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.
