My first time staying at The Wit and would highly reccommed this hotel for convenience and hospitality.

The staff was gracious and accommodating at all times. Can't beat being welcomed at check-in with a warm cookie!

The location is fantastic. I was seeing theater at both the Goodman and the Oriental and both were very close. The Chicago Theater is also less than a block away. The hotel is also right next to the El to Midway so it made airport transport exceptionally easy.

The room is very nice and modern. Comfy bed, iPod dock, large flat screen tv (the direct TV takes awhile to find a signal, which can be annoying - I don't know if this happens with all satellite tv?). Bathroom nice and clean (though a large, flat and square sink would not be my design choice as it has trouble washing anything down the drain).

I asked for a humidifier when I checked in and it was brought up to my room within minutes. Room service was tasty and relatively quick. The concierge had an umbrella to loan me as I ventured out. Check in and out was quick and easy. The business center has computers that you can pay to use, but to just print out my boarding pass was free.

All in all an excellent stay.

I never really think too much about service at a hotel -- as long as it's competent and not overtly rude.

But The Wit's service is superb -- everyone was sincerely warm, welcoming, and eager to help.

I really like the rooms, even if, as some have mentioned, form doesn't always follow function. (The freely hanging sliding door in the bathroom that doesn't truly close, and the shower easily floods if you don't carefully adjust the shower head).

But the rooms are a real pleasure: fun, slick and stylish but really comfortable. One reviewer complained about the views, but our river view -- which we reserved specifically for -- was absolutely wonderful.

Very well done! Professional and efficient check-in by friendly staff, breakfast at State & Lake was nice, room was clean and perfect. Stayed a long 3-day weekend, loved Roof and the staff - brought clients on Saturday and while a 30 minute wait, door staff on second floor took care of me and was ushered right in with guests. Made a major impression, they were very professional. Room service also fantastic, Charles was top-notch!

We switched our reservation from the Conrad to the Wit and absolutely loved it. The hotel is new and has an amazing look from the lobby to the hallways. Staff is incredibly helpful and attentive. Rooms are done in a very modern look with excellent bathroom fixtures. Bed is very comfy.

Visited roof, the bar on the top floor. While it can get crowded, guests of the hotel receive passes to get in if it's too crowded. It can be touch to get a table, but the staff will take care of you.

All around an excellent stay!

Planning our out of town business meeting was made easier by the staff at the Wit. You are greeted at the door and the hospitality does not stop there. The staff is warm and caring. Our guests felt so welcomed, it felt like home! What a wonderful hotel and located in such a wonderful city. I would reccomend staying in one of the suites and if you do you will never want to leave. It is a perfect place to gather friends, family or business associates ! You will not be disappointed.
