“Garfield has returned”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2011

Nine months after our initial visit to Hotel Felix we returned for a last minute weekend in Chicago. On our first visit we loved the location and amenities of the hotel but criticized the size of the rooms. During these 9 months our memories of Hotel Felix were fond. While planning our last minute trip we decided to take George up on his offer to make our next stay at Hotel Felix comfortable and they did not disappoint. The wonderful smell of the lobby remained as soon as we entered the door. As we made our way to our room we wondered what it would look like compared to our previous stay and we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room for our second stay. The bigger room was nice, but everything about the stay and hotel was wonderful and we would recommend staying at the Felix and likely will return many times in the future.

Stayed here from September 6 thru September 9 2011. The room was not small I stayed in room 704 great view, quiet, very clean, great service. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The elate restaurant next door had great food and good prices. If you're going to Chicago and need to stay near downtown this is the place. Four blocks from Michigan ave very nice and trendy area where hotel is located. Whole food store a block away for snacks or food items. The hotel is new clean and great value. I can't wait to go back.

Thank you for your recent review and for staying with us while you were in the Windy City. We're thrilled to hear you appreciated our convenient location in the heart of downtown Chicago, steps away from the city's finest shopping. We're also glad you enjoyed Elate, the restaurant that's adjacent to us. Thank you again.

I stayed at Hotel Felix for 3 nights with my boyfriend and I was so positively impressed.
Hotel Felix is surely an excellent place to stay, with hight standard of customer service.
Beautiful rooms, very clean, cosy and confortable.
Elegant common spaces.
We recommend the nearby restaurant Elate, kind of expensive but gorgeous food.
Rates are not cheap but you could find good offers on the hotel web sites.

Got this hotel through Priceline and stayed 3 nights. We were given given a room with no view at all. No other room available..., at check-in at 4.30? Next to our window was a building with cloths around it. From Europe, first time Chicago, you may expect a better introduction, I guess... After a long flight and with having a jet-lag this was quite a bummer. Together with the fact that the room was so small you had quite a "locked up" feeling...
At the whole I expect more of a 4-star hotel.
I wouldn't stay here again.

Yes the rooms were a bit small but you can't beat the location. Walking distance to Mag Mile without the heavy price tag. The hotel staff were ALL wonderful and cordial. The rooms were super clean and all updated. Sleek and modern.

Hotel Felix has a European flair & is right smack in the middle of every point of interest. There is free wi-fi internet connection. We didn't hit the bar but the lounge are, albeit small, is darling & appealing. Keep your music down 'cause the walls are relatively thin (or our music was just too bloody loud) & you will get a "keep it down" call from the front desk. You can easily get to the hotel from ORD via shuttle or train. If you fancy visiting an original prohition era speak easy, exit the hotel, take a left walk down about 10 minutes & voila! The Green Door Tavern @ Huron Street. We would stay here again. Clean, very clean & comfortable mattress.

Room Tip: Before arriving confirm that your room is at least bigger than an average size No American bedroom...

Staff is great, restaurant was great but the rooms are okay. Rooms were small. There is a lot of competition in Chicago and I had not stayed here before so I gave it a shot. That said, I won't be back, not because they were a bad hotel, I simply feel there is rooms out there that offer more than the Hotel Felix
