How many times have you thought to yourself, “This year, I’d like to go away for the holidays.” It’s a fantasy we all harbor, to escape your everyday surroundings and get another city’s perspective on the holidays. The current holiday special from the folks at Public Hotel in Chicago could let you do just that.
The 4-star hotel is located right in the heart of Chicago just three blocks from the waterfront, and offers 285 minimal, all-white rooms with Frette linens, curated black-and-white photography collections, custom-designed desks, free Wifi, and mosaic-tiled bathrooms. The hotel is known for its back-to-basics approach to the boutique hotel concept, and offers affordable fare by Chef Jean-Gorges Vongerichten delivered in playful brown paper bags straight to your room.
Available in the days leading up to Christmas (Dec 20-30), a special holiday rate of $125 per night is extended to guests who book directly on the Public website, using the code PROOCT. A complimentary upgrade is also included, based on availability, meaning you could wind up in a Superior King, which offers 10% more space than the standard-size room, and typically sells for about $200 per night.
In addition to Pump Room, Vongerichten’s swanky dining room at the property, the hotel’s lobby lounge is an exceptionally attractive space to do work or meet locals, and frequent movie screenings and DJ nights take place in the hotel’s screening room and Library Bar, respectively. Alternatively, should you feel the need to venture out of the hotel’s stylish environs, Public is conveniently located within walking distance of a host of local attractions, such as Millennium Park, Lincoln Park Zoo, Navy Pier, and the Adler Planetarium.
