With a prime location like theWit’s—walkable to the Loop Theatre District, Michigan Avenue, the Chicago Riverwalk, and Loop El stations (double-glazed windows keep train rumbles at bay)—you’d expect something extraordinary. And that’s exactly what you get. From Jackie Koo’s striking white and glass façade with its startling yellow streak to the seriously modern 2-story glass lobby lit by custom-designed angel-wing chandeliers, theWit succeeds in both style and substance. The 298 rooms and 42 suites blend artistry and geometry with their neat lines and flashes of color. Suites feature fully equipped kitchens, while theSpa rooms indulge with large soaking tubs. Or take advantage of the high-end spa for massages and more. Then head up to 27th-floor all-weather ROOF, named one of the 10 best rooftop bars in the country by USAToday.com. The hotel expresses its own wit in wake-up calls recorded by The Second City actors mimicking famous Chicagoans such as Al Capone. Critically acclaimed Italian hot spot Cibo Matto gives guests a reason to stay in for dinner.
