One way we try to create happiness while you stay with us is by utilizing natural elements. As you walk into the hotel you are welcomed with the all-natural elements of earth, wind and fire. The design was created by Gettys who believe design should be, “visually captivating and sustainable.”
We agree. One of the ways they helped us incorporate natural elements is our wall of fire wood. Masked by the beauty of the city, it can be difficult to fully captivate the splendor of nature. Our wall of firewood help bring the natural component indoors so you can stay Happy. Naturally.
Displayed right next to our comforting fireplace, this design piece helps warm your heart as you warm your toes. You can see this lovely statement of sustainability any time in our lobby. While you are here make sure to say hi to Scrappy and Loren.
Join our great team here at Hotel Felix and help make our guests “Happy. Naturally,” just like our hotel’s tag line.
