The location proximity to Legoland is very good with a backdoor entrance of guests only. The view of the fireworks is the best out there since they are launched pretty much from the hotel parking lot. The shuttle drivers to and from legoland should you prefer that to walking are all very nice and service is very prompt and fast(although, the hotel wasn't crowded during our stay, so might be a bit slower during holiday peak periods). There is a decent outlet Carlsbad Premium Outlets a mile away which has decent stores and prices, just go online to get the vip coupon book or sale coupons free, and see whats there. Its about 30 min away from the san diego wild animal park, and just bit farther from the san diego zoo or airport with no traffic. Free wireless in hotel due to resort fee, and printer available in the lobby w/3 computers. Club lounge does have beer, wine, and drinks in evening, and some breakfast...food quality though is the worst of any club lounge i've been to so far with only 1 hot choice for breakfast or evening, both looking awful...but maybe it was just during my stay. With platinum status, got basic club access and better view room, not much else. Parking was convenient as reasonable cost i suppose since i didn't have to park at legoland. If you need tickets to legoland, i recommend buying the 3 month pass from costco as it is cheaper than a 1 day admission at the park. Aquarium for legoland was small and not really worth $10 admission price for members, but it rained 1 day of our trip so we spent an hour there. During a current promo, the membership pass also gave me a few free admission passes that expire in march of 2009 and free entry coupons for friends...I used the coupons to help some fellow guests to free admission for the day saving them over $200 bucks easily...didn't get the chance to use the free passes but might give them to some friends perhaps if i find someone going soon.
