My wife and I stayed at the Essex Inn this past weekend to visit our daughter at UVM. We had a great time. The Inn was beautiful, the staff was articulate and accommodating, the service levels high and amenities outstanding. The Inn was so great that our daughter probably spent more time with us than she might have had we been staying in one of the chain hotels in Burlington.
Friday night we dined in the fine dining restaurant. My wife and I ordered the tasting menu and shared everything. The bone marrow Caesar salad was out of this world, as was the oyster surf & turf. The server realized my daughter doesn't care for meat and graciously steered her away from the gnocchi, made with bone marrow.
Saturday we had a glass of wine in the tavern while watching the college basketball tournament with people from the neighborhood, which was fun.
Sunday my wife and daughter enjoyed the spa while the hotel gave me a late checkout, which was much appreciated.
We REALLY enjoyed it and will be back!
