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

Looked up and holes were patched not one but several. Paint as slopped over and unacceptable. Would I stay again, no. A big was on the ceiling had to swipe it off.

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

Well checked in yesterday. As I said before I got the rooms from price line, upon checking in Mr. Austin provided us with one double bed in a room for three people - so I reminded him that I called and talked to the reservation for two double beds in the room and he replied it is an upgrade for...

Hi Royarind - Thank you for staying with us and for your review. When you book through a third-party booking service, you are confirmed under the room type you selected and booked. We are able to upgrade from that when we have availability, such as the extra charge per night. We also are happy to hear from our team that... More

I have a reservation for two rooms starting from the 19th (Friday). I looked into the other reviews and got paranoid about this hotel. I reserved rooms from Priceline.com. I called to request one room with two queen beds since there will be three people in that room and a king bed in another room for two people. I was... More

The Felix was clean and only a bit off the main attractions on Michigan. There was coffee in the am, but not in the pm (or tea) in the lobby. That would have been a plus for a boutique hotel adjacent to only an expensive restaurant. Whole Foods and Starbucks and McDonalds were a short walk away. The staff were... More

Came to town for a Blackhawks game, this was the best deal of the lot. Glad we used parking app to find alternative parking 3 blocks away, as this greatly reduced the parking prices (which I hate that hotels have reduced clients to have to source out parking due to costs). The neighbourhood was great, away from touristy land, but... More

I am so disappointed. I booked a room thru Priceline for 2 people. Every other time I have booked a room thru an independent source, I've always been given a room with 2 double beds. NOT here. The man that was at the desk rudely said "We are sold out of rooms. Booked full." I said, how about a roll-away... More

I booked here after reading that the service was outstanding and the front desk amazing. I didn't find either sentiment true. Our room was clean and comfortable. The location was good. I made no complaints. I think it is important to identify this kind of property as such. Clean. Comfortable. Good location. Just nothing special.
