We stayed at theWit for the first time last night. Overall, GREAT EXPERIENCE! We live in the suburbs, and usually take the train, but decided to drive. The only negative of this hotel is the drop-off area out front. The valets work very hard, but it's just a very awkward area to try to stop a car and unload due to the amount of traffic and the very small sidewalk area in front of the hotel.
Check-in staff was very helpful, and very quick to open up a new check-in line when the crowd in the lobby started to grow. We were able to check into our room around 12:45 pm, well before the published check-in time. We requested a quiet room, and two of the staff members actually huddled up together to go through the available rooms before deciding which room would be best. We ended up with a corner room on the 14th floor. We could see some of the lake, and we did hear the train and city noise, but the "white noise" of the city was not unlike any other city hotel I've stayed in, in any location. If city noise bothers you, turn on the a/c and bring ear plugs.
Room size were better than average, amenities were good, and the rooftop bar was awesome! We went in the afternoon for a drink, and the view could not be beat.
We will be back to stay at this hotel. The staff tries very hard, and I would say that they exceed expectations!
