A guest room at Hotel Felix in Chicago


Hotel Felix

The word "felix" means "happy" in Latin, and if we're talking about making the environment happy, then this hotel is aptly named. There's no way to miss its eco-friendly attitude, which greets you immediately upon arrival, from a seven-foot-tall "doorman" made from recycled pipes to the lobby adorned with elements that represent fire, water, wind and earth. Along with sustainable art, this hotel — the first in Chicago to earn Silver LEED certification — relies heavily on recycled products, including materials used for guest room carpets. It also incorporates its sustainable efforts into its pampering, with organic locally roasted coffee and the use of natural Aveda products at Asha Spa. Throw in low-energy-use lighting, green cleaning supplies and structural preservation during development to avoid landfill, and it's easy to see how this hotel is a top choice for eco-travelers in the Windy City.
