USA’s first Legoland hotel opens

Lobby is play area dominated by Lego pirate ship

The USA’s first hotel dedicated to the popular Lego brand of children’s building blocks has opened in California. The three-floor, 250-room property is located in the Legoland California Resort, a 28-acre theme park in Carlsbad.
The hotel is not made out of construction toys itself, but it is very colourful and has a smoke-breathing, 400,000-brick “welcome dragon” at the entrance. The reception, which has a lowered check-in desk where kids are given welcome packets, is created from a wall made from more than 6000 Lego mini-figures.
The lobby is a play area dominated by a Lego pirate ship and a moat while the restaurant, as NBC puts it, “is dotted with humorous vignettes showing Lego chefs at work, a Lego pasta machine and large models of Lego foods, including Lego spaghetti and a big bowl of Lego ice-cream”.
Each guest room has a treasure chest filled with surprises that can only be unlocked after a treasure hunt is completed.
