SpongeBob SquarePants and his cartoon pals may be cavorting soon at a hotel near you. Denver-based Miller Global Properties LLC recently bought out the remaining half ownership of the 777-room Nickelodeon Family Suites by Holiday Inn resort in Orlando, FL and plans to develop more of the kid-themed Nickelodeon hotels, both in the U.S. and abroad, according to a recent report in the Denver Business Journal.

The Orlando property opened in May 2005 at a cost of $120 million. It features two- and three-bedroom KidSuites. The childrens' bedrooms are decorated with Nickelodeon characters. The resort also includes two water parks, a 3,000-square-foot arcade, spa, live shows and poolside entertainment. Two of the resort's biggest attractions are the Character Breakfast in Nicktoons Café, where families can meet some of their favorite Nickelodeon characters; and Studio Nick, a $1-million state-of-the-art theater where kids and parents may get pied or slimed.

According to the Journal, Miller Global has a site under contract for purchase in San Diego and is exploring development in Hawaii and New York City.

Miller Global teamed with Family Suites Hotel Holdings in 2004 to transform central Florida's Holiday Inn Family Suites Resort at Lake Buena Vista into the first-ever hotel based on the Nickelodeon TV channel.
