We were meant to arrive at the Essex Inn on a Tuesday evening, but travel complications meant we arrived early on Wednesday instead. We phoned the hotel to let them know we would be there the following morning, so they checked us in on the Tuesday so that we could go straight into our room when we arrived.
The hotel provided great information about the city and even had a free shuttle bus to take guests to the main attractions e.g. the mag mile, navy pier and museums! The room was clean, spacious and had everything we needed.
As it was so hot when we visited we took advantage of the rooftop terrace and inside pool! The sun loungers were lovely! We had breakfast in the new Tribute restaurant which was very nice too! All in all this hotel is fantastic if you're working with a smaller budget!
