Stayed at The Wit while in town for a conference. Very hip and trendy hotel that was perfect for my needs. What I really needed, though, was an early check-in as my meetings started around noon and I was landing at O'Hare just after 9 AM from the east coast. Needless to say I was going to be tired and needing to refresh before my day and night of meetings, etc. Front desk wasnt able to promise anything until my day of arrival, but when I called early that morning I was told that I could guarantee a room upon my arrival if I "downgraded" from a king-bed to 2-queens. That was fine, so I took them up on the offer and everything was great from there.
Had 2 meals in the hotel and all of the food was delicious. Echo others sentiments about the ROOF bar being cool and had no issues of my own w/the elevators, so I cannot speak to that.
