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.
