Winter Haven, FL — LEGOLAND® Florida will soon be turning into a multi-day resort destination with the addition of a hotel next to the theme park's main entrance. Park General Manager Adrian Jones today officially announced that the park's much anticipated LEGOLAND Hotel will open in 2015.
"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 announcement was made alongside community leaders with a ceremonial groundbreaking moment at the site where the hotel will be built, directly to the left of LEGOLAND Florida's entrance, just steps from Lake Eloise.
LEGOLAND Hotel will welcome guests with a multicolored exterior and entrance that will immerse families with young children in the world of LEGO®. The four-story, themed hotel will offer 152 themed rooms and suites, with LEGO décor, interactive play areas, a pool and restaurant.
This will be the fifth LEGOLAND Hotel in the world joining LEGOLAND California, LEGOLAND Windsor and LEGOLAND Bilund hotels. Another hotel is presently under construction at LEGOLAND Malaysia and will open soon.
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.
