One of the best hotels I have stayed at this year! Very clean and modern rooms. Hotel staff is very friendly and there is a great roof top bar. The breakfast dining in the morning is excellent, I was pleasantly surprised with their creativity.

First, a shout out to Joel at the concierge desk, who managed to book a birthday reservation at a top restaurant. He was knowledgable and opinionated, exactly what you need if you've new to a city. The rooms are spacious, the housekeeping was perfect, the hotel room amazingly quiet. We could walk to almost everything we wanted to see, and bicycled and rode public transportation to sites further away. Chicago is an easy place to visit, but the central location of this hotel plus their friendly attitude made our first visit a happy one.

Room Tip: I think they must be all good.

Stayed at theWit for 3 nights during a business trip to Chicago, and there are many reasons to choose this hotel:

1) Location; On State and Lake street in Chicago's Loop district. A mere 5 mins walk will take you to Michigan Av, where all the shopping starts. Great central location. Also close to the river and the starting point for the Chicago Architecture Tour.
2) The Roof Bar; one of Chicagos best for sure. Great place for a light meal and drinks. Gets quite busy towards the weekend, but is a must-do in Chicago.
3) The rooms; spaceous, nice beds, clean and fresh.
4) The staff; very friendly and helpful.

Although theWit is rather expensive, it should be on your list if you are planning to go to Chigaco.

Wit it in Chicago!

I stayed here to explore Chicago over the weekend. Besides the night club on the rooftop where we had a great night out, the hotel is centrally located, perfect to explore the city. The rooms are modern, sapcious and extremely comfortable. Definitely a hotel to return to.

My wife and 2 teen-aged children stayed at theWit in late July, and we found the hotel to suit our needs perfectly. The interior is fun and quirky, but the staff, while being friendly, were attentive and very efficient. We all had breakfast (actually closer to noon) at their "State and Lake" restaurant twice, and they were both memorable. Really. The hash and eggs were hearty and "artisinal," the service was great, and the coffee was also great. We checked out the rooftop bar, but, while certainly cool and interesting, was too hip for us. The location is great--within easy walking distance to an El stop and the Art Institute. I sensed that the hotel was pretty full, but I heard no noise at night form other tenants. Overnight valet costs for a car are pricey, but this is Chicago; I knew that going into the vacation. I've already recommended theWit to a couple of people and will again to friends I know who are looking for something with color, panache, style, and fun.

Room Tip: On the 20th floor, I heard no street noise at all and had a cool view of interesting architecture an...
