Why I keep coming back!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 13 Sept 2020
Whenever I need a change of scenery or change of pace, I book a stay at Hotel Essex because I know it’ll meet my needs! Everything and everyone is always consistent: the spaces are always clean, navigating the hotel/space is always easy and most importantly, the staff and their service is amazing! Everyone I’ve worked with has been pleasant, helpful and informative! Tiara, particularly, provides a truly friendly, genuine, and personable service in the few seconds it takes to check in with her at the front desk! Its really such a sweet touch to be remembered from your previous stays and to be really asked how you’re doing and if you need anything during your current stay!! I really think people like her make the world go ‘round!! Thank you Tiara and thank you hotel Essex!!

Tiara was really warm and helpful and was quick to welcome us as we walked into the hotel. We’ve had a great experience here and would def come back. We booked a skyline king room and she put us in a corner room over looking Grant Park—amazing views.

Tirara made the stay that much better and it’s only my first day. From the time I walk in I felt just as comfortable as being at home with the comfort of Tiara at the front door. She deserves a raise for being the bubbly person she is during these hard times good people like that are hard to come by so I hope she is well taken care of as an employee she will be hard to replace.

Tiara was very helpful at the front desk and really eased our stay at the hotel. Felt as if she was a family member and not just a employee of the hotel! Our room was amazing and I’d stay again! Tiara really made my birthday special with the room.
