    Amazing spa rooms at affordable prices. Perfect location. Right beside the train, walking distance from everything. We had a beautiful city view with the Chicago theater right outside our floor to ceiling room windows. Great staff, great restaurant. 10/10. Our favorite of all the hotels we've stayed at.

    The location, design and style of the Wit were the strengths ofcthis hotel. The bartender was delightful and very helpful!

    Our room was not clean. It appeared that it had not been dusted. As we were packing to leave, I moved comforter away from edge of bed and found fruit/cherries on the floor. We did not have fruit during our stay.

    The room and service were amazing; Loved the rooftop bar, but wish the wait service had been more responsive. Overall, I would stay again.

    The food service was slow in both the restaurant and the rooftop. However, the food was delicious and the servers are friendly.

    I loved the birdsong / evening crickets sound that was piped into the bedroom corriders...it was like you were entered a secret world:-) The staff at the front desk were super friendly and went out of their way to recommend and book restaurants and to get us details on how to get to the outlet stores outside Chicago, supply us with train timetables etc for our journey. The doorstaff had a welcoming vibe too. The warm cookie upon arrival was delicious.

  • Group of friends

    The hotel was gorgeous and offered many amenities including three onsite restaurants, a rooftop bar, and an in-house spa. We received free breakfast from one of the hotel restaurants each morning because of our package through Booked.net. The staff was always courteous and pleasant. Someone greeted us every time we walked through the door. When we checked in they gave us warm chocolate chip cookies (a doubletree hallmark). It was truly a great experience!

    The hotel staff is extremely helpful and always make themselves available. The rooms are very well furnished and clean, modern.

    Asking guests to pay for internet at this kind of hotel is a bit cheap on their part.

  • Group of friends

    Rooms were big and spacious, on state street and walking distance to Michigan Avenue and very popular for their restaurants.

    Housekeeping were take time to clean the rooms, I would go out from morning and come back and the room was still not cleaned.

  • Single
    8.8

    The room was clean and interesting and the hotel well situated in the heart of things. Concierges were particularly accomodating. The rooftop lounge- to which guests get priority access seemed 'the' place to be at night

    The business centre ( internet access and printers) was painfully frigid and the computers not user friendly.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    contemporary design and comfort wise, this property achieves what many other attempt and fall short on. beer selection in off lobby bar was an excellent surprise, and the rooftop bar is without parallel in chicago new york and los angeles, and probably the rest of the land. an inimitable experience long to be remembered. BRAVO.

    there were a few inconveniences in that the maids entered our room at 8 a.m. on saturday morning, the check out clerk curtys was completely lost, tried to charge us for an extra night, and also for a bag of peanuts that we looked at never opened. the security gorillas are unnecessarily rude and heavy-handed, and should be redeployed to max security detail at joliet or cook county facilities.

  • Single
    8.2

    Staff were very polite and friendly, good recommendations from the concierge, very lively place, especially the roof bar.

    The fact that the staff always said they were fully booked and tried to put me into a lowest floor room despite my explicit wish to be higher up. One had to be really presistant.

  • Single
    10.0

    Hotel was nicely decorated and had a great vibe. I stayed in a suite which had a kitchen minus the stove but was perfect for having some appetizers and drinks with friends before heading out to explore the city. I probably would only stay here for a special occasion just cause its very pricey. The hotel has a great roof top bar and awesome lounge area. On the weekends the lounge is a club scene with young hip people that like to dance and have some good drinks. Great place to go with friends and have a great time.

    Great Customer Service. Was extremely delighted to find a complimentary bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries upon our arrival. We were celebrating our honeymoon so it was a pleasant surprise!!! Much appreciated.

    Perfect location in the City! Very good service when we asked for tips regarding restaurants (but if it's a Saturday night, make sure to book in advance, to do it on the Saturday was quite late...). Very cool top roof bar!
