Camp out under stars and skyscrapers.
When one thinks of camping, it’s of pitching a tent in a field or forest and getting away from the hassle of urban life. Those days spent finding the appropriate floor space, fitting the tent frame, knocking in the ground stakes, and laying out sleeping bags come flooding back.
Let’s face it, you’re somebody who gets a buzz from that kind of experience or somebody who hates it all together and craves their bed every minute they’re inside a tent. For some, snuggling up under the sound of pitter-patter or huddling around a campfire is a night well-spent, for others, it’s a hardship and they’re eagerly awaiting the return to the city.
Well, now there is a solution to that age-old problem. Chicago’s award-winning Gwen Hotel has once again begun offering the city’s first urban glamping experience on the private terrace of the Gwen Lux Suite.
Perched up on the 16th floor of the landmark McGraw-Hill building, guests can enjoy over 1,000 square feet of private terrace and sensational sweeping views over Michigan Avenue all to themselves. In the middle of the Gwen Lux Suite Terrace Gwen Hotel has erected an expansive Lotus Belle tent measuring 16-feet in diameter and decked out with an eclectic bohemian aesthetic. Inside guests will find lavish furnishings such as; drum side tables, hand-knotted macramé seat cushions, a braided Indian jute rug, and a centerpiece queen-sized Black Pearl bed, designed exclusively for the Luxury Collection hotels’ brand.
The exclusive Glamping Experience hotel package includes access to the two-bedroom suite, accommodating up to six guests, as well as a dining room, living room with a wet bar, and two-and-a-half baths.
The Gwen Glamping experience will run from May through December 31, 2022, and can accommodate up to six guests. Rates start at $5,500 and more information can be found at thegwenchicago.com/glamping or by calling 312-645-1500.
