HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 December 2016

TheWit is close to the theater district, Magnificent Mile and many other areas in downtown Chicago. Everything seems to be in easy walking distance. The hotel rooms are comfortable and great. I love the views of the water when you get out of the elevator or from the room. This is the first time that we have been given a...

Off of the bat, I recommend staying at the Wit. One cannot get a better location. Moreover, the service we received from the front desk was exceptional. The room was very nice, ample storage and clean. The bed was softer than I like, however my partner was very pleased with his sleep. The only issues or imperfections that I feel...

Desk supervisors are unwilling to accommodate guest with special circumstances or needs. They were rude, unwilling to listen to the needs of their guests. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone with specific personal needs.

We were in Chicago one night for a show. We were pleased with the quick check-in and the professionalism of the staff. This was the first time we'd stayed at a Double Tree hotel so we didn't know we were supposed to get cookies. Luckily we were offered some when we checked out or we wouldn't have had the opportunity...

Came to town for a concert at the Chicago Theater. Excellent location, within easy walking distance to great Irish restaurant and right across the street from the theater. Room was very clean, bed very comfortable and staff extremely kind! Highly recommend for our next trip.

My experience was a mixed bag. The security in the rooftop bar were overbearing, the front desk staff were very welcoming and personable, the room was average and what I expected. It was nice that housekeeping brought up a fridge when requested and extra towels. The breakfast staff seemed unprepared for a large party although I had a reservation and...

Based on the advice of a handful of well-intentioned friends, I booked a room at theWit for a girls weekend...my friends who stayed absolutely Loved it, and I liked it. The front desk workers were incredibly attentive, friendly and accommodating, the decor was "hip" and "trendy" (two things I am not)...and the room was fine. The bathroom was tiny...the bird...

I continue to enjoy staying here. The hotel is clean, the rooms are functional, and the staff is generally helpful. I have noticed that there might be new management, as service levels have dropped just a bit. But I will keep coming....still better than most. And great location. Try the salmon for breakfast!

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
