My brother and I stayed here for four nights in early April and it was perfect for visiting Chicago. The location of DeWitt is very central, with great access to public transport. We were able to get the CTA from O'Hare to the hotel with no trouble.
The building itself feels a bit dated, but for the price one cannot complain. The room was very spacious with two double beds, a sofa and television, toilet and shower, and a full service kitchen. There was also a reasonably equipped gym and sauna on the ground floor. The free wifi was a bit hit and miss but was fine for checking email. The kitchen was very useful as we were able to cook food in the room using the kitchen, and store things in the fridge. The water from the tap isn't drinkable, however there is a Walgreens just down the street where one can buy bottled water. We also travelled into Chicago late at night to eat, and had no trouble or issues walking back in the evenings.
The staff at DeWitt were very helpful during our stay, and organised a taxi back when we were pushed for time.
Would certainly stay here again upon returning to Chicago.
