The word "felix" means "happy" in Latin, and when it comes to making the environment happy, this hotel is aptly named. There's no way to miss its eco-friendly attitude, which greets guests immediately upon arrival, from a 7-foot-tall "doorman" made from recycled pipes to organic coffee and a paperless front desk in the lobby. This hotel was the first in Chicago to earn Silver LEED certification and relies heavily on recycled products, right down to the materials used for guest room carpets. It also incorporates sustainability into its pampering, with 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.
