Hospitality

Central for conventions, business trips, medical and eco-tourism, Downtown offers more than 2,300 hotel rooms and 520,000 square feet of air-conditioned meeting space. Upscale hotel accommodations offer a range of on-site amenities and are within walking distance of sports areas, concert venues, dining, entertainment and Downtown’s scenic riverwalks. With easy access to the Interstate, Downtown is a short drive to regional tourism highlights including the Beaches and historic St. Augustine.

In 2021, Delta Hotels by Marriott will take over the Lexington Hotel brand along the Southbank Riverwalk adding a full-service convention hotel to their brand in Downtown.

With available property on and near the St. Johns River, Downtown is primed for hotel development. Hotels are currently planned to breathe new life into some of Downtown’s historic buildings as well as planned for multiple mixed-use developments, including The Shipyards and The District on the riverfront.
