Best for Af­ford­able Lux­ury USA

Harper's Bazaar (India) - - BAZAAR ESCAPE -

10 Ian Schrager, co-founder of the le­gendary Stu­dio 54 and erst­while owner of Gramercy Park Ho­tel, New York, is known to break the mould in the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try. His lat­est of­fer­ing is a take on af­ford­able chic; an amal­ga­ma­tion of ideas taken from lux­ury, bou­tique, and se­lect ser­vice class ho­tels. There­fore the re­strained style of Pub­lic de­rives from Schrager’s fo­cus on es­sen­tial ser­vices. His trade­mark touches are ev­i­dent in the sub­tle, stylish back­drops in the ho­tel, in the re­laxed vibe, and warm ser­vice. The ho­tel is lined with col­umns fash­ioned from wood and quirky por­traits, in­spired by the pro­duc­tion team be­hind the Mc­queen ex­hibit at the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Mu­seum of Art . The rooms are a per­fect mix of cosy and hip, re­plete with wood-pan­elled fire­places and fur­ni­ture with strong lines. Re­tire grace­fully af­ter a long day at the ul­tra­chic Vene­tian-style li­brary bar, or be daz­zled by the eclec­tic am­bi­ence of the Pump Room, a favourite with the celeb set.
