I spent 3 nights in the hotel for a conference. Only issue we found were crowded elevators. On the rest, meeting rooms, catering and staff were great. The rooms are modern and nice with a good rain shower. Gym and general installations are good. As per the roof top bar is nice but was expecting higher altitude the ones in... More

We had a great experience here. The hotel met or exceeded our expectations. The staff was very attentive and accommodating. Looking forward to a return visit when the weather is warmer and we can enjoy the rooftop bar.

My wife and I stayed in a Junior Suite for a night during the 4th of July week. Check-in was smooth. We got there quite early and they were happy to hold our luggage until our room was ready while we went out and explored the city. A bellhop (wish I could tell you his name) gave us some great...

I don't think guest should have to pay $60 a day if you're a guest. Very expensive. Guest should be able to park for free. As far as the staff goes, they are excellent. The hostess at the desk are friendly. I would recommended them if you're not driving

Too noisy. Feels like your staying in a club. Seems to now cater to a younger more hip crowd. If you're not in the 20-something range, stay away. The Palmer Hilton (if you're a Hilton Honors member) is a professional environment than The Wit. We won't be staying there anymore.

Spent six days for a business conference. Hotel staff were always friendly and willing to help. Rooms were great and the food was good throughout the stay. All the staff I encountered were willing to put in a little extra effort to help. Loved the warm cookie on check in! The ground floor bar had a wide range of craft... More

Stayed here for a business trip and it was perfect. The staff, the facilities, the bed and bedroom were really good. Service was top class, always attentive, not in your face and people seemed genuinely nice and wanted to help and serve. To top it off, the omelette at breakfast was to die for.

We decided to try out this Hilton Family Hotel and we were pleasantly surprised. We had a Jr. Suite - a great room with an excellent view. The Sports Bar had good food and good service and hotel staff were courteous and aware. We will stay at the Wit again.

I liked the location on State street, not far from Macy's , bus stop as well as the Michigan Bridge! Design of the hotel is lovely, room in good size and bathroom cozy. Hotel is clean, most rooms have nice view. Breakfast, offered in restaurant operated by separate company, has several good choices. I would stay here again.
