Fantastic stay. Friendly and accommodating staff (from all departments): Front desk even sent a chocolate dessert up to our room for my mom's birthday. It made my mom's day. I cannot thank theWit enough for this wonderful treat. Truly, an amazing introduction to Chicago. 'Loop' theatre/business district location: Central enough to walk to almost everything of interest. 'L' train station... More

Great hotel. Very clean. Friendly staff. I am always a little leary in big cities because it can be hit or miss on the cleanliness, but this was a great experience. Beds were comfortable, window coverings closed all the way.

Staff is friendly and respond very quickly to service and housekeeping requests. Rooms are comfortable and very spacious. Perfect location for theater, shopping and sightseeing. Rooftop bar is a must see. Restaurant fare is average but wait staff was exceptional.

The property is centrally located in the middle of everything. A vehicle is not a necessity as again you are literally walking distance from the best Chicago attractions. Whether it's food, entertainment, shopping or site seeing, this is your destination location. Rooms are well kept and service is outstanding.

I didn't know a Doubletree Hotel could be so cool and nice. Service was attentive. Restaurant good. Location fantastic. If you like the W style hotels, you'll like this. Great roof top bar as well. Attracts a younger crowd on the weekends.

Excellent location for the theater district and not too many blocks from Nordstrom and other shopping on Michigan. Bar on top of hotel is a popular club with long lines to get in, but we were only a couple of floors below it and weren't bothered by noise on a Saturday night. Rates seem to vary widely by date,

I was in Chicago for a week long conference and stayed at theWit. IT was a comfortable stay though far from the convention center. The hotel was located right next to the Chicago Theater. I got an excellent room on the 12th floor upon request overlooking the downtown. The rooms are with all the modern amenities, excellent views of the... More

I really wanted to like the Witt, however I was disappointed. At check in we were not told that $75 would be taken out a night for a deposit, if we had been told we could have made arrangements, but being a college student I was blindsided by a $300 withdrawal from my account (leaving my account empty for my...

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
