Stayed here for one Friday night in December. I received this hotel via Priceline as a 4 star hotel. At best this is a 3 star hotel in reality. The rooms are incredibly small. Also a fairly long walk to Michigan Ave. Service was just ok, beds were nice. My biggest complaint is with Priceline and not this hotel. I...

Thank you for your review following your visit. While our rooms are cozy in nature, we're proud of our eco-friendly efforts and amenities. Regarding our proximity to the Mag Mile, we're a 6-8 minute walk from Michigan Avenue. Thank you again and have a nice day!

This was the smallest hotel room I have ever been in. Much smaller than N.Y. rooms. I too got stuck with this hotel through Priceline. I called right away and asked for double beds and was told it would be an extra $80.00 (2 nights) When I got there, they said they could give me a room with a king...

Had a very good time in Chicago this December and this was because of the great location of this hotel. Only a couple of blocks from the train station and short walking distance to several bus stops. Free internet. Very nice (but also small) reception desk area. I thought the rooms were very small though. There's no counter in the...

I used Priceline bid process and was afraid of the outcome due to a previous terrible hotel result. I was pleasantly surprised by the selection especially for the bargain price I got. I checked in Christmas evening about 8 p.m. The front desk clerk was not as polite as some hotels but he was not rude either. I had not...

Our stay was for one night only on December 15th. We obtained the room through Priceline.com for $100.00 as a 4 star. We were initially disappointed as we read that it is rare to be able to upgrade to a two bedroom and it was further west from Michigan Ave than I really wanted. I called as soon as I...

My main complaint is the front desk and management who are dishonest and rude. We booked on priceline at a fixed rate for three persons but when you arrive you are hit with an upgrade charge. This was not mentioned when we called the hotel the next day to request a room with two double beds. The front desk person...

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...

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?
