Why Stay At Public Chicago

Ian Schrager's relaunch of a historic Chicago hotel brings an infusion of style to the Gold Coast neighborhood.

The Scoop

Originally opened in 1938 as the Ambassador East, this storied hotel and its iconic Pump Room restaurant once hosted Hollywood icons including Marilyn Monroe and Humphrey Bogart. In 2011, it debuted as a property of a different sort: hotelier Ian Schrager's Public Chicago. Even with a more affordable price tag, the hotel spaces are impeccably designed. Grand archways separate the lobby from The Library, where travelers lounge on lamb's wool chairs around a modern fireplace. Schrager's own bedroom served as inspiration for in-room accents such as the wood nightstands built into oversize headboards. The final touch: Schrager reopened the Pump Room under superstar chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

Insider Tips

Check out the portrait of Ol' Blue Eyes at the Frank Sinatra Booth (his favorite table) in the Sun Room.

There's an on-site gym, but guests can also drop in on group fitness classes at nearby David Barton.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) which is approximately 18 miles from the hotel. Anticipate between 30 and 45 minutes of travel time depending on traffic.
