AccorHotels Group has rebranded a hotel in Jordan to Le Grand Amman in partnership with Iskan Co. for Touristic & Hotel Investments. "This property will be operated as Le Grand Amman – managed by AccorHotels," Sami Nasser, COO of luxury brands at AccorHotels Middle East, said in a statement, and said that the hotel would transition into the first Sofitel Hotels & Resorts property in Jordan.
The Sofitel Amman, which has 298 guestrooms and 67 serviced apartments, is slated to open by the end of 2019, following the first phase of refurbishments.
Le Grand Amman is near the upcoming Abdali Downtown Project mixed-use development and key ministries, including the Ministry of Trade and Ministry of Interior.
AccorHotels has a portfolio of three hotels in Jordan, including the recently opened Fairmont Amman and the ibis Amman. The group also currently operates more than 100 hotels with approximately 34,000 guestrooms in the Middle East. An additional 90 Accor-branded hotels are under development across the Middle East and are set to open within the next five years.
The company's stock of hotels in the region is expected to double in size, adding more than 26,000 additional guestrooms to the Middle East.
AccorHotels Group also operates the Tamheed-AccorHotels Académie Middle East hospitality training academy in the Middle East.
