When it comes to camping, there are those who like to rough it...

And those who like to do it with 24k gold s’mores on top of a legendary Beverly Hills hotel.

Let's assume you can figure the first one out.

As for the second, you'll want the Veranda Suite Terrace, essentially an extremely luxurious tent on top of the Beverly Wilshire with a private entrance and dinner you'll not soon forget, now open and accepting reservations. Check it out.

They call it an "urban glamping" experience. We prefer to just say there's a 16-foot-wide, 10 foot-tall tent with a queen-size bed, fur rugs and a crystal chandelier inside on the hotel's 10th floor rooftop that you should stay in with a date before it all comes down when December ends. It's easier.

Once you're up there, you'll take in sweeping views of the Hollywood Hills and Rodeo and do whatever consenting adults choose to do inside really nice tents.

Somewhere in between those things, you may opt to have Blvd's executive chef and pastry ace prepare a tasting menu out there for you two. It will involve Ossetra caviar, Japanese Mishima Wagyu and those 24k gold leaf s'mores with plenty of Champagne.

And the whole experience also comes with an indoor suite mere steps away, should anyone need it.

Just like real camping.
