In 2008 Chicago’s Essex Inn was Green Seal-certified Bronze for our progressive environmental policies. Our hotel meets the Green Seal Environmental Standard for U.S. Lodging Properties for waste minimization, water and energy efficiency, hazardous substances handling, and environmentally responsible purchasing.
