Besides the great location, food, and well appointed room, the highlight of the trip was the world-class personal service delivered by the customer team. Eric L. in particular went to great lengths to help me get a suit pressed after lunch, for a dinner engagement! In a hotel with 20+ floors I felt like I was the only guest and...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 March 2017

We knew it was likely to be an enjoyable stay when I received a call two day's prior from guest services to welcome us to the hotel and inquire about any needs or special requests. An unexpected surprise from a DoubleTree, but indicative of the friendly and impeccable service we experienced throughout our stay. We arrived at noon, several hours...

This was our first trip to Chicago and we wanted to stay at a place where we could see the city and walk to a musical and other great places. We went to a White Sox game and wasn't sure the best way to get there. The staff walked us through using the train. We needed directions to various places...

The Wit was part of a birthday weekend and a nice comfortable (and fancy for us, we usually camp in our tent!) hotel. Our room overlooked State St., the trains and the Chicago River. Didn't use the restaurant or the bar as our time was limited as we were out and about seeing the sights! The location of the hotel...

Everything about the Wit hits the mark. Location: extremely convenient to the theater district, Millennium Park, the museums and Michigan Avenue.

The Wit is a stylish, modern hotel with a wonderful central location on Street just south of the river. We took the train from O'Hare and pretty much walked everywhere. We had taken the redeye in and arrived quite early, but the staff graciously checked us in with no muss and no extra charge. We had a corner room on...

This is a very comfortable, clean and modern hotel located in the heart of everything. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. Two bars (ground floor and rooftop) are excellent. Called The Witm there are creative touches throughout that play on the theme of the witty traveler that are fun and funny.

Unless you want to pay a lot to sleep directly under a dance club. Rooms are beginning to feel dated, things are falling apart, cobwebs everywhere. The location is obviously great. That's about all this place has going.

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.
