I booked this hotel MONTHS in advance for the Chicago Marathon. This hotel ended up being a great choice because it was within walking distance to the marathon start. It was great not having to worry about doing anything but just walking out the door. With that being said, it was my first time in Chicago so a good location... More

If there had been no twittering bird sounds, a baby next door, or missing drive-up portico, It would have been perfection. The pillows were yummy. I ordered one on Monday and got it Wednesday. Thank you for the pleasantries.

Erik, our concierge was a consummate host. He greeted us each morning by name and paused in his busy schedule to chat with us. It felt great to feel recognized and tended to. The bed was super comfortable and the room was clean.

Stayed here on a business trip. Nice base to walk from in downtown Chicago and right next to the public transit system. Good sports bar downstairs and fabulous rooftop bar. Breakfast portions for room service were very large (too much for most people !)

Great location! Room was clean! All of that was above my expectations however, from the time I arrived at their door till the time I left I was looked at like the help! If there was a dress code clearly I didn't get the memo, but everyone's attitude was so elitist and snobbish. Maybe they only do that to people... More

Boasting an excellent location near the business district, the Chicago Art Institute, the Chicago Symphony and all public transportation alternatives, this trendy hotel offers good amenities and comfortable rooms, both for business and weekends. Do not expect a view - you will be looking at other buildings. Room and public area decoration is of dubious taste, but does not interfere... More

Fabulous stay at TheWit for business/personal trip over the weekend. Furnishings were beautiful, staff was always friendly and helpful! My only complaints are minor - halls were FRIGID the entire four days. When it's freezing rain and below 40-degrees outside, there is no reason cold air should be being pumped into hallways. And only one measly little hook in the... More

I was on a business trip and we stayed at the WIT Hotel. Not only was it a beautiful hotel, immaculate and very pretty, the staff was incredible. Friendliest group of people I have ever come in contact with while staying in a hotel. I will be back next year for a conference. Thank you so much!!! Carrie Johnson
