“Great Value, Well done”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

This hotel is unbeatable in its location, price and service. Room seemed on the small side but not unlike NYC hotels who charge twice as much. Clean, modern and neutral interiors, good style and great function. The hotel is in a quiet area but just steps away from Whole Foods, a few blocks from Michigan Ave shopping district and great restaurants and close to Merchandise Mart. Parking within a few blocks can be had for $25 per day. Will definitely return in the future!

The rooms are very small but very nice with comfy linens. The front desk staff is friendly and was quick to remedy the fact that we were checked into a room that had not yet been cleaned. The hallway on our floor was extremely dirty and needs a good vacuuming round the edges. A room service tray sat outside an adjacent room all weekend and the staff just kept walking around it. This is uncharacteristic of the rest of the hotel which is nicely decorated and well cared for. Beware that the street is noisy well into the morning hours. If you are an early to bed person, this might not be the hotel for you. Noise is the price you pay for being in the middle of all the action!

Hi Lori S - Thank you for posting your review following your stay with us. 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. We are happy that the staff was able to move you to a different room, and we will look into this situation regarding the hallway and room service tray. We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again soon.

Hotel Felix is in the heart of the Chicago action, minutes away from the Miracle Mile, great restaurants and the lake front. Found an amazing deal on line which made this affordable. Room was very small but clean and nice. Hotel staff courteous and friendly.

The Felix has without question the most Courteous and helpful Staff in Chicago. We will never stay anywhere else when up there. Our room was beautiful and clean. Within easy walking distance of the bus stop, the L and superior cab service. Also within also walking distance to some of the restaurants and night life in town. Also the best breakfast anywhere you The Yolk is a must have in Chicago. I have stayed in hotels all over world and can recommend none Higher.

Room Tip: No swimming pool if that's a need

Great location!! The hotel is very fun and quirky. The only problem is that the rooms are the smallest rooms I've ever been in. Smaller than average European hotel rooms! Would definitely recommend for the price, though. You can walk everywhere...the loop, mag mile, lots of great restaurants...not bad at all!!

Some say the room is small but we found it perfect. Service and cleanliness was great. My only critique is desk service does not know bus schedule. We came in sat morning and told to take a bus that does not run weekends. As this was our first time in the city it created some confusion. We ended up taking a cab. Next day we were told to take the #3 bus which did not exist. We loved this hotel but directions could have been more helpful.
