I went to Chicago for the first time in April with my husband and we stayed at Public Chicago on the Golden Coast; it's located in the heart of downtown Chicago. It was actually a recommendation from a friend I met on Instagram, the darling Ashley Sharma. Think chic, sexy, sophisticated, effortless comfort with a muted color palette, all conceived by no other than Ian Schrager. The restaurant, Pump Room, is headed by no other than James Beard award winning chef Jean-George Vongerichten who also happens to be one of my favorite chefs. Let's just say the food was definitely worth every damn penny! The room is lit by huge circle chandeliers all connected to each-other and the vibe is chic and glamour. There is also the Library Room & Coffee Bar serving La Colombe coffee, pastries, juices, and snacks by day and cocktails by night when it turns into a sexy lounge. I must say the rooms were roomy and the lighting was beautiful in the rooms. We took the hotel bikes out one day and rode all around downtown Chicago (a little nuts with the wind and traffic but hey, I'm a New Yorker so whatever!). Really looking forward to going back to Chicago one day, but for now, enjoy these pictures from the hotel, xo.
