My spouse and I recently spent three nights at the Wit (Sun-Wed). We had nothing but a great experience. (It does sound like the rooftop bar crowds on weekends can present a challenge for hotel guests.) Check in at the reception desk was smooth and friendly. The hotel has a nice boutique feel about it. The rooms are nicely appointed and have a great shower. The only downside of our stay was the room charge for the internet service. (I believe that free WiFi is available in the lobby area.) If you plan on using the "L" to get around, it would hard to find a better location than this. boarding points for all the lines, expect for the blue line are right out the door. The blue line is thee short block away. The location of the hotel allows for great walking access to downtown and the Miracle Mile on Michigan Avenue.We did not have a whole lot of interaction with the staff, but they were quite friendly and competent. During our next stay in Chicago we will certainly explore the possibility of returning to this great property.
