Chicago’s most energized location, punctuated by a lightning bolt

theWit was built in the location considered to be the birthplace of Chicago.  It was revered throughout the American songbook as “State Street the great street” by international icon, Frank Sinatra. This very corner of State and Lake has become a true cultural crossroads, connecting many different communities—the Loop business area, Theater district, world class Michigan Avenue shopping, Millennium Park, River North art galleries and restaurants, the River Walk and Lake Michigan.   The 27-story, neon lightning bolt surging down theWit’s façade, signifies the sizzle of this location and the adventures that await.



Slickly designed, with a lightning bolt surging along the outer façade, theWit- A Doubletree By Hilton, offers unequalled access to fabulous theater palaces, high-end shopping, illustrious museums, gorgeous public spaces, and dynamic businesses. We're a new name in Chicago boutique hotels… luxurious, modern, and technologically advanced, yet boasting a playful sense of humor.
