Sweeping views of the city.

PUBLIC's universally appealing rooms are seamlessly integrated with smart hotel technology so everything you need is within arm’s reach and right at your fingertips. The Penthouses are located on the top floors of the hotel with sweeping views of the city, Freedom Tower, and bridges. For the full apartment-style experience, we highly recommend the park view lofts.

A unique and holistic experience.

At POPULAR, guests have a special opportunity to enjoy authentic, original, healthy, and globally inspired Peruvian cuisine by chef Diego Muñoz. Chef Diego proudly brings to New York City the best of his Peruvian homeland's multicultural cuisine that includes Incan, Spanish, Moorish, African, Italian, Chinese, and Japanese influences. Michelin-starred chef John Fraser and his team are providing the operational expertise to bring Chef Diego's soulful vision to life. This collaboration is a first of its kind, with Chef Diego in the kitchen and Chef John running front-of-house, and makes it a unique and holistic experience.

Each bar has its own personality.

The five bars at PUBLIC are diverse in mood, vibe, and spirit as well as offerings. Cantine & Pisco Bar is a buzzy spot with a more casual vibe. If you're looking for something a little sleeker, treat yourself to Bar Chrystie which combines New York's famed cocktail culture with Hollywood glam. The Roof is quite literally the hotel's crowning jewel, featuring panoramic views of the city and some of the best DJs for a late-night dance party. Each bar has its own personality, ensuring you plenty of options for whatever mood you may be in.
