House Rules


As part of our commitment to streamlining experiences at theWit, we have introduced a new cashless program. Going forward, we will no longer be accepting cash as a form of payment for hotel reservations. Instead, we will exclusively accept credit and debit cards for these transactions.

We will still continue to accept cash at ROOF, and State & Lake Chicago Tavern.


To ensure all guests have an enjoyable and safe experience, all guest floors are considered quiet zones and excessive noise is prohibited.  No more than four registered guests are permitted in each guest room at any time.  The hotel reserves the right to ask any guest in violation of this policy to leave the hotel, and guests may be subject to a fee.


For the comfort and safety of our guests, theWit Hotel is a 100% Smoke‐Free facility. Violation of this policy by use of cigarettes, smoking tobacco, marijuana, illegal drugs, e‐cigarettes, vape pens, vape or smoking cartridges of any kind, hookahs, incense, cigars or candle burning will result in a cleaning fee.  Additionally, theWit Hotel reserves the right to take action against any guest or visitor found to have tampered or interfered with any fire detection equipment throughout the hotel.


If rooms are damaged or left with a need for excessive cleaning, guests will be charged corresponding excessive cleaning fees.
