There were long lines of drunk 20 year old's waiting to get into a rooftop club. While the service of the staff was exceptional, lack of quality... More

My daughter's wedding and reception were all held at theWit. She chose the Wit after looking at many other properties in the downtown area. We were not disappointed! Our social catering representative, Brittney Epstein was wonderful to work with. She handled the details beyond our expectations, especially when time was ‘getting down to the wire’ and our bride was a... More

The Wit provided an outstanding birthday weekend for my husband's 50th! We could not have been more pleased with their level of customer satisfaction - even before the weekend began. Eric the concierge is THE MAN! If you need anything, call him. The staff was welcoming, engaging and most importantly accommodating in every way. We would recommend this hotel to... More

Maid service did not leave toilet paper so had to track that down. finished project early and checked out on Wednesday at 6pm. Was informed that I would still be charged for Thursday night as well since it was within 24 hours. First time in 10+ years I have been charged for extra day when checking out early. This routinely... More

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.
