Glamping, that blend of luxury and camping, has caught on strong with travelers who want to have their cake and eat it, too, in such rustic locales as a safari lodge. But some upscale U.S. hotels are incorporating glamping into their services as well, offering the equivalent of having your cake, eating it, too — and then having another cake.

So if your idea of an outdoor getaway is sipping on a fresh cocktail by the beach while watching TV and lying on a fancy couch with your phone by your side and your concierge at arm’s length, you’re in luck! These hotels are going to great lengths to give you a memorable glamping experience.

There would be no way to top camping in Central Park — if only it were legal. But you can camp above the park in serious luxury, for the cost of a small car. Simply book AKA’s 17th-floor penthouse suite that comes with an outdoor bedroom on the 1,000-square-foot wraparound terrace. With such a killer view of Manhattan, you may have a tough time closing your eyes to sleep on your queen-size bed with wood-burning fireplace.

Cost: The catch is that you’ll have to book the suite for an entire week, and that comes out to $11,595 (not including taxes). But hey, did you look at that view?
