“Roughing it” isn’t typically the way one would describe spending a night in New York City at one of the world’s most popular boutique hotel chains, but the W New York in Midtown Manhattan is doing its best to redefine the phrase in appropriately luxurious fashion — the property recently transformed the terrace of its spacious Extreme Wow Suite into a glamping oasis befitting of any luxe-loving urban adventurer.

The colorful al fresco escape was designed by Laurel & Wolf, an interior design firm that’s outfitted the terrace with every imaginable camping essential, including a full-sized yurt and fire pit, plus plenty of space for lounging and taking in one of the city’s rarest commodities: outdoor space. The terrace has even been covered in a lovely artificial grass, to give it that extra bit of believability.

If weather or a lack of desire to sleep under the stars has you craving an honest-to-goodness roof over your head, you simply need to head inside to the full suite. Of course, all this communing with nature (and probably some pigeons) comes at a price: $2,000 per night to be exact (and no, unfortunately you can’t redeem Starpoints to help defray the cost). But just imagine how jealous you’ll make all your Instagram followers.

Would you pay $2,000 a night to go glamping on an NYC rooftop? Sound off below.
