I arrived later in the night and they upgraded me to the presidential suite because of ending a diamond member. The room was huge to the point of it was eery. The restaurant attached was very good for a late night snack..great front desk service and good breakfsst.

We booked the Wit for 3 nights the week of Thanksgiving. I was a little concerned after reading some of the reviews about the noise from the Rooftop, but upon arrival we learned the Rooftop was closed for renovations, so it was not an issue for us. Our room was very nice, with a view of the river and State...

I really appreciate staying at The Wit hotel when i go to Chicago. The location is perfect, the staff is nice and very professional, the rooms are modern and comfortable and The Roof Top experience is something you can't when you go to Chicago.

This is a very nice, upscale hotel close to a lot of major attractions downtown. The price is right compared to other hotels of its caliber. The staff is friendly and helpful, they give you warm cookies when you check in, and there are these funny nature sounds playing through the halls. The cons are that you have to pay...

Gouge pricing, hipster hotel, crowded / poorly laid out lobby, and daily short sheeting of my bed means a bad experience at theWit. I won't be staying there again unless I can avoid it. The location is nice and the rooms are OK. That's about all I can say.

The Wit is a great location in Chicago, near the large Macy's on State Street and within walking distance to the fabulous shops on Michigan Avenue! We took cabs a few times, but mostly walked. All in all, it was an awesome 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.
