I stayed at Hotel Felix for value and history. This hotel sits in a fine River North location close to the more touristy side of Chicago and in a historic building with character. Price was a consideration of mine and the rate I obtained I think through priceline.com was fair given the alternatives. My critical comments are for management as... More

I had originally booked a room with a single double bed for myself and a co-worker friend. Another co-worker decided to join us on the trip and I called Hotel Felix directly and asked to change the reservation to a room with 2 double beds several weeks before the trip. Upon our early morning arrival in Chicago we went and... More

We chose this hotel for the last minute deal we got on it. I didn't think we were going to stay there, as they were sending people to other hotels because of an over-booking problem when we got there. However, we were surprised to find we had a room. The hotel looks to be fairly recently renovated, the staff was... More

Stayed 3 nights in June for business. Let me just start by saying the rooms are tiny. I had to bring the ironing board in to the bathroom just to iron my clothes. The bathroom compared to the room was large. The location is great, close to water tower and the mag mile. The Internet was unreliable and painfully slow... More

Hi chicagotraveler9411 - Thank you for your detailed review and for staying with us. While our rooms are cozy in nature, we find most guests appreciate our urban location, which is just steps away from Chicago’s landmarks, including the Magnificent Mile, museums, shopping and more. We’re happy to hear you were able to visit neighboring restaurants while staying in Chicago.... More

We stayed here because we got a great deal on Priceline. We didn't know the hotel we were accepting until after it was purchased. The room was quite small but frankly we didn't spend that much time in it. It is close to many attractions so that is nice. Its not far from public transportation. There is no free breakfast...

The hotel itself is nice. The lobby is pretty and the rooms are comfortable and well-maintained. The hotel is in a good location that is walking distance to many great restaurants and attractions. However, the service of the staff left much to be desired. They were not very friendly or helpful. I have two specific examples. When we checked in,... More

We enjoyed out stay at the Hotel Felix. The location is good; very close to Whole Foods and about six blocks from Michigan Ave. There are restaurants in close vicinity and a Divvy bike station is just a couple blocks away. The reception space itself is inviting although only one young man working at the reception desk ever greeted us... More
