For those who love spending time in the outdoors but don’t truly enjoy “roughing it”, glamping is another option. The term combines “glamorous” and “camping” to provide a truly luxurious and unique way to spend the night outside under the stars. At one New York City hotel, guests can enjoy soft sheets, television, and gourmet treats while spending the night inside a tent on the hotel’s rooftop patio. Of course there’s also the traditional camping staples, like fires and s’mores available to give the impression of a night spent away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Guest say they love the camp atmosphere and privacy without having to sacrifice hotel conveniences and access to what the city has to offer. They say glamping in the city still feels like a true getaway, despite not having to travel very far from their homes or jobs. Hotel guests these days are always looking for something fun and different, so it makes sense that glamping has begun to catch on, despite seeming a bit silly to those of us who truly love to camp.
