The carpet smells, it's dingy and its dirty. You can see the traffic that has been through these carpets. We changed rooms and still no difference. I know that Double Tree is better than this because I have been in many Double Tree hotels. My seven son asked if we can bring our carpet cleaner next time to help them.... More

Provided a meeting for 35+ attendees, planning was easy, accessible and service was top notch! The FOOD was INCREDIBLE, attendees saying best they ever had, not your "typical" banquet food and fun! I asked the banquet chef for the gazpacho recipe and ur appeared under my door a fewinutes later! Tada!

The hotel was located steps away from the red line/brown line. I also found it very easy to walk to Millennium Park and the Magnificent Mile. It was located near the Chicago marquee in the theater district which made for some great photos. My main complaint is about the Roof (bar on top of the hotel). In the evenings when... More

We stayed here for one night. Close to theaters and restaurants. Easy walk to most sites around Chicago loop area. Second time we've stayed here. If you're wanting to get to the rooftop bar, there is a long wait. We'd stay again.

Recently spent several days in Chicago to sight-see and attend the theater. Selected TheWit Hotel due to it's central location. We were not disappointed. Were able to walk to the theater, Navy Pier, Michigan Avenue, and Grant Park. The hotel was very clean and the room we had (Jr. Suite) was spacious and high enough that the road noise outside...

If you are planning to park your car here be aware that is $50.00 per day, we stayed 3 days and it was $150.00. There are tons of parking... More

Concierge was excellent. He went out of his way to hook my wife and I up to theatre tickets & dinner at the last moment. The only negative is that the cooling system never got the room below 74F. We checked in late & came back to a 78F room so we just thought that the room would eventually cool... More

The location is perfect for walking to many Chicago activities, the Magnificent Mile, restaurants on the North River Area, the EL, and architectural river boat cruises. Service is exemplary.

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.
