    Kids Can Live the American Girl Dream in Northern Virginia

    Kids Can Live the American Girl Dream in Northern Virginia

    The Hyatt Regency Tysons Corner in Tysons Corner, Va., is the first new-build, full-service property to enter the market in the area in 20 years, and the hotel is upping the ante for families with its new American Girl Experience package.

    “Hyatt Regency Tysons Corner Center is thrilled to partner with American Girl to provide families staying at the hotel with the American Girl Experience package,” said Daniel Amato, general manager with Hyatt Regency Tysons Corner Center.  “As the hotel is directly connected to the Tysons Corner Center, which is home to the area’s only American Girl store, this package provides fun, one of a kind activities for families to share with their children.”

    For fans of the American Girl doll, this is the ideal getaway. With its close proximity to the American Girl store, located just steps away from the hotel, children and their parents can explore the latest dolls and accessories while having a memorable vacation experience. Kids can plan a day of beauty with their dolls at the doll hair salon, go on a shopping spree or have a high-end dining experience at the American Girl Bistro, where guests can enjoy appetizers, two-course dinners, desserts, or an afternoon tea. 

    The Hyatt Regency provides its own unique experience for its young guests. Upon arrival and check-in at the hotel, children will receive a special welcome amenity created by the hotel’s culinary team. They are also presented with an exclusive doll bed for the child’s American Girl doll to sleep on while staying at the hotel and to take home as a special souvenir of their stay.

    The package includes deluxe accommodations, breakfast for up to two children under age 10, complimentary self-parking, complimentary basic Internet access and more.  The American Girl Experience includes the amenities for one child, and additional children can be added to the package at an additional cost. All guests who enjoy the package are also eligible for entry into the American Girl quarterly doll raffle.

    The American Girl Experience begins at $176 per night based on availability and can be booked by visiting and clicking the “Offers” page, or by calling (703) 893-1234.
