New Hyatt Hotel to Bring More Event Space to Jacksonville

A new hotel with substantial meeting space is headed to Jacksonville

Concord Hospitality has announced that construction has started on Hyatt Place Jacksonville. Located across the street from St. Johns Town Center, the 160-room hotel, Hyatt Place Jacksonville, is scheduled to open in late 2018.

The property will be located at The Strand at St. Johns Town Center, a new 45-acre, mixed-use development with retail, restaurants and apartment homes. Hyatt Place Jacksonville will have a five-story design with 160 guest rooms; the Gallery, complete with 3,000 square feet of flexible meeting space; an outdoor pool and fitness center; and an outdoor deck for social and private events.

Concord operates two additional Hyatt-branded properties in Florida: Hyatt Place Miami Airport and Hyatt Centric South Beach Miami, and it is scheduled to open Hyatt Centric Brickell Miami in late 2017.

The move is part of a recent run of new convention center projects and event hotel openings in Florida. Fort Lauderdale and Miami are both in the midst of convention center expansions, while in Palm Beach there’s talk of a new hotel connected to the Palm Beach County Convention Center. Earlier this year a number of new event hotels opened in the state. The JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort opened in early January following a $320 million renovation of the former Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort, Golf Club & Spa. Later in January the Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach opened with 343 guest rooms and over 22,000 square feet of flexible meeting space.
