Many of us did the IHG mail in points promotion that was offered this winter. Looking to burn up some of those 50,000+ points I went looking for IHG waterpark hotel options.
Holiday Inn Club Vacations Orlando – Orange Lake Resort 35,000 points per night or $146 a night. Boasts a lazy river in the twelve acre waterpark and nine restaurants. https://www.ihg.com/holidayinnclubvacations/hotels/us/en/kissimmee/discv/hoteldetail
Holiday Inn Express Brainerd/ Baxter has the connecting Three Bear Waterpark. $225 a night with access to the waterpark. https://www.ihg.com/holidayinnexpress/hotels/us/en/baxter/bwxbb/hoteldetail

I usually travel with a child who likes a pool but loves a water park! We have some Marriott rewards nights to burn so I was trying to figure out what my Marriott water park type hotel options were.
Fairfield Inn and Suites in Gillette Wyoming is a category 2 with several large water slides that go through the building and several pools.
I had earned a category 1-5 certificate with Marriott that was going to expire soon. I had originally planned to use it in Texas to stay at the Casa De Palmas. But then we changed plans and went back to South Padre Island so Daughter could surf one more day. Then I was going to use the certificate for our anniversary, a nice night away somewhere. While throwing nearby cities out to Husband he requested the long weekend we took in Charleston and Savannah instead. So I was going to use it there on a nice hotel and he instead asked for a Bed and Breakfast. More on that here: https://stretchingittotravel.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/foley-house-inn-romantic-savannah-b-b-for-our-anniversary-trip/ I tried but this certificate kept getting pushed aside.
We had until the first of June to use the Marriott certificate and I was not going to lose a free hotel night because our plans kept changing. So we looked at our options and chose to take Daughter to the Fairfield Inn Watervliet in southwest Michigan. On short notice she was able to take a friend along so they could play in the little attached Safari Joe’s Waterpark.
