Travelling with my wife, the #1 priority for her in a hotel is cleanliness, & the Wit is THE cleanest hotel we have ever stayed at. It does help that the hotel is only about 1 year old.
If you love new, ultra modern decor, then this hotel is defnly for you. We booked the Spa room & got a lovely SouthWest facing corner suite, with enormous windows. The bathroom was immaculate & the giant tub & windows in the bathroom were awesome.
I do agree with the previous review that you can definitely hear the Lake St train at least from our 15th floor. We are not very light sleepers so it didn't bother us. Also, I agree that the valet does take quite a while to bring your car up.
Nonetheless, overall we were extremely pleased with our choice of hotel & its great location...One other nicety about the hotel was the helpful front desk lady. We had originally booked 2 nites @ the Wit & planned to leave on New Year's eve. Upon arrival, we decided we also wanted to stay New Year's eve, but didnt' want to change rooms. Originally, our Spa room was fully booked for that night, but she was able to check during our stay & found a way for us to stay in our same room on New Year's eve.
