Simply the Best!
Such an amazing experience. We will be Kempinski fans for life! They made my husband’s birthday so special. The restaurant we made reservations at in advance was closed for a private event but they let us order off that menu and the chef came down to our table to ensure everything was perfect. They also provided a glass of sparkling wine for the trouble. Our server Saleh was so kind and even sang Happy Birthday. We returned to a chocolate cake in the room! Things got even better the next morning. We met Ivan at breakfast who enquired about our day. Upon finding out we had a 1am flight and planned to tour the baptism site he encouraged us to come back and shower before our flight. We ended up in Amman touring the citadel so I contacted the downtown Amman location to see if they had a shower room as well and they were so welcoming! After a hot day touring around to be able to shower before a 12 hour flight was so kind. I recommend the hotel for its impeccable service.
