It was at a fantastic setting along the scenic drive, 5 Km from the site of Petra. Please note the entrance to Petra is at the town of Wadi Musa which is dirty, dusty and unattractive. So it was great to come back to a hotel away from all this mess at the end of a hard day of touring. You will need a rental car/cab service to make the most of this hotel. It does have a shuttle bus to take you to the site but the first bus leaves at 8 AM, too late. You should be at the entrance by 7 at the latest to avoid the massive crowds. The site opens at 6. The shuttle bus does NO pickup at the end of the day. The hotel does have an attractive lobby, lounge area, and a large standard guest room.
The hotel is worn. The room is good, not great, esp for the price of US250 which I paid per night. The bathroom is unaccceptable. It is 3 star BR with a poorly functioning toilet. The floor has ceramic tiles which didn't look 100% clean. The AM Bfast buffet was just adequate. My wife saw a waiter stole some food and quickly darted back into the kitchen area to eat it. She also saw waiters coming into the dining room buttoning up their sleeves- not a very professional impression all in all. We had a cheap buffect dinner at Petra Zeman right in Wadi Musa, only 10 JD per person. It was okay for the price but I got food poisoning the next day, though my wife didn't. It was terrible for me as I was sick with diarrhea during our long day at Petra
The view from the hotel is really nice and the Italian restaurant is correct; these are the only two positive things about the hotel.
The hotel is old, badly maintained, the staff look like is without any guidance and act like if they were in a 3* hotel (barman smoking behind the bar!!!). Rooms are old, not very well cleaned and the conditions of toilets are unacceptable. 200 € a night for such an accommodation is really not value for money.
The bed was really comfortable, we slept well after the exertion of seeing Petra.
There was a switch missing from the bedside lamp, so we were unable to turn it on independent of the other lamp. I pointed this out to the staff the next morning, but it was not fixed during our stay (three days) and I expect it won't be fixed. For the price we paid, this is unacceptable.
Friendly staff, spectacular view, spacious parking.
The bathroom finishing with tiles is far from what one expects from a luxury hotel; dull colours, some drilled holes...not like other Marriott hotels in the same country. Overpriced for the quality - one pays a premium to be near Petra.
The view is great especially from the pool side.... the hotel is not walking distance from the petra site but it is worth staying at and enjoying the marvelous views... anyway transportation is available and it is a 10 minute drive only
Quality & Variety of food at the buffet needs improvment
