We just stayed at the wit with our kids. Not a great a family hotel. you have to go through a crowd of drunk twenty something's hanging outside the lobby smoking and waiting to get into the rooftop bar. There is hardly a lobby and what there is is filled again with drunk people waiting to go upstairs. This hotel... More

Was here for a bachelor party, and it was a great experience. Rooms were much nicer than I expected for a Doubletree, and the location in the heart of downtown was perfect. Walking distance to restaurants, etc. The club on the roof was also excellent. Had a great time!

Living about an hr outside the city, I have stayed in numerous hotels here. TheWit never disappoints. They always display exceptional service and attention to detail. This time was no different. Josh at check-in was very welcoming and our room, a Jr Spa Suite, was perfectly situated on the 21st floor w spectacular views of the city and Chicago River.... More

$300.00 for parking for 5 day - very sad $75.00 for a week of Internet in the room - very disappointing and over priced. Food in the restuarnt was good however $20+ for breakfast is over priced. If you are staying in downtown Chicago then this is a nice place to stay, however get ready to pay through the teeth... More

My girlfriend and I had a great time this hotel. Love the room and had a great view! Had excellent amenities and love the rooftop bar / lounge. Excellent location, you can pretty much walk to anywhere you want to go....close to all the sites and restaurants.

Room cards were a big hassle every time you used them. Half of the time the staff could not even use them. Was billed for parking, and I did not drive. Breakfast was horrible!! And took too long to get service. Not enough wait staff. Just not a good experience.

This was a business trip, but my wife was able to make the trip with me. We had a wonderful 9 days in Chicago and theWit only enhanced our stay. Great staff, very attentive and helpful in all ways. Good, clean room and a nice on-site restaurant which we used for breakfast.

Trip to Chicago for a weekend. The location was close enough to walk to most of what I wanted to see. If not, the train station was less than one block away. The staff was very accommodating to any requests. Great group of people working here. There is a metro line that runs along the south side of the building... More

Located two blocks from Michigan Ave. with the Chicago Theater 1/2 block away, it's location is a standout! Convenient for shopping and dining. A 1/2 block from the Chicago River, 1/2 block from the L stop (train). Staff was courteous, helpful and professional. In-house restaurant had an excellent Sunday Brunch.
