My husband and I stayed at the Wit for the first time the weekend before Christmas as we wanted to be in the Theatre District for Wicked. We enoyed the hotel so much that we came back in February to see Les Miserables. We wouldn't stay anywhere else as the Wit is in a great location and we have always... More

You can believe the hype when it comes to this hotel. Modern, clean, friendly staff, good food and the little details that made this place all that. My husband and I stayed for my 40th birthday. We were greeted at curb side by the valet. It was pouring out and they walked me to the door under their umbrella, very... More

I have read other reviews. Some fabulous, some good and some pretty bad. Our experience for our 20th wedding anniversary was lovely. We booked the bed and breakfast package online. It was pricey, but we wanted a nice place. The location is truly great. We had a request for an upgrade for a certain price and it was granted. So... More

Loved the Wit! Very stylish hotel, great location just one block from the river and steps from the train (but not noisy). We were celebrating our one-year anniversary and they upgraded to a suite on the 26th floor, complete with a bottle of champagne (thanks, Wit). I liked the little touch of bird sounds in the hallway (that change into... More

Stayed 2 nights for a family trip with 3 teenagers and a 7 year old. They arranged adjoining rooms and allowed an early check-in. Front desk was welcoming, enthusiastic, and energetic. I called for an extra blanket and within 5 minutes it was there, still warm from the dryer (comfy!) Housekeeping came late at night to change the entire bedding... More

After a long day, I needed to check in. Carlos quickly handled everything. I also needed help with printing materials for a client. Bryan cheerfully handled it for me, double-checking that I had exactly what I needed. I appreciate their help! Nelle, February 23, 2011

Our overall stay was great. The rooms are nice and clean, staff is friendly, the breakfast at State and Lake was really good! My only complaint is that our bathroom was always cold!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
theWit is intelligently renewing one of the original "It" locations on the corner of State (the great) Street and Lake. Its history is rich with artists, theatre people, journalists and musicians as it is nestled between the theatre district and the river. Blending the amenities of a resort with the flair of a boutique hotel, theWit has brought a new energy and vitality to the downtown Chicago Loop. Striking design, unparalleled comfort, and remarkable services create a dramatic sensory experience. This is a destination for anyone who gets "It" or at least wants to. ... more   less
