Great Wolf will open its newest resort near Williamsburg this week. The massive "log cabin" is a 301-room, all-suite resort that boasts a large indoor water park, several restaurants, an arcade, spa and many other features including what it calls "the atmosphere and adventure of the northwoods."

"the atmosphere and adventure of the northwoods."

with a 4 lane divided hwy in the front yard lol

Actually, the place looks quite impressive, however the BBQ place up the road might wanna consider expansion.

I was impressed by it the other day as I drove by on I-64. You can definetly see it from the highway. Anyone ever try the BBQ place Sam is refering to?

I listened to Great Wolf's Q4/FY 2004 conference call last week. They are really enthusiastic about this property. They report that pre-bookings for it have been very good, and that it's "filling up fast."

Great Wolf's strategy for new property development will be to build destination properties in areas where there are already large draws. This property certainly fits the bill.

I can't wait for opening day (fast approaching). Williamsburg residents have a private preview on April 13th (or 14th - somewhere around there). Oh .. and the BBQ place down the street - Pierce's BBQ Pit .... good food .. not North Carolina good, but definately good BBQ as far as I'm concerned. :)

301 room. huh. the planned PKI one is 401 rooms. Why the extra 1 room?

My guess: 2 stories.

One hotel has 151 rooms per floor, the other has 201 rooms per floor. Then turn one of the ground-floor rooms into the hotel office.

As for why 151/201? That way after subtracting the hotel office, you still have 1 greater than the even hundred instead of one fewer. (301/401 sounds better than 299/399).

That's just my guess, though. :)
