If you’ve ever dreamed of glamping on top of a super controversial building complex, now’s your chance.

This summer, the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C., is inviting guests to stay on the very top floor of the hotel in their own geo-dome tent. (Yes, it’s part of the Watergate complex you’re thinking of.) All it takes is plunking down $3,000 for the night.

"It’s a fun celebratory evening under the stars, perfect for special occasions and milestone moments. We’ve received a number of calls from guests who are intrigued by the opportunity for this unique glamping experience,” Watergate managing director Pascal Forotti said in a statement. “We wanted to extend an over-the-top luxury experience to our guests during the spring and summer months.”

The package, dubbed “glamping with the stars,” includes a one-night stay at the Top of the Gate inside a luxury glamping dome outfitted by Terra Glamping. It also comes with exclusive access to a VIP table at Top of the Gate with a moonlight round of cocktails. Two drinks are also included.

And, during the stay, guests are invited to roast marshmallows on the roof as a team prepares the tent for the evening with special turndown service. When booking the room, guests will also have a star named after them and will be sent home with a star naming certificate so you can remember where your new celestial body is at all times. There will even be a telescope ready for all guests on the rooftop so they can stare into the heavens all night long.

But wait, there’s more. Guests will also wake up to sunrise breakfast on the rooftop as well as have their own “secret service” butler for any and all needs.

Of course, this isn’t any regular tent. Inside, guests can lounge in luxury with mid-century modern decor, lay in a plush pink queen-sized bed under the tent’s crystal sputnik chandelier. So maybe it really is worth the hefty price tag after all.
