No way this falls into a classic Double Tree style. The Wit is upscale fun without the stuffiness of other similarly styled hotels.
In fairness I a am a Diamond Hilton traveler and get nice upgrades when available. The Wit is no exception. Spa rooms are awesome and offer the best views. I have stayed here at least 6+ times to date.
But, start from the easy Midway airport access for $2 on the orange line. Killer location and no luggage lugging as you get off at State and Lake street stop and boom. There!
The Wit is always well staffed and you can tell the Hilton training is followed to the "T". Lots of smiles and attention.
The food at the State & Lake restaurant has always been great quality and worth consideration for any meal while in Chicago where there are tons of options.
The Roof Top bar is perhaps the hotel highlight especially in summer months. Killer views, expensive drinks and plenty of active young adults going til all hours. Or older folk wanting to be young!
Next time you don't click on this hotel because it is assumed to be a boring Double Tree I suggest you take a Double Take as it is really, really fun.
