Accommodations for the 2024 ACS Annual Meeting will be hosted beachfront at both the Casa Marina and the Margaritaville Hotels in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. The Casa Marina Hotel in Jacksonville Beach, FL, which will be the headquarters hotel for the ACS meeting, was established in 1925 and is a member of Historic Hotels of America. This beachfront, boutique hotel features 16 parlor suites (the ACS contracted weekday rate is $189 + taxes and fees) and 7 standard deluxe rooms (the ACS contracted weekday rate is $139 + taxes and fees). The hotel’s third floor features a rooftop bar and restaurant. The rooms optionally have a view of the Atlantic Ocean; the hotel also offers nearby parking. The hotel’s address is 691 1st Street, N, Jacksonville Beach, FL 32250 (telephone 904-270-0025). The Casa Marina does not have a direct link to the ACS room block, so you must use the above telephone number.

Because of the limited number of sleeping rooms at the Casa Marina, ACS has also contracted with the Margaritaville Hotel, which is across the street. This hotel stands as a contrast for those who prefer their amenities modern. This 202-room hotel opened its doors in 2021 and has many rooms with oceanfront views and patios (The ACS contracted room rate is $177.65 + taxes & fees +$27/day parking). The hotel has a spectacular pool, a fitness center, and three restaurants including the LandShark Lookout and the LandShark Bar & Grill. The hotel’s address is 715 1st Street, N, Jacksonville Beach, FL 32250 (telephone 904-222-0222).

Scroll through the calendar to the meeting dates in April and instead of “X” on each day will be the room rate for that evening.

Both hotels are just steps from the beach and a very short walk to the Jacksonville Pier for a refreshing walk or some relaxing fishing. Nearby attractions include family friendly Adventure Landing water park and entertainment complex. There is nightlife at the trendy Atlantic Beach and Jacksonville features a wonderful zoo, in addition to many cultural and natural attractions. Our group rate is available by calling each hotel and saying you are with the Association of Clinical Sciences or by clicking on the link below and booking reservations by March 2nd, 2024 at Margaritaville Hotel and by March 19th, 2024 for the Casa Marina. However, the Casa Marina is small and will fill up quickly, so don’t wait that late.
