I have seen Gilmore Girls in its entirety more times than I can count.

The seven season aughts drama is the go-to comfort show for more than one generation, a series that has buoyed many through life's unpredictability with its nostalgic warmth. Fans repeatedly return to the show for emotional safe-keeping, as you can always depend on the tender spirit of Stars Hollow. But… what if you could immerse yourself in the town's essence, in the real-life locale of the where the show is based?

The Delamar West Hartford, a luxury hotel in Connecticut that opened in 2017, is now inviting guests to experience the world of Gilmore Girls through a new getaway package inspired by the series. The package references key moments from the show, directly paralleling some of the most iconic episodes and scenes and paying homage to the colorful main characters.

I experienced the Delamar's package firsthand with a special guest by my side: my grandmother, the Emily to my Rory. The experience was not only the perfect early Mother's Day gift, but a weekend adventure that we will cherish forever.

The bar for the package's meticulous detail orientation was set high early in our stay, as two coffee mugs from Luke's Diner awaited as as we entered our accommodations. We quickly dived deeper into the Gilmore universe, as we essentially re-enacted one of the funniest episodes of the show: the spa episode. In season 2, episode 16, titled “There's the Rub,” Lorelai attends a spa weekend against her will alongside her mother Emily. When Emily unwittingly signs them up for a couples massage, for time “efficiency,” Lorelai hilariously retorts: “A couple's massage is for a couple, not a couple of people.”

Going on a couples massage with my grandmother to keep in the theme of the weekend was priceless; while Emily might have talked Lorelai's ear off, my grandmother and I shared sidesplitting laughter after our massages, almost deliriously relaxed.
