If you are coming from outside of the Jacksonville area, we have several hotels to recommend below. We do not have a large enough group to get a group rate but there are many hotels in the area. You might also consider renting a place in Town Center or at the beaches through Airbnb or Vrbo.

Town Center: Hyatt Place

For hotels in Town Center, we recommend the Hyatt Place.

Location Map with Directions

The Hyatt Place is located at 4742 Town Center Pkwy in Jacksonville, FL.

Beaches: Sheraton

If you are looking to stay at the beach while you are in Jacksonville, the beaches are a short drive (12 min) away. For hotels at the beach, we recommend the Four Points Sheraton.

Location Map with Directions

The Four Points Sheraton is located at 11 1st St N in Jacksonville Beach, FL.

Beaches: Element

There is also its sister hotel Element, which is a block from the beach and a little more affordable but has all the access to the Sheraton's pool and beachfront.
