Reviewed 28 March 2012

We recently stayed at the Hotel Felix with my wife and two small children for a 4 day trip to Chicago. We ended up with the hotel after Pricline accepted a bid for $85.00 dollars a night during the week in March. The hotel is located downtown near, Michigan Ave, and the shopping district. Its only about a 5 block walk to shopping and eating on Michigan Ave. The area around the hotel is loaded with places to eat for families and business professionals. The Hotel has within a 2 block area, Whole Foods, Walgreens, 7 Eleven, Rain Forrest Cafe, Gitos East (Pizza), McDonalds (coolest McDonalds I've ever been in 2-stories with escalators), Chop House, and Hard Rock Cafe, and Hotdog and pasta chains. All of these places are within a 5-8 minute walk. Its just a Great area. The Hotel was very nice, new and clean. The staff was very friendly and getting a cab easy. We never heard another person in the hotel trhough the walls and the rooms and hotel were very clean. The only two drawback were the rooms are small (no fridge) and their is a church mission near by for homeless to eat for free. I would stay in this hotel again and felt very safe in the area. Great Hotel.

Pros- very clean
nicely decorated (contemporary)
friendly staff
comfortable bed

Cons- very small rooms (smallest I've ever had in a hotel. Kept banging knee on bed corner)
no pool or hot tub
about a 6 block walk from Mich Ave (not extremely far, but far enough)
no coffee maker or fridge in room (however, front desk did offer free coffee)
very shallow sinks in bathroom which made it difficult to use
shower only in room (no tub)

Our overall experience of this hotel was very average. We were surprised it was a 4 star rating. We will most likely not stay at Hotel Felix ever again due to the distance from Mich Ave, the extremely small rooms, and the lack of pool/hot tub.

Had stayed here before, both times on priceline/hotwire hidden deals, and both times have been left with the same impression: it's a nice hotel but wow, are the rooms small. I actually banged my leg on the bed trying to walk around it because there was so little space between it and the wall. Other than that, everything was fine: nicely decorated, comfortable bed, pretty good restaurant, great service. A little annoyed that we had to pay $3 for wine glasses and a corkscrew from room service, but at least they came quickly. If you don't mind extra small, "boutique" style room (ie plan on going out more than staying in and working), the amenities are nice and the location, while not on Michigan Ave itself, is great.

Room Tip: King rooms are claustrophobic, get two doubles for a little more space.

Look, I have stayed in my fair share of hotels, and Hotel Felix is pretty nice. Bid appropriately on Priceline and if you end up there, then you should be happy enough.
