Hotel of the week
Legoland Castle Hotel
More than 3 million bricks went into the making of the new hotel at Legoland California—and that’s only counting the Lego displays inside, said Lori Weisberg in The San Diego Union-Tribune. Built to resemble a Lego castle, the 250-room structure is the second hotel located in the theme park, and it caters to children, with princess- and knight-themed rooms, a throne with a whoopee cushion, and a jester door that tells bad knock-knock jokes. You’ll also find some 21,000 Lego models scattered around the premises—“and that’s even before a visit to Legoland next door.”
