US: The Residence Inn by Marriott Jacksonville-Mayo Clinic area opened in May with a focus on guest well-being and helping patients transition from hospital life to home life.

The hotel is a Marriott franchise owned by Hotel Development Partners and managed by Concord Hospitality Enterprises.

The City of Jacksonville approved plans for this 155-suite hotel in August of 2019, and, since then, it has been under construction to create a guest-focused, special care environment. The hotel has put a number of measures in place to promote a healthy environment for all kinds of guests on extended stays.

The hotel is situated in a central location, as it is a quarter of a mile away from the Mayo Clinic and four miles from the beach, as well as a shopping area. The hotel also offers a complimentary shuttle to the Mayo Clinic for guests who need it.

The Residence Inn has numerous other amenities targeted to aid those who have recently been in the hospital. The hotel offers grocery delivery, as well as equipment that is easier for patients to use at the gym. Additionally, the Residence Inn offers the Claudette Gerhold Gallery. This gallery is a space for patients to socialise with each other and relax.

Nursing and companionship services are available in the hotel, even for in-suite visits, through American In-Home Care, a nurse registry in Florida.

The hotel was constructed with clean air and a safe environment in mind to enhance guest well-being. Allen O’Brien, CEO of Hotel Development Partners said: “Our goal is to deliver peace of mind, while maintaining safety and cleanliness, for all of our guests during their stay. The size and finishes of each guest suite set this new property apart from other extended-stay hotels in Northeast Florida. A dehumidifying and cooling system deliver fresh air to each individual guest suite, which significantly minimizes shared air. In addition, the highest quality materials have been used to reduce dust particles, working in conjunction with an enhanced cleaning regimen to ensure impeccable cleanliness."
