Hotel Felix in Chicago
The Hotel Felix is one of the most beautiful four- star luxury, boutique hotels in all of Chicago.
Located on the corner of Clark St. and Huron St. in downtown Chicago, the Hotel Felix is near some of Chicago’s top attractions. Nearby you’ll find the Art Institute of Chicago galleries and museums, Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum, the Lincoln Zoo and the John Hancock Observatory. Sports fans should visit Soldier Field, home of the legendary Chicago Bears and Wrigley Field, one of the oldest sporting venues in the United States. Contemporary art galleries abound in the River North area, and fans of fine dining should check out the famed Rush Street area.
The Hotel Felix is also nearby to many of Chicago's most treasured attractions. It is near to the Lincoln Park Zoo, and the Museums of both Contemporary Art and Science & Industry. Furthermore for the sports fan, it is a short distance from all professional sporting outfits offered by the city including stadiums and arenas for the White Sox, Cubs, Bulls, Blackhawks and the Bears.
The Hotel Felix offers three types of room for guests with different budgets and for larger families. All rooms come with plush new furniture in a contemporary design with luxurious high-quality linens and bedding for extra comfort. Rooms are available with a king, queen or two double beds. Every room in the hotel features a 32-inch flat-panel HDTV, a work desk, an in-room safe and wireless high speed internet access.
Once checked into the hotel, guests have a variety of amenities at their fingertips. The hotel offers valet parking for those with cars, room service available throughout the day, a full-service spa and free concierge service. The hotel also has a full restaurant in the building. Serving upscale American cuisine, Elate Restaurant has garnered rave reviews from Chicago’s foodies. Elate Restaurant also offers room service for hotel guests during restaurant hours.
If you are in Chicago on business the hotel offers many features that can make your trip stress-free and more successful. The hotel has multiple meeting rooms ideal for small, intimate meetings, and offers a variety of services, including printing and shipping. The Felix also offers discounts for businesses that reserve more than 40 room nights and a special rewards package that includes gift certificates to area restaurants, complimentary spa treatments, complimentary breakfast and a free night’s stay on a future visit. The hotel will also wave meeting room fees for any business reserving more than 40 room nights.
Experience simple, yet sophisticated, Euro-style cuisine at the hotel’s signature restaurant, LM Bistro. Our dinner menu features delightful dishes like organic salmon with wild mushrooms and tender chicken with black truffles. The bistro’s acclaimed chef, Bradford Phillips, has expertly crafted each meal from the finest and freshest ingredients.
Guests can enjoy specialty cocktails and international beers at the restaurant bar or choose from an array of wines from France and beyond. With the charming atmosphere of an authentic French bistro, LM is an ideal destination for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
LEISURE AT THE HOTEL FELIX
There is a world class fitness center that is also able to be used by guests at any hour of the day or night. This is ideal for those who might not always have the most appeasing schedule to get to the gym.
Away from their rooms, guests may also enjoy such amenities as the spa where they can get skin and body treatments and massages of every kind. For instance, there is the ASHA (Academy of Somatic Healing Arts) spa, which originated at the school of that name in Georgia. (The school is famous for pioneering in the healing arts, but that is a subject for another article.) They have acne relief, body polish, and even eyebrow design and wedding & makeup services here as well
One of the most interesting aspects of this hotel in the inner city is their ability to blend comfort with elements of nature. This takes people away from the hustle and bustle of the city and gives them a relaxing experience in the heart of all of Chicago's activity.
