I stayed at Hotel Felix for four nights in May at a priceline rate of $150/night. On the first night, after a long night on the town, I was horrified when I pulled back the covers and discovered several (and I'm talking 10-12) strands of someone else's hair stuck to the sheets. I've stayed in tons of hotels around the... More

Tiny room. Loud air conditioner. Tiny closet with a curtain door. Tiny ironing board. Zero space. Gap in door so we could see light in hallway. Guy across the hall we could hear breathing. This is not four stars unless you are a little person...even then it would be 3. Like the H2O products at least. Skip it. There are... More

Stayed here w/my husband to entertain clients in the city. Our room was very spacious & big, overlooking Huron Street. Based on the many reviews I've read, I think there are many different sized King bed rooms here. Ours had plenty of room and was not cramped up at all. We had a hair dryer, as well. This is something... More

My company booked 5 of us here through Priceline - granted I don't know what they paid per room - but the rooms are tiny, uninspired in design (which can make up for small), there was no tub, just a shower. In addition, the supposedly work-friendly desk was so tiny that it barely held a computer and the closet -... More

I travel to Chicago once a year on business and always stay at a downtown hotel. I like the location of the Felix: a few blocks from the hustle and bustle of Michigan Ave. in a pleasant neighbourhood with lots of people walking their dogs. I found the front-desk staff to lack the friendliness that you typically find in a... More

Small boutique hotel . from the moment you arrive, you almost feel at home yes the rooms are small but very nice. I wish they had a door on the closets instead of a curtain which makes it look cheap. but I did ignore this The internet is welcome addition

Very small rooms, with not too many amenities. No coffee maker, nor any hair dryer and plastic cups for drinking water! Very clean rooms and within walking distance from nice restaurants and Walgreens but no views to the rooms. Staff is very friendly, and free internet access.

We stayed at Hotel Felix for a mini family reunion. 8 of us were in Chicago to see one of my sons perform in a musical. The staff at the front door were especially helpful with parking and taxis and recommendations. They were friendly and approachable. The decor is beautiful and the rooms, though small, were well appointed and served... More

Our room was small with a queen bed and tiny pillows that looked liked square cushions. The closet was a little space cut out of the wall with a curtain and almost no space to hang a suit and party dress. What bothered us most was lack of storage space. A part from that, the hotel is well located with... More

I booked three nights here via Hotwire for business and yes, the rooms are a bit small, but very comfortable and up to date. I did laugh when I banged my shin on corner of bed, as that seems to be a common complaint, but I did not mind the room at all. Windows open, bed comfortable, bathroom has standup... More
