Comfortable stay just a train ride away! I live 10 miles west of the city, right off the Green Line. Excellent location for my conference. Comfortable accommodations. No fuss, no muss. Would stay again.

Excellent hotel and staff, I would stay there again and recommend it to anyone. The staff went out of their way to help us and the Guest Services Manager made sure we had everything we needed. The hotel is so convenient to everything from attractions and shopping to restaurants. No need for a car, transit is steps from the door; cabs, busses, the L and subway. Collapse

Our first time to Chicago, the Wit was a very nice hotel. Not like your regular chain of Hilton DoubleTree’s! Located in the theatre district with great shops in walking distance and 2 blocks from the river walk. The folks at the Wit went out of their way to make our stay outstanding! We will go stay again..definitely. The soft sounds of birds singing can be heard through the hallways. Very different, and pleasant. Collapse

My wife and I had a wonderful time staying at the Wit! Prior to our arrival we worked with Eric L., a guest relations manager, and were absolutely blown away by his level of service. He took special care to ensure our entire stay was perfect, this includes our experiences outside of the hotel as well. Even before we stepped foot on the property Eric emailed me to find out what we had planned for the weekend. Once I informed him I had planned to surprise my wife with tickets to the Goodman Theater performance of A Christmas Carol along with dinner he sprang into action. Not only did he go the extra mile to ensure we had VIP treatment at the Goodman, but he helped us with dinner reservations at the time we wanted, where we wanted. Amazing! Upon arrival, Eric met us in the lobby and gave us a five star check in experience. He was extremely courteous and collaborated with a bellman immediately to help us with bags and coats. At the register he handed us each a cookie and began orchestrating the PERFECT hotel stay and weekend. He noticed that my wife and I were beyond hungry and after our bags were placed in the room, he brought six different menus from nearby restaurants. This is when we learned that Eric is an ALL-STAR pitchman, honestly, he should have his own show on the Travel Channel or Food Network and talk about local dining experiences. He is a master of the menu, restaurant ambiance, and (believe it or not) individual Chef information. He delivered the information in a way that made us forget about being hungry and we became excited just to visit his recommended locations! Eric took this experience a step further and noticed that we reacted to a certain menu item at a certain restaurant and anticipated our interest in going there for dinner. He immediately offered to make a reservation but being the GENIUS he is, he knew there would be a wait on a Friday evening. In response to this, he offered to make a table available for us at Roof for appetizers and drinks while we waited for our reservation. Amazing! He proceeded to give us a tour of the room pointing out features and handed us a complimentary bottle of water which certainly hit the spot. This is only a sliver of how amazing our experience was and a glimpse into the incredible fantastic service we received from Eric. He really embodies the true essence of what hospitality should be and truly cares about the experiences of his guests. We cannot say enough positive things about Eric, the Wit, and other staff who worked with us during our stay. My wife and I are now planning to make this a bi-annual trip to stay at the Wit and hopefully work with Eric again in the future! Thanks Eric!!! Collapse

My wife and I stayed at the The Wit for the weekend. Location is perfect. The are lots of things to do and see that are a short walk or cab ride. The restaurant downstairs has great food and roof top bar is a blast. The room were clean and nicely decorated. We booked the king spa room, which we enjoying the large tub and corner view of the Chicago river. For a hotel in Chicago I think it has great value. We will be back. Collapse
