We picked this hotel because we had booked a cruise going out of Jacksonville. We actually had reservations at another hotel, but the shuttle rates from the airport to the hotel, and then to the cruise-port, were outrageous! We stumbled upon this hotel with the "park & cruise" plan. For an extra $20 for the one night we stayed there, we could park our car at the hotel parking lot, and get a shuttle to and from the cruise-port. Since parking at the cruise-port is $15 / day, and a shuttle one-way was $20/person, this is a huge bargain! (We didn't have a car to park at the hotel, but wanted to utilize the shuttle!)
We arrived at the airport at 10:30 am, well before the 4:00 pm check-in time. We called the hotel, and they welcomed us early. They recommended the Millhouse Steakhouse next door, told us it had great food, and $2 drinks. We are so glad we tried it! Fabulous restaurant.
Our ship got delayed, and the hotel manager was so accommodating! We were able to stay in our room until 7:30 pm, when the shuttle was scheduled to pick us up. (check out time is usually by 11:00 am).
I highly recommend this hotel, especially to anyone going on a cruise out of Jacksonville. Nice facility, wonderful staff and service!
