Essex Inn has comfortable rooms, but the main thing is its excellent location. It's five blocks from the Art Institute. It is only a few blocks from Chicago's subway system, so you can get anywhere quickly from the Essex Inn. It doesn't have a restaurant,...More
Great location! Super easy to walk to museums and grant Park! Rooms good, nothing special. The TV reception cuts in and out which is frustrating. One of the lamps in the room seems to be shorting out. Room for improvement but an overall good experience.

This place had all we’re looking for:
Clean, quiet, located by the grant park, kind staff, luggage store, room service for pizza and a good view.

Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours.

the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
