Chicago, Illinois
Reviewed yesterday NEW

$200 minimum for a table for the rooftop is a bit much. Waitstaff at the tavern seem to play the avoidance game. Front desk and pre arrival staff were excellent and made our stay pleasant overall. Pretty nice hotel overall.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

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...

This is one of my favorite hotels to stay at in Chicago. The rooms are spacious and well appointed (contemporary/modern), good restaurant/bar and friendly staff. Although the service was a little better the first time I stayed here a few years ago. The guy who checked me in this last trip had a bit of an attitude. The person at...

This was my second time staying at theWit, and overall it was a great experience. The primary reason I stayed at this hotel as opposed to other Hilton hotels was because of the location to the subway and the fitness center. The fitness center is probably my favorite part of the hotel! The view is great while you are working...

Everything was great for the most part. I have three tween aged children and needed a roll away bed, but was told that due to the room size, it would be a fire hazard, so we couldn't get one. If there are roll away beds to be had, I'd also assume that there are rooms to accomodate them, but wasn't...

Well located in loop, east walking to theaters, museums, shopping, restaurants. Service excellent. Rooms quiet and well appointed. Room with soaking tub great for relaxing after a cold day in Chicago. Really interesting extras... birds singing in halls (or crickets chirping at night). Lobby restaurant has a very good breakfast. You can park nearby for less than valet.

I stay in Chicago area, but we had a post-Holiday party @ TheWit and were told to stay there the night. Turned out to be a great experience, from the food, the staff, and the overall experience! I would definitely recommend it to anyone else.

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.
