We stayed at the Essex in early August. Check in was quick and efficent and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious the only gripe was you could not control the air conditioning system.
The location was really good right next to Grant Park and easy walking distance to the Shedd Aquarium and Field Museum. It was more busy than usual as we booked when the Lollapalooza musical festival was on and the place was full of teenagers and parts of the park were closed due to the festival.
We generally walk a lot on holiday and found Navy Pier an easy walk along the lake of about 45 minutes and if you head North straight up Michigan Avenue for about 30 minutes you come straight into the Magnificent Mile. The pool area is really good and one of the highlights especially if you've got children. All in all a great value hotel from which to explore a Beautiful and friendly city. Would definatley stay here again if we came back to Chicago
