Reviewed yesterday NEW

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...

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...

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!

Excellent location central to all one needs. The Stake & Lake restaurant is excellent with a great staff. The breakfast is a variety along with excellent coffee. Be sure to visit the Roof (rooftop bar).

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...

Great Location and Very visually appealing and spacious. This was in a very convenient location to the Parade and Chicago River dyeing. There was hardly a need to really have to travel too far for anything we wanted to do in the city

This hotel was fairly average. We chose this hotel due to its convenient location, near the theater district. The room was spacious and clean. Although not the hotels fault, it was rather noisy at night. We had an adjoining room and whoever was next door to us were quite loud. There were also quite a few loud people in the...

I travel to Chicago often and have stayed at many different properties. This was my first stay at theWit. From this point on, I will never stay anywhere else when in Chicago. The location is central with the El (easy and inexpensive mode of transit in Chicago) right outside the door. The State and Lake stop is a major connector,...

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.
