Legoland Hotel — the hotel that bricks built
If spending your day surrounded by LEGOs isn’t enough, you can lay your head at the hotel that bricks built—but don’t worry, your pillow won’t be made of plastic. Opened in 2015, the Legoland Hotel is steps from the park entrance and boasts 152 rooms, all of which have king-size beds in the adult sleeping area and a separate kids’ bedroom with bunk beds and its own entertainment center.
Standard rooms sleep five, while VIP suites can accommodate up to nine; both include mini-fridges, coffeemakers, multiple TVs, and free Wi-Fi. Each hotel floor is themed to a different LEGO genre—Pirate, Adventure, Kingdom, or Friends—and you can upgrade to a premium themed room for additional in-room decor; even the elevators get in on the act with a disco light and sound show.
A daily character buffet breakfast is included free of charge for Legoland Hotel guests
Legoland Hotel guests can take advantage of a daily character buffet breakfast at Bricks Restaurant (included in the room charge) and Bonus Brick Time early entry to select attractions in the park, along with character meet-and-greets, games, and model-building parties in the evening.
Bricks also offers a character buffet dinner ($20 for adults; $13 for children ages 7–12; $8 for children ages 3–6), and parents can unwind with a cocktail at the Skyline Café while their kids play in the lobby.
Master Model Builder Workshops are also popular, so be sure to sign up for one of the limited spots at registration as soon as you check in. The pool and splash-play areas are attractive, if not especially elaborate, with fun floating foam bricks to build with and full waterside bar service.
Rack rates at the Legoland Hotel can be steep, starting around $120 for a parking lot view in the slow season and going up to $500 or more a night, plus a $20-per-day resort fee and an optional $20-per-stay valet parking fee.
