“Great Location and great hotel”
Reviewed February 7, 2010

We stayed at the Felix for a weekend in Chicago for fun. The hotel is located about five blocks from Michigan Ave. It is a quick walk to shopping an dining options. The rooms are small but, I have stayed in other hotels in Chicago that are the same size. If you are coming to Chicago, are you going to be in your room all day? They also allow you to park for free if you drive a hybrid. We have a Prius so that saved $42 a night for valet parking. The rooms are comfortable but, the walls are a little thin. Again, nothing I have not experienced at other hotels. Overall, a great stay at a great little hotel. If you want to stay in Chicago and want to be within walking distance of a LOT of stuff, keep the Felix in mind.

As a frequent visitor of Chicago, I have always found my accommodations pleasant. I am WELL aware of most space issues of downtown hotels, so small rooms don't scare me off. I always get my rooms off Priceline for a steal and have never been disappointed. Hotel Felix was charming. Very modern and comfortable. Beds were great. Bathroom was roomy and clean. Even the little bar area downstairs was very quaint (tip: order a drink and get something off their $3 bar bites menu and sit by the fire).

The location was wonderful, just a few blocks from Michigan Ave. The service was great. Don't let the reviews of the small rooms deter you from this little gem. They made sure to make use of all space and think of every detail.

We booked this hotel on Hotwire so we didn't know exactly where we were going to stay until we booked. It is wonderful and exceptionally clean. Service was very good. Enjoyed the lobby meeting other people. The beds are wonderful as well as the pillows

Chic hotel in a great location just a few blocks from the Mag Mile. Our room was small and we could hear the people in the room next door occasionally, but I would expect this of any city hotel and it really didn't bother us. The room and bathroom very were clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. I got a great deal there through travelzoo which included breakfast at the hotel restaurant. I would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is great for a quick trip to Chicago; about 3 blocks from Michigan Avenue, but still a great location. Room was small but very clean, the BED…my goodness! It was so very comfortable! My Spa treatment (Reflexology, after shopping until I dropped) with Kim was one of the best I’ve had.

Room was average sized for a business traveler, but big enough for one night and two guests. It was very sumptuous, from the bed to the lighting to the decor. Very luxurious linens on bed. Liked having the Ipod dock. Hotel staff was very helpful, friendly. Location was close to everything you could need for a great night in Chicago. Parking across the street was $23, which was very reasonable.
Didn't eat in restaurant but it appeared very relaxing and inviting. Great atmosphere.
Got a great rate on hotel website and that made it even better. One issue noticed was that once floor in shower got wet, it was very slippery and there was no mat.

This wonderfully remodeled and renovated hotel is only 4 blocks from Michigan Ave. and is in a perfect location. The hotel staff especially Charles, Tim and Julian are fantastic people that care and assist you with all your questions and needs. The hotel is very clean and the housekeeping is outstanding. I was impressed by the linens (USA made), the bath products, and the furnishings. This place is Leeds certified and tries to avoid waste and needless energy consumption with various equipment and ideas. It used to be the old Wacker Hotel and was built in 1926. It went through it's complete remake just last year with new HVAC, electrical, plumbing, elevators, fire systems and interior. The Elate restaurant and bar and the small bar in the lobby are perfect and the meals and happy hour specials are great. The food is chef prepared and the bartendresses are pretty, smart, and professional. Don't be afraid of the ratings complaining of room size, we had no problem with a bit smaller room and it was very cozy. At one time we had 8 of our friends in the room for a few beers and snacks and it was crowded and fun. You will love the fact that Trader Joe's, Whole Earth Foods, Walgreens and other helpful retail is just around the corners. We ate at the Mi Luna cafe in the old Howard Johnson's motor lodge just one block away for great breakfasts and fast lunch. This little cafe is not a looker but it is a classic and the food is classic Chicago.
At The Hotel Felix, the high speed wifi, hi def flat screen tv, free local phone calls, and bottled water are free. There's even a great free coffee bar set up each morning in the lobby. It also has easy access to I90-94 for scooting around the Windy City. I could not find a thing wrong with this place. It's my new "go to" hotel in Chicago from now on...don't change a thing please. This is Chicago downtown at it's best. I love the fact that the entire hotel was "recycled" and saved in such a cool way. Also there is ample surface and garage parking next to the hotel and if you drive a hybird vehicle your valet parking is free for your entire stay.
