"Best views of the downtown riverfront skyline!" Top 5 Page for this destination Crowne Plaza Hotel Jacksonville Riverfront Tip by HSC123
Crowne Plaza Hotel Jacksonville Riverfront, Jacksonville: 374 reviews and 2 photos
Unique Qualities: While not as glitzy as the Hyatt across the river, the Crowne Plaza is a long-time fixture along the city's Southbank (although it used to be a Hilton). While the hotel was completely renovated several years back the original Hilton that occupied this building served as the Jacksonville home of Elvis Presley when he would stop in for concerts. (Useless trivia: I believe that Elvis' first ever major concert anywhere was held at the Florida Theatre in Jacksonville).
Anyway, history aside, today's Crowne Plaza is located right on the Southbank Riverwalk with an elevated pool deck and private balconies that overlook the river and provide the best skyline views of any downtown hotel.
Hungry? Bring your appetite (and wallet) as one of the city's Ruth's Chris Steakhouse locations is located inside the hotel with windows overlooking the river and skyline.
The hotel also has its own luxury yacht, the Jacksonville Princess, which offers romantic dinner and river cruises. In addition, it is a short walk from the water taxi, museums, restaurants, the monorail and the Landing.
