My 11 year old daughter and I attended a show at the Chicago Theater, which is just steps away from the hotel. From the time we checked in, we were treated like VIP's! Everyone was so helpful and I appreciated the interaction they had with my daughter, she ate it up! We stayed in a corner one bedroom suite with... More

Our room was exactly what I needed and it was better than I expected. We got the one bedroom suite I think that was the room category. I was looking for a room that had a separate living area as well as a kitchenette. We needed to host some family members in between graduation and the party. It worked out... More

My wife and I would start off each morning with a delicious breakfast in the State and Lake Chicago Tavern. Then we were off to see the sights of this great walking city. We can't say enough for the way that the... More

Lobby staff and concierge very helpful and always available to answer questions. Stay lasted for two nights and several wedding parties had chosen the hotel. Although we were not there for a wedding, I was impressed at how well the hotel staff welcomed and handled the various requests of the various wedding groups. That included helping wedding party members into... More

We travel to Chicago frequently to visit our son and most often stay at the Wit if it is available. The front desk staff is always welcoming. The rooms are clean and up-to date. We especially like the two room suites and the corner rooms. Be sure to ask for a room away from the train if noise bothers you.... More

Great location, views, and service. Room was good and bed was comfortable. Very modern décor. Only possible room for improvement might be better bathroom lighting and a more useable makeup mirror. But it was a very nice stay.

The room was very clean and, spacious. The Rooftop Bar was excellent place to celebrate my friends birthday and the service was remarkable. The added touches even made it more special. Smaller hotel but worth the stay.

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.
