Sleep in a rooftop igloo this winter in New York

Sleeping under the stars is a foreign concept in New York. Of course, the Big Apple is home to a variety of unique accommodations. But, lying in bed staring up at the sky as the snow falls is definitely not one of them. This is until now. Conrad New York Midtown has launched a limited-time winter experience featuring Veuve Clicquot, in its one-of-a-kind ATRIUM suite that acts like a modern igloo.

The 1,200 square foot suite with a chalet-style glass dome, titled Winter Suite, has been transformed into a luxurious winter-themed cabin with faux sheepskin and cowhide rugs, a fireplace decor with firewood and Adirondack chairs. Guests who book the chalet-style suite will be greeted with a Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label bottle and can relax in fluffy bathrobes and slippers.

For those wishing to enhance their experience, a special Winter Suite in-room menu will be available featuring the famous Champagne Mimosas and a French-inspired accompanying Champagne dinner. Of course, nothing beats the experience of lying in bed watching snowfall and lights twinkle from above.

“It really is a one-of-a-kind experience that transports guests,” Boris Guerov, general manager of Conrad New York Midtown, told me. There’s nothing quite like it with a 180 degree panoramic view of Central Park and the New York skyline! We are excited to bring this immersive experience to customers.”

Incredibly, this isn’t the only igloo-like experience happening in New York this winter. The Renaissance New York Chelsea Hotel debuts Somewhere Nowhere’s new rooftop teardrop igloos that overlook the New York City skyline and Empire State Building from the 38th and 39th floors. There are 10 igloos available that can each accommodate 4-5 people with Aspen-inspired winter decor, a built-in fireplace, and blankets for warmth.

Inside, you can order craft cocktails and globally inspired dishes from Noodlelove. Drink offerings were inspired by fantasy films such as ‘Alice and Wonderland’ and ‘Harry Potter’. Think cocktails like the Reine de Cœur served in a cage with Patron, blackberry, raspberries, Cointreau, Chambord, hibiscus syrup and lemon juice. Meanwhile, the menu will feature items such as Wagyu beef sliders, spicy tuna tartare and hot lobster rolls.

“Somewhere Nowhere is designed to be an immersive and fantastical escape. We want to transport our guests to a winter wonderland like they’ve never experienced,” said Iris Tang, co-founder of El Grupo SN, in a communicated. “Through our Teardrop Igloos, we’ve created a luxurious feel as if you’re dining in a snow globe with the most scenic views – dine among the stars and gaze at the city lights and skyline. The ultimate experience most unique you can find.”

The Winter Suite is available for guests to book now through February 28, with rates starting at $3,300 per night (excluding food and beverage options). Each igloo is available by reservation only directly on the Somewhere Nowhere site (and Resy coming soon), with seating available for 2.5 hours with a minimum $800 food and drink spend.
