Nick Hotel to drop Nickelodeon branding and become a Holiday Inn

by Matt Roseboom

Nick Hotel

UPDATE (4/6/15): The Nickelodeon Suites Resort will now be keeping its Nick theme through May 31, 2016, at which point it will become the Holiday Inn Resort Orlando Suites – Waterpark.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Laser challenge will be closed April 18-22, 2016 to undergo a change into the Batman Laser Challenge. In addition, the 4-D theater now has a new lineup of short films available including Angry Birds, Looney Tunes, Ice Age, Rio and Thomas & Friends.

Original story presented below.


Starting on April 18, the Nickelodeon Suites Resort will be no more. The resort itself will remain, and the water play area, 4D theater and laser maze will remain, but the Nickelodeon branding will be gone.

The branding remains through April 17, 2016, but the next day, the resort will be renamed Holiday Inn Resort Orlando Suites – Waterpark. For the past few weeks some of the Nickelodeon branding has been removed from around the resort, and the outside of the hotel is in the process of being repainted. The Nickelodeon cartoon graphics have already been removed from many of the rooms as part of a $30 million renovation of the resort. The Lagoon Pool and Café are being rebuilt and are closed through Feb. 29.

The resort posted this on their website:

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.

For more information, or to make reservations for a stay before the rebranding is complete, visit nickhotel.com or contact your travel agent, such as MEI-Travel.com.

The article says the hotel has been in operation for 16 years, but the video shows a “10 year celebration” held last year. Math doesn’t add up.

Sorry. It should have read 11 years.

Any idea were we can visit the Turtles? We wanted to book the Nickhotel just to see the turtles but due to the rebranding we won´t. Thanks from Germany

We don’t know anywhere in Orlando you’ll be able to meet them after the Nick Hotel branding ends.

A pity! I had planned on bringing my 6-yr-old to the hotel this year to see SpongeBob.

Once the Nickelodeon Suites Resort transitions to the Holiday Inn Resort, Nickelodeon’s presence in Orlando will conclude.

There will still be a very small vestige of Nickelodeon’s past in Orlando left behind. It has been noted that there are hints of Nickelodeon still to be found within the buildings that once comprised the Nickelodeon Studios complex at Universal Studios. Exactly how long that will be the case is anybody’s guess.

I am so disappointed that it will no longer be nickelodeon hotel. We were there in Oct and had a blast. All my 5 yr old talks about is going back to see the turtles. She’s a big fan. Very sad day.
