Public, conceived by Ian Schrager, is an entirely new class of hotel with its innovative, sophisticated, authentic style; spot-on, personalized, empathetic “essential” service; lasting comfort with complete functionality. Public Chicago is a complete transformation of the Gold Coast’s famed Ambassador East Hotel and its historic Pump Room restaurant.
A reinvented and re imagined hotel and Pump Room with a new food concept by James Beard award winning chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten is a fashionable spot for an eclectic mix of people who come together to socialize and dine as they have for past decades. Its 285 spacious and oversized guest rooms and suites are individually furnished with integrity, taste and superb functionality. Decorated in a soothing, “no color” color palette, the interiors evoke a sense of ease and comfort and the character of a home away from home.
