I was traveling on business and my secretary found this hotel. Nothing was bad, but compared to other hotels it was a disappointment. Very expensive, super SUPER tiny rooms, no coffee in the room (really!?), and a miserable fitness facility. Free WiFi was a definite plus. The location was OK... plenty of places to eat nearby, plus a Whole Foods... More

I stay at the Hotel Felix every time I go to Chicago. The location is excellent and the hotel is charming. There is an excellent on site restaurant, and just 4 blocks from the hotel is all the shopping Chicago has to offer. In addition to the restaurant at The Felix there a many many excellent ones within walking distance.

Here for business. The rooms are over € 300,- per night. The rooms are very small. No mini bar, alsmost no place for your clothes, tiny bathroom. The breakfast is fat. Its old school American, fries, fries and fries everywhere. Nothing really healthy to choose from. Really overpriced hotel and the location is not so good as well, there are... More

I was in Chicago for work, and this hotel was recommended by a co-worker. I checked in around 6pm and couldn't wait to get to my room, as I had had an early AM flight and went straight to office. I got upstairs and my room was located right off the elevator (I knew I should have asked to be... More

My wife and I would recommend the Felix for anyone wanting to stay in a smaller friendly hotel rather than an impersonal tower block.. It was exceptionally clean and perfectly located to explore the City. The room though smaller in comparison to the larger hotels was perfectly adequate and comfortable for a couple. Free wifi and safe in room was... More

A friend and I stayed at the Hotel Felix for 4 days over Memorial weekend. This hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to everything. If you are looking for reasonable parking use SpotHero – I was able to find parking right across the street for $28/day. Upon arrival we were given a room with 2 beds and it... More

The hotel is well-located, clean and friendly. Our room was very small and cramped, the bathroom uncomfortably so. The restaurant attached to the hotel was extremely disappointing. The service was slow and they delivered pancakes with the sauce that we specifically asked them to omit. A replacement plate of pancakes took so long that the meal was over for the... More

Stayed at the Hotel Felix in mid May 2015. It is ideally located for anyone willing to walk the city. I walked 29.5 KM while I was in Chicago. The city is clean and inviting. Hotel Felix had small rooms, but were ideal for the amount of time we were spending in the rooms. Bed was a queen and very... More

I was worried when I "won" this on priceline. The reviews I read were not very positive. However, this hotel is just fine. The location a few blocks off Michigan Ave. is great. The rooms are definitely tiny, but the bed is comfy and the bathroom was nice. You just have to be careful navigating around the bed. Staff is... More
