Taketei Sushi Opens in Our Lobby

Sushi lovers, rejoice! Taketei Sushi, an Edgewater sushi favorite, has just moved into our lobby at the start of the month.

Opening its first location in 2012, Taketei is known for “simple rolls and affordable prices,” according to this article spotlighting the restaurant in Chicago Eater.

We are excited to share that the brand new location will also offer room service to guests in our hotel – so you can enjoy the sushi in the comfort of your own hotel room.

Let us take care of dinner tonight #taketeisushi #sushi

Chicago’s Outdoor Farmers’ Markets are Back

While Chicago has some of the most unique attractions to offer to tourists and locals alike, one of our favorite events that happen every Spring and Summer are the local Farmers’ Markets, which have returned to Chicago neighborhoods. To see a complete guide of Farmers’ Markets, click here.

Not too far from us – a Divvy bike ride away – is the Green City Market, located in Lincoln Park, will be active every Wednesday and Saturday morning from 7 to 10 AM with hopes to “improve the availability of a diverse range of high quality foods, connect local producers and farmers to chefs, restaurateurs, food organizations and the public and to support small family farms and promote a healthier society through education and appreciation for local, fresh, sustainably raised produce and products.”

While many Chicago Farmers’ Markets don’t start until June, it’s easy to take advantage of these events that are happening now.

Happy shopping!

Sustainable Art at Hotel Felix

We’re proud to be the home of three sustainable art sculptures outside our hotel that greet guests and Chicagoans alike as they walk by.

Loren, the ever-popular 7-foot, interactive “Doorman” and Madeline, Loren’s 8-foot love and “Green Queen.”

We started with Loren in 2010 as our first larger-than-life art sculpture.  Then, in 2011 on Earth Day, we added Madeline, who joined Loren and they have been a popular couple ever since.

In 2012, we added Scrappy, the four-legged eco-friendly pup as well.
