Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Convenient downtown Jacksonville location
  • Spacious rooms with comfortable beds and big bathrooms
  • All rooms have stocked minibars and great city views
  • Attractive heated rooftop pool and sundeck
  • Decent fitness center, business center, and bright lobby
  • Bistro and bar on-site plus 24-hour room service
  • Located near many Jacksonville attractions

Cons

  • Generic decor in most rooms
  • J Bar looks a little dated
  • Daily fee for Wi-Fi use
  • Some rooms have old tube TVs

Bottom Line

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 Outdated tube TVs are still found in some rooms, but rooms are spacious and offer stocked minibars and great city views.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.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

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.

  • 24-minute drive to Jacksonville International Airport
  • 4-minute walk to Florida Theatre Performing Arts Center
  • 4-minute walk to Jacksonville Landing
  • 9-minute walk to the Museum of Contemporary Art
  • 12-minute walk to Southbank Riverwalk, a large dining and entertainment complex
  • 4-minute drive to the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens
  • 10-minute drive to Jacksonville Municipal Golf Course
  • 19-minute drive to Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens
  • 22-minute drive to Timucuan Ecological and Historical Preserve
  • 24-minute drive to Jacksonville Beach
