Happy Fat Tuesday! Each year we celebrate Mardi Gras, also known as Fat Tuesday, at Hotel Felix Chicago. We treat the entire team – from the senior managers to housekeeping – to a delicious lunch. What’s best – everyone gets into the spirit by wearing beads and masks in celebration.
This year, we opted to have a nontraditional meal. Rather than the expected, we dined on Spanish paella, bread pudding, clams and more! Quite the feast!
Following are photos from the day, which you can also see a sampling on our Facebook page.
Fat Tuesday is always a great way to celebrate at the hotel and remind all team members how much we appreciate them. Hope you’re celebrating tonight too.

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.”

Troy and Randy celebrate Friday at Hotel Felix with their angelic rendition of “Build Me Up Buttercup” by The Foundations. Click on the link to listen!
We are proud to be Chicago’s first LEED Silver certified hotel because we strive to give our guests a great experience and stay Happy. Naturally. We try to welcome guests with an elegance inspired by natural elements, which can be seen in our décor with our wall of wood and cozy modern fireplace. Not only do we like to bring natural elements in, but we also maintain “green” standards to help sustain the elements outside the hotel.
Next time you’re in town, we hope you’ll stay with us or stop by to see all that our hotel has to offer. Tweet us about your upcoming travel plans and adventures in the city. Snap a picture and tag us on Instagram (@HotelFelix) next to our wall of wood. We love to know that our guests our comfortable and of course, Happy. Naturally.
Or, if you’d rather explore the city and get out, try one of the many activities happening right in the heart of downtown Chicago. Try ice skating in Millennium Park or a shopping trip down the famed Michigan Avenue.
At rates starting at just $89/night plus tax, this is an amazing deal in downtown Chicago. So, decide if you need relaxation or time to explore the city – and then make your arrangements. Hotel Felix’ always-accommodating concierge would be more than happy to help you book your trip. Have fun. Relax. Explore. The options are endless.

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.
There are only 7 more days left until Becky chooses a winner on January 22, 2014. Make sure you enter quickly.
The LM Restaurant Group, in partnership with chef Martial Noguier, recently discussed the new concept with Chicago Magazine. The River North location will be more sophisticated than the group’s other Troquet restaurant in Ravenswood. Chef Benoît Fliou, who recently relocated from Paris, will focus on serving simple French food from Troquet River North kitchen.
We are excited to welcome a new taste and exciting dining experience to 111 W. Huron. Bon Appétit!
