AccorHotels has announced the rebranding of a landmark hotel in Jordan to Le Grand Amman.
The property consisting of 298-rooms and 67 well-appointed serviced apartments was launched in partnership with Iskan Co. for Touristic & Hotel Investments.
A welcome addition to Jordan’s rapidly evolving tourism and travel industry, the 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.
“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.
“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 & bar 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.
Sami Elmabrouk chairman of Iskan Co. for Touristic & Hotel Investments, added: “AccorHotels’ unparalleled network of hotels across the Middle East and strong distribution platform makes them the ideal partner as we look to expand our hospitality offering within Jordan.
“We are confident that Le Grand Amman – Managed by AccorHotels, which will later be reintroduced as Sofitel Amman, will be a truly remarkable and unique property within a growing market.”
