As the weather heats up here in New York, we’re all eager to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. Since camping isn’t exactly a safe idea in Manhattan (and now that Zuccotti Park is no longer an option), glamping – or glamorous camping – might be your best bet for sleeping under the stars. And now the Hyatt 48 Lex is the most recent hotel to latch onto the glamping trend.

Starting Memorial Day Weekend, when most people will flee the city in favor of Long Island beaches or the Catskills, the boutique hotel is offering intrepid urban campers one of eight terrace accommodations, complete with bedding, pillows, and blankets.

The Suite Glamping Package also comes with books, lanterns, a bottle of wine, a picnic backpack from Dean & Deluca, and a skyline view. And if you get too cold (or the car horns and sirens prohibit you from catching some shut-eye, it rains, or you realize you can’t see the stars because of the bright city lights), your empty suite or penthouse room awaits your return.

The package starts at $509 per night in a Terrace Studio, or $2,500 per night for the penthouse suite.
