Public Hotel is a trendy, cool, sophisticated Ian Schrager hotel located in the Lower East Side of New York City.
From the moment you walk up the tree lined walkway and take the neon lit escalator to the reception you realize that you are in an amazing space.
The check in is super simple with tablets set up at stations to self check in but there are very helpful and friendly staff members there to assist. I can not emphasize enough how friendly and cool the staff are! Definitely give a great first impression!
The Lobby Bar is a great seating area with large sofas and work stations, a bar area and a very cool pool table. The blue neon installation in the lobby is such a cool addition to the simple wood decor.
On the ground level there is a terrific space called Louis. Louis is a combination of a coffee shop, bar, market, luncheonette and grocery. Here you can pick up food to go or stay and enjoy the atmosphere.
Public Hotel has a restaurant by renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten called Public Kitchen. This place is gorgeous and the food is remarkable. There is also a lounge called Diego. This is a really cool room with a fireplace and cool sofas.
My favorite area of the Public Hotel is The Roof. This bar offers 360-degree views of New York City. This is an ideal spot to sit on the terrace and relax with a cocktail and soak in the city! At night The Roof transforms into a late-night hotspot with local and international DJ’S from around the world.
The rooms at The Public Hotel are breathtaking! From the. Moment you walk in you know you are somewhere special. The floor to ceiling window has a Fremont control shade that open as you walk into the room. The bed is so comfortable and the decor is simple and sophisticated. I was truly impressed with the amenities, and they even offer complimentary water and wifi, which is unheard of in NYC.
It was amazing waking top in the morning and looking at the beautiful view of NYC.
If you ever get a chance to visit New York CIty’s Lower East Side, I highly recommend that you visit Public, one of the coolest hotels I have ever had the pleasure of staying at!
