Overall a great stay, loved the room (didn’t feel too small for a couple) and the beds were so comfy! Lots of cute photo opportunities!

Hotel's Favorite
I had an amazing weekend with my best friend at the Public Hotel. I loved the efficiency of the Public App and self check-in. The hotel staff was exceptionally nice and helpful. Angel and Wolfgang were the best!! We had one small hiccup and they helped us us every step of the way. We enjoyed dining at Popular and had great pastries and coffee at Louis. We can’t wait to come back!

I stayed here for my birthday. It was a perfect choice. I got beautiful pictures because every spot of the hotel is truly art. The staff is amazing at checking us in, in less than five minutes. I was able to use the facilities like the gym, and everything was super clean and gorgeous. Definitely recommend!

Just checked into Public Hotel for a 7 night business stay. Already beyond impressed with the attentive, accommodating, and friendly customer service. I inquired about a larger room when checking in and Apollo helped me get everything taken care of. He was patient and charming as he liaised with his manager on availability, walked me through the difference in price, and got me fully situated into a larger room before I’d even removed my coat! He’s an absolute gem, and really went above and beyond. I’ve been wanting to stay at this property for ages, and am so thrilled to finally be here. Apollo and team have already made this a great visit. Full review on my stay to follow next week.

Oh my goodness, this place is amazing. My partner and I stayed on the 15th floor and we had an incredible view. The room was so chic and cozy and clean. Plus its in a perfect location, so its easy to get around to anywhere you want to go, but they also have so much right in the hotel. People were hanging out and playing pool in the lobby, we went to the club up on the roof (anther great view), and we grabbed breakfast at the hotel which was incredible. I would definitely recommend staying, and make sure you grab coffee while you're there!

Easy self check in with assistance if needed. Floor to ceiling windows were great for viewing the city from above, or just to let in more light. Small, beautiful room but enough space for 2 to stay comfortably. The restroom does have glasses walls, and you can see out and others in the room can see in while in there. That did make for a few uncomfortable moments. They did add some great little touches like shower amenities and carafe with glasses. The hotel is beautiful and for my daughter it was an Instagram dream. The restaurant is like a beautiful jungle and we just loved the ambiance. The food was amazing, and the staff was top-notch. I honestly can’t rave enough about Popular.

We stayed here for five nights and were told upon check in that our $35 daily resort fee could be used as a credit for food and beverage. We did not get the credits as promised ($175 of value). I called accounting twice and texted them about my bill issue with no response. No coffee in the room or lobby. Won’t stay again
