My parents (Nona and Pops to my kids!) took our family here to spend some time with their Grandchildren for the weekend. Everyone had a blast! I wish this place was around when I was a kid, I would have had a ball! I have an 8 year old and a 3 month old and beleive it or not, everything ran smoothly. We wanted to go here for the indoor water park. The heat and the sun are too much for the baby to be in all day, making vacationing difficult this summer. Having our fun indoors was awesome! The water park was much better than I was expecting. The slides were great and there were plenty of activities like the fun house for my 8 year old to run around in if we weren't able to go on a slide with her. Plus with the water park being part of the hotel, I was able to go back and forth to the room with the baby as needed. They have these fantastic wrist bands that work as a room key and credit card (adults only!) so you don't have to worry about carrying these items with you to the park. The outdoor pool had arts and crafts set up which was a nice change of pace when the 8 year old was getting tuckered out in the water. The lobby of the hotel does story time at night and the animated charachters in the clock tower come to life and do a quick show. There is a starbucks and a candy shop right in the lobby as well. We used the public bathrooms a few times in the lobby and the waterpark with the baby and everything was clean every time. The hotel also has a game called MagiQuest. You purchase a magic wand and in each hallway of the hotel the kids can use their wand to animate the pictures, gems, trees, etc. Each thing they animate sends them to their next spot, sort of like a treasure hunt. It is a very safe place and we noticed alot of the older kids playing the game with their siblings and the parents relaxing in the hallway lounges. There is a nice big arcade and two spas; one for kids and one for adults. We only stayed two days so we didn't get to use the spa but we will when we return. The buffet there is a bit expensive but we still enjoyed our breakfast. There is an ice cream parlor right in the hotel as well and there are plenty of local places that deliver less expensive fare. There are also plenty of chains close by that are family friendly like Red Robin and Friendly's but you really don't need to leave the hotel unless you want to. We did one day for a few hours to outlet shop. The outlets are close by and have an enormous selection of stores. Our room itself at the hotel was great as well. We selected a loft and my husband and I stayed downstairs with the kids while my parents stayed upstairs with their own half bath. The hotel also provided a name brand pack & play for the baby. The toiletries provided were also great! The adults received Vanilla and the kids received bubble gum scented. Our room also had a fireplace, balcony overlloking the pool, living room area, and kitchenette.
