Nice overnight visit at the Public. The room was really clean and I loved our huge window looking over the city. Bed was comfortable and it was compact without being tight - certainly a "sexy" option for overnight in the city. My husband booked a room with champagne and

My understanding is the floor. A great view is on the uppermost floors (12-16) while a good view a bit lower like 9-11.
