Yes, you read the headline right, Cartoon Network are planning to open up a resort hotel inspired by their shows next year, as part of a deal with Palace Entertainment, and it’ll be located Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The hotel will feature a whopping 165 bookable rooms, an interactive lobby, outdoor and indoor pools, water play zone, outdoor amphitheater, lawn games, fire pits, game rooms and play areas.
This all sounds pretty awesome, imagine staying at a hotel that celebrates Cartoon Network’s most popular content of today! It’ll appeal to not only children, but adults who haven’t let go on their kid in their heart. The interactive lobby part is pretty unique for a hotel too, I was curious what this actually meant, and CN President Christina Miller has explained “With just the right mix of technology, design and animation, we’re aiming to bring our characters to life in a way that we haven’t seen done before”, which is vague but exciting.
I also like the sound of an outdoor amphitheater, that could be an awesome part of the hotel, especially if they screen movies owned by Cartoon Network for guests, or maybe marathons of shows. Even if parents aren’t fans of Cartoon Network, they can enjoy swimming in pool, or maybe visit the wine bar in the evening, and there’s even games to play too.
However, it’s a shame that only their modern popular shows will be the basis for design ideas, with no indication that 90’s TV series will be make appearances. I get that this is to appeal to the zeitgeist, with such series as “The Powerpuff Girls” reboot, “Adventure Time”, and “We Bare Bears” making CN tonnes of revenue. It’s just, sometimes I feel like Cartoon Network don’t really embrace their legacy that often, cartoons like “Cow and Chicken” and “Dexter’s Laboratory” are shows that put the company on the map, why be ashamed of that?
Of course, I’m personally at a disadvantage, being a UK resident, but if I ever plan to visit Pennsylvania after next year, then the Cartoon Network hotel would certainly be a resort for me to consider staying in. The Hotel will be located very close to Dutch Wonderland Family Amusement Park too, so a trip to Lancaster could be a blast for those who want a fun Pennsylvania experience.

There was a hotel simular to this, The Nick Hotel (Nickelodeon) which opened in the early 2000’s in Orlando. It had a character breakfast, decorated rooms, a 4D cinema, two pools, laser tag, you name it. It was great for kids, but there was very little for the adults, who may have been paying, but felt shortchanged. I hope the CN hotel will learn from the Nick hotel’s mistakes.
The wine bar will resolve everything xD
