Omni Jacksonville Hotel Questions & Answers

Freeport, Florida

Hi..I'm looking to book a room in the Jacksonville area close to Everbank Field to see a NFL game in November. We do not want to drive to the stadium from the hotel. Are there any public transportation available such as river taxi's, shuttles, taxi's etc, or is it close enough to walk? Are there restaurants and pubs near the hotel?

Thank you.

Yes - the water taxi is available - though it's probably crazy AFTER the game ... of course, there is taxi, etc. You can see the field, but it's across the river, so you could swim to it quicker than you could walk to it .. .but maybe not in November, lol.

Pretty good walk to game. I am sure there will be several opportunities for transportation, shuttle, cabs, etc. to the game. This is a major hotel reasonably close to the stadium.

I am not sure about the public transportation, but I do know there is a water taxi in JAX. LadyOmaha is right. There are no shortage of places to eat, basically across the street from the hotel at the Landing, but there are other restaurants within easy walking distance as well.

The Landing is a block away with lots of restaurants and bars. Not sure about public transportation.
