    My husband and I held our wedding reception at the Wit hotel a few weeks ago. Brittney Epstein and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with. We had cocktail hour on their famous, "ROOF," bar and then held our dinner and dance in the Wilde ballroom (144 guests). The food were not only generous portions, but every filet was cooked to perfection. The staff kept the wine flowing and the dance floor was packed all night. We also had our brunch the next day on THE ROOF, which was a blast as well! Brittney's also helped book our florist, Studio AG, whose flower arrangements were beyond beautiful. From the time we checked in with Chris and were handed warm chocolate chip cookies, from the time we checked out, the staff know how to execute hospitality. We would do an event here again in a second!

    Where can I start? If you’re looking for the perfect venue for your wedding don’t hesitate to choose theWit. It’s not just because it’s a fun and beautiful venue, but everything about it is absolutely perfect. Brittney Epstein is the most amazing organizer you’ll ever meet. From the beginning we loved her and we knew she was going to make our wedding the best! We wanted to make a Venezuelan-American wedding and Brittney understood the concept from the very beginning. We wanted a non-traditional wedding, cocktail party style, with no sit-down dinner. Britney and the staff created a special menu to suit our dream wedding, and we have no words to describe it! Every bite was delicious, elegant and melted in your mouth. Even though it was such a different concept (small plates, passed apps and a couple of stations) we got so many compliments. Everyone described our wedding as the best wedding they’ve been to. We had a lot of fun that day and they made us feel like home with all the details and personalized gifts. I would recommend this venue without a doubt, and I hope we can work together again for future events.
    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    The Wit was spectacular! We planned the wedding while living out of town, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The hotel has very hip decorations and doesn't look like the typical stuffy hotel. Our guests were delighted by the views and the comfort in their rooms and in the event spaces. Because we had so many guests coming in from out of town, the location of the hotel next to the train stops was very convenient. Upon checking in, we were greeted by numerous employees asking us what they could do to help, and it made us feel like royalty. The day of the wedding, the hotel provided extra unplanned-for space to keep the bride and groom from seeing each other before the ceremony. Hotel staff continued checking in on the bridal suite on the wedding day to make sure everyone was happy, comfortable, and calm! The food was AMAZING. Our catering manager even arranged for several of the bridal party to go up to the rooftop bar and skip the line after the reception was over. Many kudos to our catering manager Paul and our event manager Brittney for providing such wonderful service.
