Great central location downtown. Hotel is just a few blocks from the river and Michigan Ave....and just steps away is the L stop State and Lake. The front desk was always helpful and knowledgeable. Chicago is the place to be for St. Patrick's Day and TheWit should be your home base for travel.

This hotel was great! My friends and I stayed here for a bachelorette weekend and booked a suite with a connecting queen double room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The decor is very cute and service was amazing. Spacious rooms and extremely clean. The roof top bar has a great view, loud music, and expensive drinks. Only issue I had was with the reservation center when I booked the rooms, which was not The Wit's fault. They booked my reservation wrong twice and finally had to ask for someone present at the hotel and not at the corporate reservation center to get what I wanted. The location was great for us. Not far from the blue and red line. There were plenty of restaurants around.

This is one of the best hotels in Chicago. The service levels are consistently awesome; the bell staff and the front desk staff are the best in the City. The rooms are modern, clean and trendy and offer some of the best lake or city views in the city. The State/Lake restaurant serves amazing food and I would choose to go there even if it weren't in the hotel (there's also a separate street entrance). The Roof bar is hands-down the best bar in the city - especially when the outdoor spaces are open in the summer months. I have stayed there every couple weeks for the last several months for business. My only regret is that with the peak summer rates starting, the cost will be over what my company would allow me to spend per night. But I look forward to my return to the Wit in the Fall! The only thing to note is that if you're a light sleeper, the sounds of the "L" train stop at the corner could be a deal breaker for you; for me though, I am an urban dweller and a former downtown Chicago resident, so the city noises actually help me sleep like a baby!

Located nicely in downtown Chicago, the Wit Hotel brings the right amount of service and quality for very comfortable stay. It isn't trying to be the Ritz Carlton but if you're looking for a young and hip place without the stuffiness and great staff, this is a great place.

The employees are very helpful and greet you with a smile as they open the door. Check-in was prompt and Hilton Diamond Honors benefits were explained immediately. As usual, a Doubletree cookie was offered at check-in.

Rooms were a decent size with a chaise and queen-sized bed. Room service breakfast was pricey but service was prompt and made me feel like I was a special guest. Without a room service card for two nights, I called the front desk to order my breakfast, and on the 2nd night of calling, they remembered (or managed to quickly look up) my order from the previous night.

Every night, there was turndown service, and a little gift/charm left on the bed.

One big advantage of staying at the Wit is access to the ROOF. We ended up there for two nights with table service.

A couple of minor issues were:

1. Sometimes putting in your keycard into the elevator still didn't allow you to push the button.
2. Could have used better water pressure in the shower.
3. The bathroom sink looks very cool but is not very practical.

Overall, a fantastic 3 night stay, with friendly/professional staff, great decor, and amazing location!
