I stayed at theWit for 3 nights with my boyfriend. The hotel is fabulous. It is very clean and the beds could not be more comfortable. The staff is fantastic. We met Eric on our first day and he was great throughout the stay. Always offering a friendly hello and smile when he saw us, and more than willing to help us with anything from figuring out how to get from place to place as well as with restaurant recommendations. The location is also great, about a block from the Chicago River, and maybe 3 blocks from Millennium Park. Millennium Park is stop number one on the Hop on hop off trolley tour, so it is convenient if you choose to do that tour (which I highly recommend). We had breakfast at the hotel twice, and ordered room service once, and the food was delicious.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is higher up for a better view!

Very clean and modern facilities. Staff very friendly and professional. Fastest internet I've ever experienced at a hotel! Hotel located in very lively part of downtown, close to water and other attractions.

this hip new property is even fun for the seniors, great location you can walk to almost everywere. great roof bar weekdays, can't get up on weekends because of the private parties or lines of 20-30's - they should let hotel guest cut to the VIP line.

I stayed one night at The Wit and was not blown away. It's new, so the rooms are nice, but I definitely did not get what I expected with a Spa King room. I was told that even the bathrooms had windows but mine did not. I didn't like walking into a nightclub coming back and the keyed elevators are a bit of a pain when your key doesn't work right to unlock your floor so you get a to ride an elevator up to the 20th floor and back down. I found the hotel to be well-staffed but a bit busy contemplating their own beauty at times. Expensive and not entirely worth it.

This hotel is a hidden jewel. Very contemporary, great service and the location is ideal. Easy access to Michigan Ave and shopping or Millineum or Grant Park. Provides a reasonable running distance to either the beach or Shedd Aquarium. The staff was very accommodating. The cookies were delicious and even the lobby was great. As we waited for our luggage there is plenty of charging capability for phones, ipads, etc and the seating is comfortable.

This is a really lovely hotel; clean, well-furnished, EXTREMELY comfy bed, great location in the city. I was there for a quick business trip and was pleasantly surprised at how relaxed and comfy I was. The room size was good too. Although I didnt get to take advantage of this "hip" place; had I had more time, I would have loved to check out the rooftop.
