Ammanli, Jordan, December 24, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Le Meridien Amman, a member of Starwood Hotels and Resorts, celebrated Christmas and New Year with its clients by touring the city with the joyful Santa Claus last week.

The tour, which was led by Ziad Fostuq Director of Sales and Marketing and Ibrahim Maayah Assistant Director of Sales, included surprising more than fifteen companies, where Santa Claus presented the clients with cookies and cakes.

The Christmas experience began with decorating the 5 meter Christmas tree at the beginning of December, and the official Christmas tree lighting which kicked off the festive seasons was on December 9th. The decorations include colorful trees decorated by the House Keeping team and led by Executive Housekeeper Amal Jad El Haq, ornate details, a gingerbread house created by Chef Hisham AlQaq and many twinkling lights which provide a breathtaking view from every direction in Le Meridien Amman hotel.

Mr. Ziad Fostuq, Director of Sales and Marketing, commented on this initiative by saying: “The principle drive behind this initiative is to touch base with our distinguished clients, strengthen our emotional connection with them, and enrich their festive holidays by bringing joy to their offices. This time of the year seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so.”

Delicious and diverse set menu at the Italian Enzo, the Japanese Benihana and 282 Steaks and Lounge, will be offered to celebrate Christmas Eve dinner.
