From reading other reviews of the small rooms at Hotel Felix, I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the room (average for a city hotel) and very pleased with the quality. The bed and bedding, bathroom fixtures and towels were all very good. They have a decent hotel bar with comfy furniture to sit and enjoy your drink, while...

Thank you for your review following your stay with us! We agree that our rooms are comparable in size to other city hotels in the metropolitan Chicago area.

Reviewed 17 December 2012

Billed as a four-star property, the Hotel Felix fails to meet that standard in multiple ways. The rooms are too small for even a fridge, no room for a vanity in the bathroom, and you almost have to suck your gut in to get around the end of the bed. Claustrophobic guests may want to avoid. The attached restaurant is...

Bayside, Wisconsin
Reviewed 17 December 2012

We loved the decor and location. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was cute but way too little. The result was no drawers or counter space. If I had be alone, it would have been fine, but the queen size room just did not leave enough space for two. Four stars?

No way can a room measuring 8.5x11ft get a 4 star rating. Room size only allowed a Queen size bed. Ridiculously small. No space to store cases or hang clothes. Window had a 3/4" gap between top & bottom. Outside temp. below freezing! I did manage to repair the issue. Toilet seat soiled - not cleaned properly -Ugh. Last straw...

Thank you for your review. We'll look into the issue you raised about the toilet and conduct remedial training as necessary. As for the hot water, we have a full maintenance staff on site and we do our best to fix what is in our control. For an issue having to do with the city's supply of water, we do...

Saint Louis, Missouri
Reviewed 13 December 2012

This was suggested by a girl working at the company I was in town to attend a seminar with. The price was great for downtown, even cheaper staying both Friday and Saturday night. The valet parking @ $44 a day was a bit steep so I chose the lot just behind the hotel - $45 for the week-end. Both the...

My husband and I stayed two nights at Hotel Felix after booking for a great rate on Priceline. I read reviews leading up to our stay and wasn't quite sure what to expect based on various experiences and notes about the size of the room. We were pleasantly surprised! I contacted hotel management ahead of our stay indicating that were...

I recently stayed here for a couple of nights. I enjoyed my visit despite the small rooms. It may have been cramped if there was another person though. My room had a comfortable bed and a nice large tv screen. The decor and lighting were modern and the bathroom was nice with a walk in shower. Streaming movies worked well...

Other that the fact that the room was very tiny, maybe 12 x 10, everything else about the stay was fine. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was clean, updated and well lit. Room had been updated. Front desk friendly. Rate of $80 on PL. There was also a nice bar off the main lobby with affordable wine.

Chicago, IL

Rooms are incredibly tiny at this property. I would estimate the room size (including the bathroom) at under 150 square feet. The rooms are so small that there is not a real closet - more like a small hole in the wall. The desk - 12 inches deep - is located directly under the tv. As a result, if you...

Since you are reading reviews, you will go in with the knowledge that this is a boutique property with small rooms. Our recent stay was just for one night, so we could wander around and enjoy the holiday events in Chicago. The location is great, close to Michigan Ave, Rush Street, nice walk into the Loop. Yes, the rooms are...
