Pet Policy

A trip to Jacksonville isn’t complete without every member of the family. Our location is ideal for your pup, with walking areas along the riverwalk, The Landing and numerous parks around the city for you to explore. Our local beaches are dog-friendly, so visit Atlantic, Neptune and Jacksonville Beach before 9 a.m. and after 5 p.m. with your furry friend. Back in your cozy room, appreciate the special attention we give every guest, with a pet bed and water bowl provided for your best friend’s comfort and convenience.

To make your pet’s stay comfortable, a pet bed & water bowl has been provided for your use in the guest room

A “Pet on Vacation” door hanger is provided for you to maintain outside of your door at all times

Your pet should be on a leash or in a carrying case at all times

Firearms Policy

The safety and security of our guests and associates is of utmost importance to Hyatt. This policy is designed for the protection of our guests and associates, and pertains to the presence of firearms on hotel premises.

Hyatt recognizes that guests or visitors may legally possess firearms for a variety of legitimate purposes. This policy is intended to create a safe environment for all guests and visitors by providing appropriate guidance over the custody of firearms on our premises.

Hotel premises are private property. Guests or visitors of a Hyatt hotel who lawfully are permitted to possess a firearm, may bring such firearm onto hotel premises for storage purposes only. Any guest or visitor who is in possession of a firearm on hotel premises is personally responsible for abiding by all applicable federal, state and local laws with respect to firearms, in the jurisdiction where the hotel is located and ensuring that the firearm is:

  • Unloaded 
  • Secured in a locked, hard-sided firearm container provided by the guest; and securely safeguarded at all times in a guest room (or personal vehicle), except when transporting the firearm into or out of the hotel.

Guests who fail to abide by this policy may be asked to leave the hotel premises. A blanket exception to the restrictions described in this policy statement applies only to law enforcement officers and designated military personnel, who are on-duty and required to carry firearms in the performance of their duties. No exemption to this policy is allowed for private persons, even those licensed and permitted to carry a firearm, and/or where applicable, to conceal-carry a firearm.

Questions concerning this policy, or its implementation may be addressed to Hyatt’s Global Security department.
