Public is Ian Schrager’s Masterpiece

I’ve stayed at Public 3 or 4 times now and absolutely love it. My room was in perfect condition and didn’t notice any wear & tear which is rare in hotels after a year or so. I’ll totally stay there again!

  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Property uses some sort of millennial approach to check-in where you don’t actually interact with a human.. this sets the tone for the entire experience as it’s incredibly uncomfortable
