What a great hotel and an awesome visit! Carrie and Eric, both front desk managers, were fantastic… professional and yet so welcoming - we were treated as VIPs from the moment we entered the front door.

As Diamond members we have questioned our loyalty to the Hilton brand due to lack of recognition and benefits at many properties.

The Wit exceeded our expectations in every way. The food, the view, the people, the room, the location… perfect.

We loved our stay and love this hotel. We will return.

What a great place! Even before getting to Chicago, I just so happened to be in a business meeting and mentioned that I was heading to Chicago and would stay at the theWita, he mentioned that he was from Chicago and that he and his family have stayed there and highly recommend it. We were given excellent service from Lydiya from the moment we got to the front desk until we left through the revolving door 4 days later. She was very pleasant and accommodating since we got in a little early after a flight from LA. Even on the last day, we asked for a late checkout and it was granted. As great as Lydiya is, the rest of the staff are also welcoming and very pleasant from the bell desk to the restaurant host and servers.

Having Hilton Diamond status got us a very nice upgrade and what a room! A direct view of Marina City! The exterior has a nice clean, yet very modern look. The interior decorations are clean and simple with nice touches of fresh flowers. The second-floor lounge lends itself to the name of the hotel, a great place to chill.

The restaurant has excellent food and nice fresh options, you don't really need to eat outside since there is a variety of options. The rooftop club seemed to have a lot of guests based on the amount of traffic trying to get into the hotel. Our room was a few floors directly below, and we enjoyed the vibes coming down. We got to eat there for the Saturday brunch, again with excellent food and drink options.

theWit is perfectly located with all the public transportation options just out the door as well as being in the middle of most of the wonderful Chicago attractions. The subway station is only 2 blocks away so it's an easy in and out to ORD. The Chicago River is a block away, the Magnificent Mile just past that, and in the other direction the Millennium and the other great Parks are all within walking distance. You really don't need a car by staying at theWit, just get a Venta card from at the airport and take the 45 minuet ride to theWit.

This was my 4th trip in about 20 years of going to Chicago, and I'm happy that I chose theWit based on its location and seeing some other reviews. I'll definitely stay there on my next trip to Chicago.

A big Thank You to Lydiya and the Staff of theWit!

We were greeted by the friendly bellman and check in was a breeze with Nick S. Through our whole visit he assisted us with where to go and waters every time we asked. We stayed in a two room suite with a kitchenette that was so helpful with having our two young children and us adults being on a more restricted diet. We had a place to keep and prepare our food when we didn't eat out. The mini fridge actually had pooped out and another one was quickly brought up to keep things cold. We loved theWit and would recommend to anyone staying in Chicago. Make sure to get with Nick S. for anything you need while there. He's your guy!

As a Diamond member, I chose TheWit Hotel for a relaxing stay in a spa suite to celebrate my birthday. After serving as caregiver to my late father, I was looking forward to celebrating my birthday with a healing & relaxing stay. It was cold that evening in Chicago and the experience during my birthday was disappointing due to being checked into a room with temperature controls that did not work at the time.

I had reservations, but I decided to give theWit another try. Upon entry, the staff greeted me with kind words and smiles. Carrie made me feel welcome during the check-in process. I checked into the room and was relieved to find the temperature controls fully functioning. The corner suite itself was clean with floor to ceiling windows presenting gorgeous views of the loop. The well-lit bathroom had a separate tub and shower, as well as a window for taking in the city during a relaxing bath. I appreciated the modern fixtures and furnishings and the bed was comfortable. I also took a few meetings from the room, so the WiFi was adequate. As far as location, the hotel is central to restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. Overall, I enjoyed my stay as it was peaceful and I will return. If you’re looking for a Hilton experience in Chicago, I recommend trying theWit.

Reservation was made through the front desk in November 2022 for June 2 and 3rd 2023. On the 2nd , check in was done per the app and received room assignment and virtual key at 1030 am. At 5:30 pm we arrived at the hotel and stopped at the front desk to obtain an actual key. We were informed our room had been given away. They stated they had overbooked and had a room for us at the Holiday Inn. They called us a cab ( but refused to pay for it) and said this was common practice for them. They downgraded us from a 4 star hotel to a 3 star and refused to compensate us. We contacted their customer service 3 times and were given a case number. They never returned our calls or responded to the “case. “. Spoke to the Manager at the Wit and sent him proof of our reservation. He stated he would get back to us within 3 days. He never returned our calls. The reservation was very expensive and the treatment we have received was atrocious. Obviously Hilton no longer cares to maintain a good reputation.

This was the first time I've stayed at the Wit since it ditched the Doubletree association and was renovated. My friend and I wanted to be close to the downtown Christkindlemarket which is only a few blocks away. I miss the darker, sexier vibe that the Wit had before the renovations. The hallways and rooms are much brighter now, and the lamps, and décor don't really flow together. All staff we encountered were great and we enjoyed being downstairs from Roof, which is still a modern and fun late night spot. The food & bev credit for HHonors is better than at most Hiltons - $36 per day. Plenty of plusses at the Wit, definitely give it a try when visiting the Loop area of Chicago.

Prior to my stay, I wrote to the hotel GM as I was concerned about street and train noise. My concerns were well noted and I was put up at an appropriate corner unit of the building. To my pleasant surprise, this was an upgrade! The king spa room came with a separate living and dining space. The tub was a godsent to counteract the chilly weather. Amenities were always available upon request, not something I encounter with most hotels in USA. The best part? Service with a smile, any time of the day, from front desk to housekeeping. Housekeeping was immaculate in understanding my needs and just got better each day. To me, this high level of hospitality simply reflects the capability of the leadership team. I am definitely coming back again!

Back at theWit!!
This hotel is the only one I stay at when visiting Chicago for work. I usually get in pretty early and the front desk team always helps to get me in early, even if I pay an early arrival fee. I love this hotel and everyone there, they are friendly and really have an interest in my wants and needs. The Roof is a great spot to unwind and relax after a long day of work… see y’all soon!

The hotel is nice enough but they'll charge you $25 as an early check-in fee, which I don't understand. I didn't ask for an early room especially for me. You told me a room was already available. What does it cost you to let me in early? It would just be sitting there empty for a few hours. They also don't provide free wi-fi. This isn't a Best Western. You don't need to nickel and dime your guests like this. These are services that less ~luxury~ hotels provide for FREE.

The location is very accessible to the train, but there are certainly other hotels in the area too.

P.S. the towel hook in the bathroom is as far as humanly possible from the shower door, and that's a huge pet peeve of mine.

5 out of 5. The 22nd floor Junior suite was gorgeous with views overlooking the city, floor to ceiling windows and light panel controlled blinds, a large bathtub and shower. The rooftop is by far one of the coolest spots with the dopest ambiance.
