First stay in Chicago, and can't wait to return to Hotel Lincoln. Location is superb, and staff is friendly not phony. Food served for our meetings was incredibly fresh and authentic, so much so it reminded me more of Northern California that midwest. It was a refreshing change from the barbecue/homestyle cooking that dominated the area. Room was a little... More

Well, Lincoln Park is a great Chicago nabe to spend time in and Hotel Lincoln is a solid place for such an outing. They have done a great job creating a totally new boutique experience here (I remember the predecessor, a Days Inn) Great touches in the room (B&W photos of Chicago, etc), outstanding lake views and just nice people...

I tend to like newer hotels but this one was very charming. We were upgraded to a family suite so we had two bathrooms, which was very cool. The rooms were large, fresh, clean, and fun. Staff was great. The location was good because it was a few blocks from the highest-volume Starbucks in the country and numerous restaurants.

My husband and I visited this hotel last winter and were so impressed that we wanted to return in the summer, and it was wonderful again! Glenn checked us in with a great welcome smile and it set the mood for our whole stay:) Check-in was fast and simple, our room was clean, and the view of the park was... More

Excellent service. Fabulous rooftop bar. Will definitely come back. Front desk personnel with Glenn and Edgar were awesome. Nice lobby bar with great service. Easy getting a cab to downtown. Right across the street is Lincoln Park and Lake Michigan.

Stayed here last February and it was exceptional, especially at winter discount rates. A funky boutique hotel, with staff to match, right between Old Town and Lincoln Park. Put on your best comfy shoes and walk everywhere! This time it was mid-July and the stay was just as great as the first time. Walking through the zoo and park across... More

We had a really nice experience staying at Hotel Lincoln. The location was perfect for our visit to the northern Chicago area. The lake shore beach and a beautiful park area are right across the street. The neighborhood is filled with lovely brownstone apartments on tree lined streets. There are a variety of eating establishments and shops within walking distance.... More

We knew our check-in would be weird because we had two separate reservations for two days total for the same room type and were completely prepared to check out and back in half way through. However, Fabian put us at ease, and took care of everything. The room was awesome, we had a queen jr. suite. The food & service... More

We were visiting our son in Chicago on my birthday and he put us up at the Hotel Lincoln for 2 nights. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. When we arrived we had flowers and champagne in our room. The view from our suite was breathtaking! You could see parts of downtown from one window and a... 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
