The idea of glamping always seemed kind of silly to us - why go through the charade of staying in a tent when it’s just as luxurious as a hotel? We’re still not totally sure of the answer, but after spending time in the Winter Garden at The Standard, we think it has to do with having your own private space that kind of feels like nature. During the winter, the outdoor garden at this East Village hotel fills up with heated yurts that have faux fur chairs and blankets in each one. Some of them are big enough for groups, but they’re best for drinks and snacks, like spiked hot chocolate and fondue, with a date.
