Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Jacksonville Butler Boulevard
Only stayed one night after landing late at JAX, but was definately worth the money. My family and I have used a different chain hotel in the past, but we will be switching to the Radisson now. Staff was helpful even at the late hour. Room was spotless and sleep number number beds are wonderful after plane flight. Would definately stay there again.
Wonderful Business Hotel
This is a wonderful business in Jacksonville. The hotel was renovated not to long ago and it feels like new. The sleep number beds are fantastic and the staff is very friendly and attentive. Free high speed internet access and close to restaurants. Best for business.
After reading all these reviews raving about this hotel I decided to bring my family here. It wasn't what I expected. I saw words like luxury, customer service, and being treated special.
What I found was a basic full service hotel. The food was basic and blan. Most of the time the food arrived barely warm. In fact the food seems to be processed.
The sheets were like on the bed were only 200 count. The bed was nothing like the Westin Heavenly bed. After a few days we realized our sheets and towels had not been changed. When we asked about it the front desk clerk checked with the House Keeping manager and she said that had been hanging out towels back up meaning we did want the changed. So I made a couple marks in pencil on the towels and sheets that night and left them on the floor. The next night when we came back we found that our sheets and towels still had not been changed.
The next week we went to the Westin Diplomat in Hollywood Florida.... Now that is a luxury Hotel! Compare and you decide
This is a very nice hotel
I like luxury hotels when I go on vacation. This hotel gives you that luxury feeling when you walk into the lobby and the room felt like a expensive hotel like the hilton or marriott. I stayed at this hotel only because of the good reviews and everyone is right on the money with their review.
I'll stay here again.
After reading the reviews here about this hotel I decided to take a chance and give this hotel a try. That turned out to be a great decision on my part.
I had a room on the second floor. I've stayed at a few Radisson's before, but none compare to this one. The hotel had an upscale feel at an affordable price. My room was very clean and beautiful. The bathroom was nice as well. I'm very picky about showers and this one did not disappoint. A strong stream of hot water for the entire time of the shower. That's always a good thing.
I travel to Jacksonville on business once or twice a year and this hotel will always be my top choice from now on. The Dave and Busters restaurant/entertainment establishment just down the block was also a pleasant surprise.
Thank you Tripadvisor!
Bright Spot in a Bad Time
I stayed at the Radisson while my elderly mother had "routine outpatient" surgery at the Mayo Clinic hospital nearby...I walked in without a reservation. They gave me a wonderful room, at a deeply discounted rate. The surgery did not go well, and I was stuck in Jacksonville for over a week. The Radisson staff bent over backwards to help, always asking about my mother, arranging transport, etc. etc. I loved coming back to my beautiful hotel room every night. And the room service dinners were delicious. I loved every single thing about this hotel.
Hotel Hotel. Great Experience.
The hotel is located in the business park outside of town that has all new hotels. The Radison is 6 months old and is very clean, stylish and well run. The hotel staff was great and was indicative of a finer hotel.
The rooms all have sleep number beds that mold to your body. Sounds like a sales pitch, but it is awesome. And great pillows also.
Hotel resteraunt got overwhelmed and the service was slow but friendly. They credited part of the bill to compensate for it without being asked. I would stay here again.
Great - We will stay here again next year
My husband and I go to Jacksonville every year to the Players Championship and to visit family in the area. We decided to stay at the Radisson because we could get a suite and they advertised sleep number beds which we were thinking of getting for our home. We booked the suite for 5 days and it was two good sized rooms and a bath. We were in room 504 and the decor was beautiful. The sleep number bed was inviting with attractive white sheets lined in black on the outer edges (definitely high thread count) and a big cushy comforter, that appeared to be changed after 2 days with the sheet changes (warm but light weight surprisingly) instead of the drab bedspreads most hotels have. It contained a desk in both the living room and bedroom as well as a TV in each room. In the bedroom was also a microwave and refrigerator and 3 drawers and there were additional drawers in th LR if needed. The living room had a couch, a little on the hard side and 2 fairly comfortable chairs. there was also a small dining room area within the living room, that did not encroach on the LR area. The bathroom had a dressing area with the closet , safe, iron and ironing board. The bathroom was a good size with soap, shampoo, hair conditioner, mouthwash, shower cap and shoe cleaners, replaced daily, and nice thick towels. The sleep number bed was great and we are definitely going to get one for our home. Neither one of us can remember sleeping that well anywhere and we travel a lot. We had room service a few times and it was delivered quickly and the food was still hot. The folks working in the hotel always greeted us (from maintenance folks to the front desk), the room was always quiet and we felt very comfortable here. The only drawbacks which keep me from giving them an "excellent" rating - we had to have our room keys remagnitized every day (at least one of them). They tried to say in the beginning it was because we kept them near a cell phone or our credit cards but as I said, we travel a lot and we NEVER had this problem. (and keeping them separate made no difference....) They were always apologetic, we all actually got laughing about it when they would see me walking up with key in hand, and fortunately, one of our keys always worked - it actually alternated every day - strange....The second problem which was really annoying, is their high speed internet. They use a service called GoldenTree.com which had very nice folks who walked me thru setting my computer up (needed more than the standard instructions posted in the room) that was fine - I didn't mind..BUT - once I got connected, the connection dropped every 30-60 secs and then would reconnect 30-60 sec later. Spoke with the service folks again who checked some things on their end and then pinged the connections and determined it was on the hotel side and asked me to have their maintenance folks check the service on the hotel end which I did. Honestly, I didn't go back and check after that because we were busy at the tournament and family at night, so I gave up on it. But, these were minor annoyances - had I been there on business, I might have made more of a fuss about it. Overall, this was a great place to stay and my husband and I have already decided we will stay here again next year.
Pretty darn good
Great Hotel. Nice, clean and has recently undergone a very stylish remodel. Sleep number beds in the room are great. Free internet is great! Only had a small problem with the tv sound (kinda muffled), but other than that it was very nice!
I recently stayed at the NEW Radisson/Butler Blvd and I must say - it was awesome. The hotel is brand new and is the cleanest, most well kept I have ever seen. The service was outstanding and the food in the Restuarant is first-class. I thanked the Assistant GM for all his attention to detail. The decor is beautifully done. I would highly recommend this to anyone tired of the same old thing.

... Not until 1845 was Florida accepted into the union as a state. The Territorial Period (1821-1845) was marked by an intense war with native Indians, the so-called Second Seminole War (1835-1842). The United States Army took over the Castillo de San Marcos and renamed it Fort Marion. In 1861, the Civil War began. Florida joined the Confederacy, but Union troops loyal to the United States Government quickly occupied St. Augustine and remained in control of the city throughout the ...

Not many classic warbirds at our cross-country gas stops;-) Now back in the relatively cool mountain climate after the swelter in Florida, the plan is to get the Highlander repacked and restocked for the trek across the country.

... first towed - I am sure. We walked a bit down St. George street then sat a while to people watch. I saw a lot of "What were they thinking when they got dressed?" Apparently, they weren't. I don't think people ever look in the mirror before they leave home. After our rest, we decided to go to Scarlett O'Hara's for lunch. If it involves Scarlett and Rhett, it can't be all bad. I actually think Charles and I have eaten here ...
... or #3 we had to carry a lot of trash. It was a 165 yard carry and 172 yards to the center of the fairway. Tricia and I waited for the man in front of us to tee off and then the lady, and gave them what we thought was plenty of time to move on and then I hit. Of course I can't hit that far so plunked my ball into the trash, but almost made it, but I had to drop on the other side. Tricia, on the other hand, can hit that far so she teed up and let her rip. Not only did ...

Meanwhile, I leave you with this cute photo I took the other day at the Tampa Lowry Park Zoo of Zsa-Zsa (mom) and Zuri (7-month old calf).
And if anyone in the USA is bored, I have plenty of (smelly!) samples you can come help me organize and analyze, but please don't all volunteer at once.
Thank you so much,
