In this video we’re going on a tour of our hotel room at the historic Hotel Essex.
We recently took a “staycation” and traveled to the South Loop to experience a few days of fun. Hotel Essex offered most of what we were looking for – a landmark building in a historic district (Michigan Boulevard Landmark District), close to lots of restaurants, parks, and the lakefront.
Hotel Essex was built in 1961 as the “Essex Inn”, designed by A. Epstein & Sons in the modern architectural style.
We booked a King City View Room, giving us a great view of Grant Park and the lake!
Hotel Essex is located on Michigan Avenue & 8th Street
