The room block is for Friday and Saturday night stays, but may be extended. Room rates are subject to all state and local taxes, currently 17.4%. The following group rates are per room per night.
- 1 Queen Bed $179
- 1 King Bed $199
- 2 Full Beds (Double) $209
Reserve your room by clicking on this BOOKING LINK or call the Hotel Felix directly
(312.447.3440). When reserving by phone, indicate you are part of the Wellesley College Class of 1977. You will be asked to provide a credit card but will not be charged at the time of booking. Would-be guests can cancel as little as a day before their intended stay.
If you think you may be sharing a room with a classmate but aren't sure, you are encouraged to reserve a double ASAP. The hotel has a limited number of double rooms. If you later want to downgrade to a single, this is easily achieved, as opposed to later upgrading from a single to a double.
