Public is cool and location is unbeatable
Public has a trendy vibe. Rooftop is too crowded these days but its a nice perk. Saturday night is loud and I could not sleep from music vibrations. I like lounge, essentials closet, location

6/10 Good

UNCOMFORTABLE!
WISH ID READ REVIEWS! This property truly ‘did it for the gram.’ Beautiful rooftop and property, but the room itself was lackluster, the bed was HORRIBLY uncomfortable, sheets were cheap polyester, but I tried to make the best of it and watch some shows. Unfortunately the TV only plays from iTunes, so I purchased a movie to stream from my phone and it still wouldn’t connect bc the wifi was too weak. I cannot believe what I spent on this trash fire, I’ve stayed in motels that were more comfortable. That said, the photos I took for my socials truly came out beautiful, so if you care more about what people think than your own positive experience, give it a try?
