stay away from the hotel.
This place is Awful!! The rooms are dark and dirty (don't know how long ago these pics were taken but look nothing like our room) Our shoes stuck to the carpet and the furniture was really uncomfortable. We even found old food and candy under the furniture when we were making sure we had everything before checkout. The noise level is unbearable, especially in rooms near the front entrance and bar entrance from both inside and out. Walls are paper thin and you may then wish you were hearing the bar noise. Ok if you want a party hotel, but for the price of the suite (which I use the term loosely) , you would be better off to go get a really nice room at the Marriott....and still maybe have some money to spare!! Not the place to be if you want a relaxing weekend/stay. You will go home with a bad back and bags under your eyes from lack of sleep. Only redeeming things were that the wedding/reception/food were good. Should have stayed somewhere else and driven over for the festivities.
It is said to be haunted but even the ghosts have moved on due to the noise!!!
Only single party animals would probably be happy staying here. This place is historical but has not fared well. They need to decide what to be when they grow up. Trying miserably to be classy while trying to make money off the rowdy bar crowd. Shouldn't charge upscale rates (when it is definitely not) and then sell out to the party crowd at the expense of your guests.
This is a wonderful place to go for brunch. They also have a rather cool penthouse bar with beautiful views of the beach! Sterling is the most amazing man and he runs the restaurant part of this business... if your new to Jax you should introduce yourself to him.. He is sorta like Jax Beaches Mayor.. lol
Great place for drinks/tapas.
We have come here a few times for tapas and drinks before going out and the food has been outstanding every time. The martinis are big and well made. The penthouse martini bar has an incredible view and the overall atmosphere is upscale. The lump crab cake dish is one of the best I have ever had-it is on par with high end retaurants in Atlanta and Boston.
