The Essex is right on Michigan Ave. we have stayed here prior to this last remodel. The hotel is very comfortable, and has very adequate amenities. We love staying in this area with its closeness to public transportation and walking to a lot of venues. The check in process was seamless. We will definitely stay here again.
