    We had a great start. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Great access to south loop. Price was great. The construction next door was a little loud, but really no bother. Would stay here again for sure.

    Picked because of the location, won't stay again. Called ahead with request for a quiet room away from construction due to the fact I was planning on taping an interview in my room. Was told it would be no problem, just ask when I arrived....More

    What a beautiful spot! Located on the thirteenth floor of the old Chicago Athletic Club ( a gorgeous building on it's own), Cindy's offers wonderful food, drinks, ambiance, and views that are amazing! Seating is available inside and out with stunning views of Millenium Park...More

    Not a fan and probably won't be back for years until after they complete the tower next door. The proximity to the METRA is really nice though. My room could use a serious update but I figure that's in work eventually. I was woken up...More

    Essex Inn location very important in the middle of Michigan Avenue street & near to the important fountain, walking you can make shopping & visit the fountain as you can visit the important restaurant & shopping malls. I advise you to visit this place.
