Closest Hotel to Jacksonville Veterans Memorial

Coming to a concert at the J. Veterans Memorial and wanted to ask if anyone knows the closest hotel. Would LOVE to be able to walk but driving a short way is expected.

Thanks so much

The Hyatt Hotel would be the closest hotel to the Arena and is just under a mile from it. The Hyatt is on the river just down from The Landing.

The Omni is across the street from The Landing and is about a quarter mile farther from the Arena than the Hyatt. These two are the only hotels anywhere near the Arena on that side of the river. The Hyatt and Omni are expensive.

Across the river, via the bridge next to the Hyatt, are some cheaper hotels: Hampton Inn and Extended Stay America both on Prudential Drive. They are about 1 3/4 miles from the Arena. It would be a scenic walk with great views from the bridge.

Any of the hotels mentioned above are within walking distance if you are used to walking. The less expensive ones will have you walking over a bridge, so there's a bit of an incline (great for exercise!) and definitely great views of the city, especially around sunset. It would be great if you had dinner at one of the restaurants on the river at sunset prior to your walk, if you decide to hoof it.

Consider, though, when you're coming. If it's a chilly evening, walking over the bridge can be really cold...it's fine as long as you're prepared for it, and if you won't be too tired after the concert to walk back. Alternatively, you could walk to the venue then take a taxi back to your hotel. The hotels are close enough that a taxi ride wouldn't be too expensive and might be well worth it if it's late at night and you're tired.

I hope you enjoy Jacksonville, and let us know if we can offer further help.
