Right next to the biggest Walgreens, shopping district and Chicago theater, the location is perfect. Hotel staff and stay is wonderful. Next time our group is in town for a conference we will make sure to book our stay here

We stayed at the Witt for 2 days. It is so close to Macy's for the Christmas experience. The Christkindle market was just 2 blocks away. The hotel is in the theater district and so convenient to plays and excellent restaurants.

My husband and I stayed at the WIT for the Thanksgiving holiday. My husband arrived a day before me and once in the room, heard a small child crying in the room next to us.

We always choose the Wit when we go to Chicago. It's at the epicenter of everything! The rooms are updated, large and always super clean. The staff is so helpful that they got us in our room immediately and we were 5 hours early!

We will definitely stay here again next time we're in Chicago. It was perfectly located near all the "loop" trains and subways. Theatre and Ballet were but a stone's throw away.

Good location but service was slow and our reservation was lost. Had to recheck-in the second night. Valet parking was a nightmare - could never find anyone. The room was decent, but not stellar. The location was good for us, but for this price there are much better values in the same area

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.
