Legoland California officially rolled out its first U.S.-based hotel with a splashy grand opening Friday morning. The three-story, 250-room hotel puts Legoland among the ranks of the true amusement resort destinations 14 years after it first started in this San Diego County city as just an amusement park. Adjacent to the park's main entrance, the hotel gives guests immediate access to the 128 acres featuring amusement rides, water park and full-size aquarium.

Check out the photos in that article. Those rooms are awesome. I had no idea they were going all out like this.
It looks pretty cool for someone who appreciates stuff like that. I just don't get the fascination with Lego though. As a toy, it's fun, but I don't want to see Lego bricks 24 hours a day. lol
I think it's pretty nifty, but I miss the gold ol' days when Lego kept things relatively simple. I think they started trying to make things look too realistic by turning what once took 10 pieces into one big piece when the blocky look was always what made Lego so awesome.
With that said, their sculpting efforts are just crazy fantastic.
I fail to see how this will be successful when there wasn't a hotel there before.
Those rooms look amazing. I wonder if those are special top of the line rooms, or if they're all like that.
They now have three gates there, besides Legoland proper, there is now an aquarium, and a waterpark. There are a lot of people with younger children that after they do Disneyland and DCA don't necessarily want to go all the way to Seaworld (there is nearly an hour's difference in the drive between the two). They have developed Legoland into a destination resort.
To each their own I guess, the hotel actually looks super annoying to me from the pictures and videos I've seem. Makes me feel like I'm trapped in a kid's cartoon. Now get me a Martini and get off my lawn!
