For last-minute travelers needing an urban retreat this month, the always-lovable Public Chicago has a "Spring Into Public" deal, making the Midwest seem suddenly very appealing. The promotion offers complimentary room upgrades to anyone who stays at the hotel between April 14 and 21. Not bad, considering that even at the standard room level, you're still getting tons of space, cool art on the walls, and quality amenities (Frette linens, custom desks, and 42" flat screen TVs). Plus, rates start at $125 per night – a steal for this beautiful property, especially in spring.
So, what does an upgrade actually get you?
With functionality as the hotel's main focus, all 285 rooms at Public Chicago are decked in white and beige tones, with low-slung beds and soft, homey lighting. But what you'll get with a Superior King (one step above a standard Guestroom) is simply more space: 300-325 square feet as opposed to 225-295 square feet. Essentially, the same city views, the same bathroom with marble floors and a bathtub – but a little more legroom for your weary traveler needs.
What's even better is the affordable rate: $125 per night, which is a good $35 below the average cost of other Chicago hotels in the same category. Our tip? Book the Superior King at $150, and then really reap the benefits of your complimentary upgrade when you check into a Deluxe King, which boasts a whopping 425 square feet of space, with a few custom-designed furniture pieces thrown into the mix.
The "Spring Into Public" offer is available now by booking at the hotel's website using the code PROEAS.
