My wife and I spent the weekend at theWit on our Staycation. The hotel screams trendy and luxury. The attention to detail is amazing. We stayed in one of the spa rooms with a king sized bed. The room was beautiful. Every item in the room felt like it was apart of a well thought out plan. There was nothing but top-notch finishes. The spa tub was enormous, and the bath had a separate show with a removable shower head. I could probably right all night about the hotel, the room, and the service, but I will sum it up in one word. Outstanding.

Had a quick weekend stay back in November for a football game. The hotel is very nice, very clean, and beautiful decor. In a perfect spot right by the river and guests get quick access to the rediculously swanky rooftop bar. Beware of the $45/day valet fee, thats whether you go in and out or leave it there until you leave. Im assuming its probably the best way to go in the city but if you are more familiar with cheaper options near by, definitely avoid.

great place, plus location-loved the room and view. How can you not like a place where they greet you with warm cookies!

Room Tip: not the same side as the train or subway

the Wit by Doubletree was an excellent hotel, I would recommend to any traveller in Chicago area. Great accomendations. bathroom sink was a little shallow for my taste but classic. Very centrally located, subway was right outside front door. Staff was very helpful and accommendating. Rooftop Bar was very crowded and loud we couldn't even hear ourselves talk, but very lively and festive.

Room Tip: Chose a room facing State street better view

Quirky decor, excellent service, prime location and the comfiest bed that I've possibly ever slept in. TheWit is right in the loop, close to prime shopping, dining and entertainment. Check out the rooftop bar. Great in the summer, but also cozy with fireplaces in the winter.
