we frequently attend events at the Chicago Theater which is within feet of the the Wit. The location is great for all of the mag mile including restaurants. Check in is efficient and all staff including valet, bellmen, desk and housekeeping are some of the best I have experienced anywhere. State and Lake restaurant provides room service which actually delivers... More

I really enjoyed my stay. The staff was courteous, pleasant, and helpful each time I saw them. They were also very responsive, and extremely professional. The room was clean and very nicely decorated. The linens and pillows were AMAZING.

The desk staff was great. Danielle was so friendly and helpful. Joel at the concierge desk was most helpful helping us get great tickets to the Chicago Theater to see Jeff Dunham. Only negative - the eclectic looking sinks in the room were sloppy and shallow.

Absolutely loved our stay at theWit! Great contemporary hotel with a fantastic location and service. My wife and I came in from the suburbs to celebrate our 25th anniversary and had a blast. The roof-top bar was a fun place to people watch and enjoy the phenomenal views. The Concierge, Sean, was wonderful and did a great job of making... More

Everything was excellent. Hotel was clean, fresh, food good, staff superb, location was spot on. Walked where we had to. Roof Top Bar very cool. Parking is a bit troublesome. The airconditioning in the room didn't get cold enough for me.

All staff were very courteous and helpful throughout my stay. My room was very clean. There was some noise from the nearby L, but the hotel was in a very good location in the middle of the city. Excellent experience overall.

Wow! This hotel was amazing. As a design student i absolutely loved this hotel and its great design! Walking in was fantastic and definite eye candy- not so much to the ears with the bad choice of seagulls in the background. Everything from the rooms to the staff were very good looking! The room was conveniently located to many key... More

I was very pleased with every aspect of my recent stay. The food was great and the service was first rate. I will definitely return. I heartily recommend it. The property is beautiful and well situated near the Miracle Mile. The food was extraordinary. I arrived on a Monday night, late, just before the restaurant on the lobby floor closed.... More

I've stayed at a number of Hilton properties, and sadly my visit to the Wit was only one quick night. From the valet, to the front desk, to the housekeeping staff - the service could not have been better. What else can I say? They are a well-led team of professionals. I'd stay at the Wit again in a heart... More
