Hotels in Wadi Musa, Jordan
By:Andrea M. Zander

Jordan is a country of rich history, characterized in no small part by the remarkable ruins of Petra, famously carved into the stone walls of the desert. While camels may be a common sight, they are by no means an indication of the modernization of this country, which has well-developed cities where the culture and architecture draw from the country's landscape and people. There are a number of hotels available in Wadi Musa that are located in close proximity to Petra.

Golden Tulip Kings' Way Hotel

Kings' Way takes its cue for decor from the red tones of the surrounding countryside.
Kings' Way is a modern, non-smoking hotel in Wadi Musa, two-and-a-half miles from Petra. Its 92 rooms each accommodate one to two people and offer air conditioning, television and an en suite bathroom. Guests can enjoy the swimming pool, free parking and an on-site restaurant that serves all meals buffet style. Wi-Fi is available for a fee. Room rates in 2010 run from $113 to $309.
