LEGO Hotel
LEGO Hotel & Detailed Interior
About this creation
LEGO model of a 40000-brick 53-apartment luxury hotel with detailed interior. The design is not based on any particular hotel, although I was inspired to build a hotel after watching De Niro and McElhone visit the hotel in the movie Ronin.

I wanted to build something that was somewhat architecturally extravagant without being too over the top - it should still look like a hotel and not a cathedral! The scale is designed to be Minifig scale, although the usual limitations on brick count and size meant that I've had to limit the extravagance more than I would have liked, especially on the interiors since most of the rooms are a little on the small side. One advantage to the smaller size is that none of the rooms should need any central support pillars to hold the ceiling up!

The hotel features include:
Driveway, Fountain, Landscaping, Main Entrance, Lobby & Reception, Atrium, Lounge, Restaurant, Piano Bar, Ballroom, Public Toilets, Service Area, Kitchen, Pantry, Laundry/Boilerroom, Admin Office, Glass Snackbar, Gymnasium, Games Room, 2 Function Rooms, Verandah, Gardens & Swimming Pool Area, Rooftop Fire Escapes, Twin Elevator Shafts & Fully Functional Stairwells, 30 Single Guest Rooms, 21 Double Guest Rooms, and 2 Penthouse Suites.

Built with MLCad and rendered with POV-Ray (nothing to do with LDD) over a 4 month period.
The Hotel Front




















The Hotel Rear
The rear of the hotel includes a service access road and a verandah leading to an elevated garden and swimming pool area that is designed to be private and out of sight from passers-by at street level.

Quoting Alex Sonny You sure live up to your name! This is the ultimate digital lego display! The biggest and most perfect model I've ever seen, at least. And because it's done in LDraw (I think) I respect it that much more, because I worked wit LDraw before switching to LDD (simplicity of use) and I know how hard it is to model stuff there. It would take me hours to comment in each detail, so I'll just say it is perfect as a whole! Really remarkable work.
Thanks. Yeah, unfortunately it takes some skill to get these to render on my 1.5GHz 768MB 32-bit PC. It should be much easier on a modern fast machine with 8GB ram and with 64-bit version of POV-Ray. It's near the top of my list for when I win the lottery. After the Lamborghini...

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 I managed the elevator doors to work, not easy
I actually had a plan to drive all the elevator mechanisms from 2 pulley wheels at the top (one to raise/lower elevator, one to open both the elevator door and the door on the current floor). But sadly I ran out of room, and being a virtual model, would have no way of proving it could work!
Quoting cyberfrank 2010 just out of curiosity, how much would it cost to build it? I remember when I used ldd, that, it gave a bill of construction when you asked, can you do that with your system? I guess it s about $10 000, lol.
Don't have that function. Wouldn't expect it to be anywhere accurate anyway. But $10,000 might not be far off lol :)

incredible hotel! I made one, but, I never could do so big, as I only had space for a big grey base plate, after many experiments, I managed the elevator doors to work, not easy, I m blown away by the recreation rooms and gym, fantastic! just out of curiosity, how much would it cost to build it?

Looks like Cafe Corner has a rival! I am building something similar to this one, but on LDD, and I'm done the ground floor. Mine will only have space for 22 guest rooms, because there are more floors but less floor space.

Quoting Nathaniel Chow Best LEGO hotel I have ever seen! This MOC makes the one LEGO released a few years ago look like a joke! Incredible build! :)
True. Unfortunately there wouldn't be any point LEGO releasing a 40000-brick model like this because not enough people could afford it and they'd never recover their development and production costs.

Quoting Andy D This is great! What technique did you use for the siding of the hotel...the horizontal lines?
Thanks. The slatted effect down the exterior walls is just tiles on their sides attached to bricks with studs on their sides - if that's the bit you're talking about.

Quoting William Vandyk Absolutely astounding. The level of detail is frightening. If I had to make one criticism (if I dare) I think the choice of grey ceiling panels may not be the best as they, to my eyes, detract from the rooms as a whole. 5++
Thanks. All the ceilings are actually white, but it's difficult to create artificial lighting that is bright enough to make them look non-grey whilst not saturating the contents of the room with too much brightness.

Quoting Jesse Long Hey, your design is pretty awesome, though I honestly wish that you could afford to take some trips to Edinburgh or Glasgow or one of the other big Scottish cities so that you could learn how to build these things in real life. Now that I have your name, I'm going to mention you to a guy that I think that you'll like...a guy by the name of Sean Kenney. Yes, I do think that you are about on his level when it comes to building things. I hope that he contacts you soon. Keep up the good work, Digital Dreams. I hope that you can build LEGO in real life one day, too.
I do know how to build these things in real life (I used to build with real LEGO). I just can't afford it! Your words are too kind - I don't have the artistic talent of someone like Sean. I have the technical skills most people don't, so I'm putting them to good use the only way I can. Thanks for the comments :D

Quoting Jesse Long Sir, you should get in touch with some people that have built actual LEGO buildings and to make your already impressive hotel even bigger. I would immediately suggest that you work with Mark Stafford and to have him create some all new LEGO elements for a pool table and to make your hotel much bigger, taller, have many more rooms, a bigger dance floor, snack bar, bigger restaurants, more restaurants, a laundry room, restaurant kitchens, a much bigger pool, a play area for the children around the pool, a play area for the children in general, and more decorative front, side, and rear areas of the shrubbery that surrounds the hotel. The people that sponsor Brick Arms in the Twin Cities, as well as the LEGO Store in Bloomington might help you with your cause, too. Your build is definitely a good one but it could be so much bigger and better, too.
Thanks Jesse. I would have thought the people with enough bricks to build this for real would prefer to build their own designs. I'm happy to build virtually because its the only option for me these days.

Thanks. Took a few months. If I were building it for real it would need to be microscale too but in truth I'd love to build it slightly larger than I did so I could improve the decor and add a few extras...
