Bright, bold, and visually different from any other Jacksonville property, this contemporary boutique hotel—albeit a chain—makes you feel more like you're staying in a hip apartment rather than a by-the-night lodging. Other room features include a desk, flat-screen TV, high-end coffeemaker, tiled walk-in shower, and large windows. Suites have a spacious soaking tub, as well as a kitchen alcove with a small refrigerator and microwave, a dining area, and a living room with a second large TV. All rooms offer free high-speed Internet and Wi-Fi, and access to a tech concierge on call. A stay here puts you 20 to 30 minutes from downtown, amid office parks where many businesses have headquarters. Tapestry Park's collection of stores and restaurants is only steps away. The hotel has a bar and eatery with outdoor seating that overlooks the nicely landscaped lake.
