Why it’s Special

Hotel Overview

The functional rooms provide both comfort and style, with exclusive fabrics and imported 300 thread count Frette linen. The bathrooms are spacious and feature Corian sinks and Thassos mosaic floors.

Food + Drink

The Public Hotel Chicago is home to the Pump Room, which has been one of the city’s most fashionable social spots for decades.
