“Nice modern hotel in a great spot in Chicago”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Stayed here as we had an event downtown, hotel is in a perfect spot to get anywhere in downtown. Service was great, rooms are very nice, bed was comfortable.

If there was only one downfall it would be is we selected a more upgraded room based off a picture their website had and when we got into our room that view was not there. When we talked they explained to us if you wanted that same view you would not get a view of the river, so we just stayed in the room, but I don't think we would have used extra points to get the room that we got.

Fun hotel, would stay again

Above average location with nice rooms, though some details are missing since becoming part of the Doubletree brand.
I've been upgraded the last couple visits which is very much appreciated, but the last time I stayed there, one of the showers was missing the shower head - how does that get missed...? That same bathroom had no amenities, and the bathrobes have been taken out of the suites.
My room service order was incorrectly made twice, so attention to detail needs to be addressed, though maybe that's what comes from being part of the Doubletree chain. It used to be better.

Thank you for the detailed feedback. Service and details ARE critical to our success and items described are atypical of the attention our team gives to such areas. Our Doubletree by Hilton "CARE" philosophy and Wit "Whatever it Takes" philosophy are more in line with what our own expectations AND delivery typically are. Be assured that we have followed up, internally. Bathrobes are still, absolutely, provided in suites and the Doubletree cookie at check-in. We will correct and aim for 100%.

Thank you.

My wife and I really enjoyed staying here for 3 nights. The rooms were well furnished, a nice size and very clean. The conceriage was very helpful in making reservations for us and the front desk staff handled the only problem we had well. That problem was the wifi. Not only was it not free but they had a confusing 3 tiered pricing structure. After the first night of the base plan with poor wifi performance we switched to the highest level and got the same results the second day. I called the front desk and they removed all charges but allowed us to keep the access. No reason not to choose this hotel, I just hope the fix this minor issue to get my fifth star. Thank you for a great stay.

Nice central location. Clean and modern rooms. Had lunch at Potbelly's across the street. Within walking of main attractions in downtown Chicago. Internet access is charged PER DEVICE. For example, laptop, iPad, iPhone = 3x charge. Be careful!

Right up the street from several places like Macy's and Old Navy. Lots of eating establishments nearby, including the restaurant on the top floor. Awesome view of the city in every direction. Check in was quick and efficient, and room was clean and huge. Would definitely stay again!!

I stayed at theWit this month and LOVED it. It was a great location with pristine rooms and excellent service. We walked to all major landmarks and easily jumped in a cab when the weather wasn't perfect. Sleep quality was excellent, no problems even in the heart of the city.

Everyone at the hotel was extremely friendly and accommodating - I wish that the trip would have been longer.
