  • Great rooms. Amazing location. Amazing staff

    We loved the Essex Inn. The price and location were amazing! The views from the rooms were solid (Lake Michigan and Museums). Most of all the staff was amazing and accommodating, specifically Michelle at the front desk and Haji the security person. They are great human beings who went out of our way to help us out with some things that we needed. Thanks Essex Inn!

The bellman especially went above and beyond and should be commended. This hotel has great amenities, is in a great location and is a great value. I would reccomend this hotel without hesitation. The Essex will be my first choice when visiting Chicago!

  • Very Good Experience

    We were very pleased with our experience at the Essex. We chose it purely because of its proximity to the Shedd Aquarium and Field Museum, without knowing much else about it. We were very happy with the 2-room suite, the beautiful view, and most of all the excellent customer service. I felt bad about how many times I bothered them with my various questions, but everyone at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay here again next time we visit Chicago!

    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.
