Near the riverfront in downtown Jacksonville
The Omni Jacksonville Hotel is located near St. Johns River in the southern edge of downtown Jacksonville. This is a quiet spot in the vibrant side of town, but it is close to major attractions and some of the local dining and entertainment hotspots like the Jacksonville Landing and the Southbank Riverwalk.
Jacksonville attracts more business travelers than leisure visitors, but it is still an active town with a decent amount of attractions such as the Museum of Contemporary Art and the zoo. The city also has good restaurants, a hopping nightlife, and a couple of major sports venues. One of the main draws in the downtown area is Jacksonville Landing, a major dining and entertainment complex, located a short walk from the hotel. San Marco and Southside, on the other bank of St. Johns River, are the up-and-coming nightlife hotspots, with plenty of dining options and good cafes.
The Omni Jacksonville Hotel is a convenient pick for anyone who needs to stay downtown. The 354 rooms are typical for an upper mid-level chain, featuring comfortable bedding, large bathrooms, and sophisticated if slightly generic decor. Outdated tube TVs are still found in some rooms, but rooms are spacious and offer stocked minibars and great city views. Hotel highlights include an attractive rooftop pool and sundeck, decent fitness center, and bright, spacious lobby. There is a bistro and bar on-site and 24-hour room service is available. Omni is located near many of Jacksonville's attractions, but there is a pesky daily fee for Wi-Fi.
