New Legoland Hotel aims for brick bliss

The Legoland California resort adds a massive hotel filled with millions of Lego bricks. Take a tour with us.

It doesn't take long to see that the new 250-room Legoland Hotel in Carlsbad, Calif., is a special place for fans of the iconic building toy. As visitors drive up to the colorful entrance, a Lego tower greets them with an impressive facade of giant minifigures and a 400,000-piece smoke-breathing dragon.

Once inside, the Lego experience multiplies as nearly every foot of the hotel contains brick-themed decor. Guests can choose from three types of themed rooms, including pirate, adventure, and kingdom styles. It's a bricktravaganza.

In the following gallery, Crave goes inside the newly minted hotel that contains many special Lego play areas, themed restaurants, and other amenities ready to inspire the imagination.
