The staff at the Essex was first class all the way. They supplied me with an upgrade stay with my significant other for a minimum cost. Their security staff immediately dealt with a rude, obnoxious party that was keeping guests up at 4 am in the morning. The hotel is a long walk from the Magnificent Mile, but the hotel offers a free shuttle to the Mile, Navy Pier, and other Chicago landmarks daily. A free pool and free internet are always welcome as well. I would stay away from room service as cost is high, and food not that good. Quality eateries for breakfast, lunch, and dinner can easily be found within blocks. Rooms will be small, but they will be clean. You are not going to get 5 star accommodations at the Essex, but they never claim that you will. They are exactly who they say they are, which is refreshing with hotels, and they do not have the snobbery found in other hotels city wide. The rooms do not have a thermostat due to it being an older building, so be prepared to adjust to the hot and cold of a room on the fly.
