ECD’s Chicago development, theWit Hotel, is located on historic State Street — in the heart of the revitalized theater and Loop business districts. Offering breathtaking views of the Chicago River, the skyline, and Millennium Park, theWit Hotel is located only steps from the City’s premier museums, cultural landmarks, and entertainment destinations as well as the dynamic central business district in the Loop.
theWit hotel is not just an unparralled hospitality experience but truly an innovation in real estate- featuring 2 critically acclaimed restaurants, State and Lake & Cibo Matto; ROOF, an exquisite indoor / outdoor rooftop lounge; 298 chic guestrooms and suites; SCREEN, a professional grade screening room; 7,000 square feet of dazzling meeting space; and Spa @ theWit , a full service spa and exercise room.
Created and masterminded by ECD’s President Scott D. Greenberg and carefully packed onto a 9,500 square foot parcel in the heart of the City, theWit’s design perfectly reflects the pulsing energy and vibrancy of the Windy City. This slickly designed 27 story structure, which features a signature lightning bolt surging along the outer glass facade, is considered a piece of architectural ingenuity and has quickly become Chicago’s premier downtown destination. Its convenient location offers unequalled access to fabulous theater palaces, high-end shopping, illustrious museums, gorgeous public spaces, and dynamic businesses.
Having opened in May of 2009, ECD’s theWit hotel has been met with critical acclaim on the local, national and international levels. While the New York Times calls theWit “the smartest new corporate hotel in ages!”, theWit is far from a typical corporate hotel. -Sunday New York Times, Check In/ Check Out Oct 4, 2009
Best described as luxurious, modern, and technically advanced, the Chicago Tribune praises its design and energy declaring:
“there is something timeless-or at least fitting-about theWit’s design… few match this one for engaging and enlivening the urban scene”.
-The Chicago Tribune, Blair Kamin, Architecture Critic, “A Bolt of Urban Energy,” May 28, 2009
