Good news for fans of Ian Schrager hotels who can’t afford the typical Ian Schrager hotels. The new PUBLIC Chicago – and the modernized Pump Room restaurant – opened in September along Chicago’s Gold Coast as the first in Schrager’s PUBLIC brand, which rejects the opulent design concepts and hefty room rates he espoused over twenty years ago as founder of Morgans Hotel Group (Morgans includes The Royalton in New York and The Sanderson in London, among others). Schrager’s launch of the new PUBLIC brand brings with it a more toned-down approach as well as affordable rates (PUBLIC offers a $135 a night promotional rate for a standard queen room for available through mid-March 2012) which he hopes will draw consumers to this and other planned PUBLIC hotels in New York and elsewhere.
