Not-so-roughing-it: Glamorous 'camping' in NYC

Last Updated: Wed, Aug 21, 2013 06:45 hrs

Ahh, the joys of roughing it in the great outdoors — champagne, high-thread-count sheets, flat-screen television. Glamorous camping, New York City-style.

At least a couple of city locales are offering this unusual option — the chance to sleep outdoors, incredibly comfortably.

For just about $2,000 per night at the AKA Central Park, there's a bedroom setup — queen bed, fireplace, television — but also a telescope to look at the stars and the ingredients for that campfire favorite, s'mores.

At the Affinia Gardens hotel on the Upper East Side, guests who book the patio suite (starting at around $300 per night, depending on the time of year) can pick from a range of options from dinner outside to a bed made up on the patio floor in an actual tent.
