Nickelodeon Hotel to Become Holiday Inn Resort Orlando

One of Central Florida's family-friendly resorts is about to receive some major changes that will include a new name, new theming, and much more.
The Nickelodeon Hotel (located just a few miles away from one of Walt Disney World's entrances) just celebrated its 10th anniversary, but it will be the last time the location will celebrate a milestone under that name. Indeed, the resort will become the Holiday Inn Resort Orlando Suites – Waterpark beginning April 17.

Here's an official statement regarding this major renovation project, as seen on the resort's website:

"The Nick Hotel has entered into a very exciting phase as we have begun a $30 million renovation of the resort. In January, we unveiled our first newly-renovated suites to our guests. The Lagoon Pool and Café will be rebuilt beginning January 4th and are closed through February 29th.

While the World-Famous Lagoon Pool complex is rebuilt, the Oasis Pool and Slides will be open daily between January 4th and March 1st with live poolside entertainment including shows, slimings and other activities. The Oasis Pool area includes a kids' play area, multi-level water tower, and relaxing poolside cabanas for your enjoyment. A Snack Bar serves sandwiches, snacks, ice cream, and alcoholic drinks. 

The Café in the Mall will undergo a complete makeover. The Nick Hotel dining options provide a flavor fit for every palate, even during the Café refurbishment. From a comfortable all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet at The Mall Buffet Restaurant where you may enjoy meet and greet opportunities with your favorite Nickelodeon characters, to Cravings featuring Starbucks Coffee and Hersey's Hand-Dipped Ice Cream, Antonio’s Pizzeria, Deli & Stuff, or the Lounge Bar with its complete a la carte dining menu.

Effective April 18, 2016, the resort will become the new Holiday Inn Resort Orlando Suites – Waterpark. The resort will continue to be a destination hotel dedicated to imagination, play and exploration for kids and parents alike! The rebranding creates opportunities to bring new features to life, including a newly renovated waterpark, laser maze, 4-D theater lineup and live entertainment in our studio and poolside! We will no longer offer Nickelodeon experiences past April 17, 2016, but will continue to deliver a fun and energetic experience.

The Nick Hotel is offering amazing Deals during January and February with weekday rates starting as low as $79 during this time period.  Check the availability calendar for more details."
