I have stayed at this Hilton property before, but this time they went above and beyond as a Diamond member. Danielle at the front desk upgraded my wife and I to a luxury 2-room suite. It was huge and included a full kitchen, couple of walk-in closets, sofa bed, and large soaking tub. The State and Lake restaurant is wonderful... More

If you are interested in a quiet hotel and a well-appointed health club, look somewhere else. This is a "W" type hotel that was designed for young patrons. If you like to be in a hotel where there are no kids, reserve a room. However, stay away from State Street and not too high on the back of the hotel... More

The location is extremely convenient for meetings at many offices downtown. I was really pleased by the all-around splendid friendliness from the staff. They went out of the way to greet us, which was really pleasant. The rooms were nicely appointed and the bed was extremely comfortable. There's nothing I can say about my stay that I didn't enjoy!

If you're looking for a great location and a very classy hotel, this is the place. No, it wasn't perfect...the rooftop bar attracts a huge crowd on the first floor during the weekend, but the location and price couldn't be beat. We went in April 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Pros: pleasant staff, great location Cons: rooms need refurbishing & to be cleaned better. The gym is lacking weight machines & has very little choice in free weights.

I just returned from a 5-night stay at The Wit with my wife and 15-year-old grandson. This is a stylish hotel that seems to cater to the young professional crowd. This conclusion was reinforced when I checked the hotel on the map with my phone and iPad and got The Wit Rooftop Bar. While that doesn't fit our description, it... More

The hotel was very nice and the staff was very helpful. My only complaint is that while people in the restaurant/bar downstairs were having fun, and people on the roof were partying all night, staff came to our suite four times in 3 nights asking us to keep the noise down. We were talking- no music, no TV, non jumping... More

High end hotel with high end amenities and fantastic location. The roof top lounge was fun. Staff is super helpful. We stayed during the Rock and Roll half marathon and walked all over Chicago. Location is very convenient to the L as well.
