Great hotel for the price. Some things to keep in mind. You are in Chicago, in the loop. $41 parking is standard for valet service in hotels I've stayed at in the area. This is an older building so yes it is not brand new. You are not getting the Waldorf at a discount rate. If you are expecting a room and bathroom the size of your house and the other things I mentioned bother you look elsehwere.
If you are looking for a nice, clean, well run hotel for a family stay at a reasonable price this is the place for you. Great views, friendly staff, perfect location. This is a great hotel for those who care less about their hotel feeling like a fancy house, and don't mind it feeling like, I don't know, a hotel room. If you care more about a great location, value, and comfort as opposed to having a 500 sq ft bathroom, Essex Inn is perfect. Rooms are decent size, yes the bathrooms are a bit small, but come on it's a bathroom, do you really need it to be that big?
This will definitely be our first choice for a hotel when we visit Chicago (which we hope to do often). And we will definitely recommend this hotel to others.
