Stayed there from June 7 to June 12, 2012. The staff is what makes this hotel!!!!!!!! Everyone was very friendly and super nice, especially at check in. We ate at the restaurant several times and it was good and again very nice and friendly staff. The Essex was a sponsor of the Blues Festival that was going on while we were there so it was packed. However, everyone acted like we were their priority and we're nobodys lol.
Remember this is an inn not a 5 star with the whole shebang. The bathroom was tiny and not much closet and storage room. The room was clean and comfortable bedding without bedbugs (or any other critters). We did have a problem with the bathroom light and a/c. The maintenance man appeared quickly and again was very nice.
Will stay there again.
