If you’re looking for a camping experience without the uncomfortable sleeping situation and lack of indoor plumbing, “glamping” may be the answer.

For $2,000 a night, you and your “glamour camping” squad can spend the night at the Extreme Wow Outdoor Glamping Suite at the W Hotel in midtown Manhattan. The suite was fully designed and furnished by the interior-design startup Laurel & Wolf and aims to reflect a modern and glamorous style of camping.

The stunning outdoor space debuted July 12 and will continue hosting guests until November, weather permitting.

Kimberly Winthrop, the Laurel & Wolf designer behind the project, said that she admires W Hotel’s design as one that “pushes the envelope” and is fun. “We wanted to do something really wild with this design partnership,” Winthrop said in a press release on the partnership. “What’s crazier than the idea of camping in the middle of New York City?”

Winthrop said the decision to bypass a traditional tent or teepee was strategic. “Because it’s round, [the yurt] feels more inclusive and is better for socializing,” Winthrop said.

Winthrop said the fire pit is one of her favorite parts of the suite’s design. “We up-lit birch logs in a chic modern fire pit, which creates all of the glow of a campfire with none of the heat,” she said. “It’s perfect for NYC summer nights.”

“In New York, the ultimate luxury is having your own outdoor space,” Winthrop said. “We wanted this to feel really lush, a green outdoor oasis.”

The design inspiration came from the colorful string art of Oregon-based artist Renee Laurain.
