Ian Schrager Opens a New Hotel: Public

New, hot hotels are popping up everywhere – the NY Times recently said nearly 100 hotels are scheduled to open in major American cities this year – and so it’s begun! Ian Schrager (the man behind Studio 54) recently opened PUBLIC Hotel in Chicago.

As you can see above, it’s decorated in a “no color” colorway – aka white – and mixes modern and traditional pieces. But the best part is that the rates start at $135 a night.

That’s a heck of a lot better than this $15,000 a night bungalow I fell in love with in September!
