“Another more-than positive review.. :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

This is a great place to stay.. Super friendly staff.. a large, well-appointed junior suite with all the trimmings.. quiet in the room even though the hotel was busy.. kept spotless by housekeeping..

I could write an at-length review but I couldn't add anything to the general praise of my fellow tripadvisors..

The bar/grill eatery is fine for eating in. Again, super friendly staff.

The location is great. Close enough to most places. Next to El stations (for trips father afield).

As others have been reviewing; this hotel and its staff are simply outstanding. We stayed at the end of September for three nights using our Hilton HHonors points to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. I requested a corner room with views of Millenium Park and Lake Michigan which we were promptly checked in to when we arrived. In addition, concierge sent up a bottle of wine as a gift for our special weekend - that was a first for us! The staff: front desk, bellhops, concierge, housekeeping were always very friendly greeting us as we came and went; they really made our stay enjoyable. The location is fabulous within walking distance to all of the downtown attractions and within reach of everything else via the "L" just across the street. We never tried the Roof bar - it seemed too trendy for us nor the restaurant - too many fabulous places to eat close by that we had to go to first! It was truly a fantastic stay; we'll definately stay here again the next time we're in Chicago.

Room Tip: We stayed in Rm 1901. A corner room with excellet views of Millenium Park and Lake Michigan. It wa...

I loved theWit! The hotel is very modern and inviting. The hotel rooms and lobby are tastefully decorated. On the top floor of the hotel is a bar/night club. I am fairly young so I did stop by the night club for a short amount of time. Unfortunately, I am not into techno music so I did not stay long, but I did hear a song by Rihanna so the music was slightly mixed. The hotel is located in a great area. Shopping and restaurants are within walking distance. I would definitely stay at this hotel again!

Stayed here in the middle of September 2012 for two nights. Right next door to the "L" but you'd never know it. Booked a one bedroom suite which was on the 23rd floor and had views to die for (see pic). This room had kitchen, living space , separate bedroom and one of the largest bathrooms with separate tub and walk in shower I have experienced in a hotel. Didn't partake of the restaurant facilities as we used the kitchen! Hadn't been to Chicago for 20 years ... Do hope it isn't another 20 before I return and will definitely stay here again!!

Room Tip: Ask for Looking towards Millenium Park and out to the lake

The property is great, but the staff: i don't think there is a word to describ them, they are just the most best there is.
Either the people that greeted me as I came in and out each time at the front desk. The Concierge greeted me each time. The folks at the front door that said HI and helped with the door each time. The person from engineering that came and made sure the cooling system was working just the way I liked it. Then the young lady that came to my door to leave the letter from you explaining the loss of power earlier today, she was extremely nice also.
THEN, this afternoon a knock at the door, Mayte asked if I needed turndown service. She was SO nice. She was like a ray of sunshine when she came in my room. She asked if I needed ice and then said I needed a little gift/toy( a theWit Frisbees) and a card with a cute quote. Asked how my day was going. She was just so wonderful!!

Room Tip: every room is the best!!

The room was nice, clean and spacious with windows all around and very nice view of the river. The location was great! Right in the middle of everything! The front desk stuff were welcoming and accommodating. The only complaint is concierge as he sent us to the restaurant which was closed for reconstruction, but we just never asked him for suggestions after that. Overal very nice experience!

Stayed there for 4 nights for business in July 2012 - location is great - right near an L station and within walking distance of millenium park.

rooms were very nice - very trendy, well decorated and very clean.

as a gold member and for those who have read my reviews i am particularly aware of what i get at a hotel for being a gold member - breakfast coupons were provided, free internet and bottled water - the breakfast coupons covered anything of the menu, assuming you don't order 50 things off the menu. food was very good and service was very good.

had dinner there a couple of times and the food was good then too - exercise room was quite nice - the rooftop bar is probably the best rooftop bar i've ever seen - great viewing of the surrounding area and a lively place.

definately would stay there again.
