AccorHotels, one of the world’s leading travel and lifestyle groups, announced the rebranding of a landmark hotel in Jordan to Le Grand Amman – Managed by AccorHotels.
AccorHotels operates three hotels in Jordan, including the recently opened Fairmont Amman and the ibis Amman. In the Middle East, AccorHotels currently operates over 100 hotels, encompassing close to 34,000 rooms, in addition to almost 90 hotels under development across the luxury to economy segments within the next five years. The network is expected to double in size, bringing over 26,000 additional rooms to the region.
The property consisting of 298-rooms and 67 serviced apartments was launched in partnership with Iskan Co. for Touristic & Hotel Investments.
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.”
Sami Elmabrouk, chairman of Iskan Co. for Touristic & Hotel Investments, said: “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.”
The hotel features two specialty restaurants, an all-day dining restaurant, a lobby lounge and bar along with a pool bar. It also has a spa, a health club, and indoor and outdoor pools, in addition to eight meeting rooms and the largest ballroom in Amman for large-scale events and family occasions.
