The hotel at Station Park is a Hyatt Place. They are a mid-level hotel, but this one is pretty busy due to Plural Sight and Vista Outdoor having their corporate headquarters in the same complex, along with the shopping and restaurants.

As far as what you will see from Farmington City, they have an agreement with Lagoon that allows a lot of their improvements to pass below the radar, since the uses are conforming uses for the zoning of the park. They would not go through City Council unless they are particularly extreme. At this point, they have approval for virtually anything they would want to build, ride-wise. A hotel would be a non-conforming use though and would require council approval. With the two hotels in Farmington though, I can't see an in-park hotel ever happening now.

Makes sense they would have some degree of freedom of building structures at the park. Otherwise it would be annoying to have to get every little thing approved.

I didn't see anything when I drove by on Christmas but I was in the southbound lane. Maybe it's a show building for a new ride?

I think my post may have been a little misleading. They still have to get building permits and approvals for structures, but they don't need to go before the City Council as a matter of public record, since they exist as a conforming use. Even if they did have to go before the Council, they can keep it quiet through confidentiality agreements. It is common practice for businesses looking to locate in an area to require confidentiality from City Planners and councils.

Does anything in this pic seem out of the ordinary?

Interesting to say the least. I've never seen them cover it in the winter. Maybe it is getting some much needed love as it is 13 years old. I would love if they got rid of the walls around it. With out the high pressure shows the walls are just an annoyance.

Looks like the games behind it are getting some love too.

I would like that. If not hopefully the walls are taken down.

I don't remember.her the stones that surround the outside of the tarp. They look too big to be what's holding down the tarp.
