I recently spent 10 days at the wit on a business trip - local weather conditions were pretty bleak so I spent most of the evenings and weekend in or immediately around the area. Luckily the room was a great size (although no kitchen area like someone else mentioned?), nicely modern, decent TV/Stereo/iPhone connectivity etc..
The rooftop bar is by all accounts pretty famous, everyone I told I was staying at the wit seemed to bring it up, but other than a cursory glance at it on a walk round the hotel I cant vouch for any more than the fact its pretty.
The food in both the ground floor and first floor restaurants though was excellent - on par with the best hotel food Ive had. The B8 burger particularly is just awesome, but if you've got anything other than a huge appetite be careful ;)
I'll be returning to Chicago in a couple of weeks time for another extended stay, and rates permitting I'd be happy to stay there again.
