Le Royal Amman, which happens to be the second-tallest building in the whole city, has been catering to the wealthy and well-to-do of Jordan's capital since it opened in 2002. From the lobby, a 3-story boutique retail outlet, 3 cinemas, and 10 restaurants provide plenty of distraction, but there's also some stuff worth seeing inside the rooms.

Like this decadent bathroom feature, found in one of the hotel's two Royal Suites.

Upon first walking into the bathroom, we spent a while gazing around at the exquisite marble on the walls and floor, as well as the mosaic tiles inside the shower. Then we noticed a spout and basin cut into the back wall over the tub, and realized that, yes, this jacuzzi comes with its own mini waterfall.

A regular faucet sits off to the side of the tub, though the water can also be channeled down through this marble fountain, which seems like it could be useful for shampooing and face-washing.

We usually see these waterfall-type sinks in restaurant bathrooms, and find them slightly over-the-top. But the extravagance is totally at home in a bathroom like this, which comes with separate shower and steam room, flanking the bathtub to the right and left, respectively.

And the extravagance continues into the rest of the 1150 sq ft suite, which has its own 12-seat dining room, living room, kitchen, and 6 wraparound balconies with views overlooking all of Amman.
