Amman boasts some of the top accommodations in Jordan if you’re looking to get the most bang for your buck. Luxurious suites, excellent views and incredible dining are all commonplace among the city’s hotels.
Wild Jordan Center is a favorite among tourists for its wonderful location overlooking Old Amman. The hotel features a sun terrace, on-site restaurants, an entirely smoke-free atmosphere and a prime spot just 1.5 kilometers from Rainbow Street. The rooms each have a balcony, compact kitchen, seating areas with a flat-screen TV and private bathrooms with a bidet.
Le Royal Amman towers over the city skyline and stands out at night with its unique, bright lights. The luxury accommodations include rooms across 31 floors, banquet facilities, ethnic and gourmet restaurants on site and within walking distance, and a spa stretched across two floors. The rooms are comfortable, though not particularly unique.
The Monarch Hotel is situated just 7 kilometers from Al Hussein National Park and is designed with families in mind. Smaller than many hotels in the city, Monarch still offers impressive accommodations that feature an outdoor pool, fitness area, a restaurant and a terrace. The rooms feature stone walls and wood, offering a unique feel that makes you feel at home.
The Rotana Hotel was the first tower hotel and tallest building in Amman. Its location near Al Abdali, Amman’s new downtown, offers the best accommodation in the heart of the city. It boasts 412 rooms spread across 50 floors, each with floor-to-ceiling windows and breathtaking views. The modern interior of the building is a work of art, and the on-site facilities rival any hotel in the city.
It’s one of a traveler’s worst nightmares to stay in a hotel where the beds are infested with bed bugs. These tiny creatures aren’t always visible to the naked eye, but they can completely ruin a vacation and leave hotel guests itching and scratching for weeks. Here are a few ways to ensure where you lay your head at night isn’t also where bed bugs lay their own.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
The idea of secret pockets in travel gear was once about waist wallets lying flesh on your stomach and awkward inner pockets. The location not only made it impossible for pickpockets to get to but also travelers trying to access their passports and cash. Other travel clothes promise to deter pick-pocketers but are also difficult to manage the bulky inner pockets while exploring.
All Nippon Airways (ANA) is the largest airline in Japan. With flights from the United States to Japan and all of Asia, it's the perfect airline to book your next trip with. From ANA's amazing in-flight food to its excellent customer service, it comes as no surprise ANA has been awarded five stars for its seventh consecutive year by the SKYTRAX World Airline Rating.
The TSA's ever-changing rules of shoes on or off, liquids and more are confusing to even savvy travelers. The rule of thumb is to stay flexible to anything reasonable the TSA asks and avoid bringing anything obviously off-limits like sharp objects including nail clippers and nail files. However, the TSA is relaxing its hands-on stance on laptops and liquids with the help of new scanning machines.
