How do you make an awesome trip to Legoland? Stay for the night! This would give kids more than their fill of fun in both the park and water park. And even just a night in the hotel is an attraction in itself. The kiddie fun starts even before you check-in, as you are welcomed by a lobby that spells out “k-I-d-s-r-u-l-e”. Much of the floor is taken up by play areas with a pirate ship and a castle made of large bricks, and a lot of real Lego bricks scattered around for kids to toy around with. Even the check-in counters have thousands of Lego men in their walls.
Going up to the rooms, the kids-rule-this-place theme continues with elevators that play disco music complete disco balls spinning around the ceiling. And when you reach your floor, the door opens to hallways that are decorated to your chosen theme – Pirate, Adventure or Kingdom (we had a Pirate room) – from floor to ceiling. But the biggest treat here is the rooms – or rather, suites.
The Legoland Hotel is probably the most family-oriented, child-friendly hotel anywhere. All suites come with a master bedroom and a separate room with a bunk bed and a pullout bed, and can comfortably fit two adults and 3 children. And with all the themed decors in the room, from wall to wall, any kid would want to call it “home”.
