One hotel goes off the list and another one comes on!

Ahoy there, matey's! North America's first Legoland Hotel has just pegged its stateside opening for April 5 at the entrance to the Legoland theme park in Carlsbad, California.

Newly released images snapped by Reuters show the lobby of the world's third Lego hotel (there's one in the UK and Denmark) will be staffed by life-sized, Lego-built employees including bell hops and a dragon.

All 250 rooms are decked out "bed-to-toe" in accordance with one of Lego's three most popular product lines (Pirate, Kingdom, or Adventure) and feature "suite" perks like mini fridges, kids-only bunk areas (with separate queen bed for parental units), and in-room treasure hunts. There's also free WiFi, HD flatscreen (plus On Demand), and Lego bricks galore (naturally).

As a super cool added perk, hotel guests will be allowed VIP entry to various rides and attractions at the park before it officially opens.


In addition to a swimming pool, restaurant, and bar (for all us boozy grown-ups!), the hotel is promising to hold Junior Concierge contests (launched last year in the UK), which grant six winners aged 8-12 a free weekend stay and lego products out the wahzoo in exchange for sharing their passion for the park with other young guests.

Opening rates start at $199 at night. You can book online or call 877-LEGOLAND (877.534.6526).
