ENGLEWOOD, CO Apr. 28, 2010 Friendship between two people is life defining, but friendship between a girl and her doll is priceless. At the forefront of connecting girls with their best doll friend is American Girl, a division of Mattel, Inc. (NASDQ: MAT). In March, American Girl opened its first Colorado store in Park Meadows Colorado's Only Retail Resort, giving little ladies, ages 3-12, a new place to celebrate their interests with engaging products and experiences designed just for them. Honoring the virtues of friendship, The Inverness Hotel, a preferred American Girl hotel in Denver, Colorado, designed three signature American Girl hotel packages that enhance a day at the American Girl store with a girlfriends' sleepover. The American Girl Backyard Getaway, American Girl Passport and American Girl Royal Experience packages treat little ladies and their doll friends to an unforgettable escape complete with accommodations at this Denver, Colorado hotel, special perks and an American Girl-inspired turndown for both the girl and her doll. American Girl packages start at $149-$499 per night and are available now through Dec. 31, 2010.

"What we especially like about the partnership with American Girl is that the dolls and books encourage young girls to be kids, while developing social skills, a love of reading and appreciation of history," said Katie Johnson, Regional Marketing Manager at The Inverness Hotel. "The Inverness Hotel offers a variety of activities for kids and grown-ups, and similar to our American Girl and Park Meadows partners, we want entire families to feel welcome and enjoy their special time together."
