Hotel Essex Chicago
  • Experience the Windy City like never before at Hotel Essex Chicago. Situated within the chic building that once housed the Essex Inn, our brand-new hotel welcomes you with effortless style, contemporary amenities and an exceptional downtown location. Grant Park is just across the street, and attractions including Millennium Park, McCormick Place and Shedd Aquarium are a short walk away. Settle in to luxurious rooms showcasing deluxe bedding, espresso machines and complimentary WiFi - not to mention extraordinary views of Grant Park, the lakefront, Buckingham Fountain and the Museum Campus. Fuel up up for day to work, sightseeing or Michigan Avenue shopping at Grant Park Bistro, our cheerful restaurant - or join us in the evening at SX Sky Bar, the city's hottest new nightclub and lounge. Host your next event or group gathering in our flexible venue space, and let us assist you with audiovisual facilities, catering and more. We hope you'll take time to discover downtown Chicago while you're here as well; nestled in the Historic Michigan Boulevard District (known as the "city's front porch"), our hotel puts everything you want to see and do well within reach. Always Iconic. Quintessentially Chicago. We look forward to making your stay special.
