Things seem to have quieted down on the Waikiki Edition Lawsuit front but now thanks to a tipster, we can turn our full attention to a new hotel lawsuit brewing--this time involving Viacom, Nickelodeon, Family Suites Resorts and again, Marriott.

It turns out Family Suites Resorts, the owners of a Nickelodeon-themed hotel in Orlando, The Nickelodeon Suites Hotel, sued Nick's parent company Viacom last year for allowing Marriott to offer a bunch of Nickelodeon-themed getaways at their hotels throughout Florida. (Remember, we first reported Marriott's partnership with Nickelodeon way back in 2007.)

Apparently, Family Suites has the exclusive rights within 150 miles to operate Nick hotels and any Nick-themed hotel getaways, packages, what have you. Also, they are fired up that there could possibly be other Nick-themed hotels in America that which they have nothing to do with.

Sometimes we forget that Spring Break means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. It’s true, some Spring Breaks don’t involve girls with low self-esteem or the slimy guys who prey on them.

At the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort, for instance, spring break is all about a different, infinitely more wholesome, slime. As in Nickelodeon’s “Slime Time” and “Slimo Bingo.” That’s right — through April 28, kids aged 4 to 12 can live out their spring break fantasies at the resort’s Nickelodeon Activity Zone with full and half-day sessions, which include an appearance by none other than SpongeBob SquarePants. Plus: arts and crafts (pottery painting, jewelry-making), stargazing, a Sonoran desert walk, and a “Nick After Dark” program with games, a Nickelodeon movie, and dinner (5 to 9 p.m.).

The older-than-12 crowd can live out their own fantasies (sans kiddies). The resort offers golf at the Wildfire Golf Club (with two championship courses by Nick Faldo and Arnold Palmer), the two-story Revive Spa, eight tennis courts, a Lazy River (pictured), and the Wii-equipped Vista Lounge.

The Nickelodeon NAZ Club Extravaganza Package starts at $189 per night and includes a deluxe room, daily breakfast with SpongeBob SquarePants, free meals for kids under 12 at Blue Sage Restaurant, and more Nickelodeon goodness.
