POLL: Would You Drop $2,000 to ‘Glamp’ in a Yurt on a NYC Terrace?
We’re all for glamping here at 6sqft, though we typically reserve these outdoor adventures for places like the Catskills. But the W Hotel chain is hoping to capitalize on the trend and bring it to their Lexington Avenue location. A press release from the company announces their Outdoor Glamping Suite, part of the 17th floor Extreme Wow Suite, which makes nods to camping with “a 12-foot yurt bedecked in a kaleidoscope of fabrics and textures, glowing lanterns, rattan hanging chairs and a fire pit that lights up with a flip of a switch.” The W teamed up with interior design company Laurel & Wolf to create the experience, which is going for a whopping $2,000 a night.
Designer Kimberly Winthrop said of the project, “In New York, the ultimate luxury is having your own outdoor space. We wanted this to feel really lush, like a green outdoor oasis. Instead of your typical tent or teepee, we decided to install a yurt on the balcony. Because they’re round, they feel more inclusive and are better for socializing.”
The suite is available starting today through November. If you’re interested, you can make a reservation here.
