#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!

#WordlessWednesday with Madeline

Happy #WordlessWednesday! In honor of making it through the first half of the week, we’re spotlighting Madeline – who is made of reclaimed and recycled materials! During your next visit to our hotel, be sure to snap a photo of her! If the wind is just right, her hat will spin!

She’s also a pretty big Cubs Fan! #GoCubsGo

Explore Chicago With A Stay At Hotel Felix

We may be bias, but we think that our hotel’s River North location is one that can’t be beat! With our eco-friendly amenities and sustainable style, we think that a visit to our hotel and our beautiful city of Chicago would be an unforgettable one.

We were happy to see that Jenna Tracy – Life & Style Blogger of Cheers, J,  enjoyed her recent stay with us! Not only was Jenna able to experience all that Chicago offers in the summer, but she had the opportunity to stay with us – calling our hotel “the perfect place to relax and recharge after a long day of exploring.”

If you’re looking for the chance to visit Chicago like a local, check out Jenna’s post on some of Chicago’s best kept secrets.

Below are some photos Jenna captured during her visit – we look mighty fine in the sunshine, don’t you think?

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.

All three sustainable sculptures were created by a talented artist – Allen Christian of House of Balls.
