theLocation

The corner of State and Lake is one of historical significance in Chicago as the epicenter of “State Street, that Great Street,” made famous by Frank Sinatra.  Since then, this corner has evolved into a true cultural crossroads, the convergence of the business “Loop,” Theater District, Magnificent Mile, River Walk and Millennium Park.  Guests of theWit are merely a few city blocks from all of these great areas, shopping and attractions.  theWit is also easily accessed by the Blue Line and Orange Line CTA trains for out-of-town guests flying in from either Chicago O’Hare International or Chicago Midway International Airports. 

 

Built in 2009, theWit is one of the most stunning examples of new architecture in the area, punctuated by a 27-story glass neon yellow lightning bolt surging down its side.  The exterior and interior design both contemplate the creativity, diversity and excitement of the area.  As a four-diamond property, theWit – A DoubleTree by Hilton – delivers  superior service and all of the amenities of a resort, condensed into a boutique hotel.   Guests delight in the full-service Spa@theWit, SCREEN, a multimedia theater as well as State and Lake Chicago Tavern and the world-famous ROOF lounge on the 27th floor featuring panoramic views of the city.

 

“Your staff did a phenomenal job. Anytime in the future that we need to 'wow' clients, we will undoubtedly think of and go to ROOF on theWit.” –E.S., event planner
