The Publica Isrotel has debuted in Hertsliya, Israel as the newest addition to Marriott’s Autograph Collection. The 159-room boutique concept is located just north of Tel Aviv with a design from Israeli architect Dana Oberson.
Located on the ground floor is the Stage, a venue for the members-only City Club members, who have access to live performances, lectures, and workshops. Along with Mediterranean eatery Greco, the indoor-outdoor lobby lounge is crafted with a chic, industrial aesthetic. Inspired by the region’s high population of startups, the hotel boasts a communal workspace on the sixth floor with multifunctional seating arrangements, soundproof phone booths, and coffee and beer taps. Just a floor above, the rooftop pool and pool bar overlook ocean views.
From multifaceted mosaics that depict intricacies of the Israeli identity to a light wall that serves as a video screening platform, public spaces are also appointed with contemporary Israeli artwork.
