A week at Orlando's Nickelodeon Suites Resort is like Spring Break at Padre Island for nine-year-olds. Massive Nick toon cutouts keep watch over the arrays of water slides, pools and playgrounds that fill the hotel's two courtyards. Many parents will appreciate the three-room suite layout, which puts the grown-ups behind their own door in their own bedroom. Up to five kids could stay in each suite, with two beds plus a rollaway in the kids' room and a fold-out couch in the living area.
Note that as of January 5, 2009, the Nick hotel is no longer affiliated with Holiday Inn.
Stayed here in 2008 and had an enjoyable time. Stayed again in 2011 and it was so-so. The service seemed worse and little things, like the soaps, were downgraded. But the kids loved it and that's what matters right? If you stay, be wary of the bus service. You don't have much time to catch the bus after the park closes and it doesn't stick around to wait for anyone. The location is awesome. - Alex Varson
