Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

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.

Childcare

The Fairmont Amman welcomes children, but as it is popular with business travelers as well as leisure travelers, it does have quite a grown up and formal feel. However there are interconnecting rooms for families, and there is a Kid's Club and children's pool.  

Facilities

With seven different food and beverage outlets, a fabulous rooftop pool, its own shopping arcade, a fully equipped gym and welcoming Willow Stream Spa, The Fairmont does not fall short when it comes to facilities. The Willow Stream Spa in particular is one of the property's most stand-out features, as it offers a Moroccan hamman, Dead Sea Pool, Ice fountain and Dead Sea mud room.

Activities

During your stay in Amman it is possible to do guided walking tours of the city, where you can visit the key historical sites including the Citadel and Roman Theatre. It is also possible to head north of Amman, where you can visit the amazing Roman ruins at Jerash. The Fairmont Amman is only a short drive from downtown Amman and Rainbow Street, which is where you will find the most buzzing restaurants and bars.
