A Night At This Rooftop Glampground Will Leave You In Awe
Glamping is the new and trendy alternative to old-fashioned camping. Think silk sheets and gourmet meals rather than lumpy bunk beds and trail mix. Thanks to the popularity of this fresh take on roughing it, you can now “glamp” in some truly unique places. This rooftop urban glamping experience is one of the best.
Spend the night in a rooftop tent at The Gwen in Chicago.
The Gwen is a chic Chicago hotel that's now offering one seriously cool glamping experience. The hotel is allowing guests to book an unforgettable night under the stars in their very own luxury tent.
The tent is called the Lotus Belle and it's truly spectacular.
Perched on the 16th floor of the McGraw-Hill building, the Lotus Belle tent is part of the Gwen Lux Suite. You'll have over 1,000 square feet of the open-air terrace to yourself, along with this fabulous tent. The views alone are worth it.
Inside the tent, you'll find handcrafted furnishings and comfy bedding.
The tent looks cool from the outside, but wait until you see the inside. Furnishings include drum side tables made out of mango wood and copper, hand-knotted seat cushions, a braided Indian jute rug, and a luxurious queen-sized bed.
The tent experience also includes access to a two-bedroom indoor suite that can accommodate up to six guests. The suite has a dining room, a living room with a wet bar, and 2.5 baths.
Glampers also receive special perks throughout their stay.
Upon check-in, guests will be treated to a welcome bite from The Gwen's very own chef Matt Jergens. You’ll also enjoy round-trip transportation from the airport and s'mores on each evening of your stay. Glampers will also have access to the hotel's Elite Ambassador Service, which will help manage every aspect of your stay.
Don't forget to try out the hotel's other awesome amenities.
The fun doesn't stop at the tent door. This hotel is packed with opportunities to pamper yourself. Indulge in a day at the spa ($120 per person) or enlist Chef Jergens to provide a glamping tasting menu ($125 per person). And of course, you should definitely head out into the city to explore.
Urban glamping at The Gwen is available from May 28 to September 30, 2018.
