Legoland California just opened the doors to a hotel that provides brick-filled relaxation and entertainment for visitors to the massive resort. Step inside, won't you?

Main entrance

Last week, the Carlsbad, Calif., Legoland resort unveiled its own Legoland Hotel -- a three-story, 250-room lodging likely to be nirvana for any devout Lego fan.

Located next to the massive resort, Legoland's hotel offers visitors three different room themes -- pirate, adventure, or kingdom -- that play off the associated Lego product line. Other amenities include specially themed restaurants, interactive play areas, and many other effects with Lego accents.

In total, the hotel contains 3,422 Lego models created out of 3 million Lego bricks. Take a virtual tour of the Legoland Hotel in our gallery of images courtesy of Legoland California and My Modern Met's Alice Yoo.

Bricks everywhere

A large mock pipe -- pretending to disperse a water-like flow of Lego bricks -- captures the imagination and curiosity of a nearby child.

Hollywood bricks

This collection of Hollywood actors' autographs mimics the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame. Some of the signatures seen here include those of Cate Blanchett, Jim Carrey, Will Ferrell, Calista Flockhart, and Jon Favreau.

Ahoy matey

An enormous castle and halved pirate ship provide a perfect place for kids (or adventuresome adults) to play. A pirate flag raises upon turning the captain's wheel, and a loud cannon blast sounds when the flag reaches the top.

Crazy chefs

Here are some of the many massive Lego chefs located in Bricks Family Restaurant. It appears they've run into a major problem while trying to make some sweets.

Adventure room

The premium adventure room contains several elements -- such as themed wallpaper and large jungle animal Lego creatures -- that will tickle fans of the safari series. Each room contains a treasure chest that visitors can unlock by following a series of clues hidden nearby.

Another calamity

At the Legoland Hotel, there's no shortage of amusing Lego figures, including this chef who seems to have lost control of some overflowing ice cream. It's probably best to steer clear of this brick-filled treat.
