Exceptional 10.0
The hotel was amazing. Close to food, attractions and shopping. I will stay here again on my next trip to Chicago.

Essexcellent!
We were very pleased with The Essex. Its location on Michigan Avenue, and proximity to shops, theatres and restaurants. The room was very clean and comfortable. I especially liked the tiled floor. The food and service in the restaurant was excellent.

Nice First Visit
Check in was swift. The room, 324, was fine - clean, quiet, sunny. The restaurant was reasonably priced for their offerings. The location was fine for my purposes. There is a bus stop across the street.

Very good 8.0
Amazing prime location & friendly staff.
Pleasant and friendly crew, the location by itself is absolutely amazing, clean rooms, but i wish they were carpeted ( cold feet). I was in town on a shooting ( photography) assignment for a few days. The coffee machine stopped working for some reason ( plenty of water - turn on - pod in) probably a minor hiccup in the big scheme of my stay. This hotel’s prime location was one of the main reason to choose it with doors on Michigan avenue.
