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...

The hotel is in a great location of the city, near the theater district, river and parks. Unfortunately the aesthetic appeal doesn't compensate for the elevators that don't always read your room key or the rooftop bar that will seat you for bottle service and table minimums... like they're some exclusive club. The check-in process was clunky at best. For... More

Dear Brenda G, Thank you for your review of theWit Hotel Chicago. It is unfortunate to hear that your stay fell below your expectations. The use of your key card in the elevator provides an extra level of security so only hotel guests can enter the guest room floors and I apologize that you were having issues with your key.... More

The room was extremely clean and the bathroom well maintained with very pleasant soaps and shampoos. The staff was extremely attentive. The hotel restaurant Lake and State was very good. To get to your room in the elevator you must swipe your room card--very good security in a hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights (Fri/Sat). We were very excited to be staying on one of the top floors so that we could have a great view of Chicago. Unfortunately, we didn't know that the top floor of the hotel is a nightclub. It is loud (we could hear it from our room two floors down)... More

The overall experience was pleasant. The room was clean and well maintained. The view was great and the beds were comfortable. The staff was friendly, including the servers at the adjoining restaurant. The one flaw was the nightclub at the top meant lots of drunk tools in the lobby. At the time we visited there were also proms going on,... More

Where should I begin. Had the absolute worst meal - totally tough and fatty meat - YUCK !In a room where the so-called curtain wall is moving with what I guess is meant to look like rain, but movement made me nauseous to look at whilst eating. Not to mention dirty glassware and silly slow service, esp when you take... More

This place has everything you would need for your trip be it Business or pleasure. The concierge (Eric) was the best. Made the stay even more enjoyable and went above and beyond his call of duty. The Spa was kind of disappointing as they closed early on most nights. (I.E. 7pm) and not open on weekends. Otherwise a great stay.

Everything seemed perfect. Great location, friendly staff. Then we got double billed as did other couple with us. Stonewalling and haughty attitude so unexpected. Booked Wit through online travel. Prepaid. Then hotel charged our card( one for incidentals) again. First time ever for this problem. Beware. We won't be back!

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.
