Merlin Entertainment, owners of the Legoland California amusement park, will seek permission Wednesday from the city's Planning Commission to put a 250-room, Lego-themed hotel on part of their parking lot. One of the Legoland amusement parks in Europe already has its own hotel, and "kids love the themed rooms," Downing added.

Given the location of the park, I'd be a little surprised if the hotel proves to be a success. Seemed like the vast majority of visitors were locals, meaning they'd be going home at the end of the day. I think Merlin might be thinking a "one-size-fits-all" mentality will work. It COULD...but I don't think it would. Then again, the economy might be back on course by the time the hotel would be finished, so maybe that would play in their favor (favour). Combine a good price with some entertainment (Wiggles!), and maybe even an early admission/late-stay policy, and they might pull it off...but it working IS dependent on a more robust economy.
Okay, will the Lego Hotel be bult out of Legos? If so, the beds could be a tand uncomfortable.
