The preceding reviews pretty much summed up Essence. The big plus for us was its location adjacent to the Prince Alfred and Holy Spirit Hospitals thus saving on parking fees and traffic. One minute walk to admissions. Bus stops at front door. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment facing the main road. Traffic was never an issue as the apartment appeared to be sound-proofed. Unfortunately, the heater did not work and we had only one blanket to share; thankfully we packed our thermals. Staff made the effort to move us to another apartment the next night but we weren't told of this until check-out, without apology. Another frustration was the undercover parking (see review by Juliegundy) which was limited if you came in late, unless you were willing to move your car before 7am. Would stay there again and would recommend to friends but, if staying in winter, would check that the heater is in working condition first.
