A new management contract has been announced for Hilton Garden Inn Jacksonville/Ponte Vedra.

Tampa-based McKibbon Hospitality, an award-winning hotel management company, has added the local hotel to its portfolio, which includes 83 hotels located throughout the United States with more than 10,000 guest rooms.

“We are pleased to add the Hilton Garden Inn Jacksonville/Ponte Vedra to our management portfolio,” said McKibbon Hospitality President Randy Hassen. “This new opportunity allows us to expand our presence in the Jacksonville area and provide our guests with the highest level of service and warm hospitality.” 

The 127-room Hilton Garden Inn is located at 45 Tournament Players Club Blvd., within the Sawgrass Village Shopping Center. It is positioned at the entrance to TPC Sawgrass, home of THE PLAYERS Championship, and is near the new PGA Tour headquarters.
