when i was in egypt. i was in my hotel room. my mum calls me from her room. telling me to watch the news. the news said that there was a bombing in amman, jordan. 5 days before we got there. our hotel radisson SAS was bombed. i was surprised my mum did not freak out. we still comtinued our trip and we stayed in the same hotel.
it was like nothing happened. they did a good job cleaning up the mess. we were welcomed by CNN media in the front of the hotel. i avoided all that. my mum was being interviewed. she is such a ham.
other than that. the hotel is clean. we got awesome service. since we were the only few staying in the hotel. the gym was clean and state of the art. the pool was clean and medium size. i would go back. what an adventure. :)

Hotel blasts kill dozens in Jordan
Al-Zarqawi 'prime suspect' in nearly simultaneous suicide attacks
Thursday, November 10, 2005; Posted: 2:42 a.m. EST (07:42 GMT)
AMMAN, Jordan (CNN) -- Three apparent suicide attackers detonated nearly simultaneous explosions Wednesday night at hotels in downtown Amman, Jordan, killing at least 67 people and wounding more than 150 others, the deputy prime minister of Jordan said.
There have been no claims of responsibility, Karim Kawar, the Jordanian ambassador to the United States, told CNN.
But Deputy Prime Minister Marwan Muasher said Jordanian-born terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the head of al Qaeda in Iraq and that country's most-wanted terrorist, is among the suspects.
"Obviously, he's a prime suspect," Muasher said.
The blasts occurred first at the Radisson SAS, then at the Grand Hyatt and then at the Days Inn between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. (2 p.m. and 3 p.m. ET). The three hotels are within a few hundred yards of one another.
Muasher said the largest blast occurred at the Radisson during a wedding celebration, set off by a suicide bomber wearing a belt packed with explosives. Most of the casualties there were Jordanian, he said. (Watch eyewitness describes the scene -- 2:46)
