The ability of Amman to adapt over the years has seen the city survive where others have fallen. Le Royal is no different in that sense. When owners of the five-star hotel decided to do a full upgrade with 32 completely new elevators, careful attention was paid to the environmental impact of the new project.

THE RISE OF A SUPERTALL
Soaring to a height of more than one kilometer, Jeddah Tower will be the tallest building in the world when completed in 2019.
RISING TO THE CHALLENGE
With its three cascading towers crowned by a connecting Sands Skypark, the multi-use resort defines the city’s skyline and offers an extraordinary experience for leisure and business travelers from all over the world.
The Makkah Clock Royal Tower Hotel can only be described in superlatives: the tallest hotel, the largest indoor space (1.6 million square meters for the total project), and on the list of tallest buildings, it currently holds second place.
A SKYLINE REDEFINED
Piercing the sky like a shard of glass, The Shard is putting new punctuation to an already famous cityscape. Standing at 310 meters, this landmark building is the tallest in Western Europe.
LE ROYAL GOES GREEN
Amman – capital of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan – is a city steeped in history. When construction on the Le Royal hotel was completed in 2002, it was ultra-modern, yet its tower-like structure sits comfortably in a metropolis whose history stretches back more than 3,000 years.
