Following a successful inaugural year in 2011, the experience is once again open to the public this summer. Available for booking from May through Labor Day, the terrace bedroom runs you $1,999 per night but comes with some ultra luxurious perks to make your stay unique and unforgettable. Imagine the New York of the movies, where the hero and heroine always runs onto a private rooftop and then the camera pans to show the city lights glittering beneath the expansive sky. This is the magical experience the AKA outdoor terrace promises to deliver, along with some good old fashioned camping goodness.
Set on the 17th floor just steps from Central Park, the wraparound terrace bedroom is part of the AKA’s penthouse suite. The plush queen size bed is set in front of a wood-burning fireplace and amenities include a 42-inch plasma screen TV and DVD player with a selection of classic movies, a state-of-the-art telescope for stargazing, outdoor mood music, scented candles for ambiance and a high tech flashlight and camping lantern for a truly authentic camping experience.
There’s also no need to roast your own food here: part of the package includes midnight snacks of gourmet Jacque Torres s’mores, cheese and crackers, strawberries and champagne. Hungry for something else? Well, the rest of Manhattan is your oyster. AKA Central Park is located at 42 West 58th St. To book this experience, visit StayAKA.com or call 888-381-4488.
