We decided to stay a couple more nights in Chicago after the conference was over so we booked a suite at the Essex Inn.
The service was top notch as the service staff was very courteous and prompt. The room was comfortable but the noise level was a bit higher than expected as we had a north facing room on a lower floor. However, it wasn't that big of an issue as we were still able to sleep without very much disturbance.
The location is great because it's on Michigan Ave, it's right in front of Grant Park and for anyone that is taking the Chicago Hop on Hop Off Trolley/Double Decker bus tour, there is a location just next door at the Chicago Hilton!
They also offer shuttle service to some of the museums as well in the morning!
The restaurant at the Essex Inn was pretty good as well as I had a chance to have their breakfast. The service was great, and the food was worth the price.
Definitely staying here again if we come back to Chicago!
