“Was a good choice”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Trip to Chicago for a weekend. The location was close enough to walk to most of what I wanted to see. If not, the train station was less than one block away. The staff was very accommodating to any requests. Great group of people working here. There is a metro line that runs along the south side of the building but it seems that it didn't run after 11:00pm. I am not positive of the time but I didn't hear it during the night. If I was going to Chicago again and needed to be downtown, I would seriously consider staying here again.

Located two blocks from Michigan Ave. with the Chicago Theater 1/2 block away, it's location is a standout! Convenient for shopping and dining. A 1/2 block from the Chicago River, 1/2 block from the L stop (train). Staff was courteous, helpful and professional. In-house restaurant had an excellent Sunday Brunch.

This hotel caters to the younger crowd, particularly given the rooftop bar which attracts many folks who are not staying at the hotel. The Loop location is excellent for tourists and business travelers alike. The gym is good and the internet fast. The adjacent restaurant is very convenient for breakfast. The warm cookies at reception in the evening are always a nice touch.

The Wit is a really great find in a city filled with options. It is very well located and in walking distance of all the cities best attractions. The service was excellent and the F&B for our three days of meetings really great. Lunches and breakfasts were not standard fare but rather well thought out, inventive and different. Tasty too! The room was large and comfortable with excellent amenities.

Room Tip: High rooms are good as the Elevated train runs past the hotel. Our meeting room was on the 4th floor...

Just returned from several days at The Wit. First, the concierge there -- Eric -- was excellent. We had an impromptu visit to Chicago without our usual planning ahead. We checked in and Eric helped us plan a great couple of days. He certainly knows Chicago.

Hotel is in an excellent location, rooms are a good size and competitively priced and service was excellent. Also, the gym is very good for a hotel. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful.

We read about the noise from the upstairs club. We were on the 19th floor but the noise really was not a factor on a Friday night. I think unless you are on the floor right below the club, I don't think noise should be a problem.

Highly recommend staying there.

This hotel offered guests in our party exemplary service, kindness and efficiency in all aspects of our stay. Our group had a block of rooms for a family wedding. Every member of our group was well-tended. Calls for staff assistance were handled promptly. Many smiles and thank you's from staff. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The beds and pillows were heavenly. I did not ask about free wifi (my fault) but would have appreciated being told about that. Hotel parking is a little pricey, so we would have appreciated a break there. As it was there is parking facilities about 2 blocks away for ~half the price. The bridal suite was gorgeous. The 10 bridesmaids plus mom and grandma had hair and makeup done in the room and we didn't feel crowded.

I took my wife to visit Chicago for the first time (my family is from there) and decided to stay at the Wit. We really enjoyed the hotel - the decor and the rooms. More importantly (for us) the location is great - allowing us to walk to any location downtown with ease. Since Chicago (during the right weather) is such a great walking town - this made our trip.

I would highly recommend the hotel. The staff was extremely pleasant, the hotel is "just hip enough" without being over the top and as I said, the location is superb.
