Popular with the corporate set, this downtown hotel makes a convenient and central base for both the executive and the leisure traveler. Located in the business district close to restaurants and other big-name hotels, the newly renovated Intercontinental Amman has looks, positioning and the full list of five-star services. Rooms are super spacious even by US standards, and have wifi, picture windows and functioning work areas, and Club Level rooms practically pay for themselves once all the free food and drinks are factored in. While the hotel is predominantly for business, there are plenty of things to entice the tourist, such as city tours, Dead Sea mud wraps and various sea- and sand-related adventure packages. The Old Town is three kilometers away.
