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.

Happy 2014! At a time when we reflect on the year in review and all the excitement of 2013, we were happy to see the most popular Instagram hashtag was #love. Mostly, we were happy to be a part of that #love since we started our Instagram in 2013.

‘Tis the season for holiday parties! We had a blast at our holiday party last week at Dave & Buster’s.
Our team at Hotel Felix celebrated the festive season, along with the team at our nearby property, Hotel Cass – a Holiday Inn Express at Magnificent Mile. From pop-a-shot to billiards, we played games all night long!
Happy Holidays to you and yours – and a healthy and happy 2014!

There’s nothing quite like a positive, four-star review. It simply makes our day because our team works hard to make sure we provide the best service and a comfortable stay.
We received this review on TripAdvisor, a source for travelers looking for reviews and sources on hotels and resorts.
What made this post stand out to us? Well, for starters, we love that this guest was a little uncertain in the beginning but felt right at home upon arrival. He liked our sustainable artwork, modern lobby and comfortable rooms.
Plus, we always love hearing compliments about our team members. Special kudos to:
– Housekeeping staff: “friendly, efficient, and thorough”
– Front desk staff: “helpful in assisting with locating restaurants, excursions, and even a shoe repair (thanks again Jordan)”
It sounds like this guest took full advantage of our amenities, such as our business center, plus the convenient location.
The full review can be seen here.
We hope you visit again soon!
