We just returned from a trip to IL to see our son graduate from Navy bootcamp. We spent a couple of days in Chicago and stayed at the Hotel Lincoln. It was a crazy weekend with the Air and Water show going on, but exciting to be a part of the crowd. The hotel and staff was wonderful. Special thanks... More

I recently stayed here for 2 nights and my experience was enhanced by the great suggestions and generosity of the concierges. Any questions I had were immediately answered and their restaurant recommendations were great. The room was fine. It had a nice shower and a sweet view. Plus the bars and restaurants connected with the hotel are convenient. Public transportation... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. The room however was a problem. It was a warm humid day and so was the room. After complaining to the management they did move us to another room upgrade to a one bedroom suite. More room much better view but not much cooler. We did have three people we paid extra for three... More

Let me start by saying I liked Hotel Lincoln and would stay there again. But with a Trip Advisor (TA) customer rating of 4½* I do think it’s overrated. More on that later. First, the location is great, on the south end of Lincoln Park. The park itself is great for exercising, exploring or just plain relaxing. And if you’re... More

Hotel Lincoln is a great alternative to downtown Chicago hotels. Fun bohemian atmosphere with views of the park and Lake Michigan. I was upgraded to a lovely corner suite which was comfortable and well-furnished. Thank you to management for the tlc. Hope to return soon and enjoy the rooftop bar.

I stayed here for two nights with a friend while visiting Chicago in July. One of the great things about it is that there is a rooftop bar/restaurant where we had appetizers and drinks the night I arrived. There is also a coffee shop on the main floor that is delicious (get the cookies!). I liked how the employees are... More

Greeted warmly, at the reception desk, by Glenn. Smiling and helpful. On another day, he assisted by walking with me to show the location of a nearby restaurant. This is a really funky and delightful small hotel with a staff that personifies service and friendliness. When I asked for tea, it was delivered immediately. When my remote didn't work well,... More

We booked this hotel on a third party site for a Friday night. We needed a pet friendly hotel in the Lincoln Park area and we got Hotel Lincoln for a reasonable price. The only issue we had booking through a third party was not being able to select the room type in advance. There were 3 of us traveling... More

We really enjoyed our 1 night stay (and in hindsight wished we had spent the previous night here instead of the other hotel). It's a lively place (but not noisy). We liked the room decor. The place was clean. We did not check out the rooftop bar so I cannot comment on that. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at the Lincoln at the end of a business trip for 2 days. The staff was friendly and energetic. The hotel itself is an older building that has been renovated. Things that were great; the staff, the ambiance (a variety of guests, all ages, styles), onsite cafe and rooftop very hip bar with an awesome view of the city... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located just north of Chicago’s downtown financial and retail hubs, Lincoln Park is the city’s most charming and historically rich residential community, where tree-lined streets are dotted with a mix of million-dollar-plus homes and classic three-flat apartment buildings and sidewalks buzz with energy from families, DePaul University students, young professionals, fitness buffs, and visitors to the city. At the center of it all is Hotel Lincoln. Hotel Lincoln is an upscale boutique hotel with an eclectic-meets-collegial vibe, offering 184 guest rooms, executive meeting space, a lobby-level European-style coffee bar, a spacious rooftop lounge with panoramic views of downtown Chicago and Lake Michigan, and the acclaimed Perennial Virant – helmed by award-winning Chef Paul Virant. As Joie de Vivre’s first hotel east of the Mississippi, the property is uniquely designed to not only connect Chicagoans with iconic city gems, but also give travelers a taste of what life is really like in the packed-with-personality city. ... more   less
