Located on a relatively quiet stretch of Streeterville, Dewitt Place is not so much a hotel as it is short-term housing that’s oftentimes more convenient for travelers. Hey, if the shoe fits, wear it. Sometimes business travelers need somewhere to post up for a semi-extended amount of time, so Dewitt Place can feel more homely than a normal hotel. Part of the reason is the in-and-out setup and part-time front-desk hours.
The location is also very convenient, considering Dewitt place is just a skip and a hop away from shopping on Michigan Avenue and Water Tower Place, as well as the latter’s mega food-court, Foodlife. The Museum of Contemporary Art is down the street, and nearby Oak Street Beach is a must-visit in the warmer months.

I didn't like the vibe at the Dewitt Place. The studio apartment was small and looked clean enough, but had a weird smell that really turned me off. I did like the wood floors and the windows, which made the rooms feel bright and airy. On the upside, it's in a really good location, super close to attractions like the American Girl store and the Hancock building.

The Dewitt is an extended stay hotel. The rooms are studio apartments with full kitchens and you leave your hanger on the door when you want the staff to tidy up instead of when you don't. For the most part, they leave you alone.
They are near the top of Michigan Ave (the Magnificent Mile) and a block from Lake Michigan. Lake Shore Park with tennis courts, a baseball diamond, and a running track is two block away (right behind the Museum of Contemporary Art).

Nestled away on a quiet corner in the Gold Coast neighborhood, Dewitt Place is a great place to check out when you're looking for an extended stay in Chicago. The corporate housing building offers fully furnished studios and one bedroom apartments and the amount of time you can stay is very flexible. You're right down the street from the Hancock Tower and the rest of the fun sights of Michigan Avenue with countless options for restaurants and shopping.
The fitness center is pretty tiny, but there is a sauna and steam shower. The staff is extremely friendly and you can request maid service if you want! It definitely feels more like an apartment than a hotel with full kitchens in every room, which is ideal for longer stays.

DeWitt Place is a long term stay hotel – meaning the rooms are more like studio apartments than standard hotel rooms. There’s a full kitchen – oven, stove, microwave, toaster, refrigerator – next to a sitting area, next to the bed. It’s more spacious than it sounds written down. The staff is very nice, notably nice, willing to help you get anything you might need any time. There’s a fitness center, and they’ll tell you where to go to get to a pool. DeWitt Place is tucked in a quiet corner of downtown, but it’s still seconds away from the Mag Mile and all the fun touristy stuff that comes with it. It’s on the same street as Water Tower place, within walking distance of countless restaurants. And if you drove, you might - might ! - be lucky enough to get street parking.

DeWitt Place pairs location with personalized service and guest independence. While DeWitt’s focus is on extended stay visits for executives and business travelers, guests can chose to stay for as little as one night. The building’s location -- one block from Lake Michigan, two blocks from the famous Magnificent Mile shopping district, and several blocks from multiple public transit options -- makes it perfect for business or leisure travelers. The style of service at DeWitt may not be for everyone, as the front desk has limited hours. However, for travelers that enjoy independence, simply entering the building with an access code will contribute an apartment-like feel to the visit. Rooms are clean and comfortable and include full kitchens. DeWitt Place undoubtedly provides an alternative to over-priced boutiques and chains found in expensive districts of Chicago. It also offers a refreshing departure from the often mundane business travel experience.
