“Weekend stay”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

We enjoyed our visit, enjoyed the Troquet Restaurant.
Parking was on the expensive side, but that is anywhere in Chicago.
Close to everything with a short taxi ride.
The Lobby Bar was open late, which was nice to be able to stop there for a night cap.
Will stay there again, hopefully in the summertime we will be able to walk around and
see the neighborhood more.

Hello Jeri - We're happy to hear you had a great stay while you were in town. We're also happy you found our location convenient as we're located right in the heart of downtown Chicago. Just as you said - we're a short cab ride away from everything and also walking distance to Chicago's attractions.

We hope to see you again soon. Thanks Jeri.

After our flight was cancelled and realizing we had to spend another night in Chicago my husband and I knew we would not be able to stay at our original 4 star hotel-the bed was awful, no sleep and a horrible central heating system. We wanted to stay close to our original area of Michigan ave. We went to Hotel Felix and walking into the lobby we knew we had made the right decision. The front desk staff were so accommodating - we were tired and cranky and their hospitality stopped our bad day in its tracks. The room was perfect and the bed was the most comfortable I have found in all my years of travel. This is the only hotel I will stay at in Chicago from now on!

We were stranded in Chicago due to connecting flight cancellation. We landed in Chicago early morning and were very pleased to be able to check into our room upon arrival (11AM). A big plus for this hotel is its proximity to the magnificent mile (five blocks away). Troquet restaurant adjoining the hotel is also a good place for dinner and breakfast (buckwheat crepes were great!). The wifi worked perfectly. Toiletries are from l'Occitane which I really enjoyed. Downside for any extended stay would be the size of the room. Our King size bed was very comfortable but occupied 3/4 of the room. It was fine for a day or two but for a longer stay you might want to pick a different hotel. Also, the walls are thin and if you have noisy floormates, it can be annoying. We had to phone the front desk to ask they come and ask one of our neighbours to lower the volume late in the night. More boisterous guests arrived after 4pm and kept us awake for a while again.

This hotel is in a good spot downtown and very modern. The staff here is great. Nicole at the front desk was extremely friendly, helpful and answered all of my questions. The price was also outstanding. I will certainly stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Felix just one night but is a was an overall great experience. It was located just about a 10 minute walk from Michigan avenue.They offered valet parking at a reasonable rate which was handy in the middle of January! The front desk folk were friendly and quick. We arrived in the city about 2 hours before check in but it was not a problem to check in early. The room was small but very modern and clean. Would definitely stay there again on my next trip to Chicago!

I spent a short time at this hotel, just one night with a friend. The rooms are super small, yet clean, modern and comfy bed. The lobby is small, but chic. We enjoyed our late brunch at the restaurant next door, which is off the entry area. Location is great, within walking distance to restaurant, bars, shops. For $100 on priceline, this hotel was well with the price.

Our trip to Chicago was wonderful, we had a fantastic time seeing the sights. Took in a Bears game, two Blackhawks games, and visited House of Blues amongst other attractions.

Hotel Felix was a decent home base. As many of the other reviews say, the room is extremely small. That's really the only negative. The location was great, the bed was comfortable, room a comfortable temperature. Bathroom is like a closet. We stayed 6 nights and may have benefited from a bigger room due to the duration of our stay.

Hello Kimbo1523 - We appreciate your review. 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. Thank you for your time and we hope we’ll see you again soon!
