Great stay! Good price! Convenient to downtown! From check in to check out, the stay was great! I highly recommend this hotel for any business travel. Good breakfast that was easily picked up to go in the morning. Good night sleep.

The room was very clean and well laid out. We enjoyed the rooftop bar that overlooked the city lights. We also enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the hotel restaurant downstairs. The noises of the city kept me up at night but the location was perfect for the event we were attending.

Easy check-in; clean room; helpful staff. This is a busy busy spot in the city - so it's a little crazy out front some times - but that's why you want to stay here I guess. It's close to the loop, to theatres, to state street and Michigan ave shopping. downside: No quick grab and go breakfast, and valet parking... More

This was one of the best-located hilton hotels in Chicago (in my opinion). I booked the hotel with the intention of utilizing the ROOF on theWit for a romantic evening with my fiance. When I arrived to the hotel I was told that it was closed tonight and we were not allowed to go up there the next night due... More

A group of 12 of us stayed here in August for a bachelorette party after exhausting possible Airbnb options for our large group size. We had 3 adjacent rooms (2 suites and a double queen bed) with two of the rooms having adjoining doors. Rooms were gorgeous, decorated in fun & modern chic colours. The little kitchenette in the suite... More

theWit is located on the corner of Lake and State street. Right next to the elevated railway line around the loop. Is is walking distance of the river and most of the attractions within the city centre. The hotel rooms are of a good size. The bed was a bit too soft for my liking. For a hotel of this... More

By far the least helpful reservations personnel I have encountered. Wanted to request early check in. Could not or would not say if hotel was booked the night before to see if early check in was a possibility. Would not take a number to call you and let you know when the room is ready.

I am bitter about the management of this hotel. We booked an additional night (3 nights overall) so I can check in early morning to get ready for a conference. Sometime at 2am they decided to consider me a no show, kick me out, charge the card and discard me. Upon arrival the hotel was fully booked and a very... More

Very nice accommodations in a central location. A bit expensive but which hotel in the loop isn't? The staff were very helpful and always asking if we needed anything. The hotel is a block from the riverwalk, a few blocks from Millennium Park and close to the Red Line.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
