    Very Clean!

    Rooms very clean, king bed was excellent. Air conditioning, good size TV. Nice view of Grant Park across the street. My only complaint would be the small sized bathrooms with very small tub/shower and no outlets. Staff was nice and greeted us almost every time coming and going. Very nice central location close to shopping, the park and restaurants. Thank you for a great experience Essex Inn! See you soon!

    Good Place

    The staff are amazing here and are so helpful! They gave us lots of vouchers and directions and made us feel extremely welcome. They really helped us get the most out of our short time in Chicago. The rooms are clean and tidy, however due to building works next to the hotel our view wasn’t great but we were only really using the hotel for somewhere to sleep. It’s within walking distance to some of the major sights or there is a bus stop right outside. I would stay here again if I visited Chicago!
