Amelia Island, FL
Overview: For an Amelia Island property, there is quite a bit of ballroom and meeting space available at this hotel.
Ballrooms: There are three ballrooms ranging from the largest, the Magnolia, to the Cumberland, which is the smallest, and a mid-size ballroom called the Amelia Ballroom.
A second ballroom is located in an adjacent building and is more of a standard ballroom.
There also are quite a few breakout rooms but the ballrooms can be split into larger breakout rooms if needed.
Rigging was easy and the ballroom load-in was very easy as well.
Location: Like everything else in Amelia Island, you are a little far from off-property activities. The plus is that you are right on the ocean and the pool area is amazing.
Rooms: I don’t usually comment on hotel rooms, but I thought these were just all right. They reminded me more of a motel room than a luxury hotel, but we (as crew) often don’t get the best rooms, so there may be much better rooms available that we didn’t see.
Signage: The signage at the hotel could use improvement. Many people seemed to be getting lost as they walked around, so good event signage (and a lot of it!) is a must for this property.
Producer’s Notes: From a production standpoint, I thought this was a great property. This is not a resort we see mentioned a lot on short lists for property searches and is one to consider.
