    POSTED December 20, 2017

In addition to the exclusive Nordstrom Shopping Package announced this fall, the JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America now also offers tiny travelers and their dolls the VIP treatment during their stay with the new American Girl Package.

Like the hotel’s Nordstrom Exclusive Shopping Package (which provides guests with $100 Nordstrom gift cards for each night of their stay, $50 in dining at JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America’s Cedar + Stone, Urban Table restaurant each night, and a personal stylist/shopper at Nordstrom upon request), the American Girl Doll Package includes an exclusive American Girl brand doll-sized travel bed for guests to keep, turn down service for small guests and their doll beds, milk and cookies, and a personal welcome letter from the general manager. The Deluxe American Girl Package also includes breakfast for two adults and two children, and an exclusive American Girl Doll Robe and Slippers.

“With the numerous opportunities available to guests at the Mall of America, we wanted to offer visitors a truly refined experience to personalize their trip,” said General Manager Lars Danneberg. “We are excited to offer these two special packages for the holiday season to enhance each guests’ stay with us.”

The American Girl Doll Package starts at $201 per night, plus taxes and gratuity. Click here for more information about the Nordstrom Exclusive Shopping Package or the American Girl Doll Package.

On Saturday, June 16, thousands ignored the rain and scorching heat to check out the Walker Art Center’s 20th annual Rock the Garden music festival. As the local beer flowed, fans swarmed the museum’s hillside and iconic sculpture garden to soak in a diverse lineup of local and international acts including headliner Father John Misty, Feist, Chastity Brown, Kamasi Washington and P.O.S. (and a surprise guest appearance from Current DJ Mark Wheat). But what exactly goes into planning the Walker’s biggest event of the year?
