We used the Essex for various activities the week of our wedding although we did not get married there. We were a little apprehensive that the staff might not be accommodating as some of our special requests, but they could not have been more friendly and attentive. They let family members into our room to help us get settled after the wedding, and generally made sure that all of the needs of ourselves and our party were met. Highly recommend it!

The property is great. They charge you a resort fee each day. We were only able to use it one day. A few of the staff need to work on there customer service. Mainly one of the hostes at the tavern. The food was not great there. We were disappointed since it was mainly the only place open on the site. The junction didn’t open till 4pm. Our coffee maker was broken in our room. There is not daily room cleaning. The spa is awesome and the employees were very sweet there! We were not informed about the resort services at check in and they let us know at the spa. The pool could us a cleaning I saw hair in it.

We were only there one night, but the room was very nice and sufficient to our needs. The hallway on the way to the room smelled of food from cooking demonstrations, but I was happy to find that it didn't permeate the room.

The hotel was a short distance from Burlington and both parking and check in were quick and easy. The room and bathroom were spacious and clean. The ac unit was a little loud, but overall it was a nice one night stay. The food at The Tavern was delicious and we were able to reserve a table on the patio which was very pretty. Service was good and the live music was nice. I would stay again, hoping to check out the outdoor pool and grounds next time.

Check in was awesome! Very personable! Room was a great size.The beds were comfortable but the needing not so much, the pillows were to full or lumpy and the sheets were not not soft. The pool was great. The tavern not so much, the table was very sticky and the pepper/salt shakers. The waitress was very friendly. The food was good.
