This was my first trip to Jacksonville in many years and I was surprised at how much had changed. A lot of new hotels and a lot of boarded up old properties.
This is a fairly new hotel, quite large (6 floors). This was a fairly expensive property, but nicely appointed and quite clean.
The parking area is a little small and there is almost no chance to get a space near the doors so prepare for a hike. Getting to your room was easy though as the elevator is close to the main entrance and is without a doubt the fastest and quietest elevator I have ever used.
The rooms are nicely appointed. Nice comfortable beds with a selection of pillows. The linens and bathroom supplies were nice. Although I don't know why you need such a heavy comforter in southern Florida. The climate control has a real thermostat in degrees so it is easy to set to a comfortable temperature level. It is not a window unit so the drapes stay closed but you lose a little closet space. There was also noticeable street noise even on the sixth floor.
There was a nice flat screen TV although the satellite service seemed sluggish at best. Free wireless internet was provided though it seemed a little sluggish at times.
There is an OK buffet style breakfast for $7.95 which seems pricey since most dinner prices were less. The breakfast is definitely not worth that much and I also wondered why orange juice cost 3 dollars a glass in Florida? Best tip, go somewhere else to eat.
