When we were younger, we considered ourselves the outdoorsy type. Then again as children, we wanted nothing more than the freedom to run. Today, we’re happy with a view of the city and a glass of something tasty. However, we sometimes get brief pangs of exploring and discovering the outdoors, but then we remember the lack of comforts. This had us thinking, how can we relive the wonder of the outdoors with our love of comfortable surroundings…….in the city? The W New York Hotel, located at 541 Lexington Avenue, actually gave us the answer with their new Extreme Wow Outdoor Glamping Suite. It’s the perfect solution for those who want to enjoy a bit of the outdoors, without losing the comfort.
The W New York has partnered with Online Interior Design firm, Laurel & Wolf to transform the terrace of the Extreme Wow Suite into an urban glamping escape. With the brilliant lights of Times Square in the distance and a panoramic view of the city as your backdrop, you’ll feel right at home relishing in these outdoor views. The Extreme Wow Outdoor Glamping Suite celebrates everything about camping: a 12-foot yurt furnished 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. A canopy of twinkling café lights surrounds the yurt, which stands as the central element of the rustic-luxe oasis.
W New York is offering guests the opportunity to book special packages centered around the Extreme Wow Outdoor Glamping Suite. Special deals will include packages for families, honeymooners, girls’ getaways, and more, with rates starting at $2,000 per night. Don’t think just because the summer’s almost over, you won’t have time to partake in this glamping adventure. The Outdoor Glamping Suite will remain open until November, weather permitting of course.
Julie Geer, Director of Partnerships at Laurel & Wolf states: “We are thrilled to partner with W New York, an iconic destination that perfectly complements the vibrancy of this amazing city. Marking the launch of our first hotel partnership, we are honored to work with the flagship property for W Hotels Worldwide, rooted in a city of limitless design inspiration.”
Pablo-Andres Lopez, Marketing Manager at W New York says, “W New York’s partnership with Laurel & Wolf on the design of the terrace is an exciting initiative, the first glamping experience to take place at a hotel in New York City. We’re inspired by Laurel & Wolf’s design work and look forward to working with their talented team to launch more unique guest experiences.”
We had a wonderful time taking in the scenic views, enjoying the cooler air, and trying not to fall asleep in the super comfy Yurt. Thanks to the music from DJ Rose, and the champagne bar, we had a blast reliving our outdoor adventures. Are you a fan of glamping?
