Stayed at The Wit in early July for the first time and loved it. The hotel has a very trendy vibe and great location for sightseeing, shopping, and dining. I ate in the hotel restaurant for dinner and breakfast which was very good. The bartender was very helpful when I inquired about different beer choices. She asked me what I usually drink and then gave me a taste of a beer she recommended. For breakfast I decided on the eggs benedict which is athe BEST I have ever had anywhere...a must if you like eggs benedict!
We requested a room on a higher floor so we would not hear the train which was honored. The room itself was a nice size & nicely appointed. I didnt visit the spa however I did work out in the gym which was very clean & has a good array of machines. I could see the ESPN building and watched a basketball emerge from the building and sign autographs for the waiting fans.
The Roof bar was showing a movie the night we were there which was a very cool! How amazing to sit on the roof of a hotel and watch a movie with approx 100 other people in a very relaxed atmosphere.
Love this hotel and cant wait to return in Sept for Chicago Gourmet!
