PUBLIC Chicago is a complete transformation of the Gold Coast’s famed Ambassador East Hotel and its historic Pump Room restaurant. Rich with a cultural heritage that spans decades, the hotel and the Pump Room was a place to see and be seen and played host to a multitude of celebrities and people from all over the world and all walks of life. A reinvented and reimagined hotel and Pump Room with a new food concept by James Beard award winning chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, will continue to be the fashionable spot it was originally envisioned to be, for an eclectic mix of people who come together to socialize and dine as they have for past decades. It will still be the hotel and Pump Room, but better. PUBLIC Chicago’s 285 spacious and oversized guest rooms and suites are individually furnished with integrity, taste and superb functionality. Decorated in a soothing, color palette, with a mix of custom and iconic hand picked pieces of furniture, the interiors evoke a sense of ease and comfort and the character of a home away from home.
