Wonderful!!

Posted Jan 5, 2015
Pros: The atmosphere is absolutely wonderful! The staff was warm, welcoming, and ready to help. Very pleased with everything.
Location: We walked to Michigan Ave to do most of our shopping. Lou Malnati's, Gibson's, Tavern on Rush, Hash House a go go, all nearby.
We visited the PUBLIC Chicago for my birthday celebration with 2 other couples for a total of 4 days and after our experience at PUBLIC Chicago we can't wait to go back! The lounges in the hotel are wonderful to have drinks before dinner or after (and they are pretty tasty!), we also enjoyed the coffee bar in the morning, and the staff was so accommodating! Perfect location to your just off the beaten path so you don't hear all the city noise when your trying to sleep but are close enough to walk to Michigan Ave to shop. The rooms are clean, nice, on the smaller side but most boutique hotels in Chicago are, unless your staying at the Trump which is another favorite, you should expect this for boutique hotel in Chicago. Prices were great and we will be up in a few months to stay again. Thank you PUBLIC for a wonderful birthday weekend!

Excellent Gold Coast location...

Posted Dec 29, 2014
Pros: Location and staff.
Cons: Need to upgrade the quality of the toilet tissue, the "Kleenex" tissue and there is a need for a comfortable chair for reading in each and every room.
Location: Rush Streets is walk-able as are Elm, Cedar, Oak Streets and N. Michigan Avenue. Multiple restaurants and great retail within blocks of Public Hotel.
The former Ambassador East now Public Chicago has virtually been made over while retaining its pedigree with the continuing use of the Pump Room name and allusion to its history. The lobby is sparkling, the staff is friendly and accommodating and the neighborhood is still a wonderful combination of retail, entertainment and residential.

Comfortable bed

Posted Dec 29, 2014
Pros: the bed
Cons: Place look dated
Location: Bistro Margot was really good 3 blocks north
My husband and I had purchased 2nd to the top of the line mattress from Macy's about 10 years ago. Since then, we have a hard time sleeping else where. But we had a great night's sleep at the Republican, after his company Xmas dinner. Will definitely stay there next time.

Buena experiencia

Posted Dec 8, 2014
Pros: La ubicación y la limpieza.
Cons: El precio es demasiado elevado para no incluir desayuno.
Location: El hotel está a unos diez minutos al norte de Magnificent Mile, zona bastante céntrica y segura, pero tranquila.
El hotel está a unos diez minutos al norte de Magnificent Mile, zona bastante céntrica y segura, pero tranquila. Había muchos restaurantes cercanos donde poder comer o cenar. La habitación es bonita y estaba muy limipia, el primer día las sábanas tenían algún roto pero el segundo se dieron cuenta y las cambiaron. El personal fui muy agradable y el personal de limpieza muy atento (reponían todos los días los enseres de aseo, que hay hoteles en los que tienes que estar pidiento jabón y no es el caso). Cada 10 minutos aproximadamente se encendía el aparato de aire acondicionado funcionaba unos minutos y volvía a apagarse (no se si para que no se empañaran las ventanas... ) no era un ruido insoportable, se podía llevar. El precio es demasiado elevado para no incluir desayuno.

次回も利用したいですね。

Posted Dec 8, 2014
Pros: リラックスできる。エレベーターがすぐに来ること。
Cons: シャンプー(コンディショナー入)は、とても小さい容器に入っています。その量はとても少ない。また、容器を捨てた形跡を残さないと新たに補充されずに一晩だけ困りました。
Location: 徒歩でショッピングも可能です。特に交通の便で不自由を感じませんでした。ただ、住宅街の中?にあるせいか犬を散歩させている人が多いです。
非常におしゃれで落ちついたフロントエリアです。ロビーにはiMacが数台並んでましたがとてもApple製品が似合う雰囲気です。
