Friends of the Chicago River: 10th Annual Big Fish Ball

Hotel Felix is proud to announce that we will be featured as an auction prize during Friends of the Chicago River’s 10th Annual Big Fish Ball. The auction prize will include a 2-night stay at Hotel Felix for the winner. As a Silver LEED certified hotel the preservation and protection of our Earth is a top priority, the Big Fish Ball is an event we wouldn’t want to miss.

Held this year on Thursday, June 4, the Big Fish Ball will celebrate its 10th year raising money for Friends of the Chicago River. The premise of the event is to celebrate the Chicago River’s history, current renaissance, and vital role it plays in our ecological and economic growth around the Chicago region. Held under tents along the Merchandise Mart’s Riverside Drive between the Wells Street and Franklin Street bridges, the evening will feature unique river-centric spectacles both on and off the river. Fundraising from the evening is put towards creating a greener, more accessible, and better cared for Chicago River. Ticket prices for the event are $325 per person. To purchase your ticket, please click here. For more information on Friends of the Chicago River or the 10th Annual Big Fish Ball visit ChicagoRiver.org.

Staying Green in 2015

At Hotel Felix our New Year’s resolution is to maintain our green eco friendly habits. As Chicago’s first Silver LEED certified hotel we are always looking for new opportunities to be green. And ways to inspire our guests to take a little bit of green knowledge home with them after their stay. So if you’re looking to stay green in 2015, here are a few tips from us at Hotel Felix:

1. Use a reusable water bottle instead of plastic.
2. Invest in reusable grocery bags instead of paper or plastic.
3. Turn off the lights when you leave a room.
4. Switch out light bulbs to energy efficient options.
5. Unplug your phone and computer charger when they’re not in use.
6. Pack your lunch in a reusable bag and containers.
7. Switch from paper to cloth towels to clean up around your house.
8. Use public transportation.
9. Donate any unwanted clothes or household items to a local charity.
10. When booking a trip, look for the TripAdvisor Green Leaders certification,
awarded to top eco friendly hotels across the country. Hotel Felix is proud to
be on this list.
