As someone who has stayed in many properties in NYC in the last five years, Public really does stand out. Beautiful design in the rooms and public spaces, immaculately clean, great food/drink (both on the Rooftop and at the downstairs options). I'm looking forward to coming back.

I am a huge Ian Schrager fan and so was expecting to love this hotel and really loved the easy self check in. As usual, it has all his special touches, the room was beautiful and had the most comfortable bed. The staff were utterly delightful and I cannot wait to go back.

Just a genuinely warm and welcoming experience at Public. Staff is very kind and attentive and kindly answered my seemingly naïve questions. It was my first time booking a hotel by myself as a gift to myself and I’m so genuinely happy with the stay. Highly recommend it~

First time at Public. Excellent food/dining and areas to relax and unwind. Great rooms - they are compact, but very efficient use of space, very clean and comfortable. The rooftop bar is a MUST. Amazing views. I'd recommend this hotel and will return.
