The general manager of Grand Hyatt Amman, Mr. Otto Steenbeek said regarding this award: "We are thrilled and honoured to receive this prestigious award from our travel partners, especially when bearing in mind that in October of 2006, we were voted “Top Hotel in the Middle East” by our customers as well. A truly magnificent recognition for all the efforts the Management and Associates have put into the repositioning and rebuilding of Grand Hyatt Amman! It means we’re doing something very right and our customers and partners seem to recognize and appreciate it.”
He continued explaining that it furthermore proves that last year’s prestigious Conde Nast Award was not a one-off affair. The consistency in delivering quality service is being recognized now for a second year in a row!
Steenbeek continues “Hyatt has always been synonymous with quality and it is Hyatt’s continuous desire and drive to excel in service delivery towards all customers in each and every market place it operates. Testimony of this may be found in the fact that Grand Hyatt Dubai, Grand Hyatt Cairo and Grand Hyatt Muscat all won awards at the World Travel Awards ceremony.”
“We will continue our journey to achieving even greater levels of service with the upcoming room renovations, which will see Grand Hyatt Amman turn into a near new and truly cutting-edge hotel, with outlets and public areas having been recently renovated.”
