  • The hotel is in a good place

    It is so convenient so you can walk to the main attraction in the downtown and the museums.  It is easy to take busses to other places.  I think I will come here again.

  • "Great place to stay to visit Chicago"

    Hubby had a business trip and I tagged along.,  Great location!  We had a corner room that had a great view of downtown Chicago.  Not super fancy.  It was worth the price.

  • "Good price, nice stay"

    We were recently visiting Chicago and stayed at Essex Inn hotel.,  The place was nice, clean and people at the front desk and bellman very knowledgeable and very friendly.  The hotel also has a pool.  Kids were really happy and had a great time.  The hotel has a good location; across from Grant Park and within walking distance from museums and some good places to eat.  I will definitely stay again at the Essex Inn.
