theWit is fabulous! It's a very fun, unique, hotel, yet it still has the comforts of a DoubleTree, most importantly, the delicious cookie. This hotel offers great views of the Chicago River and is also in a prime location! It was a bit loud, as there is a club on the roof, but that was exactly the reason we came,... More

I booked a Paramount Spa Suite for a staycation in the city as my flight to Florida was just not a reality during this past horrible winter season. I arranged to have a private chef come up to the room. Just before dinner, there was a minor issue which management jumped right on to help resolve. The chef came over... More

This trip was combination business and pleasure. The hotel has an excellent location, inc 1/2 block from the L. The staff, esp concierge, tried to be helpful. Room was nice. However, felt as though the place is dominated by the nightclub at the top. Long lines, security guards in lobby (which is too small regardless) and loud drunks in the... More

I was with a large business group and was pretty impressed overall with my stay. Somehow, with a huge book of rooms, they stayed on top of it all and don't recall of anyone having issues with their check in/out or complaints on the room. Room - comfortable, clean and had all the amenities you would expect in your room.... More

The Wit is a trendy hotel located in the northeast part of the "Loop" in downtown Chicago. The location is excellent, and is just a few steps from the subway/L lines that make transportation around the city a breeze. As is the case with most more expensive hotels, little additional is included. No free internet or free breakfast is offered.... More

Stayed at theWit this week-end with my wife and 21 year old daughter. The hotel is certainly trendy and stylish. The food at the State and Lake Chicago Tavern was excellent.

Danielle that works there was amazing, she wears many hats and really solidified our stay as stress free! For the price of the room compared to other close hotels you get a lot (with it still being upscale)! Rooms are modern and cozy, the spa is amazing, all the employees are very polite and helpful. The club is a plus.... More
