Jacksonville’s Hotel Happenings

So far, 2022 has brought a few new hotels to Jax, as well as a few major hotel renovations. From building brand new hotels to reimagining old spaces and renovating existing properties, check out these “new” places to stay around town:

Residence Inn Jacksonville Downtown
357 Oak Street, Jacksonville, FL 32204

In February the Residence Inn opened in Brooklyn, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Downtown Jacksonville. The hotel boasts 136 rooms each with a fully equipped kitchen as well as complimentary grocery delivery to fill your refrigerator and satisfy cravings. It also offers free hot breakfast to start mornings off right and evening social hours to end the day well. The hotel has on-site meeting rooms ideal for small groups of 20-40 people.

Salt Air Inn & Suites
425 Atlantic Blvd, Atlantic Beach, FL 32233

Originally built in 1946, the Salt Air Motel was a landmark in Atlantic Beach. After it changed ownership in 2019, the decision was made to keep the original buildings in an effort to preserve the history. After some structural improvements, upgrades, and fun additions like a swimming pool and courtyard, the Salt Air Inn & Suites is now a coastal, boutique beach hotel that opened in February.

Hotel Indigo
9840 Tapestry Park Circle, Jacksonville, FL 32246

Hotel Indigo in Deerwood Park finished renovations in February. The design inspiration was Jacksonville's silent film history as well as the architectural legacy of Henry Klutho who was a key figure in the city’s reconstruction after the Great Fire of 1901. The property is partnering with Norman Studios Silent Film Museum and you can find movie posters from films made in Jacksonville as well as furniture inspired by the early 1900’s era, throughout the property.

Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront Hotel
225 E Coastline Dr, Jacksonville, FL 32202

In March, the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront Hotel in Downtown Jacksonville completed a multimillion-dollar renovation, focused on updating meeting space with a new color palette, carpeting, coverings and updated light fixtures. The Hyatt is the largest meeting facility in Northeast Florida with 118,000 square feet of event space, including a 20,000-square-foot deck overlooking the St. Johns River.

Marriott Jacksonville Downtown Hotel
245 Water Street, Jacksonville, Florida 32202

Situated in the heart of Jacksonville’s entertainment district the Marriott Jacksonville Downtown Hotel has sweeping riverfront and downtown views. Formerly the Omni Jacksonville, the hotel became part of the Marriot Bonvoy family in April. The hotel has convenient access to TIAA Bank Field, Jacksonville Center for the Performing Arts, VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena and other popular attractions. Before the show, enjoy fine dining or a chilled cocktail at the modern bistro Juliette's & J-Bar, located on the hotel’s main level.
