American Girl Place Chicago

Planning a pre-holiday visit to American Girl Chicago? Consider spending your night at a Magnificent Mile area hotel that offers special, sweet amenities for girls and dolls. Yes, dolls. Several Chicago hotels are offering special rates and creative promotions to make the perfect girls weekend, life-like toys included.

The Omni Hotel

With the American Girl Package at the Omni Hotel, dolls are welcomed with a new pajama set and slippers and will be able to snuggle into their very own doll-sized bed at night (and can bring it home, too!). At check in, each girl will receive a welcome card and an American Girl book to read at bedtime. On the evening of arrival, girls and dolls are treated to the Sugar and Sweet All-American Candy Display as well as cookies and milk with turn down service before bedtime. Parents will appreciate the $50 food and beverage voucher for dining at the Omni Chicago and free valet parking. Package pricing starts at $293 per night.

Embassy Suites Chicago

Enjoy a slumber party American Girl style with the American Girl Place package at the Embassy Suites Chicago. At night, girls and their dolls are invited to snuggle in with a special turndown service and a special take-home bed for dolly. You'll be all set for an in-suite movie night when room service brings you complimentary popcorn, sweet and salty snacks and juice. Wake up to a complimentary full, cooked to order breakfast each day of your stay, too. Package pricing starts at $260 per night. For more information or to reserve, click here.

Ritz Carlton Chicago

Located just an elevator ride away from American Girl Place Chicago in Water Tower Place, the Ritz Carlton offers perhaps the most luxe American Girl Place Package of all. At check-in, each girl receives a personalized welcome note as well as a photo with her favorite doll. Shop at American Girl Place during the day and you can count on complimentary delivery to the hotel of American Girl items purchased at American Girl Place, so you can all do some more shopping at Water Tower Place without too many bags in tow. Children will also have the opportunity to bake cookies with the hotel chef.

All kids under age five dine free at both the hotel's restaurants and in-room. Guests can also opt to add on special spa services for an additional fee: a mother-and-daughter-and doll manicure, which includes a special American Girl gift and even a spa chair for the doll, or a special in-room spa bubble bath with a gift for the pampered doll. Before bed, enjoy the matching girl and doll turndown service (each doll receives a take home bed, too) and borrow a book or two from the in-hotel American Girl lending library. Pricing starts at $450 per night. For more information or to reserve, click here.
