with Iskan Co. for Touristic & Hotel Investments.
Le Grand Amman is situated in close proximity to the upcoming Abdali Downtown Project, a ground-breaking development that is set to become Amman’s premiere leisure, tourism and business hub.
Catering towards a growing number of business travellers, the hotel is located at the centre of the Shmeisani commercial hub close to key ministries like those of trade and interior.
A welcome addition to Jordan’s rapidly evolving tourism and travel industry, the luxury property is set to become Sofitel Amman following the first phase of refurbishment towards the end of 2019.
Upon completion, this will mark the debut of Sofitel Hotels & Resorts in Jordan.
Sami Nasser, chief operating officer, luxury brands, AccorHotels Middle East, commented: “This opening signifies the strategic expansion of our luxury portfolio in Jordan.
While this property will be operated as Le Grand Amman – Managed by AccorHotels, we are delighted to announce that it will transition into Sofitel, making way for the entry of one of our most prolific luxury brands in Jordan.”
He added: “Through this development with our trusted partner, we aim to bring the French art de vivre to a vibrant and growing market.”
The hotel features two specialty restaurants, an all-day dining restaurant, a trendy lobby lounge, along with a pool bar.
Guests can relax and unwind at the spa or focus on wellness through the health club, indoor and outdoor pools.
Business travellers also have access to eight meeting rooms in addition to the largest ballroom in Amman for large-scale events and family occasions.
AccorHotels operates three hotels in Jordan, including the recently opened Fairmont Amman and the ibis Amman.
