Why choose a
SilverDoor Jacksonville apartment?
What is a serviced apartment?
A serviced apartment is a unique blend of hotel
services and home from home accommodation. Our corporate accommodation is
designed to be flexible and adaptable to your needs while travelling on
business. Often the natural instinct when booking accommodation for business
travel is to look at local hotels – but our serviced apartments offer a much
more convenient and homely stay. Just some of the benefits this form of
accommodation offers include:
space. Unlike a busy hotel, our serviced apartments reside in quiet, dedicated
buildings and provide ample living space within designated rooms and areas. This
additional level of privacy allows for a greater sense of homeliness and peace.
The inclusion of separate living spaces means you can always use the space to
suit you, and means that even shared apartments can be enjoyed individually.
You can work, entertain, rest or relax in a spacious and luxurious area of your
own. A fully fitted kitchen allows for totally flexibility of your schedule, as
the option to cook releases you from hotel restaurant timetables.
With additional services coming as standard with many of our apartments, you
can often benefit from on-site amenities during your stay, such as: fitness
centres, car parks, swimming pools, conference rooms, housekeeping, 24-7
reception and more. The majority of these services are included in the cost of
your stay, and make for an even more convenient business trip.
Serviced apartments are much better value than equivalent hotel suites offering
similar space and service. In addition to this immediate saving, our apartments
benefit from a tax reduction beyond a certain duration threshold, meaning our
apartments offer even more amazing value when booked for longer stays. This
makes them ideally suited to colleagues relocating and in need of somewhere to
stay while awaiting permanent housing.
What do I need to know about staying in Jacksonville?
With a population of almost 1 million, Jacksonville is
the most populous city in Florida. Named after Andrew Jackson – the seventh
President of the USA, and also the first military governor of Florida,
Jacksonville was first inhabited by the Timucua people, before it was settled
by the Europeans (in the form of a French fort) in 1564.
With an automated transit system – the Jacksonville
Skyway (monorail) and an Amtrak national passenger rail system running through
the city, Jacksonville is not difficult to traverse via public transport. The
city has its own airport (the Jacksonville International Airport) which is
located 13 miles north of the downtown area, meaning reaching Jacksonville via
domestic air travel is uncomplicated.
Like much of Florida, Jacksonville experiences
typically hot and oppressive summers with heavy cloud cover – with temperatures
reaching up to 90F. Winters are much cooler, though short, and temperatures
between 40 and 32F. The best times of year for warm weather are said to be
between March and May and October and November.
What else is Jacksonville known for?
large deepwater port, Jacksonville is a leading port in the state, and indeed
the country, for importing vehicles. It is also the leading transportation hub
in Florida. The city’s economy is now driven by distribution, financial
services, consumer goods, insurance and other service industries. Thanks to ‘near-shoring’,
many multiple financial institutions have shifted operations from high-scot
addresses to the likes of Jacksonville – and the city economy is prospering for
it. One such example of this move is Deutsche Bank – who located their second
largest base of operations in Jacksonville.
