What can I say about the Wit Hotel? It's fantastic! A wonderful experience awaits! One of the best beds I've ever slept in--we got a great night's sleep every night. The location is fantastic! You can walk, catch an easy taxi, grab the bus, and/or take the Elevated Train anywhere in the city. The hotel is centrally located. Traveling from the Midway airport to the Wit was a snap on the CTA Orange Line. The trains are very clean and fun to ride. The hotel staff is extremely helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive! Our room was always straightened up and tidy when we returned from our adventures at the end of the day. I had made special arrangements with the Concierge of the hotel beforehand so upon our arrival, my wife was treated to a great floral arrangement, chocolates from three different chocolatiers in the city, champagne, and a deep-dish pizza (something my wife and I hadn't experienced before)! I can't say enough about the Concierge! Li Feng went to great lengths to assist me in surprising my wife. It was in celebration of our ninth wedding anniversary. The view was great. We could see both the Chicago River and Lake Michigan from our view (18th floor). Again, Li was always ready with a dinner reservation, suggested site seeing, tour, etc. I strongly urge anyone visiting Chicago to take the Architectural Boat Tour of the city (which the concierge helped me set up). The bar at the top of the building, The Roof, was fantastic. Not only was the view breathtaking but the drinks and food were very good. The food is served in a "tapas" fashion. The staff are very attentive and friendly. The room was very stylish, roomy, posh, friendly, and inviting (see attached pictures). There are two plugs on each bedside lamp (for mobile phone charging, etc.). Near the desk, you can attach your laptop to direct Ethernet or phone line, TV connection, electrical outlets, etc. There's one very helpful telephone by the bed which speeds up contacting the front desk, getting room service, housecleaning, etc. We spent one night indoors and it was great (room service was fast and the food excellent). I can't say enough about the bed. Even though I didn't take photos of the bathroom, I can say that it was always clean and very well appointed (really nice fluffy towels). The sink is shallow so be careful when running the tap. There was a combined tub and shower in our bathroom and water-saving toilet. The door separating the bathroom from the main room was also a full length mirror. Throughout the day, forest and animals sounds are played in the hallways to mark the times of the day! We loved it! One of the best hotel experiences by far!
