So we made it easy for you to guess the hotel last week. Maybe it was the Lego parrot high up in the corner of the guestroom or maybe it was the hint about the place being next to the theme park. Yet for those of you who are still stumped, we spent a night inside the Adventure room of the just-opened Legoland Hotel, adjacent to the Legoland theme park in Carlsbad, Calif.
If your kids love Legos, they will love this place because there are Legos EVERYWHERE starting with the Lego pit in the hotel's lobby.
While the hotel itself is not costructed out of Legos (would't that be cool?), the hotel doesn't miss an opportunity to display their Lego works of art. Each guestroom features eight Lego sculptures, there's a giant dragon above the hotel entrance guarded by giant Lego characters and another dragon sculpture right when you walk in. The wall behind the check-in desk features hundreds and hundreds of Lego minis, along with a Lego character riding a bicycle (this piece actually moves back and forth and was our fave Lego display of them all.)
In both restaurants, the Skyline Cafe and the Bricks buffet restaurant, there are many cooking-themed Lego sculptures (like a chef working a pasta machine) and out back, there's an interactive dragon sculpture that squirts water and "talks" to its admirers, even commenting on their outfits. (We assume someone is watching on a camera somewhere.) In short, there are Lego sculptures pretty much everywhere you look.
But aside from being a Lego heaven for kids, the hotel is actually built for the kids.
Even more horrifying, witnesses report seeing at least one guest engulfed in flames. Two victims were rushed to the hospital for treatment, and the third was taken to UCSD Medical Center for life-threatening burns. LAist.com reports that two of the injured were inside the room where the explosion occurred and that the other was from the room next door.
News reports state the man and woman inside the room were 'cooking' meth.

Here's why Hard Rock Orlando is a great home base for a visit to Universal Orlando: The vibe is "cool parents", at least that is what we liked to tell ourselves while we were on the grounds.
The giant pool, complete with sand and water slide is such a hit with kids it may be hard to drag them away from the pool and get them to the parks, so save the pool for an end of day activity.
Real rock music, not "Kid's Place Live", permeates the lobby and the common spaces, as it does at all Hard Rock's, however, as expected, this property is far more family friendly than some of the other Hard Rocks. Aside from the pool, kids will also be treated to magic tricks at dinner (Thursday nights) if you eat at Kitchen, the on site restaurant. Oh, and most important? Your room key serves as an express pass at the parks allowing you to avoid the lines -- sweet.
