#WordlessWednesday With Scrappy the Dog

Another #WordlessWednesday is here and we’re excited to be spotlighting Scrappy the dog! Scrappy is located right outside of the front doors to our hotel and he’s definitely a fan favorite: who doesn’t love dogs?

We love being able to feature sustainable art throughout and outside of our hotel and Scrappy is a great addition to what makes our hotel unique and eco-friendly. Below are a few photos of Scrappy: be sure to snap your own photo during your next visit to our hotel and Chicago!

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.
