We stayed at theWit over Memorial Day weekend while visiting our son. The reason for choosing this hotel was the exceedingly close proximity of the Red Line train station as we had tickets for a Cubs game. We were not alone in choosing the hotel for this reason. Many baseball fans arrived and left during our 4 night stay. I... More

I enjoyed every aspect of this hotel during my stay. The rooftop club looked awesome when visiting although I didn't stay, I'm not into partying or clubs. If you are into having a night out you should definitely try that place out! Staff was friendly and helpful. There were food places, CVS and Walgreens within walking distance. There onsite restaurant... More

Staff makes you feel welcomed, rooms comfortable well appointed, great location in relation to things in the City. Theatre district events close by, and also plenty of additional great restaurants and shopping close by too. Transportation easily accessible and Concierge is informative to aid with getting the most out of your time there.

I enjoyed my stay at The Wit! Front Desk staff was very helpful and even got me a upgrade for my Gold HHonors status. Room had a beautiful view of the river and downtown Chicago. The State & Lake Tavern restaurant was amazing for breakfast! I would stay here again when I return to Chicago.

theWit is extraordinary. Great location to totally ditch using a vehicle for your stay. Great service staff - loved the concierge Erik; very personable. That Shannon was a good teacher. Rooms were eclectic, yet tastefully appointed. Additional bathroom amenities for creature comforts was on point. The food at State/Lake was excellent - they make a simple smashed potato at breakfast... More

Great location with easy access to transportation and local attractions like the River Walk and Millennium Park. We were upgraded to a suite which was very clean. The staff was extremely friendly. The Roof Bar was very interesting but probably geared for folks a little younger than us.

From the moment i was greeted at the front door until i was farewelled this hotel was a pleasure. Everyone I came in contact with was happy, courteous, friendly and eager to assist.

Great location for sight seeing in Chicago. This hotel is next to the "El" and a block from the river. Perfect location for shopping and sightseeing. Trendy, modern, with an awesome roof top bar. Supposedly, THE place to be, according to the locals. Staff all around were fabulous, friendly and helpful! Free wifi in the lobby. Loved the floor to... More

Been wanting to stay here bc I've heard good things. It was okay. The rooftop bar is what makes the hotel great. The room wasn't the greatest for Chicago. Small bathroom. Sink sucks and gets dirty easily. Probably won't be returning. Staff is friendly though and it's in a good location.

Great location and excellent accommodations. Hotel extremely busy--appeared mostly with wedding parties. We picked the hotel in part for their roof top bar with view of the city. But the bar was closed off to hotel guests due to wedding receptions. Arguably the most attractive feature of the hotel wasn't accessible to guests. Without access, it seemed to us to... More

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.
