Hotel Review: Nick Hotel Orlando FL

There is very little bad you can say about this resort.  It was exactly what we expected, down to the room layout and water park amenities.  You can read all about what you’ll get at Nick Hotel at their website.  Note that Nick Hotel is run by Holiday Inn’s parent Intercontinental Hotels Group, and as such Priority Club members will get points or miles for staying here.

Now down to the nitty gritty details:

The family suites are roomy.  Big even, in my opinion.  There’s a big LCD TV in the living room, and a tube T.V. in both the master bedroom and the kids room.  The bunk beds include lights so the kids can stay up and read in their beds if they want.  Like Disney resorts, this is a big spread with the various buildings getting increasingly further from the front lobby.  But that’s OK, they all circle around the pool area, which is the focal point of this resort anyway.

The pool/waterpark is a big, fun place that will have something for everyone.  The only complaint we had about the waterpark is that the main pool (the one with the zero-depth pool, for toddlers like ours) was closed for planned maintenance in the middle of the day (4PM) for an hour to 90 minutes while some guy walked around and took water samples.  This is something that can and should be done at night, not during prime play time.  But that’s OK, we lived with it.  

The table service restaraunt in the food court was great – we ate their for dinner the first day and (character) breakfast the next day.  The character breakfast was great – uncrowded, lots of Nick characters including Spongebob, Dora, Chucky, and others I can’t name and plenty of the characters for each guest.  We had a great time, and the pictures are in the gallery

The only problem I had was that when I checked out, there was a PPV movie on our bill that we didn’t order.  This happens to frequent travellers enough at many hotels, and telling them I didn’t order it got it removed right away.  

We would definately go back to Nick Hotel, and spend more than one day there.
