Traveling solo, with kids or with pets, there’s something for everyone in Jacksonville accommodations. Whatever you require of your stay, you’ll find practical amenities and luxury perks at each of our picks for the best hotels in Jacksonville.
Just a short drive from Jacksonville in Atlantic Beach, One Ocean Resort & Spa boasts a classic Florida vibe with its airy, neutral color palette and oceanfront location. This Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel always has a “Guest Historian” on staff, who keeps track of your preferences and requests, such as favorite foods and drinks and which newspaper you like to read in the morning. While you're a guest at One Ocean, relax on a lounge chair on the beach, and grab a meal at the hotel’s Forbes Travel Guide Recommended restaurant, Azurea. We'd also recommend booking an oceanfront treatment at the lovely Spa One Ocean, a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa.
If you don’t mind a bit of a drive, it would be worth your time to stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel. About 40 miles north of the city, the Ritz has a Four-Star spa as well. Another spot that is further out is Sea Island on Georgia’s southern coast, which is home to two Five-Star hotels: The Lodge at Sea Island Golf Club and The Cloister. At The Cloister, be sure to take advantage of the hotel’s Five-Star Georgian Room restaurant and the equally impressive Five-Star relaxation retreat, The Cloister Spa.
