The Chicago Architecture website refers to it as a "former flophouse ... pretty nice when it first opened in the 1920s, but it went downhill as the neighborhood changed from residential to commercial to industrial."

It was completely rebuilt on the inside 8 or 9 years ago & is now the Hotel Felix.
