Hotels in Jacksonville, Florida, United States of America - your base to discover the city.
Jacksonville in northeastern Florida is the US's largest city in terms of area, which means it's essential to use your own transport if you want to get around. It is located on the St. John's River but there is an array of Jacksonville beaches 12 miles to the east on the Atlantic Ocean. A vast 1901 fire laid waste to early Jacksonville and thousands of buildings were rebuilt over the next decade. Jacksonville was named for President Andrew Jackson; rather disparagingly, it is also called “the biggest city in South Georgia.”
