HELP! travel cot with zip-down side for semi-cosleeping 14mo?

I need to get a travel cot to stay in hotel with my co-sleeping 14mo very soon - we've been putting off a trip that can't be put off any longer. She bf to sleep,wakes easily if transferred so won't generally sleep in a cot (trying to change, but that's a whole other story). I'm thinking if I can get one with a zip down side, I can lie on cushions of the floor next to her, feed to sleep, then zip her up! I want something that I can also use as a playpen on the trip whilst I'm in the shower etc.
Does anyone have experience of travel cots for a similar baby? I've seen the phil and teds one - very expensive, but might do the trick. Is is silly to be getting a travel cot for a baby of this age?

I had this one that zips down but if you get it read the instructions for putting it down properly ... we got the hang of it after the 4th time !!!!

You could get a samsonite pop up cot. Can't do a link as I'm on the app just now. They do two sizes, a tiny one for little babies and a bigger one.

Thank you both! The chicco might work - how high is it off the floor,and is the mattress ok? The samsonite probably wouldn't do it, as I don't think it would 'contain' her once asleep or work as a playpen.

The chicco is about a hand sideways off the floor. The mattress was a thin one ok for the odd night but we used it a fair bit so had another mattress a cotton one that we bought apart and rolled into another bag.
