We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. From the O'Hare airport it takes around 1 hour to get to the hotel (45 minutes by Blue Line train + 15 minutes walk from La Salle station). Hotel has a great location on Michigan Avenue just a short distance from Buckingham Memorial Fountain, Art Institute of Chicago, Millenium park, etc. You can go for shopping on State Street, it takes just about 10 minutes by foot. Hotel Essex Inn offers very comfortable accommodation, with spacious room and bathroom (shower / bath tub and toillet). Unique is a swimming pool with an outdoor terrace where you can relax and watch the daily traffic on Michigan Avenue. It is also possible to use the gym. On each floor are vending machines with good choice of soft drinks. On the 4th floor, in the corridor leading to the swimming pool, is installed ice maker machine. For breakfast you can sit in the Bistro Brasserie LM beside hotel reception, but you can also walk about 5 minutes south along Michigan Avenue to Yolk restaurant, where you can get wider choice of breakfast menu for lower price than in Brasserie LM. We were completely satisfied with our stay in the hotel Essex Inn.
