Yes I did see something on the web a few days ago. I think I will post a picture of the new one with my post just to show how great progress and growth advances design and appeal.

Oh my gosh, talk about disappointment! Why do things have to be changed when they were fine before?!

UGH... So sad. I remember I used to have an actual Fisher Price Holiday Inn play set from the 70's, Retro wavy sign and all!

My wife and I just argued about the signs. Compromise: New sign with old font. I'd still rather have the old signage though....

I wonder how much a design consultant was paid to come up with this "improvement". Obviously he was in on the joke. Doesn't it look like a giant screw?
