  1. Does anyone else feel like the child in them just died?

  2. Wasn't this property a Holiday Inn Resort before changing over to Nick Suites? I remember staying there and it had a train theme.

  4. I'm starting to despise blue and white, since that seems to replace anything Nickelodeon.
    So what on Earth is gonna happen to the time capsule now?

  5. It looks like they sorta, kinda copied the Cabana Bay look.

  6. @CaptJapan: I just read on Wikipedia that the time capsule is supposed to be sent to the current Nickelodeon studios in Burbank, California in the event that the Nick Hotel in Florida closes. Where it will be opened in 2042.
