We stayed here for a friend's birthday. We really enjoyed our room and the modern theme of the whole establishment throughout. Enjoyed the atmosphere of the rooftop bar as well as some of the drinks. Great location to catch the metro or short walk to nearly everything. The staff were friendly and every aspect from check-in/out was smooth. We enjoyed... More

Great staff, super friendly and willing to accommodate our every need. Clean modern hotel! Stayed here with my teenage daughter and will definitely be back! Wit is a great location for shopping and some of the best restaurants in Chicago.

The Wit is much nicer than I typically associate with the Doubletree brand, so I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival. The hotel is in a very convenient location in Chicago, close to great shopping, restaurants and things to do in the city. I was here for two nights attending meetings hosted in the hotel. My room was ready for early... More

I'm a frequent Chicago visitor and had heard nice things about The Wit, so was excited to stay there for the first time. The experience was 100% perfect across the board. Cheery greeting and quick check-in, fantastic food and drink in the bar (even after 10:00PM), a fascinating photo collage near the elevator, clean/comfortable room, and a restful night. Superbly...

My husband and I went to Chicago to see Louis CK for an overnight of laughter and romance on Jan 5, 2015! We were upgraded without charge to the 22nd floor overlooking the city and the Chicago Theatre(literally steps away). We were greeted with warm cookies, Brittany at the front desk made our accommodations and she was very pleasant, helpful,... More

I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Chicago. The service was fantastic, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the restaurants and bars are really great places to hang out and the rooms were a good size and well appointed. Great location too. Couldn't ask for anything more from a hotel.

Stayed for a weekend with the guys in Chicago. Great rooms and accommodations, service excellent. Right in the perfect spot to get anywhere by foot or short cab ride. The restaurant located in the hotel is rated as on of the best as well. Would definitely stay here the next time.
