If I paid the going rate, which was $125 a night, when we stayed at the Felix on December 26th, I would have be disappointed. Instead, we used Priceline's "Name your own Price" feature and got the room for $56 a night, which made the tight confines easier to swallow.
We were in room 1006, a King bedded room.

ROOMS THE SIZE OF A STAMP. I warned my husband to be careful when walking around the bed, which was a tight squeeze, because it was easy to bang your shin. He banged his shin four times, and it isn't because he is a slow learner. It is because you just don't EXPECT a two inch clearance when you move around in a room.
NOISY HEATING UNIT. We ended up turning it off because of the sound of vibrating metal when the unit ran. The room stayed nicely warm with the unit off.
IF SOMEONE IS AT THE DESK, the other person has to climb over them in order to get past them.
The walk to the el station (Red line) was about five blocks, which is fine in nice weather and LONG when it is freezing and blowing. We prefer to stay closer to Michigan Ave.
If we were paying full fare, this would NOT be our choice. For the same price, you can get a bigger room in a better location.
When we are waiting to see if our 'bid' will be accepted via Priceline's "Name Your Own Price" feature, we usually chant "Not the Felix! Not the Felix! Please, not the Felix!" This time - it was.
