If you were dismayed to find out you weren't selected for Airbnb's "Night at the Louvre" contest, unfurrow your brow: you can sleep beneath a transparent geometric shape much closer to home.
The Watergate Hotel has erected a "Glamping Globe" atop their new rooftop restaurant, enabling guests to book a "one-night stay under the stars". Described as "DC's only private rooftop Glamping Globe", the experience costs $3,000 for two guests.
The package also includes access to a hotel room on the top floor and a VIP table at the Top of the Gate. Other enticing features include a telescope for stargazing, a dedicated butler, roofside breakfast service, and "turndown service with eucalyptus essential oils".
The unique set-up is not without its rules, however. For example, quiet hours are from midnight to 7am; only two people are allowed in the tent (no visitors allowed); music is forbidden; recreational drugs, smoking and drunkenness are prohibited; and there are no guarantees of good weather. Guests would also be sharing the area of the roof near the tent until the restaurant closes for the night.
Brooklyn-based Terra Glamping provided the rooftop tent and also runs a glamping site in the Hamptons starting at $300 per night. The Top of the Gate restaurant opened last month.
