Flashback Friday to Eco-Chick’s Visit to Our Hotel

Last year, we were excited to welcome Lindsey Brown to our hotel. Brown is a blogger for Eco-Chick, which is “the world’s first sustainable living site for women.”

Brown, who is the managing editor. focuses on sustainable fashion, health and travel. We think that our hotel was a perfect match to host her during her time in Chicago!

Here’s a quote from her piece:

“I found Hotel Felix to be equal parts luxurious and environmentally innovative. I appreciated the small details at Hotel Felix during my stay such as its use of gorgeous reclaimed materials throughout the hotel, smart lighting and energy conservation in my room, the abundance of natural sun exposure, and even some ethical art.”

Here are some photos from her visit:

Throwback Thursday to Gringa Journeys’ Stay With Us!

We love when international travels make the trip to Chicago: there’s so much to do and see and we always make it a priority to give our guests the best possible experiences during their visits. Travel blogger Leah Shoup from Gringa Journeys visited us over the summer and had some great things to say about her visit!

Click here to read her entire post on her stay with us.

“When browsing hotels, Hotel Felix caught my eye as the first eco-friendly hotel in the city with silver LEED certification. I always like to stay in comfort, but when my stay can have an eco-friendly impact as well, all the better. In fact, Hotel Felix prides itself on making its guests ‘happy naturally’.”

“If you’re looking to take your relaxation to another level during your stay, make sure to check out the on-site spa. Moreover, the Hotel Felix also offers other amenities, including the fitness center, business center, and the lobby lounge.”

Thanks for visiting, Leah! If you’d like to book your stay, click here.

Warm Up With These Date Ideas For Winter in Chicago

Just because winter is approaching us here in Chicago doesn’t mean the fun stops! There’s still a great amount of things to eat, drink, see and do. We’re excited to share some of our favorite date ideas from this article by Time Out Chicago. Bundle up and explore the city, then come back to our hotel to warm up!

  1. Ice Skating at Maggie Daley Park – Admission is free – all you have to pay for are your ice skates! Sip on a hot chocolate afterwards and laugh about all the times you both fell.

  2. Head to an Arcade – Chicago’s home to Emporium Arcade Bars – with multiple locations! One was recently opened in Fulton Market – just under 2 miles away from our hotel. Try a new beer and like a kid again!

  3. Eat Food – Chicago’s home to so many great food options – which brings a TON of delivery options, too! Our hotel is located in the River North neighborhood, home to great options like Lou Melnati’s (you have to try deep dish pizza while you’re in Chicago) – or Troquet River North – the French bistro adjacent to our lobby!

Enjoy Chicago this winter!

Celebrate the Holidays At Lincoln Park Zoo

Getting ready for the holiday season? We think the perfect way to do so is to visit the Lincoln Park Zoo Lights! The event returns to the zoo this weekend and the best part is that it’s free! We love visiting the zoo to see the beautiful light fixtures and other special exhibits that are thrown on by the zoo. The event runs through early January and you will definitely catch us making a visit!

Happy holidays!
