ORLANDO, Fla. - Nov. 20, 2007 - As the holiday shopping countdown begins, the Nickelodeon Family Suites by Holiday Inn® offers the perfect solution for parents who want to enjoy time with their families while still checking off items on their holiday shopping list. Santa-playing parents will want to book the "Shop, Play and Stay" package at the Nick Hotel to take a break from hectic holiday hustle with stress-free shopping and all the excitement of a family vacation.

Guests who book the package November 25th-December 24th will enjoy:

-The Polar Express- complimentary valet parking at The Mall at Millenia
-Tasty Treats- from Godiva, Starbuck's and P.F. Chang's China Bistro
 -Special Delivery- package shipping service from the hotel*
-Holiday Cheer- a discounted private sliming and access to the Nick After Dark program for kids on select nights
-Warm and Cozy Beds- two-bedroom KidSuites® accommodations
The Nickelodeon Family Suites gets into the holiday spirit with plenty of activities for parents and kids to enjoy together. Guests join their favorite Nickelodeon characters on the Candy Cane Stroll, complete with festive music, treats and photo opportunities. Families will participate in a traditional holiday craft at the Gingerbread House workshop, watch Holiday Dive-In Movies at the Lagoon Pool and sing favorite classic songs at Holiday Karaoke. No visit to the Nick Hotel during the holidays would be complete without a special reading of The Night Before Christmas with Santa Claus himself.

"The Shop, Play and Stay package gives parents a chance to get their holiday shopping done without worrying about the kids being entertained." says Tom Schwinden, director of sales and marketing for the Nick Hotel.
 When it comes time to complete holiday shopping, parents can do so guilt-free knowing that the kids will be enjoying the Nick After Dark** experience, which  includes everything from VIP seating at a Studio Nick show, to a hands-on slime experience and a winter-themed workshop of science experiments with a take-home slime souvenir.

After an enjoyable evening of kid-free shopping at the The Mall at Millenia, parents can also indulge in some holiday pampering with a hand massage from Salon Cielo & Spa and a beauty consultation from the experts at Regis Signature Salon. A post-shopping appetizer at P.F. Chang's China Bistro also awaits, and tired shoppers can rejuvenate on the way back to the hotel with a Starbuck's beverage, all included in the package.
