PUBLIC Chicago is a hotel designed by Ian Schrager, the co-owner and co-founder of Studio 54, the New York’s most popular nightclub in the 1970s. PUBLIC Chicago is actually the completely renovated famous Ambassador East Hotel together with historic Pump Room restaurant within it, and now it is a luxury and beautiful resort, but with surprisingly bearable prices.
The hotel consists of 285 exclusive rooms, all with the recognizable simple, yet elegant, design and interiors that are designed in “no color” color palette. The accommodation at PUBLIC Chicago is classified in the following categories: Guestroom, Guestroom Double, Superior King Room, Deluxe King Room, Loft Room, One Bedroom Suite, Deluxe One Bedroom Suite and Celebrity Suite.
Like the rest of the hotel, the rooms are also non-smoking, and provide stunning views of the city of Chicago from their windows or vast terraces. All accommodations are equipped with king, queen or double beds, high quality sheets and pillows, custom designed pieces of furniture, lighting, fabrics and drapery, desks with large work areas, Corian bathtubs and sinks, flat screen LCD TVs, high-speed internet, safes, minibars etc.
Even though it sounds like by just being in the room you will have a great time in PUBLIC Chicago, it just might get better, since the hotel offers many interesting amenities outside of the accommodation options. For example, on the 11th floor there is a 24-hour fitness center with a skilled personal trainer at your service.
The Library, designed in style of Italian cafes, French patisseries and European coffee houses of the 50s, along with the Coffee Bar is a place where you can truly enjoy yourself, sipping coffees and drinks from all over the world in a very pleasant and warm environment.
As already mentioned at the beginning, within the hotel there is the Pump Room Restaurant, which offers excellent specialties made by renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. During the night, the restaurant converts into a night club in the style of the 30’s and 40’s.
At PUBLIC Chicago there is one more thing, pretty unusual, but still useful and attractive – the Screening Room or the Back Room. This gives you the opportunity to spend your time at the hotel watching famous movies, news, sport events, music performances, enjoying poetry readings or simply relaxing. [via]
