Radisson Jacksonville Butler Boulevard
Travel Blogs from Jacksonville
Our last day in Florida was spent in beautiful, historic, St. Augustine’s. A definite tourist attraction filled with lovely homes and lots of taverns, restaurants and shops. There are a couple cool looking sailing vessels there too. We had another fantastic meal in a restaurant called Harry’s Seafood. If you go, order the She Crab soup, it was the best I’ve ever eaten!
I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with ...
This morning we went to the Fountain of Youth, which is a Spanish dig site. It was home to the first white settlement in America.
1. A musket firing
2. The planetarium (to show how early explorers navigated)
3. A canon firing (it was loud)
4. The Fountain of Youth spring (it tasted sulphuric)
5. A native Indian village (an old Indian burial site)
6. Mission de Numbers (the earliest ...
We had a sleep in and then went out to the Fountain of Youth which is where America was first settled. We went and saw how to work a musket. After that we saw a canon. It was very loud when it was fired. We saw some shelters of some Indians that once lived here.
Today we went on a Segway Tour.
1. Flagler College (the first hotel that had electricity)
2. A cathedral (it had a pipe organ with the most pipes in the world)
3. A popsicle shop (it had home made popsicles that were delicious)
4. A house on fire (it nearly took the chocolate shop!!!)
After lunch went to a animal rescue and rehabilitation park for exotic ...
We went on segway tour. You were meant to be 12 to go on but the man let me go on after he gave me a little test. It was easy to balance on but hard to get off and on because it felt like you could trip over. We rode around the old buildings. There was one that was on fire and it had just been built. There was the Flagler College which was the first hotel and a very big old church which had fancy paintings and stained glass ...

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.
