Public Interest




SO CHIC!

Summer travels means staying at chic hotels all over the globe. I've always had a deep fondness for the ultra chic ones. At present, I'm thoroughly impressed with PUBLIC Chicago and finds it extraordinarily grand. As an interior designer, I often scrutinized the decor of the hotels I visit or happen to be staying  - even down to the silverware. How about you?

Ian Schrager's PUBLIC Hotel in Chicago

Hotelier/perfectionist, Ian Schrager's PUBLIC hotel is located in a landmark building of Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood. Despite its name the hotel is discreet and has a very private feel. In truth, this is a home away from home with cool lighting, decorative art deco door knobs, attentive service, "non-colors" decorations which provide a serene, elegant, and non-sterile look. But there's nothing colorless about the hotel's ambiance, especially the Pump Room, once home to the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra. The various times that I stayed there, I've always set aside some time to come down and experience their beautiful and energetic bar/restaurant. PUBLIC Chicago is the sort of hotel that suits my design aesthetics to a T. If I was to design a hotel, it would come up pretty close to PUBLIC. And it will be simply splendid.
