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.

The Four Seasons Amman has 15-storeys, offering sweeping views of city.

The rooms have modern amenities, and bathrooms feature a separate bathtub and shower.

The temperatures in Jordan can be quite cool in the autumn and spring, and snow in winter is not uncommon, and so a decent-sized indoor pool is a welcome facility. For ultimate relaxation, head to the hotels' spa, which embraces the country's natural resouces with the use of Dead Sea products.
The Four Seasons has three restaurants, which feature French, Mediterranean and grill menus. Afternoon tea is available at The Foyer Lounge, and the SIRR bar offers a speakeasy-style setting and extensive drinks list.

If you go for the Four Seasons, then you are going to get the Four Seasons, so to speak. World-renowned service, as well as food and comfort. Definitely one of the most luxurious choices in Amman.

Being a Four Seasons this hotel did not fail to impress me. As with many of the hotels in this group once you are inside the hotel you could be in any city in the world. The Four Seasons Amman is orientated more around the leisure traveler and would be described as the most luxurious hotel in Amman, you pay for what you get. I found my stay here extremely comfortable, not surprising when you are sleeping under 100% Egyptian Cotton sheets. The service and restaurants follow the Four Seasons brand, nothing is too much for the staff and the food is delicious.
