"Historic hotel with a great location "
This is one of the most beautiful Historic hotels in Chicago. It's also the most affordable. There is only one other hotel with such an incredible lake view in Chicago and that one is far above my price range. The lobby and great hall at this hotel are gorgeous. The desk staff was very friendly and efficient. My room was huge, clean, had that great lake view and 14 ft ceilings, had a comfy bed and a new TV. The hotel definitely shows its age in places - some of the old wood doors had many layers of paint on them, the walls are old plaster and not new drywall, etc. But everything worked and was clean. If you are looking for the latest HGTV modern style, this is not it. But it was clean and beautiful and well-priced. I won't hesitate to book here again.

Chicago's Essex Inn

"Location/customer service"
The location was good - close to what we needed. Bad experience that led to excellent customer service was the fact that there was a 4" long piece of steel (bed frame) sticking out and obscured by the bed skirt. Needless to say, I hit it with my leg above the ankle - drew blood and still have a good bruise. Staff very responsive and caring to this issue and the frame was reversed plus a discount on the stay. This was obviously overlooked by housekeeping staff or didn't care as making a bed, it would have been noticed.

"Affordable downtown "
A step or three above a typical hostel, the hotel, especially the dorm-style shared quarters, makes a stay in the heart of beautiful downtown Chicago very economical. The bar/restaurant on the first floor has excellent food, live music, and draws an eclectic crowd from outside the hotel. The place is an interesting mix of young backpack travelers and suited business types.

"Reasonable hotel price for area"
We read the reviews on Trip Advisor on this hotel, most were good and some were disappointed with the hotel due to how to get there and signage. The hotel is only one floor ( the 40th)of an office building "Chicago Trade Centre". The best review that we read to be able to identify the building was to look for " Four40". Once you see this address number on the building you were there. Yes you need to use 2 elevators to get to the 40th floor but not really a bother. Room was clean and lots of room. The view was spectacular overlooking the bay. Staff at front desk were very accommodating and "Angela was great to deal with. And the gym was great too!! Our experience with the Buckingham Hotel was wonderful. No problems what so ever.
