I’ve lived in Chicago for nearly a decade and I’ve stayed at several hotels on special occasions. Recently, I stayed at theWit Chicago for a night and it was the best hotel experience I’ve had in the city of Chicago. During the summers I go to the Roof at theWit on Sunday afternoons for the unique cocktails, views, and service so I already knew how beautiful the hotel is. It wasn’t until I stayed there that I was able to enjoy the full Wit experience.
Upon arrival, guests are greeted outside the hotel by the concierge and escorted in to the lobby to check in. While checking in, guests are offered a fresh, warm cookie to enjoy. After checking in we were brought to our room where the concierge answered any questions we had. The staff was very welcoming and made us feel like VIP’s. They were very knowledgeable and seemed like they wanted us to experience Chicago as much as we could and not just their hotel.
Our room was beautiful with a great view of the Chicago River. We even ate breakfast by the window the next morning. For even better views, head up to the Roof at theWit for cocktails and/or a bite to eat. The atmosphere is great and one of my favorite rooftops in the Chicago. Our room had a lot of little touches that I personally enjoyed; pillows that said “Sweet Dreams,” unique art in the room, plenty of space, and the kind of travel size toiletries that you want to take home if you don’t use them all.
Is It For You? This hotel is for you if:
- You are all about location. TheWit is in walking distance of many of the best Chicago tourist attractions like Millennium Park, Grant Park, Chicago River tours, the Art Institute, Hancock, Willis Tower, Navy Pier, Michigan Avenue, Water Tower Place, Field Museum, Shed Aquarium, House of Blues, and much more. More than just the tourist attractions are some of my favorite restaurants in Chicago like Rockit Chicago, Hub 51 (get the chicken nachos), Tavern on Rush, Public House, M Burger, Osteria, Joe’s Stone Crab and Seafood, and Chicago deep dish pizzeria Lou Malnati’s.
- You are all about the view. The view from the roof top, service, food, and specialty cocktails make it a VIP experience.
