Finding time to get away from it all can be a challenge when one works Monday through Friday or once the school year begins. Leisure trips can be far and few between, especially with football season and extracurricular activities. Every once in a while, though, a weekend opens up and screams “run away and get out of town!”
But where can one go?
A great idea when one is indecisive on the travel front is to take out a map and draw a circle representing a two to three hour drive radius. Keep in a drawer handy for moments like this. Or, keep an eye out on airfare special and even consider taking the train.
A fun destination for a weekend getaway is Chicago and TravelingMamas.com has discovered a swanky, hip spot for excitement and luxury in a quick trip. On N. State Street, theWit Chicago, a Doubletree Hotel, is conveniently located in downtown. It not only offers a fantastic location for guests, but also provides quiet and relaxation when needed. The “devil is in the details” and theWit definitely entices with those special touches a discerning traveler would notice, along with just enough sparkle and color to impress any generation.
Here’s a video introduction of what an evening at theWit can be like:
But what is theWit REALLY like? It’s cozy, it’s comfortable, it’s hip, it’s fabulous. Evenings can be spent at the rooftop bar ROOF. Mornings bring a Mimosa and Bloody Mary bar at State & Lake Chicago Tavern. There’s even an intimate spa offering Whisper Rooms blocking out noise and providing a peaceful respite from the constant energy of the city. It is also the only building in the city to offer a 27 story lightening bolt built into the facade of the structure.
theWit Chicago is a full sensory experience that is stylish and expressive. The boutique feel is more memorable than a cookie-cutter hotel experience. But speaking of cookies, since it is a Doubletree, guests still get that signature warm Doubletree cookie at check in.
Overall theWit is the perfect base for that Chicago experience, whether a romantic weekend getaway, quick family trip, girlfriend escape, or even the business traveler. It’s close to gourmet restaurants, iconic Chicago attractions, and the concierge can even assist with planning unique activities during a stay.
