Jax Hotels Having a Record Month this October
Several recent concerts and sporting events are driving hotel occupancy in hotels in and around the downtown area this October, an unusual time for such impressive numbers. The Hyatt, Omni, Crown Plaza and Hilton Garden Inn have all reported occupancy levels above 90% during this time. One of the major events that was a huge attraction to out of town visitors were 6 concerts by Garth Brooks, the number one selling solo artist of all time. Motley Crue and Alice Cooper also recently played in Jax. The trend is expected to continue thru the end of the month, with concerts by former Beatles members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, a Jaguar home game, and the Florida-Georgia game.
