My brother and I stayed at the Essex a week or so ago. We would never recommend it to anyone. The room was small to say the least. The bathroom was even smaller. No bathtub, a shower measuring slightly more that two feet by two feet. Barely room for a toilet, the dinky shower and a standup sink with no counter. No room for the towels in the bathroom, they hung on the door. When using the toilet you had to put your hand on the wall so that your head fit in a small indent in the wall when you bent over to use the toilet paper.
No airconditioning in the room. We had to open the windows and listen to the street noise in order to cool the room down. The window had a blind that when closed did not keep out the light so that we had light in the room all night long. The room was so small there was no place to hang up clothes.
The breakfast in the morning was comprised of coffee you made yourself from a mechanical coffee maker and a bunch of muffins purchased that morning at a grocery store. There were bananas and apples as well. The cups were paper cups and plastic spoons and knives for one's use, no personnel in sight.
The nightly price was double what I would have expected, we took the room because it was turning dark and we did not want to drive in the dark and all other lodging was full. I would expect this hotel to be competing with Motel 6 and charge a similiar price.
Definitely not recommended because of the price versus what they offer.
