This past month has been crazy busy with work, so I decided to take a midweek stay-cation at the Essex Inn with one of my best girlfriends. We chose to do the Shopping Mini-Cation. After checking in and receiving my shopping goodie bag, I came up to my room and immediately loved the layout. The view is beautiful – you can see The Museum Campus, Grant Park and Lake Michigan from my room’s floor-to-ceiling windows.
After getting settled, my friend and I went down to the Brasserie by LM hotel restaurant to use our free dinner voucher (part of our mini-cation package). I originally thought the prix fixe menu was only for a main course, but we also had the option of soup or salad and dessert! The food was delicious – I’d definitely recommend the macaroni and cheese, as well as the fish of day, which was scallops. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was relaxing. I’d definitely recommend it.
Looking forward to our shopping day tomorrow!
