Upscale Hotels Feature Faux Camping

Some love the idea of camping but are less than enthusiastic about the prospect of roughing it. The Huffington Post reports several upscale hotels are offering rooms that provide a simulation of the camping experience that caters to this segment of the populace. If you prefer glamping over camping, a hotel can set you up with a small tent, lantern and s’mores; but the deal also includes sumptuous bedding and French pastries. It’s an ultra-luxurious version of camping that has been dubbed “faux camping.” Next time the glamping bug bites, you may want to book a room in one of these hotels.
