In May 2017, Innisfree Hotels took ownership of the Seaside Amelia Inn – a boutique hotel on Fernandina Beach in the quaint coastal town of Amelia Island, Fla.

The 46-room hotel overlooking the Atlantic Ocean features the following amenities …

  • Newly renovated suites and studios

  • Oceanfront rooftop sun deck

  • Outdoor swimming pool

  • Daily Southern home-style breakfast

  • Grab-and-go sundries center

  • Meeting space + activity corner

  • Complimentary beach chair and umbrella rentals

  • Convenient location to Amelia Island attractions

  • Free Wi-Fi

  • Free parking

The 12-year-old hotel is one of Innisfree’s only boutique-style properties – an unexpected fit for

the company, which specializes in markets like Fernandina Beach.

“This property will be an anchor for Innisfree in a market that is highly underdeveloped,” says Jason Nicholson, Vice President of Operations for Innisfree Hotels. “After developing the Seaside Amelia Inn to its best potential, we can look outside this property for opportunities to build or develop additional hotels in this cool, casual community.”

The Seaside Amelia Inn offers one of the best locations in town, positioned on the beach and near the Historic Downtown. It is walking distance to stylish local shops and restaurants, as well as a small outdoor workout park and Fort Clinch State Park.

Olivia Hoblit will continue in her three-year post as General Manager of the hotel. A native of Amelia Island for more than a decade, Hoblit serves on the board of Florida First Coast of Golf and as Vice President in Lodging for Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association’s First Coast Chapter.
