We will eagerly await repeat visits!

Room was clean, furnished well and big enough for the two occupants. The elevator security was good. We enjoyed the first floor bar/restaurant - good food and drink and friendly staff.

Hotel's location was convenient. We go to Chicago every year year for a trade show. The Wit was the 7th hotel we've stayed at, and we'll return next year.

My note to HHonors regarding this hotel....This is my second stay at theWit and both by far have been the best Hilton experience this HHonors member has ever experienced. The staff, from the bellman, to the front desk, to housekeeping has an exceptionally pleasing attitude which makes you feel completely at home. This will become the only hotel for me and my staff in Chicago. Whomever is managing this team is doing a phenomenal job. It takes true leadership to deliver this consistent level of energetic, customer-centric service. Well done!

Room Tip: Get above the 21st floor to avoid the street noise. Views are good from all sides.

My husband and I had booked a room here to stay after seeing Barry Manilow in concert. We had pre-paid for the room-Barry Manilow couldn't perform and the concert was rescheduled. We decided to go into Chicago and stay anyway.
We thought the hotel was beautiful and our junior spa room was roomy and very comfortable. We liked that we were close to so many restaurants and shops and could walk to Millenium Park and actually walk to the lakefront to see the sun rise.
The staff at the Hotel were SO friendly and accomodating. We really felt welcome here.
We will stay again in July when Barry Manilow actually does his concert.

First of all, this trip was paid for by work and was for only a single day. The hotel is located very close to the Metro so getting to it from the airport (although a longish trip) is a cinch and super cheap. The proximity of the hotel to the Theater 'district' is a plus and it's within walking distance to a few restaurants.

We had breakfast at the restaurant in the hotel and it was good. The rooftop lounge has phenomenal views. The rooms were nice and comfy. Nothing to complain about at all.
