Flashback Friday to Eco-Chick’s Visit to Our Hotel

Last year, we were excited to welcome Lindsey Brown to our hotel. Brown is a blogger for Eco-Chick, which is “the world’s first sustainable living site for women.”

Brown, who is the managing editor. focuses on sustainable fashion, health and travel. We think that our hotel was a perfect match to host her during her time in Chicago!

Here’s a quote from her piece:

“I found Hotel Felix to be equal parts luxurious and environmentally innovative. I appreciated the small details at Hotel Felix during my stay such as its use of gorgeous reclaimed materials throughout the hotel, smart lighting and energy conservation in my room, the abundance of natural sun exposure, and even some ethical art.”

Here are some photos from her visit:
