I share the same experience as JenniferG2011. A lot of effort and detail in every single space of the hotel. You feel as if all the staff genuinely wants to be at your service! Every request was dealt with efficiently. PUBLIC Chicago definitely has the feel and look of a modern luxury hotel but with Midwestern charm and hospitality.
My room was spacious and spotless. The hotel is in walking distance of everywhere you would ever need to be.
The food at the Pump Room (the beautifully decorated hotel restaurant) was bursting with fresh flavors and very creative. Waiters were extremely knowledgeable about items on the menu - and each had its little story. Very affordable also. I am a big fan of the Farm to table concept and appreciated that there were seasonal ramps and rhubarbs on the menu. Excellent venue for after-work dinner/drinks. It seems like the hip place to be for swanky (but friendly locals)
My favorite cocktail from the bar was the "Pump and Circumstance" Very inventive.
Overall excellent experience, and I will recommend this hotel to my friends!
