Surprised no one from Amman has posted anything on this potentially impressive hotel. The name is not very striking but the construction I have noticed to have gained momentum after several years of hiatus. It is in the busy Shmeisani area and from the pic I took of the rendering, will certainly be a recognizable building in Amman. Await some local feedback. Cheers!

I agree Yazm1991..the construction progress is quite impressive. Have they reached the pinnacle yet? With not such a snappy name, it looks to me that this will be a **** hotel. They don't even post a website - could be wrong though.

Not sure if they have reached the pinnacle yet, but at this rate the hotel could be finished by late this year or early 2010.

In regards to the actual hotel itself, I don't think it will be very "classy" or "uppermarket" but i suspect it will be maybe a 3.5-4 star hotel.

The building is coming out quite nicely and is becoming noticeable from many angles in Amman. I will try to take some pics shortly as the top floor has been topped out.
