This hotel is in a great location. It is a nice place to relax and unwind. The lounge/bar area was nice. The beds were comfortable. The rooms were older, but nice. This is a hidden gem. I would highly recommend staying here.

The hotel is located just minutes off the CBD in a residential area which gives it a homy vibe. Chic rooms and overall design. The team was nice and the wait staff on evening time at the bar were friendly...great cocktails btw! If looking for a low key hotel will definitely recommend

I stayed here with my husband for the weekend and the room we booked was too small to accomodate two massage tables. Travis at the front desk assited us in finding a larger room at no additional cost that met our needs and booked a same day massage for me. noticeably pregnant he was even able to find a massage therapist who does pre-natal massages. Would definately stay again and reccomend to friends and family.

I'll preface this by saying I stayed here about two years ago with my boyfriend. Things could have changed since then, but we had an amazing stay at the time. We love to do Chicago staycations for special occasions and chose to give PUBLIC Chicago a try. We love rehabs of historic buildings and PUBLIC did a wonderful job with theirs.The aesthetic of the lobby and the rooms is beautiful - light and clean, but still rich with character. We stayed in a gorgeous loft room with great views, tons of light and plenty of space to spread out and celebrate. Thankfully, the property is pet-friendly, so we brought our puppy, who also appreciated the extra space to roam. The only thing missing from this room is a bathtub. I imagine, though, in a historic building like this, tubs are a challenge. Also, I wasn't crazy about the cow photos. Everything else is so on point. They just don't fit. The location here is just off the main path, which some could find inconvenient, but we loved. I've also heard some people not thrilled with the noise level in the hotel - due to the restaurant and club on the ground floor. We stayed on a Saturday night and didn't have any issues. We did request a room on the the highest floor possible, so that probably helped. During our stay, we ate dinner at the historic Pump Room. We thought it was slightly overpriced, but still very enjoyable. We also ordered pizza (it was delicious!) from the express room-service menu. While there are several stellar properties that have opened in Chicago over the past couple of years, I still love our time at PUBLIC because of its character and history. It continues to be a standout hotel in my opinion - one that I look forward to returning to soon.

I stayed at this place for a night doing a work meeting and it was worth the stay. I didn't booked it here but due to the Hilton over booked they bounced me to this hotel and at the time I was upset, once I arrived to my amazed it was better then the Hilton I booked for.
