U.S. News Review

As its name suggests, theWit aims to entertain. The decor — with its bright colors and stained-glass windows — evokes an amusing feel, while stand-up comedy can often be heard over the speakers in the hallways and lobby. But it's no wonder why theWit tries so hard to get a rise out of you: Its perch on the end of the Theater District (next door to the Chicago Theater in the Loop) means that this hotel has some steep competition. But unlike the surrounding performance spaces, this DoubleTree-affiliated property has much more than jokes. Should you be a bigger fan of movies than stand-up, consider hosting a viewing party in the on-site movie theater. Or, guests recommend spending some time on the rooftop bar or in the hotel spa — both venues are bound to offer a good time. And the fun doesn't have to stop at bedtime: Guests love playful amenities like iPod docking stations and video game consoles (and games), which can be found in the Media and Entertainment guest rooms. Because this hotel falls into the Hilton profile, members of the Hilton HHonors rewards program can earn and redeem points here.
