Like the idea of camping except for all the getting back to nature stuff? Chicago’s luxe landmark The Gwen offers the city’s first urban glamping experience. With bird’s-eye views of Michigan Avenue, the 16th-floor private terrace of the Gwen Lux Suite has a boho Lotus Belle tent with a comfy queen-sized bed.
A thousand square feet of open-air real estate is awesome, but glamping just wouldn’t be glam without lavish indoor plumbing. So the glamping experience also includes an indoor two-bedroom suite for six guests, with 2 ½ baths, wet bar, living room, dining room, and plush robes instead of mosquito nets and bear warnings.
