Ian Schrager’s reincarnation of the once-iconic Ambassador East hotel, Public Chicago, shows that the city could be making a play to move up from its role as America’s ‘Second City.’ A 21st century Mies van der Rohe vision of modern elegance, the hotel has bigger rooms with better views than anywhere in New York, and a Jean-Georges-run restaurant and bar where international glitterati congregate.
Public Chicago offers discerning visitors understated glamour, sophisticated setting and deluxe accommodations in the heart of downtown Chicago. The central location of Public Chicago Hotel makes for an ideal starting point for exploring the shopping and nightlife options along Michigan Avenue, Oak Street and Rush Street. Just a short distance to Millennium Park, museums and cultural centers, and the Loop business district.
The 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, with a mix of custom and iconic hand-picked pieces of furniture, the interiors evoke a sense of ease and comfort and the character of a home away from home. Bathrooms contain bathtubs, custom sinks and marble tile. Rooms include customized minibars, iPod docks, and 42-inch LCD televisions.
Amenities include complimentary wireless Internet access, a 24-hour fitness center, on site bicycle rentals, a screening room for private parties and live performances, and a 24-hour front desk. The multi-function Living Room has intimate seating areas, computer stations, and work tables. Guests can dine at The Pump Room restaurant and bar, serving regional cuisine created by award-winning Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, as well as updated classics from the original Pump Room's 1938 menu.
Nearby, the Tavern on Rush serves such steakhouse fare as bone-in filet mignon and New York strip.
