Baltimore, Maryland1 contribution1 helpful vote
I've been fortunate to stay in many great hotels around the world, and I can honestly say that there's nothing quite like PUBLIC. One of the 1st impressions is Chrystie Park, which feels and looks like an oasis. The vibe inside the hotel is hip and inviting. All of my meals were memorable. From the Pisquo Sour at the Pisquo Bar...to Ceviche in Cantina...to brunch in Popular. The views up at The Roof and the creative drinks are 2nd to none. Two of my favorite features of my guest room were the super-comfortable bed and the way the room "greeted me" when I first turned on the main light. All of the staff were genuine, attentive and hospitable. Shout out to Demario, Nastasia and the PUBLIC Advisor team. Also, Ricardo and Isaiah in Popular made me feel at home. At The Roof, Ariel, Andrew, Dante, Heather and their entire crew operate the best bar with the best views in Manhattan. I will be back for sure!

This was my first hotel stay since the start of COVID. It was spectacular! The moment I arrived at the hotel I felt like I was at home. The staff in the lobby was super friendly and accommodating and patiently showed me how to check in on my own for next visit! The food was exceptional in the new Peruvian restaurant and I love the healthy options! The room was a perfect weekend retreat! It was crisp, clean and beautiful! The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept on! Until next time Public thank you!!!

I had a wonderful first stay at The Public. Everyone who worked there was beyond helpful, from the doormen, to the check-in team, to the servers at The Roof. The rooms were beautiful and modern, and the location is fabulous! So many great restaurants/bars/shopping attractions within very close walking distance. The Roof is not to be missed - go at sunset for incredible views and cocktails! I am looking forward to my next stay at this property.
