While it’s true that there are quite a few Jax hotels, there aren’t many that offer the rooms and suites near the airport and the comfortable amenities that are offered by the Clarion Airport Hotel and Conference Center, and it’s only a short drive to the beach from the hotel. Don’t settle for other hotels near the Jacksonville (JAX) International Airport—insist on the Clarion!
The Jacksonville area has evolved into a major metropolitan area, and has become a destination city of its own in recent years. Visitors arrive here from all over the country each year to take part in the many events that take place here on the First Coast. Among the most popular are the TPC golf tournament, the Jacksonville Jazz Festival and the Jacksonville Film Festival. Also close to our hotel in Jacksonville is the legendary Jacksonville Zoo, as well as the Cruise Port, from which major cruise ships set sail.
In the Spring of each year, the best golfers in the world and an army of fans converge on Sawgrass at Ponte Vedra to witness one of the PGA tour’s most prestigious events. The purse is over $9 million and the pros are in top form.
April brings with it the melodious sounds of Jazz on the St. Johns River, as the Jacksonville Jazz Festival gets under way. The second largest in the country, the Jazz Festival includes Art at the Met, featuring local artists and crafters as well as the Great American Jazz Piano Competition.
Perfect for families of all sizes, the Jacksonville Zoo offers one of the best places in Florida to see more than 1,500 species of animals and 1,000 unique types of plants, all well-maintained and close to the Clarion Hotel in Jacksonville.
Our Jacksonville hotel’s location is ultra convenient for those embarking on a Carnival cruise aboard the Celebration. Arrive a few days before your cruise and see the sights of this exciting city.
