I was at the The Wit for an entire week on a company training program. I have some complaints about the service offered to the group, but I will ignore this for the sake of this review, since I don’t know how much responsibility lies with the hotel (e.g., one of the breakfasts was a Mexican breakfast and there were no basic options such as oatmeal or toast, even when asked for!).
Check-in was quick. We were given a high room, with great views over the city. It was big, very comfortable, and clean. I must give the hotel extra points for the great desk in the room – I believe it was the most comfortable working space I’ve ever found in a room. The chair was comfortable and it had proper lighting. Also, the room had a mini kitchenette, with refrigerator and microwave.
Reception/concierge were great. We received a lot of packages during our stay, and they immediately brought them up to our room. Great job!
Location was also good, right next to a tram stop, and within walking distance of the Magnificent Mile and of Millennium Park.
I didn’t try the regular restaurant. We had all the meals with the group – food was good, although choice was a bit awkward sometimes. I also didn’t enjoy that sandwiches were always full of sauces or cheese (no healthy options).
