Average time to visit
For a small country, Jordan has an extraordinary range of climates. The best time to visit climate-wise is in spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November), when the daytime temperatures aren't too extreme. April is probably the best month, when temperatures are warm and wildflowers are in bloom. March can be cold and rainy in the north but is balmy by the Gulf of Aqaba and the Dead Sea.

This hotel is a really good alternative to the Four Seasons for those who don't want to spend quite as much. It's really comfortable and has similar dining options to most hotels in Jordan (main restaurant, Asian restaurant, Italian restaurant), as well as the added bonus of the Deli. Service is good and it makes for a very comfortable stay in Amman.

Located in the center of Amman and not far from the Business district, this hotel was my preference for the Business traveler, this being my immediate reaction on entering the hotel. High security is prominent throughout all hotels in Jordan, especially in Amman. With a variety of restaurants I found there was no need to go looking for places to eat in the city. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to the Four Seasons this is the hotel to go for.
