If you're looking to rough it this summer, skip camping and go glamping in River North at The Gwen. The luxury hotel is offering guests the opportunity to sleep inside a posh tent on the building's private 1,000-square-foot terrace. The only catch? You'll have to book the Gwen Lux Suite, a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath room that starts at $5,500 per night.

Though the pricey digs include a stunning dining room, living room and wet bar, you'll have the option to sleep in a sizable 16-foot tent that's decked out in bohemian touches like woven pillows, shabby-chic lanterns and a potted fiddle-leaf fig. That's right: Why sleep inside the $5,500-per-night suite when you can get in touch with nature out on the terrace? Plus, you'll wake up to sweeping views of the Tribune Tower, 875 North Michigan Avenue (formerly known as the John Hancock Center) and Lake Michigan.

That price tag also spares you the chore of finding a bathroom au naturel in the wilderness; just choose from one of three toilets inside your massive suite when nature calls.
