We’re thankful and proud to be on Gogobot’s “Best Design” list for hotels, as voted on by their community. It’s a great pleasure to be one of the traveler’s favorites – thank you for including us.
Their review and reasoning stated:
“From the retro-looking Hotel Felix sign on the side of the hotel’s gorgeous red brick exterior to the chic, contemporary globe lights hanging from its interior…”
One of the reasons we’re Silver LEED certified is that our building was restored and we incorporated sustainable efforts into much of our interior design as well. We try to show our dedication to sustainability through every aspect of the hotel, including Natural southern exposure, which aids in heating building in winter months and carpet made of recycled material. In our rooms, we have a full recycling program, linen reuse program, and enhanced energy management systems in place to stay eco-friendly.
Much of our design are inspired by natural elements water, earth, air and fire. You can see in our lobby the magnificent fireplace that gives guests to a cozy place to site during the Chicago winter. Above that, are the globe lights, as Gogobot mentioned. The globe lights are there to represent air, as they dangle above guests coming through Hotel Felix. Our lobby is outfitted with welcoming earth tones that are also used throughout the rest of the hotel. The earth element is also tied into our design with our wall of wood. Located next to the fireplace this design feature brings in a natural element not usually seen in the concrete jungle of Chicago.
We are thankful that Gogobot included us on their list of “Best Design” list for hotels. Sometimes it’s not easy being green, but we are satisfied knowing that we can make guests Happy. Naturally.
