Each room has an iPad that allows you to order room service, make spa appointments and book dinner reservations without ever picking up the phone.

You can control the lights and curtains in the room with the push of a button on the VoIP touch-screen phone.

All of the guest room bathrooms have heated floors, and in the suites, toilets with motion-activated heated seats.

The rooms are outfitted with Control4 technology that detects when you enter the space. In other words, as soon as you step inside, the lights turn on, the temperature adjusts and the curtains open.

You can control the air conditioning, change up the music and review your room charges from the bedside touch-screen panel.

Push the room’s “Good Night” button to activate the “Do Not Disturb” signal outside your door. The same button will also switch off the lights and close the curtains.

theWit, Chicago

Room sensors automatically adjust heating and cooling based on body heat, so you never have to worry about being too hot or too cold.

Each of the guest rooms boasts a NEC VoIP phone with an LCD screen that displays flight info, valet requests and wake-up calls.
