The staff and room product are absolutely above standards. They went above and beyond in making sure attention to detail was served. This stay was for business. This doubletree does not even seem like todays doubletree produce. I wish all were this level. I would stay here anytime.

Enjoyed a lovely holiday weekend downtown at the Wit. Location is phenomenal if you want to be next to the Chicago Theater, or in close proximity to the State Street shopping corridor (including Macy's.)

Great experience at this hotel. We stayed in a suite for our wedding, overall, the rooms are very nice and provide great views of city. The suite rooms are on top floors close to the ROOF so we did hear some bumping into the AM hours but other than that it was a great experience.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

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.
