The Carling is the rebirth of the historic Roosevelt hotel, originally built in 1926. The Vestcor Companies has painstakingly restored and renovated many of the fascinating original architectural features of this downtown Jacksonville landmark, including the marble staircase, terrazzo floors and the grand Palladian windows. The 1937 addition to the building has been converted into a two-story commercial arcade with access through the building to Monroe Street. The Carling is a distinctive home that blends the enduring grandeur of a time gone by with today's finest amenities to create a unique experience in carefree metropolitan living. Situated in a premier downtown location, The Carling offers a wealth of amenities, including a 1,000 square foot state-of-the-art fitness center with complete circuit equipment and cardio theater.
