Very Clean and Comfortable room. Room was small but functional. The location was right in the middle of the Chicago nightlife. You will be able to walk to numerous restaurants and bars. I would stay again.

Not really but the room are the same size as a Microtel Room (Micro Small). Just enough room for the bed (no other furniture in room except a desk chair at a table that cannot fit computer and a pad of paper. You have to take everything off the table to have enough room for your computer and then deal with the frustration of a WI-FI that is wholly inadequate if you rely on getting any business done. Bring your own Wi-Fi.

Also shin pads. I must have knocked my legs 6 times last night trying to get around the square corners of the platform that the mattress sits on. Your drawers are in the bottom of the platform.

"Closet" is an indentation in the wall with a curtain over it.

One on the three elevators was down last night and when I got in another it stopped between floors with a jerk. Rang the Alarm Three time it finally started up.

The LEED certification doesn't rank as a differentiator as there are so many other ones out there now, Just look at the Marriott list.

Positives - Bathroom is very good and the free morning coffee is tasty.

I have two more nights and I shant be going back.

Even for Road-Warriors Like myself this doesn't warrant a stay

Room Tip: If you want a good room...find another Hotel...Godfrey Hotel is right next door

Hi MinnJimm - Thank you for posting your review. While our rooms are cozy in nature, as Chicago's first Silver LEED certified hotel we're proud of our eco-friendly efforts. We find that most guests appreciate the location central to shopping, dining, attractions and more. We hope that you were able to speak to the front desk regarding the Wi-fi and the elevator issues, and we will look into the situation. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the complimentary free-trade coffee in our lobby and that the bathroom design suited you. Thank you again for choosing Hotel Felix Chicago. Safe travels.

It was very modern and Renovated hotel with awesome decor and new amenities. It was a short stay... No Lobby Bar etc that I saw. Pretty cool would probably give it a second chance. No complaints just ok.

Room Tip: Room was very small and cramped but bathroom was nice

Stayed at this hotel twice in Chicago. The first stay I purchased on the hotel website day of for a pretty good deal. Room was clean and comfortable but very noisy. I was sort of close to the elevators so I assume that's what the noise came from. I'm a pretty deep sleeper though so I slept through it but could easily bother a lot of people.

The second time I stayed, the room was smaller but I got a really cheap deal on Priceline (one of their express deals where I knew the price and location but not the hotel name in order to get a really cheap rate). The room was farther away from the elevator and much quieter although there were some weird noises from the toilet every once in awhile and the AC unit was a bit loud whenever it kicked on.

Overall, comfortable but would not pay their usual $120/night.

Room Tip: Ask for something away from the elevator

Hotel is in a great location! We were able to walk to numerous restaurants and bars. Hotel was right by a walgreens, which was very convenient. There is a parking lot about a block away that only costs $32, vs the $55 that the hotel charges. Yes, the room was small, but if you are staying for a night and want to explore the city, this hotel is perfect!

This hotel has a modern, clean decor. Service was very good at check in. Bar is very small, not a place to hang out. The rooms are clean, modern and comfortable but extremely small which was fine for two nights but not anything longer. The location was just fine and the price was very reasonable. Basically for a budget trip this hotel is just fine if you are looking to save some $$. You are not paying for a 5 star so don't expect a 5 star.

Where do I start. STAY AWAY. Booked through express travel on priceline. Price was okay until they told us its an additional $120/ per night to request double beds instead of a single. Bait and switched us when most hotels offer it if it is available. Free wifi-doesn't work. Toilet was running randomly all night. Room is small. Credit card was charged and then we were called on the room phone multiple times to come down and present with a card again because of their errors when charging. When we asked to speak with a manager to voice our frustrations, front desk clerk seemed very irritated and was very rude. Never again.

Hi Odeh J - Thank you for posting your review. While our rooms are cozy in nature, as Chicago's first Silver LEED certified hotel we're proud of our eco-friendly efforts. When booking through a third party booking engine, the room preference you are booking is clear at that time. While we do our best to offer other rooms or upgrade, it isn’t always possible based on availability and our capacity. We hope our front desk was able to assist with the Wi-fi issue you experienced, and that the problem charging your credit card was resolved. Thank you again for taking the time to post your review. Safe travels.
