I stayed at theWit with my girlfriend on New Year's Eve. Very good service by staff all-around. I never had to wait more than a moment to get help from someone in the lobby. Our room was on the 20th floor, a standard Luxury King room with the basic amenities offered by this hotel. We had a nice view of the city, and much to our surprise a sizable wedge view of a frozen Lake Michigan. I liked the room overall, very comfortable and the fixtures and components live up to what you're paying for. I'm big into modernity and this room definitely delivered that. If you're big on watching TV, all rooms come with at least one 42 in. LCD HDTV, by far the best television viewing experience i've had in a standard room at a hotel. Channel lineup is pretty solid too. The negatives I experienced in this particular room was the shower head is on a rope which can be clipped to the bar. The head continued to slip down the bar and would not stay in place very easily. Also, my girlfriend found a condom wrapper in between the nightstand and the bed. I understand that it was something overlooked by housekeeping in an otherwise clean-looking room, but still... The hotel restaurants seemed a bit too high-priced for our budget so we avoided. Vending options were limited in the hotel as far as I could tell. You were limited to the mini bar in your room, $4 can of coke and $5 kit kats didn't seem too appetizing. Parking is valet only, and at $45 quite the premium for only a single-night's stay. Since it was New Year's Eve, party favors were given to us in our room, a nice touch. Included was a top hat, tiara, noise makers, glow sticks, and confetti. After it was all said and done, I would definitely recommend this establishment to a friend.
