2019 marks Barbie’s 60th anniversary, and the famous doll is being celebrated in many ways, with the release of a new range of Barbie toys and the brand’s recent collaboration on a retro sneaker with Puma.

You can also celebrate the occasion by staying in a Barbie-themed room at the Hilton Mexico City Santa Fe. The hotel has joined forces with Mattel to transform one of its rooms into a “glamping”-style suite that’s fit for the famous doll. The hotel has also created a Barbie-themed dining menu, and included plenty of photo ops.

Depending on when you stay at the Barbie Suite, which is offered until December 2019, the room costs between $US189 and $US229 per night. From pink food to doll-themed bedrooms, here’s a look inside the suite.

“Glamping,” or glamorous camping, is the theme of this Barbie-inspired room.

The room is home to “a life-sized DreamCamper,” which doubles as a place for kids to play in and sleep, according to the press release.

The idea was to create a space where guests could go “glamping,” which combines glamour and camping.

“Barbie loves to travel, enjoys nature, and cares about the environment, without forgoing the comfort of the most sophisticated accommodations,” Andres Korngold, the General Manager of Hilton Mexico City Santa Fe, said in the press release.


Next to the camper is a play area for children who stay in the suite.

The area has an outdoor aesthetic, and includes a grass-like floor and curtains that are printed with a night-sky pattern. There are also plenty of Barbie dolls and accessories to play with.


In the bathroom, children can use Barbie-themed products from Colgate and Avon.

Breakfast includes an array of fruit dishes.
