My Nov 2022 stay at Public hotel.
Public Hotel is beautiful with great amenities. The room was very clean and comfortable with an upscale feel. You can tell the hotel common areas have been designed to promote congregating. Lots of places to hang out and chill. The hallway lighting is dark. The check-in took much longer than expected because their app doesn't recognize any confirmation number not generated directly by Public. If you book through or any other site, be prepared to wait because there is just one staff member at a podium. I paid extra for a "Great View" room and faced the alley and parking lot.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay at Public Hotel. I understand that the hotel is mainly self service but upon arrival there was no one near the check-in area to welcome us and it was the same when we checked out. Also, we needed additional wash cloths but were pointed to the essentials closet which only had full sized towels.

Best hotel in nyc by far
As soon as we got to the hotel we had nothing but the best experience. Two of the employees which I wish I remember their names were so sweet and welcoming. The woman with the long braids got us our key for our room right away and even brought us champagne to celebrate our engagement. I couldn’t have asked for a better stay. We will deffinetly come back here.
