Looking for a special treat for that little princess in your life? How about a trip to Manhattan to experience the famed Fifth Avenue and the American Girl Place. There’s something magical about a shopping trip to New York, but it’s even more spectacular for a little girl who’s in love with the American Girl brand.
On a recent trip to NYC, a friend told me about this package that she bought for her daughter to celebrate her birthday. Turns out it was a big hit and the little girl can’t stop talking about it, so I thought it was too good not to share with you.
There are so many fab hotels in New York, but I found out that the Grand Hyatt New York has an American Girl Package, which is perfect! I stayed at this hotel on a recent trip to the city and enjoyed the location — it’s in the heart of everything and walking distance to Fifth Avenue and Times Square.
The Grand Hyatt’s American Girl Package package includes:
- Overnight accommodations
- American Girl Doll Bed
- $25 American Girl Place gift card
- Milk and cookies amenity and welcome letter
- Free breakfast for kids under 5 in New York Central
- 50% off breakfast price for kids ages 5-12
For pricing and to book the package, check out the Grand Hyatt’s website.
Oh, and here’s a tip, pick your little girl up from summer camp, school, grandma’s house or wherever she is this summer and tell her you’re going on a surprise vacation, just the two of you. Try to keep it a surprise until the very end. It makes it just that much more special.
If you really want to pull out all the stops, the American Girl Place offers a VIP experience. For $260 you get a full day package that includes:
- A meal for two in the American Girl Cafe
- A sitting at the Photo Studio and a souvenir issue of American Girl magazine with your girl’s picture on the cover
- A session at the Doll Hair Salon
- $130 spending money
- Girl- and doll-sized souvenir T-shirts
