Hotel description
theWit is intelligently renewing one of the original "It" locations on the corner of State (the great) Street and Lake. Its history is rich with artists, theatre people, journalists and musicians as it is nestled between the theatre district and the river. Blending the amenities of a resort with the flair of a boutique hotel, theWit has brought a new energy and vitality to the downtown Chicago Loop. Striking design, unparalleled comfort, and remarkable services create a dramatic sensory experience. This is a destination for anyone who gets "It" or at least wants to.

Excellent hospitality. Everyone who assisted us during this stay absolutely exceeded our expectations. From the complimentary cookie while checking in, all the way to holding our bags while we roamed the city after check out. Thank you Wit for resetting the standard on guest service.

Yes, but depending on the floor and the side you may just get a “basic” view versus more of a “skyline” view if that makes sense. We stayed on the 11th floor but I believe the rooms start on the 4th floor.
