Even before I checked in, I was greeted in a personal way. After I checked in I was told to dial ) if I needed help. There was never the need.

perfect location

Would recommend Mon, Jan 19, 2015
Although the room was small, it was very tidy and the staff was pleasant. The shuttle driver went out of his way to drop us at the place we wanted to go and was very helpful in showing us other places to see on his route.

Very happy

Would recommend Sun, Jan 18, 2015
This was our first stay here and we were very pleased with our experience. We had a corner room overlooking grant park and the lake, and the staff was very courteous and helpful. The pool area and fitness center area was one of the best we have experienced. The only thing that was a surprise was the $75 charge up front for incidentals, but understandable when you pre pay for a room. Overall very pleased and would definitely return and definitely recommend the Essex.

Still A Nice Place To Be

Would recommend Mon, Nov 24, 2014
The Essex isn't a fancy, luxury hotel. It is a clean, relatively inexpensive, and totally pleasant place to be with a great location and friendly, helpful staff. Restaurant menu is limited, but the food is good and the wait staff is also friendly and reasonably efficient. We'll be back!
