The new Hotel Lincoln is a window to the most dynamic part of Chicago's North Side, Lincoln Park. Like the neighborhood, the hotel is historic yet fresh, fun though eccentric, active but relaxed. It's where the energy of urban life meets 1,200 green acres and Lake Michigan. All of which makes the Lincoln that unique place where the rhythms of a great city can be felt, savored and adopted as your own. The Lincoln's 184 rooms are classic Chicago seen through an eclectic, contemporary lens. They're on the preppy side, designed and furnished with modern and vintage details, including original art from local artists. Rooms on the highest floors - 9 through 12 - feature the hotel finest views, especially when facing east toward Lincoln Park and the lake.

Onsite parking $44.00 per night Offsite parking $25.00 per night

Very boutique!!

We had the junior suite which was very comfortable. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Definitely would recommend this hotel if you don't need to stay in downtown Chicago.

The Perennial Virant was excellent. Both good and service even though very pricey. If you are looking for a great farm to table restaurant this is the best choice. P

What a treat

For the price I paid for this hotel I was worried, but I almost couldn't have asked for more. My room was awesome; the whole hotel is very stylishly decorated and my room had a cool velvet couch that made lazy mornings/evenings very attractive. The staff at the desk and on the cleaning crew were all friendly, and the little coffee shop in the lobby was very nice. I didn't eat at the restaurant but it seemed to be doing a good business. Overall the whole place had a boutique atmosphere that made my stay feel special. The location is maybe a little odd for tourists; there are great bus connections though, and you don't have to go far to find interesting shops and restaurants. The only thing I didn't like was that there wasn't one of those "guest guide" books in the room; most amenities are not things I would want so badly to call down to the desk to ask about, but if I could look it up in the room I would.

Greer Chicago is a really neat little store selling cards and paper goods, right around the corner on Wells Street.

Cool place

The room was small which made me feel like I was in a European hotel. The location is excellent on the border between Lincoln Park & Old Town. The seven-block walk to the nearest "L" train station provided good exercise. The restaurant and roof-top bar are great!

ANNIVERSARY TRIP TO CHICAGO

THEY WERE SO HELPFUL AND SUPPORTIVE. WE REALLY ENJOYED OUR STAY. ROOMS WERE FANTASTIC. WE HAD JUST MENTIONED WE WERE FROM TEXAS AND IT WAS OUR ANNIVERSARY AND THEY HAD FLOWERS AND WINE AND A REFRIDGERATOR PLACED IN OUR ROOM. THEY JUST GO OUT ALL THE WAY FOR THERE CUSTOMERS. I WOULD DIFFENTELY STAY THERE AGAIN. CLOSE TO EVERYTHING. SUPER NICE HOTEL AND SUPER NICE PERSONAL.

DONT WASTE YOUR TIME ON RENTING A CAR. WE TOOK OURS BACK. EVERYTHING IS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OR YOU HAVE A BUS OR A TROLLEY. PARKING YOUR OWN CAR IS VERY VERY EXPENSIVE.

Nice intro to the Windy City

This hotel was wonderful as far as being close to the brown line and attractions. Walking for coffee in the AM and a drink in the PM was safe and pleasant. My only suggestion would be that they have : 1. outgoing mail for those wanting to send "snail mail" postcard we were told by the front desk staff they had none and 2. a hook in the bathroom to hang your clothes. AND 3. it would not hurt the front desk staff to say "hello" especially when you are staying 4 nights and are walking by 2-3 times a day. I know it is uber chick to not speak to paying guests but some are from out of state and find this very rude. Especially when guests say hello to you and get no response! Other than that we are sorry we will miss the roof top lounge but would travel here again!!

Buy a 3 day pass and use the train system. Brown line takes you down town and it is an easy change to get to airports. No need to rent a car. Safe even on weekends and after midnight!
