Definitely on my list of top Hilton properties in the city now. Eric and the rest of the staff provided us with a great stay, including a tour of The Roof. I've never had a staff member at ANY hotel who seems to work as hard at making people happy as Eric does. With a virtually unlimited stream of chocolate chip cookies, my daughter was very happy, as was my girlfriend with her bottle of wine. Nice view of the river from our rooms on the 15th floor, too.

Our only glitch was being charged for internet one night (guessing one of the teens signed in the wrong way) and not getting the "hybrid" parking rate, but those were taken care of quickly and without argument.

Dear Jeff F,

Thank you so much for your kind words! It was an absolute joy to take care of you and your family while you were staying with us here at theWit, so I'm thrilled to hear that my service had such a memorable impact on your stay! Whenever your kids are ready for more warm Doubletree Chocolate Chip cookies we have them hot and fresh here at all hours of the day. I am happy that you enjoyed your room with a river view, but I do apologize that you were accidentally charged for internet and were initially charged the wrong parking rate. However, I am relieved to know that we were able to fix these issues for you right away. Please contact me if you are ever returning to stay with us at theWit, it will be a pleasure to have you and your family stay with us again anytime!

The Wit was recommended to us by a relative. It was our first stay there and we were very satisfied. Pleasantly surprised to have an Alexa assistant in our room, which we used for nearby restaurant recommendations. We enjoyed the outdoor seating at Lake/State restaurant in the late afternoon, and then visited the roof top night club in the evening. We always enjoy our summer visits to Chicago and The Wit made this visit even more enjoyable. We will defintely stay there again.

Dear Alan S,

Thank you for your kind feedback! I am so happy that your first stay at theWit was such a memorable one, and that the Alexa that is featured in our rooms on the 19th floor helped you find some nearby restaurant recommendations! I am also glad that our patio seating at State and Lake Chicago Tavern, and our incredible ROOF bar, helped you enjoy our hotel from top to bottom! Chicago always has such an incredible vibe during summer, so please come visit us again at any time. When you do return, please feel free to contact me directly as I would love to welcome you back for another amazing stay at theWit!

I'm extremely pleased with my recent stay at theWit. It was my sisters bachelorette party and I wanted to find a place that was centrally located, large rooms, and good amenities. They met all my expectations and more, especially the staff. Everyone that we encountered went above and beyond, very friendly, and helpful. I've traveled and stayed in a lot of hotels but none that have had such great customer service. The rooms were quite spacious and the floor to ceiling windows made the views even more incredible. I would highly recommend staying here! We will definitely be back.

This was my first visit to theWit and based on my visit, it won't be my last. I had a great room with a beautiful view of the river below. Everything was clean, the service was very helpful and the restaurant had one of the most amazing burgers I've ever had (The Tavern burger).

This hotel is well located to the theater district, Magnificent Mile, Art Institute--everything, really. Stayed in a Paramount Suite for a girl's weekend. Our room had great views of the River, Lake Michigan and city--just incredible. The staff is outstanding from the front door to housekeeping. Loved it!
