Forward-Thinking Downtown Chicago Meeting Facility

theWit offers the smartest 7,000 square foot facility for conferences, meetings and special events.

theWit is a warm and colorful experiential hotel with four-diamond service standards and distinctive culinary offerings for an unforgettable gathering in downtown Chicago.   Our spaces are built to inspire, amaze and energize guests in an inviting manner without pretention.

Event spaces feature 16-foot, floor-to-ceiling glass windows with sweeping views of State Street, the Loop and the Chicago River.  These naturally lit meeting rooms are named after some of the great “wits,” of our time, people who could turn complex thoughts into simple phrases with a touch of humor, including Oscar Wilde, Abraham Lincoln, Emily Dickinson and Winston Churchill. 

This energy and creative spirit has attracted an array of diverse clientele including major professional sports organizations and athletes, luxury car manufacturers, top technology and pharmaceutical companies, advertising, media companies and motion picture studios.

These discerning clients have described theWit as having “excellent customer service – you made my job easy,” and “I have seen components of your hotel in various hotels throughout the world, but never all under one roof.”
