The service was very good, and in addition to the great value from the Embassy Suites brand this property provides an upscale change of pace in a great urban setting. I recommend the Wit for business and leisure travel.

After a thorough online search for a hotel within The Loop, we settled on The Wit. We were not disappointed. The location close to three 'L' stops, multiple theatres and the river was what made this our choice for a quick family trip over spring break. Check-in was easy, the room was modern and comfortable, and The Roof bar was... More

I liked theWit. It's weird, but good. I expected a more modern building when I saw the pictures. I'm not saying the building is old (like Palmer House old), but it's not new either. I guess this hotel is ideal for companies, conferences, events, etc. For example, they offer three different speeds of internet (none of them are free, however).... More

Great place to stay when going to the theater. The roof top bar is awsome great atmosphere drink and food. My son even enjoyed himself in the afternoon with the heated outdoor space. All the staff was friendly and helpful and we will stay here again.

My husband and I were in town for a friend's wedding and stayed at theWit because that's where the bride set up the block of rooms, hospitality suite, etc. Since I booked the two nights separately, I was told that they were going to be placing two holds for incidentals. I gave the desk clerk one card to pay for... More

Our room was clean and fresh. Comfortable beds and a nice view of the river. Was a perfect location for going to a show at The Chicago Theatre. Warm cookies when you check in. Very efficient check-in and helpful staff.

Pleasantly surprised at how nice this hotel really is. From the staff who works here, to the restaurants and bars, to the rooms, everything top notch. The Rooftop bar is not to be missed, and being a hotel guest, does mean no cover. The views are spectacular, the hotel made great use of the space, plus the drinks and food... More

The Wit went above and beyond to make me feel so special during my stay. Before I even arrived, I received an e-mail from the concierge, Eric. He made reservations for us and offered to plan our entire night. We were able to get into our room hours before check-in. Upon checking in, the hotel had placed cupcakes and a... More
