A Look Inside LEGOLAND's New Castle Hotel

You don’t have to be a king or a queen to stay in this castle. LEGOLAND’s Castle Hotel is opening at the Carlsbad resort next Friday, and staff says it will increase revenue for the city. The new 250-room hotel is the second at the theme park and is located just steps from the entrance. Julie Estrada, who works for LEGOLAND, says even though most of the rooms don’t have beds yet, they’ll be ready.

We know the interest is there. Our bookings are already doing really well through May and June.”  The lowest rate offered by the resort is $205 a night in the offseason. Photo Credit: NBC 7
