#WordlessWednesday with Madeline

Happy #WordlessWednesday! In honor of making it through the first half of the week, we’re spotlighting Madeline – who is made of reclaimed and recycled materials! During your next visit to our hotel, be sure to snap a photo of her! If the wind is just right, her hat will spin!

She’s also a pretty big Cubs Fan! #GoCubsGo

Explore Chicago With A Stay At Hotel Felix

We may be bias, but we think that our hotel’s River North location is one that can’t be beat! With our eco-friendly amenities and sustainable style, we think that a visit to our hotel and our beautiful city of Chicago would be an unforgettable one.

We were happy to see that Jenna Tracy – Life & Style Blogger of Cheers, J,  enjoyed her recent stay with us! Not only was Jenna able to experience all that Chicago offers in the summer, but she had the opportunity to stay with us – calling our hotel “the perfect place to relax and recharge after a long day of exploring.”

If you’re looking for the chance to visit Chicago like a local, check out Jenna’s post on some of Chicago’s best kept secrets.

Below are some photos Jenna captured during her visit – we look mighty fine in the sunshine, don’t you think?

Hotel Felix Featured in Tablet Hotels

We are so excited to share that our hotel has been featured in Tablet Hotels – “The original hotel curator for global nomads!”

Tablet loves to share hotel options with customers to provide “effortless online booking at the lowest available prices, and live, dependable customer service.” After starting the website in 2000, Tablet Hotels hopes to help customers “earch of a cure for boring travel and an antidote to the internet’s most common affliction: an overdose of options.” To learn more about them, click here.

As you may already know, Hotel Felix was Chicago’s first certified LEED Hotel – and we continue to pride ourselves in our sustainable business model and eco-friendly amenities.

The following is an excerpt from the article featured on Tablet Hotels:

“Felix occupies a classic brick building whose structure was essentially preserved in the renovation — another green measure, as it saved quite a lot of building material from the landfill. Inside it’s contemporary as can be, however, with luxe comforts and the latest electronics.”

Chicago Has the Most Popular Tour in America

The most popular tour in America is right in Chicago’s backyard – the Chicago Architecture River Cruise has the most popular ratings according to Trip Advisor!

It makes sense, considering Chicago has some of the most beautiful architecture in America (and we’re a little bias) and tours on the river is an excellent way to learn more about what the city has to offer without going through Chicago traffic.

Happy sightseeing!

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION – taken from The Field Museum’s website:

“This year, not only can you see real dinosaur fossils inside The Field Museum, you’ll be able to imagine what it would have been like to walk among these breathtaking animals in Jurassic World: The Exhibition. Get closer to dinosaurs than ever before in Jurassic World: The Exhibition! Based on one of the biggest blockbusters in cinema history, the Exhibition immerses audiences of all ages in scenes inspired by the beloved film. Now, the park that was only a promise comes to life…right before your eyes.

Travel to Isla Nublar as a VIP guest and explore Jurassic World. Stare in wonder at a towering Brachiosaurus; come face-to-face with a Velociraptor; and get a rare up-close look at the most vicious dinosaur of them all, Tyrannosaurus rex.”
