Jet Set: Chicago Chic

Hi, everyone! Do you remember my post on the super chic Public Hotel in Chicago from a couple of weeks ago? Well, we couldn't get enough of it around here, so LDV Contributor, Brendan is giving us an in-depth view of the hotel with some new images along with some fabulous fashion choices perfect for the windy city!

Hello LDV readers! Brendan here of (BAD) Blog About Design. For this Jet Set post I decided to take us to a city location! So how about Chicago? The Public Hotel, is a classically designed hotel that has that modern touch. The building was originally designed in 1926, and you'll definitely notice this as you walk through the hotel and look at the moldings, and archways. Being in the heart of the city, you'll have much at your disposal. Art galleries, restaurants, and yes ladies--lot's of shopping. (ABOVE) You are greeted by a brilliantly illuminated front entrance. I love the hedges, and old fashioned door, how glamorous! (BELOW 1) When you enter the hotel, you are greeted by an elegant, and simple lobby. Check in at the mirrored desks. I love that the interiors are simple, and allow the architecture to speak. (BELOW 2) The Library Bar is heavily adorned with wood. I love the mix of classic, and modern, as well as the vintage accents. The paintings are classic, the sofas are modern, and the armchairs around the fireplace have that vintage vibe. (BELOW 3) The Pump Room is an awesome restaurant. The menu was crafted by chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The focal point is the lighting! (BELOW 4) If you still want to dine in the Pump Room, you can opt to sit at or around the bar area. The bar looks to be tucked away in a cave. The Pump Room has hosted guests such as Marilyn Monroe, and Frank Sinatra. (BELOW 5) The hotel features 285 guest suites that are minimally designed. I love the desk chair. (BELOW 6) The rooftop deck at the hotel has incredible views of the city. Here one can host a party, a wedding. What do you think of the hotel?
