One of my favorite Hilton properties in Chicago. The Roof bar is fabulous!! Really enjoy the location in close proximity to Chicago Theater, great dining options and a short walk to either State Street or Michigan Ave shopping.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 April 2017 via mobile

I travel frequently and don't write many reviews because I often agree with what others have said. But TheWit is so special I just had to add my voice to the many. TheWit is modern and beautiful, the food in State and Lake was interesting and tasty, but it's the service that sets this hotel apart. Kit reached out with...

Dear Abriner3 Thank you so much for highlighting Kit and Eric's great service. Their commitment to guest service is amazing. I will make sure to let our chef, Nathan Sears, know how wonderful the food tasted. Nathan ran a Michel starred restaurant prior to joining us last fall. He has definitely taken our food offerings to the next level. We...

This is a clean, friendly, affordable hotel with a great location. The rooms are nice and is a great place for a business trip, with the family or a romantic get-a-way. Plus a warm cookie at check in :)

Excellent hotel, prime location, and service was impeccable. Clean and new, hip and cool, and the staff gave excellent advice and went above and beyond, adding to our entirely wonderful experience. I will absolutely stay again! I researched hotels heavily and it paid off.

This is such a professional and detail oriented establishment. This is truly a place where everyone knows your name. The staff really makes you feel special; as if you're family. We were so impressed with Eric, Omar, Ben, Bridget, Ashley, Markette, and not to mention, Jesus! The rooms were extremely clean, the restaurant/bar was phenomenal, centrally located in Downtown Chicago....

We held a family member's wedding here. The staff, service and facility were over-the-top in meeting our expectations. From the event planning through our stay and check out, we were treated like royalty.

I have always liked Hilton hotels. TheWit was a walking distance from the graduation location that we attended. It is a great location right in the middle of downtown Chicago, close to many attractions. We had lunch and it was delicious. Three of the restaurant staff kept asking us if we needed anything else and if all was well. The...

This is one of the best rooftop bars, however the wine menu is very limited, the service is more about nightclub and bottle service than a nice afternoon drink service. Did not try the food. They seem to be trying too hard to be swanky and exclusive and it falls short.

The staff was very helpful and went out of their way to assist in any way possible. The location is perfect as you can easily walk to the Riverwalk, Millennium Park, and the Art Institute of Chicago. The rooftop bar is an added bonus.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
