Crowne Plaza Amman Wins First Place in the King Abdullah II Excellence Awards

Crowne Plaza Amman has proudly announced winning the first place in the King Abdullah II Award for Excellence 2014/2015 in the category of large service companies or their sub-units.

A big awards ceremony was held for all winners, whereby His Majesty King Abdullah II personally gave the awards to the winners. Mr. Ousama Massoud, IHG Regional General Manager in Jordan and Palestine, received the award on behalf of Crowne Plaza Amman.

About this incredible achievement, Mr. Massoud said: “It had always been a goal of ours to win the first place in this extremely prestigious and important award. That’s why after winning second place for the 2012/2013 edition, we were encouraged and motivated even more to make sure we win first place. And now that we won first place, we couldn’t be prouder to add this outstanding achievement to the long list of wins and accomplishments that were not possible without the dedication, hard work, and efforts of the Crowne Plaza Amman colleagues.”
