Travel Tuesday | NYC Baby, PUBLIC Hotel
Public, New York - "accessible luxury"
New York City, a brand new luxury 5 star hotel and affordable rooms? Bring it on I say!
PUBLIC is a 28 story tower located on the bowery in NYC’s lower east side. The first in a new series of hotels by Ian Schrager and designed by Herzog & De Meuron, the aim was to create a 5 star luxury hotel but at an accessible and affordable price… and yay for us, they’ve done it – rooms start at just $150 USD per night.
‘I truly believe that everyone deserves a one-of-a-kind experience that lifts their spirits and makes their heart beat faster, one that elicits an emotional response,’ says schrager. ‘to deliver this at a reasonable price point is even more on the mark for today’s savvy and sophisticated traveller.’
The hotel features include floor to ceiling windows showcasing the incredible view, touch controlled blackout blinds, 50” smart tvs and the fastest internet New York has to offer as well as absolutely stunning interiors, which is why PUBLIC made it onto DOT + POP, obviously! If you are lucky enough to book yourself a loft room, you can expect open plan layouts with separate zones for sleeping, relaxing, entertaining and working as well as an interior that is thoughtfully selected, luxuriously furnished and super inviting.
A large outdoor rooftop terrace offers stunning views of the city and a place for bbq’s, sunset drinks and gatherings with friends. A rooftop garden is the perfect spot for an afternoon relaxation session, an indoor bar which has a DJ after dark and epic city skyline views means dancing on site is a must and the hotel’s restaurant, run by chef jean-georges vongerichten has a smoker, wood grill and exquisite menu which cannot be missed!
