    Very nice hotel. Pet friendly.

    Very disappointed. Would never stay here again
    The room was overpriced. It was misadvertised.....40 miles from Stowe...NOT 15! Room was dirty, bed was uncomfortable and not worth the price.

    We had booked at an Airbnb that was not as it presented and had to find a last minute room. The Essex has been amazing.

    We needed a Walk-in shower and they do not have any. they said they did, we moved from a suite to a handicap room because we need a walk-in shower. the bed was OK but quite springy and lumpy. the food was good, the amenities were nice, and the people were nice. I might stay again, but will request the suite, if you want to eat at the Tavern, go down early and get a pager, the wait was over an hour and I think they forgot about us, and then gave me a rickety chair.

    Needs an overhaul
    Room on the third floor. The heating unit was so loud it woke us up at night every time it turned on. That was nothing though compared to the rude people at the spa. I was told that there were no robes or slippers available. As I am walking out to the pool the office door was open and I saw stacks of robes. I asked one of the two people in there for a robe and she actually rolled her eyes at me and then smirked at the other person. As for the spa the showers had cracked containers on the wall that were suppose to contain shampoo etc that were mostly broken
