WINTER HAVEN, FL—During a groundbreaking ceremony held yesterday, LEGOLAND officials announced that its latest LEGOLAND Hotel will open in 2015 and will be located here.
The announcement was made alongside community leaders at the site where the hotel will be built, directly to the left of LEGOLAND Florida’s entrance, just steps from Lake Eloise.
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.
Welcoming guests with a multicolored exterior and entrance, the four-story LEGOLAND Hotel will feature 152 brightly colored rooms and suites; LEGO decor; interactive play areas; a pool; and a restaurant.
“The opening of a LEGOLAND Hotel will transition LEGOLAND Florida from a single-day visit theme park to a multi-day resort destination,” stated LEGOLAND Florida General Manager Adrian Jones. “This will serve as a catalyst for future economic development in Polk County.”
