Hotelier Ian Schrager knows glamour, and The Public is a re-imagined Gold Coast hotspot—an au courant transformation of the historic see-and-be-seen  Ambassador East Hotel.
Located in the Gold Coast, surrounded by million-dollar mansions, the property has managed to woo its neighbors, with whom you’ll rub elbows at the popular Pump Room restaurant.
These days, its new role is to redefine not only Chicago'€™s hotel scene, but the boutique hotel world --- at least, that'€™s what hotelier Ian Schrager set out to do when he took over.
