Great for a Boutique Hotel

Great Location and Great value. We stayed March 20 2012. We woke up one morning caught the mega bus to Chicago. This hotel was prefect because it was walking distance to The Navy Par(for us..we love walking) the Field museum and the water. Oh yes I really enjoyed the docks. We got our room off hotwire 3 star for $80. The bed was perfect I loved the lights over the bed. However the bathroom was rather small. And the t... view more

Good location and really good value.

We spent a week in Chicago this July and just loved every minute of it, well except of course the run in with the wacko on the rid line, but what are you going to do?! We stayed four nights at the Monaco (spectacular) and three nights here at the Essex Inn. This helped to save some money and provided a pool for our son. Our double room was about $100 less per night than the high end hotels and that worked out fine. T... view more

Not bad for Michigan Ave

If you want a clean comfortable room at a great price on Michigan Avenue look no further. The run down look of the hotel can be deceiving but the staff are courteous and helpful. They even allowed us to park and store our bags five hours before check-in time. The pool is wonderful and so is the gym. If a good room to sleep is all you need than look no further. A note of caution however, if you use the valet service (... view more

4 star hotel for a 2 star price

Great discount hotel in a great location. It's unbelievable the price I got on this hotel and it's right next to Millenium Park, the Art Institute and the Science Musuem. The hotel also has free shuttles to the musuems hourly. The rooms were clean and big by Chicago standards. The staff was very helpful and the pool and workout room were the best.

Great stay at Great rate!

We stayed at the Essex in Sept 2002 when we came to town for the Rolling Stones concert. Wanted to be in the ""heart"" of the city to take in some sights the day after the show. Found the Essex for $99/night and it was perfect! No frills hotel but clean rooms, friendly staff, on-site valet parking, restaurant, fitness room and pool...all right on S. Michigan Ave. Walked to Navy Pier, Aquarium, Mag. Mile, Grant Park, ... view more
