Feedback

  • Always very attentive. A great staff to work with!”~Larry Scovotto , Executive Director, Florida Fire Chiefs

  • Feedback from attendees was ?Best ever reunion!" And it was our 19th!”~James Horn, USS Haynsworth

  • Can't think of a thing to do better. This was the easiest way to find a hotel. The whole experience was wonderful.”~Susan Webber, Girls Soccer Team

  • I was in Jacksonville, Florida this week for the AAPC annual Conference. I wish to commend American Coach Lines for the excellent service provided during the Conference. I was so impressed that there was a live person in front of the Crowne Plaza on Monday morning to make sure we had prompt service to the Convention Center. The service back and forth each day was extremely prompt and the drivers were so courteous. Everyone I heard talking about the service made positive comments - I never heard one negative remark about the service during the entire Conference. I have been to other conferences where shuttles were involved and I have never experienced the excellent service provided in Jacksonville. KUDOS for an excellent job. Thank you so much. Please pass this on to everyone involved. They deserve to know what a wonderful job they did. ”~Marty Sloop, AAPC June 2010

  • A thank you for the fabulous gift in my room today! A wonderful surprise at the end of my day! I am so excited to bring one of my groups to Jacksonville. I love this destination and hope to bring my other groups here as well.”~Pam Soules, Winmark Corporation
