The loop’s newest hotel has arrived. Enter, theWit. This Double Tree Hotel is more then a place to stay, it’s an experience. Strategically placed in the theater district, theWit gives you easy access to extraordinary theater, high-end shopping, contemporary dining, culture, and business attractions. In a town that loves architecture, theWit’s quirky design is right at home. A lightening bolt on the façade and pops of color throughout the interior bring the hotel to life. This boutique hotel includes Roof, the rooftop bar, Screen, the hotel’s movie theater, cibo matto, an Italian restaurant, State and Lake, an American dining spot, and their own personal spa, Spa@theWit.

In addition to its luxurious accommodations, theWit prides itself on ensuring customers a playful and humorous stay. Between the celebrity impersonation wake up calls recorded by Chicago’s own Second City cast, hallways lined in witty artwork and Rubik’s Cubes on the pillows, in lieu of your traditional mints, theWit has an undeniable comedic flair that will make your hotel experience one to remember. – From Factio Magazine
