Hotels in Amman

When I think of Jordan I always picture the ancient Nabatean city of Petra, particularly the Sic and the Treasury made famous in the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.   To be sure Petra is the crown jewel of Jordan’s historic sites not to be missed when one visits this country.  But there is much more to Jordan than the Rose City of Petra which is located in the southern region of the kingdom.  There are many other historic and natural sites; The Dead Sea, ancient fortresses, desert castles, and natural bridges, just to name a few.

When we visit Jordan we like to base ourselves in Amman, the capital, and take day trips to the surrounding areas.  Of course we head south for a short stay in the seaside city of Aqaba which brings us closer to Petra and Wadi Rum.

Amman is a wonderful city with many historic sites, great food, and hospitable people.  It’s also centrally located so that a day trip to the desert region, the Dead Sea, Mt. Nebo, and other tourist sites is possible.

Here are a few family friendly hotels we stay at when we’re in town.
