I'm not quite sure how theWit fits into the Double Tree brand because it's unlike any Double Tree I've ever stayed out. The hotel has an honest modern/cool/hip vibe - it doesn't feel overdone and isn't trying too hard like some other hotels. The staff is extremely friendly and well polished and is what you'd expect to find at a 5 star hotel, but without the attitude.. The accommodations are simply fantastic.
I was traveling on business and checked-in on Valentine's day - there was a very nice note and a plate of heart shaped cookies waiting for me in my room. It's those small thoughtful details that sets this hotel apart.
Unfortunately for Double Tree, theWit sets expectations so high for the Double Tree brand that their other hotels just can't match
