Avoid Football Season for Best Prices

There are several mid-range hotels in downtown Jacksonville located within walking distance of Hemming Plaza. One of the closest hotels to the park is Omni Jacksonville Hotel. This modern and elegantly furnished hotel provides stunning views of the St. Johns River and the city skyline. If you're not completely impressed with the view from your room, take in the panoramic views at the rooftop heated pool and sun deck. This full-service hotel also offers on-site dining, meeting space, and a 24-hour fitness center.

Hotels within walking distance of Hemming Plaza also offer convenient access to Jacksonville Landing, a large riverfront shopping, dining, nightlife, and performing arts venue. Additionally, travelers can hop aboard a water taxi at Jacksonville Landing to reach other areas of the city across the St. Johns River.

Downtown hotels are generally competitively priced throughout the year. However, the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars stadium, EverBank Field, is also in the downtown area and room rates spike considerably when home games are happening. The stadium is only a five-minute drive or taxi ride from most downtown hotels.

Find Affordable Hotels South of the River

A greater choice of hotels, including budget-friendly chains, is found south of the river along I-95. Like their downtown competitors, some of these hotels offer views of the river and easy access to water-taxi sites. For waterfront luxury at the best price, the Wyndham Jacksonville Riverwalk hotel often offers a 40 percent discount on last-minute bookings.
