22, 2004 - The Adamís Mark Jacksonville has successfully rebounded from
a pump break that washed out 252 of its 966 rooms. The malfunctioning
pump filled pipes with too much water, causing pressure relief valves on
the 19th floor to open. The 19th floor was consequently flooded with
water that eventually found its way to lower floors initiating approximately
$2 million in damages.
Thanks to the immediate reaction of General Manager, Mark Kaiser and his staff, the damaged rooms will be back in service the week of Dec. 28. The Adamís Mark, the regionís largest hotel, will be fully operational and ready for the upcoming New Yearís Day Gator Bowl and the much-anticipated Super Bowl in February.
All reservations for the Gator Bowl will be honored and the staff eagerly awaits the opportunity to show off the fabulous property.
NFL officials are not alarmed over the flooding, and the Adamís Mark Jacksonville remains the Super Bowl headquarters hotel.
