The hotel was wonderful as usual but in the evening we had sat down to over look some things on our laptop. We were told the area is only for people drinking. Nobody was there and we had on sheek outfits. I find it offensive as a hotel guest to make me move. The bar was empty. If there was I rush I’d understand.

This property needs security at night to clear people away from the escalators who aren't staying there. We were constantly blocked by ppl taking pictures who clearly weren't staying there.

I had a wonderful stay and I highly recommend the hotel. My only complaint is that there is no free coffee for guests. There is a separate beautiful lounge room for guests only and it has free water and hot tea, but quite honestly it's difficult to understand why coffee is not offered.

Nice, clean and easy stay. Everything was virtual so no interaction with staff. Rooms were a little small but perfect for a romantic get-away

We used to love the Public hotel but we were disappointed by the lack of service and the room with a view we chose wasnt worth it. We had to ask for our room to be made on both nights and I couldnt find someone at the reception when I arrived to get a second key as self-checkout wasnt working and not recognizing me. I appreciate the text communication and gym is good. Location is also great. I would like more service and amenities in the room including basic things such as water.

We stayed at PUBLIC for 2 nights. I was a little nervous about the self-check in but it was super easy and an employee was around to help if anyone needed. Parking was a block away and was super affordable for New York. Loved that we were able to store our bags in a cubby after check out so we didn’t have to lug suitcases around the city. Hotel was very responsive via text and through the Expedia app. Plus the room and our view was beautiful and the hotel had a great ambience. 10/10 would stay at PUBLIC again.
