I stayed at this property in October of 2012. There is a cool, chic vibe to this hotel. There is a great rooftop bar atop the high rise hotel which overlooks the city, this is a nice perk to staying at this hotel, but you don't need to stay here to take advantage of the rooftop bar. The hotel is located across the street from the famous "Chicago" Theater sign. At this hotel you are within walking distance to the river and to the theater district. Great shopping is only 5 minutes away by foot. The room was large, very clean and had a great view of the train, which was cool for a first time Chicago visitor. I have already recommended this place to multiple people who travel to Chicago frequently.

Can really recommend. Not an old fashioned Hilton. Great location. Rooms are fairly spacious and well designed. Breakfast with incredible French toast and worst coffee. Always ask for an espresso. Fair value also with the breakfast arrangement.

The Wit, is a boutique hotel on State Street. It is walking distance to everything downtown and is close to the Chicago River. The rooms are hip and fun, with amazing dowtown views. But what makes this a GREAT hotel is; the staff! They are SO professional at what they do. Everyone from the concierge to the servers to the housekeepers went way above my expectations. We were treated like royalty and we will definately be back. The 27th floor houses the "Roof", a bar and restaraunt with retractable a roof and walls. This place is so much fun, with amazing views and ambiance.

Room Tip: If you can swing it: get a suite. Suites are really spacious, with modern kitchens, 2 flat screen...

Stayed 5 nights, staff are friendly & helpful. Location is fantastic!!! Rooms are clean and comfortable. Asked for early check in since we have to fly 20 over hours. No available rooms when arrived but staff was understanding and managed to get us a room within 15 mins. A good location for business travelers as well as those who enjoy shopping. Bathroom is clean & roomy, the only drawback is basin is too small & not enough space to put our toiletries. Will definitely come back to this hotel. Thank you to all the staff of The Wit!!!

Really the only thing that marred my stay was something the management probably thinks is the coolest thing. To whit (no pun intended), recordings of birds tweeting and chirping in the hallways. It was kind of cute but not at 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. or 4 a.m....well, you get the picture. Too loud. And the now-should-be-obsolete practice of charging for wifi in the rooms.

But the place is lovely, the locations is stellar and oh my view from the 25th floor of Millennium Park, the lake, and all the crazy cool Chicago architecture was fab. Warm cookie on check-in. 2 blocks from the blue line direct to O'Hare. Such welcoming staff and great hip but not too cool decor. Breakfast in their restaurant was amazing too.
