Style is paramount at the Public Chicago, where guest rooms have been decorated in soothing “no-color” palettes, accented with an eclectic mix of custom-made modern furniture, a curated collection of Mondino photographs, Thassos mosaic tile floors and Corian sinks and bathtubs.

More than a pretty face, however, guest rooms at this hotel are also equipped with thick down comforters and pillows, and complimentary Wi-Fi, which will come in handy for planning day trips or scoping out the shopping and dining options on famous Michigan Avenue, just a short stroll away.

The on-site restaurant boasts farm-to-table locally sourced, sustainable menu items created by James Beard award-winning chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and the on-site café serves a wide range of specialty coffees and French pastries.

From the press:
  • “Contemporary elegance with a dash of whimsy” -- Conde Nast Traveler
  • “What was once the slightly faded Ambassador East is now hip and sleek; the location's as stellar as always. And the legendary Pump Room restaurant is still there, but the design is all new” -- Fodor’s
