My wife and I stayed theWit recently while on vacation in Chicago. The hotel is located south of river close to Renaissance hotel and the Loop including the train. We were upgraded to corner room due to Hilton status. The room was very modern was nice large bathroom and big windows. The hotel is nice because you get special privileges... More

I've never written a review like this...but there does come a time. We checked into the Wit after calling earlier to ask about the noise from the trains below, after reading reviews. They said that we would not hear the train. A quiet room/hotel is imperative due to health reasons. As I sit in the room writing this... The train... More

We stayed for 2 nights and were very pleased. The staff is great, and our concierge was always happy to help with directions or dinner suggestions. Our room was large, and the train noise was a bit disturbing, but not enough to keep us up all night. And as a Hilton Diamond, the breakfast from Town and State was a... More

We took the bus to get here and arrived here around 5 or 5:30pm.The lobby was in prestine condition. The exterior was excellent so far so good.

This hotel seems to be a study in contradictions, and I think it comes from trying to be a ‘boutique’ hotel that is also part of a major chain – kind of like a microbrewery owned by AB-Inbev. On the one hand there is a coolness of being different: an amazing roof top bar which I can imagine is even... More

Beautiful hotel my bf took me to for a weekend getaway. We went on a Sunday. unfortunately the rooftop club closed at 9 so we didnt get to experience that fully. We also went for fried chicken sundays but they ran out of chicken. Fortunately we found something else to eat, and otherwise we really enjoyed our stay.

Stayed at the Wit for a business meeting. This is a nice hotel in a great location on the loop. Rooms are nice and staff is friendly. The L train is right outside the door. Some complain about the noise of the train, but I find it to be part of the flavor of Chicago.

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.
