“Small rooms but great location”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

This hotel is in a great location that makes it easy to walk to great shopping and restaurants. Staff was friendly, our room was ready when we got there a little early, and it is clean and modern. We were only looking for a place to sleep so the small room size didn't really bother us. However if we had been staying more than one night it would probably have been an issue. Just to give you an idea of the size of the Queen room, the width is the bed plus two small nightstands on either side. The bathroom is also pretty tight. There is no room on the sink to keep your toiletries, and the door needs to be shut for you to get into the shower. Also, our AC was pretty loud while we were trying to sleep.

My boss's assistant forgot to made a reservation for me. However, front desk employee was more than friendly and able to get me a room and company corporate rate, which wasn't available due to two conferences in town and limited availability.

Stayed 3 nights in this hotel. Check in was smooth and trouble free. I was advised of the hotel amenities and supplied a map of the surrounding area. The room I was given had a window that didn't seal correctly so noise of a neighbouring businesses air conditioning unit caused an irritating noise. I was promptly moved to another room. This is a newly renovated hotel which had all the amenities that I required, comfortable bed, shower. It is close to downtown. I would certainly stay here again.

I booked at the Hotel Felix at a rate of $308 per night for a room with a queen bed. In addition to the bed, there was a small desk with a chair and a nightstand. There were 2 drawers under the bed and a small alcove closet with 6 hangers. No room for more. In fact, there was hardly room for me. It was impossible to organize my stuff for a 4 night stay because there was so little storage and such limited counters. The bathroom, while clean, had a few narrow shelves and a shower with a curtain. Signs of wear were apparent throughout the room. I suspect the hotel is a redo of an SRO. The staff was consistently pleasant and responsive. But their good cheer didn't alleviate my discomfort in living in such a small pace at a price that wasn't small at all. Never again.

Room Tip: I have no idea. Don't book one with a larger bed. Maybe it would have had more space with a tw...

Hi Julie M - Thank you very much for posting 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. We are happy to hear that you had a positive customer service experience. Thank you again, and we hope you have a great day.

My husband and I visited Chicago for the first time. I wasn't sure what to expect at the Felix. I read that some people were disappointed with the room size. I do know when visiting a large city, like NYC too, that the rooms are typically smaller. The staff from the time of arrival until our departure, were very friendly and very accommodating. I would definitely recommend and stay again.

I can't recommend the hotel felix. It was sold as a luxury 4 star hotel but it is actually 3 star. The rooms are old, and a bit grotty. It is certainly not what I would expect from a boutique hotel. I would not stay there again.
