AMMAN — Golden Tulip Hotels announced in a press release this week that with the help and support of the Ministry of Tourism it is planning to open new hotels in Jordan next year offering many job opportunities in the hospitality industry. The Golden Tulip Hotels is part of Louvre Hotel Group, owned by Starwood Capital, and comprises seven prestigious hospitality brands with more than 1,000 hotels in 43 countries. Tourism Minister Nayef Al Fayez and Jordan Tourism Board Managing Director Abed Al Razzaq Arabiat discussed recently the hotels development in Jordan and the Golden Tulip Hotels expenditure in particular, especially that Amman’s Queen Alia International Airport is close to opening its new terminal with the capacity for nine million passengers. The second phase of the current expansion work is expected to increase capacity to 15 million passengers.
Four new five-star hotels in Amman and Aqaba, which are scheduled to be operational by early 2016, will create about 1,800 jobs, according to a leading hotelier.
Hotels don’t want guests to have to linger at the front desk — or even stop by at all.
Despite the increase in tourism revenues in the first 11 months of the year, the number of tourists visiting archaeological sites witnessed a drop in that period, with the Jordan Tourism Board (JTB) planning to target direct consumers to promote these sites for 2015.
