Public Chicago is a lovely looking hotel with a beautiful entrance way, lobby, restaurant and bar area. Our room was clean and spacious, with a very comfortable bed and good lighting.
I booked the hotel on Hotwire and was initially concerned when I saw the location, however upon our arrival, I was pleasantly surprised. Public is located in a beautiful residential area of Chicago that is an easy walk to many restaurants and cafes on Rush Street and we found it to be very accessible to the downtown area as well.
Unfortunately while we were staying at Public, they were having issues with the elevators and throughout the entire 4 night stay, only one elevator was working. As we were situated on the 14th floor, this was quite inconvenient. We resorted to using the service elevator after watching several full elevators pass us by many times. One elevator for a hotel of this size is definitely not adequate!
If you are looking for a hotel that is slightly removed from some of Chicago's hustle and bustle, but close enough to lots which will make your stay enjoyable, I would recommend that you check out Public Chicago.
