Orange County Legoland opens first fully themed hotel in the Northeast
The first-ever fully themed hotel in the Northeast is now open at Legoland.
The Goshen hotel features Lego-lined walls, disco elevators and a mega theme park next door.
"Everything we do here is designed for kids, right when you walk in from the lobby,” says hotel director Scott Case.
The $69 million hotel opened to select guests this week and officially opens to the public on Aug. 6.
The hotel and theme park are expected to draw millions of tourists. Its 250 Lego-themed rooms are expected to be a fan favorite.
"Pirates, Kingdom, Lego friends and Lego Ninjago. Each room has its own area for kids where they have their own TV and Lego bricks that they can play with,” says Case.
The hotel director tells News 12 both the hotel and resort are a tourism engine for the Hudson Valley.
The duo is expected to generate millions of dollars in hotel tax and employ 150 people.
“Legoland Resort has been amazing for so many people, bringing in a lot of jobs. We have kids as young as 16 working here in the hotel, lifeguards and bellmen and front desk,” says Case.
The fully themed hotel also offers a restaurant, bar, arcade and gift shop.
Room prices begin at $279 per night. Check-in is contactless and cleaning is enhanced.
