Wonderful Location

Pros: The Concierge was amazing, best ever at finding tickets. During our 5 day visit we saw a White Sox game, a Cubs game, and a Bears football game.
Cons: Could use a few more outlets to charge the ever growing need for electronics that families have. The bathroom sink was shallow and water splashed arou
Location: It may be the best location to see everything in the entire town. No car needed easy to get donuts and breakfast. 7-11 and Walgreens
Wonderful location to see Chicago. We stayed for 5 days in August and were very comfortable which says a lot for a family of 4 - 2 of which are teenagers. Rooms must be well insulated- we couldn't hear any noise from inside or out once in our room. It's right across the street from the major train line but on the 12th floor we couldn't hear any of them.

Nice Hotel

Cons: No free Internet
Stayed for one night on business. I found the hotel to be worthy of its rating: clean, quiet, upscale, convenient and friendly & responsive staff. It was on the expensive side and did not include free wireless Internet.

Great Hotel

Pros: Close restaurants, friendly staff
Cons: No free Internet
I loved my weekend stay at theWit. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's close to the Chicago Theatre which is why I chose to stay there and ended up not wanting to leave! And it is true, they give you a warm and delicious chocolate chip cookie upon arrival.

Great location, great hotel, knowledgable staff

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
I did not know what to expect when I got to the hotel . Since the hotel was new, and figured the staff to be new as well. To my surprise the hotel was impecable to every detail. From the knowledgable Concierge whom directed us to the best places to eat and hang out, to the front desk with their prompt and detailed check in. The rooftop bar was amazing, along to retireing at night with the sounds of birds chirping in the hall way...(How do they do that?) Anyhow, I had such a great stay , that I recommended 3 other friends of mine that booked the same hotel...Great job in the service, the presentation and the comfort....may I add...the hotel has quaint bar downstairs that the bartenders were also like concierge and recommending great places to eat and go...Great job guys...next time I come to Chicago....expect me!!!
