LEGOLAND management announced that the park has plans to open a LEGOLAND hotel in 2015.
LEGOLAND Florida General Manager Adrian Jones officially announced the park's much anticipated LEGOLAND Hotel alongside community leaders on Thursday, directly to the left of LEGOLAND Florida's entrance, just steps from Lake Eloise where the site is to be built.
"The opening of a LEGOLAND Hotel will transition LEGOLAND Florida from a single-day visit theme park to a multi-day resort destination," said Jones. "This will serve as a catalyst for future economic development in Polk County."
The hotel will have a multicolored exterior and entrance, the four-story LEGOLAND Hotel will immerse families with young children in the world of Legos, as an extension of the theme park experience. The LEGO-themed hotel will feature 152 brightly colored and themed rooms and suites, Lego décor; interactive play areas; a pool and a restaurant.
LEGOLAND Florida Hotel will add 250 construction-related jobs during the construction, and another 250 jobs to its employee base to staff the new hotel upon completion.
This will be the fifth LEGOLAND Hotel in the world joining LEGOLAND California, LEGOLAND Windsor and LEGOLAND Billund hotels. LEGOLAND Malaysia Hotel will soon open its doors.
