Here are a few details from the first PUBLIC hotel in Chicago that may interest you: - RESTAURANT: Famed chef Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten will take over the hotel's legendary Pump Room. It's undergoing an extensive renovation that's aimed at recapturing the glamour of the 1930s and 1940s, but with a modern twist. - LOBBY: The lobby will serve as a social hub for guests and the community from day to evening, with distinct purposes varying by time of day. - SNACKS: At the front desk, you'll be able to customize your hotel-room mini-bar. You'll also find a "grab and go" with snacks, toiletries and other items available 24 hours a day. - LIBRARY: You might want to retire to the "Library" to grab dessert, and off of the Library is the candle-lit "Backroom," which doubles as a private screening room whether for poetry, performances or video installations. Starting Sept. 12, you can book a "preview rate" for a newly revamped room at the Chicago hotel starting at $135 a night for a 200-square foot room. Get the full story at USA TODAY
