Comfortable, great food and the staff is SO nice

We stayed 4 nights at the Omni. The comfortable beds and pillows made it feel like I was sleeping at home. All of the staff at the hotel were friendly and very helpful, getting us cabs, umbrellas, whatever we needed. The restaurant was wonderful…we ate there every morning for breakfast and also for lunch and snacks. Food was fresh and delicious. The breakfast buffet was outstanding with something for everyone, including gluten free food, non-dairy options, freshly made omelets - grits were GREAT! The lunch buffets on Wed- Friday were awesome and a great value. What made it so cozy was the friendly staff. It's a home away from home. We will return.

Rent a car if you didn't drive in because it can take a long time to get a cab.

Business Trip

I had A very pleasant experience at the downtown Omni Hotel Jacksonville Florida. The location of the hotel was perfect.I was greeted by the valet parking assistance. Who then assisted me with my luggage and check in. The front desk assistance were very friendly and personable. Gave me all the help that I needed in getting around the city. The Hotel was extremely neat and clean. The room had a beautiful view of the river. The roof top pool was outstanding along with the restaurant and bar. The cost of staying was very affordable and would stay again.

Very nice atmosphere

A friend and I stayed at the Omni after a trip to callahan florida. The atmosphere was very nice and the rooms were gorgeous. I did not like however that we had to pay to park. If we are paying to stay at the hotel, I feel parking should be included.

Convenient stay

I was in Jacksonville for a quick overnight for work and the hotel met all my needs when there. Attentive staff, dining area with convenient hours, nice rooms and someone to help me get a cab ASAP early the next morning. Would recommend to others.

Better than expected

Plush, comfy room; free coffee delivered to the room , nice bedding. Decent food in restaurant though not outstanding. Price was so low that I was expecting far less. Downtown Jax isn't much for a tourist. Close by Landing development does not seem to be doing that well. But it has several pub food type places and several where you can sit waterside and see a pleasant river view. If you need to be in Jax on business , this hotel is definitely a great choice in terms of comfort and convenience.

Mini Vaca

The staff was wonderful. It was great to just be able to relax and come and go as we pleased. We were able to walk to down town to see some of the festival that was going on, and everything we wanted was within a 15 minute drive. This was a great mini vacation and the hotel was perfect!

Very nice hotel in downtown Jacksonville

Flew into and out of JAX for a wedding in Valdosta, GA and needed a hotel for an overnight stay before flying home. The hotel was very easy to find. The valet staff was very polite and professional, as were the guest registration staff and guest services personnel. The seemed quite new. The lobby, elevator, hallways and room were all very attractive, neat and clean. The king bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was modern and roomy. WiFi access from the room was extra charge, but when I asked about it, they compt'd it for us. Had a great dinner at Juliette's. Overall, a good stay.

The doorman Rick might suggest the used book store/restaurant for an informal meal, but I'd say skip it unless you are only interested in used/out of print books.
