There were many things we enjoyed about our stay at The Wit: the front desk staff was very friendly at check-in; fresh chocolate chip cookie upon arrival; the ambiance on each floor (birds chirping during the day; owls hooting at night); the room decor was fresh and modern; the location can't be beat; our spa experience was divine.
But there were also many things that were just a little off: a dirty washcloth wadded up on the floor of our room upon arrival; the in-room coffee pot was broken and took 2 separate phone calls to get it replaced; the mechanism that holds the shower head in place was loose, which resulted in having to stoop to get under the flowing water; hotel guests must use a card in the elevator, and it took many attempts before the green light would come on so we could punch in our floor number (meanwhile, the elevator would begin moving - sometimes in the opposite direction - or, more likely, our floor had been passed because someone else was able to punch in their floor while we were still trying to get our card to work...). While I understand the reason behind the card-in-the-elevator requirement, it was very touchy and very frustrating and is the biggest reason why we won't stay at The Wit again.
