Hotel Description

Ian Schrager is at it again. The boutique-hotel innovator has always been ahead of the curve, and with his nascent PUBLIC brand it’s apparent he’s caught on to something the world’s luxury hoteliers have failed to notice: inclusive is the new exclusive. There’s a little hint there in the name, of course, but it’s apparent that from bottom to top, a place like New York’s PUBLIC is meant to be warm, open, and welcoming — without sacrificing style or excitement. There’s no front desk, but fear not: when you arrive, one of the hotel’s “PUBLIC advisors” will find you and check you in.

Your room will be suitably Schrageresque, and attractive in its quietly elegant minimalism. It’s all about contrast; these tranquil rooms, with their triple-glazed soundproof windows, are just what you need after a night out on the Lower East Side — or a night out in the hotel’s public spaces, for that matter. There’s no room service, and nothing but water in your minibar, so you’re more or less forced to be social — and thanks to multiple bars spanning from the lobby to the rooftop to the events space and dance club that is PUBLIC Arts, there’ll be plenty going on, and a restaurant by Jean-Georges Vongerichten will quickly become a fixture on the downtown food scene as well. You’re welcome to see for yourself.
