The Amman Marriott Hotel has been placed on the 2004 Condé Nast Traveller Gold List, an annual guide to the Top 700 hotels, resorts, and cruise lines in the world.
The hotel is the only one in Jordan that has made the list, said a spokesman.
The score on the Gold List is derived from responses of the Condé Nast Readers' Choice Poll, the oldest and largest independent poll of travel consumers published, it said. Unlike many other travel publications, Condé Nast Traveler does not accept free travel and accommodations, and its correspondents, and as far as possible, travel anonymously.
John Northen, country general manager for Marriott Hotels, said: “We are thrilled that the Amman Marriott Hotel has been recognised once again by such a prestigious publication. This is truly a valuable distinction since the readers of Condé Nast are the most affluent, sophisticated and frequent travellers. To be collectively judged by them and ranked among the best in the world is an honour.”
