Stayed at the Wit for a girls weekend. The location is ideal-in the loop but easy walking distance to Michigan Ave. shopping, Millenium Park, etc. Front desk staff was very attentive and friendly. Always greeted us on our return. And the cookies we got on arrival were great.
We stayed on the 12th floor, and like others, I was worried about proximity to the L. But at that level, it was barely noticeable. Great views of the skyline, and even a little peek at Lake Michigan from our window.
Super comfy beds, large and spacious rooms, great wi-fi access. Our room happened to have an accessible bathroom, so had a very wide, sliding type door into the bathroom and an accessible, walk in shower. I didn't request that kind of room but it was fine. Just think the door would be difficult to manage for anyone that did have physical challenges. Wonderful assortment of toiletries in the bath and great soaps. Limited counter space in the bath though-4 women had alot of toiletries and not much room for everything.
Should mention that the exercise facility was awesome-great views of the city and great equipment in a really nice work out setting. Did not have time to try the spa but it looked neat.
Probably not a hotel for kids-but for us it was fabulous!
