Hotel Felix Chicago

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was very nice, clean and well suited for business travel. The only issue I had was I was right near the ice machine and found it loud throughout the evening as other got ice.

Nice hotel offering good value for the money. Room very comfortable, only issue was sink slow to drain. Good location and easy to walk to restaurants and shops. There is construction near the hotel but it did not disturb me.

I haven’t stayed in many boutique hotels but this is a wonderful place to stay!

Awesome quaint and cool hotel in a great area of Chicago. Highly recommended.

I was excited to stay in this hotel based on the pictures I saw online. The staff was more than welcoming very nice and attentive that's not my problem. My problem was the room it was dirty the bathrobes were disgusting, the table we had was broken. There was no refrigerator and the room was very small, I wouldn't recommend

Rude staff, small rooms. Better hotels in the city

The lobby is tiny and the halls made me feel a little claustrophobic. My room was right next to the elevator (so it was very loud). The room was tiny, and I have an enormous bruise on my knee from the wood bed frame that extended beyond the mattress. There were no outlets by the bed so I could charge my phone, so I had to charge it on the other side of the room. The TV kept inexplicably turning off and/or switching to a Chromecast input. Also, there was construction work going on outside, so there were guys with megaphones yelling things to each other in the evening and in the early morning. For a hipster or eco-whatever experience, I’m sure it’s fine, but there are much better options just a block or two away.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. Check in was easy and the person at the front desk was nice but when we went to leave the next day for work we realized that there was not a do not disturb sign in our room. We called the front desk and waited 30 minutes and no one brought the sign up. We went to the front desk and they said they didn't have a sign so my partner asked another individual who finally gave us the sign. The whole process took 45 minutes and made me late to work. I would have let the room service just clean the room but previous reviews talked about theft from the hotel cleaning staff. The next day we wanted fresh towels. We called a total of three times and towels finally arrived after 45 minutes. Once again, this made us late to our dinner reservations. Later in our stay we had the same situation happen again. Overall, the front desk and towel service were completely incompetent the entire time we were there and there was barely anyone ever in the lobby checking in to make them too busy to assist us. Noise was a huge issue while we stayed here. Even though we were on the top floor (12th floor,) we were awoken at 8am everyday by the construction of the new hotel being built across the street. Additionally, we were kept up all night on the weekend nights from people partying and running up and down the halls. At 5am on Monday morning, we were awoken to intense smoke smells in our room. The person in the hotel room adjoined to us was on a smoking binge.

Very good location and nice hotel !!! Hotel has very small lobby bur clean and. Hotel Staff need to be more friendly.. My room 303 was good, but bath door was not closing properly

solid boutique hotel in the northern end of river north. I did not try the restaurant, but the big shoulders coffee connected to the restaurant is solid.

The Hotel Felix staff were very friendly and welcoming, providing lots of good helpful advice. The rooms were great also!

Hotel was convient to many things. The room was comfortable but the housekeeping does not restock the toiletries.

The hotel is in a great location: quiet-ish street within a 5 minute walk of a busier area with restaurants, and only 3 blocks from Michigan Avenue. Plenty of cabs and close to transit as well, so easy to get around the city. The hotel is a very relaxed atmosphere, and was quiet when it came time to go to bed. Coffee shop in the lobby restaurant makes a great cup of coffee in the mornings.

It was a ok hotel staff was friendly. Just the room were really small and when you get to the hotel there really is no place to pull up and check in very limited space

Great place great location great price. Nothing more to add)....

Smaller rooms but nice and good location between Michigan Ave and the Chicago River

The hotel was nice. The decor was nice. The rooms were terribly small. There was nothing more than a bed in the room. If you only plan to sleep, then the room will be great.

Hotel offered friendly staff, good coffee, adjoining restaurant and lounge.

The service and staff was totally beyond belief. The staff was always avail to assist in which ever way they could. My stay was a last minute reservation. I had never stayed there or in that area. But, I must say I will definitely stay at The Felix in my future travels to Chicago. I will highly recommend it too !!!

Excellent staff, clean rooms. Would stay here again!
