      Deceptive pricing. The Essex charges all guests a mandatory "hotel fee" which is not included in the room rate. I paid more than expected and felt cheated and lied to.

      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.

      Simply amazing. The staff was superb. Eddie and his staff in the restaurant was like family by the time I left. Just really nice.

      our room was a little small. The hotel staff was amazing! Overall, we enjoyed our stay, but would opt for a bigger room if we chose to stay at Essex in the future.
