Legoland to build themed hotel this year

Legoland California will embark on its costliest expansion ever this year, with the planned construction of a long promised Lego-themed hotel on the park grounds. Park officials would not reveal how much its owner, London-based Merlin Entertainment Group, is investing in the new hotel, although such a project could cost $50 million or more, assuming a cost of roughly $200, 000 a room. The last major investment by the park was just a few years ago, when it spent $20 million on the Sea Life aquarium and an Indiana Jones-like adventure in 1920s Egypt.
