A group of us recently stayed at PUBLIC Chicago, and I had a great experience. I enjoyed the decor and modern flourishes, the (Deluxe King) room was spacious, the bed was comfortable and the location was ideal.
The food was yummy (though, for what it was, a bit overpriced) and the concierge, Terry, was nothing but kind and helpful in helping me set up some plans.
Unfortunately, the weekend we were there, an elevator was out of service (they only have two), so I either had to wait 10+ minutes for one (which was usually packed), or had to take the stairs. There wasn't really any communication about this, which was disappointing.
Maintenance issues aside, I enjoyed my weekend stay and was well taken care of. The hotel is a bit pricey (especially if you eat or dine), but, as they say, you get what you pay for -- and in my case, it was a pretty terrific weekend. (I'd just make sure the elevators work before you book!)
