I had the chance to stayed at this hotel and it was a great experienced ...the roof top club was awesome but the drink price was too much but a once a life time thing unless you a rich snob. clean and great services from the staff.

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...

We flew into Midway and loved that the L train stop is right outside the doors of the Wit. We were also pleased with the fact that we were centrally located to walk around to our points of interest while we were there for a long weekend. Great Staff! Very please with the Wit!

The hotel was all I could expect (and more), but the staff astounded me! A much warmer, more personable and caring staff than any hotel I've stayed in, including luxury brands. From check in to check out and every point in between, The Wit's team kept us impressed. And I'm very hard to impress.

Upon entering, I was very skeptical of theWit, fearing that it is geared to Millennial hipsters. That is indeed the case, but it also worked nicely for this Gen X non-hipster. Check-in was fast, and they had us sign an acknowledgment of their noise policy. I was grateful that the hotel has and evidently enforces a noise policy given the...

theWit is a very nice and convenient hotel to stay in Chicago. Tons of shopping on State Street is just steps away and of course no visit to Chicago is complete without walked the short distance to Millennium Park and a visit to the Bean! The beds are comfortable and the rooms are a good size for hotels in Chicago....

Sadly, the early morning came and I had to leave the warmth of one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever stayed in. Centrally located, great amenities, and the room I had was fantastic. The roof top bar is pretty neat with a great view of downtown Chicago. The drinks are a bit pricey, but it is Chicago.

I was only staying in Chicago for one night and unfortunately the Roof Deck was closed on sunday! How is that even possible? I chose the Wit for the roof deck and didn't even think to check about Sunday hours.

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.
