Like many other reviewers here, I got an excellent rate through bidding on Priceline. And like many of the previous reviewers I read the reviews and became a little apprehensive. If you have bid on this hotel, you can exhale. It's a very nice place. The details: I stay in alot of hotels and have stayed in really really small...

We pricelined this hotel as a "name your price". I immediatley looked at the reviews. I was so dissapointed and scared after reading so many negative reviews. I never write reviews, but I had to write one because our experience with this hotel was just outstanding. As soon as we arrived and pulled up to the hotel, the bellman helped...

Thanks for your outstanding review, Nancy. We are happy to hear you loved our "squeaky clean" rooms and unbeatable location right in the heart of Chicago. We hope you'll visit the Windy City again soon and stay with us. Thanks again Nancy and have a great day.

This room is small! I have traveled for decades around the world and this is the tiniest room I have ever had. When I asked for a larger room, willing to pay an upgrade, I was told that this is the size room the hotel (ever) has in stock. Apparently, this hotel was refurbished to serve Lilliputians!

We stayed a the Hotel Felix for a weekend recently and we're pleasantly surprised. I got a GREAT deal through Priceline.com. However, I was apprehensive at first after reading some of the reviews here on tripadvisor, particularly those about the rooms being very small and the staff being unpleasant. After doing my homework, I called in a request for an...

I had a wedding in Chicago, and decided to make a weekend of it and stayed 3 nights. I booked on hotwire as I didn't want to spend too much time reviewing various hotels and checking pricing for this trip. When I checked this place out on line, i was quite excited, as it looked very modern, which is what...

Thank you for your review Fraser J. While our rooms are cozy in nature, we're proud of our eco-friendly efforts and amenities. In keeping with these efforts we do not supply coffee machines in each room, instead we offer complimentary fair trade coffee and tea in the lobby each morning. Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon!

First off, let me say that I work in a above average three star hotel that offers many of the same amenities that Hotel Felix does. The difference I found was the quality of the amenities offered, and at the Felix, they're far better than ours. One thing that I really liked, that I will be suggesting to my manager,...

Don't let the old brick outside fool you, the interior is all modern, sleek, clean, and perfect for a business trip or weekend get-away. Nice lounge area with drinks that are NOT overpriced (unlike so many city hotels.) I was there on a cold, wet weekend, and the fire in the lobby bar was almost too hot. But I won't...

To start, front desk staff was not friendly, rooms very small, parking is expen$ive. the kicker was, they charge six dollars for each piece of mail they except for you. Location of hotel is good, but will not return for all the reasons I mentioned.

Hi nmber23, thank you for your review. We do not charge a fee to accept envelopes and/or a small number of boxes. Most hotels do charge for this but we do it as a service for our guests. If the guest has a large quantity of boxes shipped to the hotel we ask for a handling fee. This is standard...

As nearly everyone here has mentioned, everything about this hotel was small. I will also mention, no bathtub, no bathroom fan, and no closet. Our room looked directly into a construction site for a parking garage. At 7AM there were men working 10 feet from my window. I would not book this hotel again- even for a steal. Pay $50...

Thank you for your review IndianapolisMK. The construction next door is slated to be completed this year. Dealing with construction is part of being in a bigger city like Chicago so unfortunately there is not very much we can do there. Thanks again.
