If Chicago’s on your travel route this summer, here’s a bucket list experience curated for you by The Gwen, a Luxury Collection Hotel. The hotel’s experience is particularly for those seeking an urban camping adventure amongst the city’s hustle and bustle. Adorably titled the Glamping Experience, here’s what the $5,500 per night experience entails.
Walk inside the Lux Suite on the 16th floor of the beautiful McGraw-Hill building, and you will find a boho-chic tent dressing one of the most spacious private outdoor terraces with a space spanning an impressive 1,000 sq ft.
Of course given Gwen’s lavish and grandiose style, the 16-feet tent is dotted with drum-side tables, hand-knotted macramé seat cushions and a handcrafted Indian rug. The queen-sized Black Pearl bed, a signature element of Luxury Collection hotels occupies a prominent position in the tent. Dressed with Frette linens and earthenware lamps, the entire atmosphere is inspired by the aesthetic of camping.
In addition to the tent, guests have access to the two-bedroom suite which can accommodate up to six guests. Visualise a dining room, a living room with wet bar and two and half baths.
If that’s not enough for you, the hotel has thrown in an awe-inspiring meal cooked by The Gwen’s Executive Chef Matt Jergens, round-trip airport transportation and very appropriately, in blend with the theme – s’mores turndown amenity.
Cherish being part of the hotel’s Elite Ambassador Service where the Elite Ambassadors will be accessible round-the-clock to cater to every need, including a Spa at Nordstrom ($120 per person) or a glamping tasting menu from Chef Jergens (priced from $125 per person).
From May 28 to September 28, 2018, The Gwen is offering this experience to adventurous guests.
