At the top of the list in Chicago is, not surprisingly, The Public Hotel which has not only a coffee bar, plenty of electrical outlets, cool architecture but also according to one nomad nicer bathrooms than Starbucks.

The one-cup wonder will be sold in supermarkets and warehouse club stores but the product is also set to be placed into over 500,000 hotel rooms next year.
