Somebody forgot to tell this Hilton Doubletree hotel that it is, in fact, a Hilton Doubletree and not a rowdy cousin of the W Hotel. theWit is a funky, cool hotel that is perfect for the bachelor party kicking it in the Windy City. It’s got the cool vibe of a boutique property, yet awesome amenities and customer service like the big national brands. The decor will make you think you are in Miami, the party scene will make you think you are in Los Angeles, and the rooms will make you think you are in a place cooler than a Doubletree. Add to that the talent drawn to the hotel to visit their ROOF - for which you get bracelets just for staying here - and this can be the ideal bachelor party base.
Ask for a corner "spa" room - it has a bigger bathroom with tub and shower.
Best Feature: ROOF, the rockin’ 27th floor indoor/outdoor lounge. Guests of the hotel get entry wristbands so don’t forget to claim yours.
Vibe: Like “Sweetness” Walter Payton - pretty, smooth, a classic.
Good Place to Party?: Definitely. theWit is a destination unto itself so if you don’t feel like hitting the clubs, just hit the ROOF.
