Loved this hotel, great location and the staff was awesome—especially Suzy at the front desk! I don’t think you will find a more complete hotel in the city. Rooftop bar, restaurants, a night club and more all under one roof. Not to mention it’s always full of people playing pool, studying, working, etc. Great environment and will be back!

Hotel's Favorite
I had the pleasure of staying at PUBLIC visiting a friend on a layover in the city and will never stay anywhere else again.. we had such an amazing experience! The property is ahead of it's time, beautiful in design with ease of access, common areas for socializing that make you feel at home, and a top notch service staff that are always available and ready to help you with anything you need. The room made efficient use of the size and never felt crowded, taking advantage of every inch of space. The bed was so comfortable that I asked for the bedding information so I can buy it for my own home and the floor to ceiling views were incredible. We had the opportunity to enjoy drinks on the rooftop with stunning 360 degree views. Anything you need is only a click away with the concierge readily available by text or email to save you a trip to the lobby. I am a travel agent and get the opportunity to visit many wonderful, luxury hotels and PUBLIC truly is at the top of it's mark. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

I’ve stayed at other hotels in New York, but after staying at the Public I've decided that this is where I’ll be staying from now on. We absolutely loved the hotel. The aesthetics of the lobby, the lobby bar, our room, and the roof were on point. I’ve never deliberately spent so much time in my hotel/hotel room on vacation. Everything was perfect. In fact, we felt so at home that we extended our trip another 3 days!

What a beautiful hotel. Located in walking distance to China Town and Little Italy. The entrance to the hotel is beautiful, you will definitely get great pictures. Once you enter the hotel there’s a cute little Cafe, they have fresh fruit, breakfast, lunch, coffee and etc… You won’t go far if you’re looking for a bite. Check in is in the second floor and the stairs going up to check in are beautiful, if you love selfies this is the place to do get so many. On the second level they have not 1 but 2 beautiful restaurants, check in, and a pool table. Check in was fast, less than 2 seconds, the staff are friendly and helpful. “Jean thank you for all your help.” The restaurant on the second level has a beautiful seating area, super relaxed vibes. The couch is beautiful and comfortable. The hotel is clean, spacious and amazing lighting. Our room was beautiful, great views, and you get complimentary water, and wine. The rooftop was amazing, the restaurants are delicious. Definitely try the ceviche. I will definitely will stay here again.
