Chicago's Essex Inn

800 S. Michigan Ave. (E. 8th St.) Chicago IL

This hotel serves as a solid choice for museum- and festival-goers.

Although the exterior of this hotel is not particularly inviting, the clean rooms are tastefully decorated. As well, the views of Lake Michigan and Grant Park from some of the accommodations are worth the stay in and of themselves. A highlight of the hotel is its rooftop swimming pool on the fourth floor, which is surrounded by retractable glass and leads out to a terrace made of Brazilian hardwood. The hotel also offers a large fitness center featuring all types of workout equipment. The on-site restaurant includes a bar and serves American cuisine at tables overlooking Michigan Avenue. Theater, sports, shopping and museum packages are available. Located across the street from Grant Park, where many summer festivals take place, this property is within walking distance of Buckingham Fountain, the Museum Campus and Soldier Field. It offers shuttle service to many of Chicago's finer shopping districts.
