Public Chicago has a Spring Fever package with rooms starting at $140 a night. (Chris Walker / Chicago Tribune…)
Public Chicago has gotten a lot of buzz since it opened in October. Most recently, the first entry in Ian Schrager’s new brand made Conde Nast Traveler's "best new hotels" list for 2012. What’s so special? “Contemporary elegance with a dash of whimsy,” the magazine said. Here’s another great reason to go: $140-a-night stays through June 30.
The deal: Public Chicago started life as the historic Ambassador East Hotel, a vintage grand hotel. Schrager's redo features things such as an "un-color" color palette and spacious guestrooms. The Spring Fling offer starts at $140 a night plus tax.
When: The offer is good for stays through June 30.
Tested: I found the $140 rate available mostly for midweek stays and $165 a night on weekends. I found availability for a room with a king-sized bed May 21-23 for $140 a night plus tax. How much do you save? Best available rates for the same rooms on the same nights start at $240 a night plus tax -- up to $100-a-night savings.
