It took me a few minutes to figure out they were all wearing red checkered shirts (cool look!), but what really mattered most was that they all were so friendly, immediately helpful, and all seemed to work together so well. My room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. I travel frequently and I infrequently sleep well. Seriously, the bed... More

This place is amazing. I grew up in the Lincoln Park area and remember this hotel as just an old, run-down place. I needed to return to the area to visit my dad who is not doing too well and looked on-line for hotels in the area. When I saw the Hotel Lincoln's site I felt it too good to... More

Very helpful, friendly staff, kitschy decor in lobby, great locale, comfortable room. They upgraded us to a king suite with 2 bathrooms, which was great for 3 women staying together! It was across the street from Lincoln Park and walking distance to the zoo, the conservatory, Second City, and Lake Michigan. It was a short taxi ride to the Navy... More

this was our first stay at this hotel and we were pleasantly surprised by the personal service, size of the room, and overall comfortable feel of the hotel the elevators do seem a little slow, but that is our only complaint highly recommend

Hotel Lincoln's staff was discrete and on the ball, even when the lobby was swarming with incoming guests and visitors. Our room was kept CLEAN. Top-notch bar, restaurant and coffee bar. A place where gen-x-ers feel can feel at home alongside hipsters and boomers. We look forward to a return stay.

Glenn gave us a delightful welcome to the hotel - he really made an excellent first impression. The boutique hotel had lovely services, smallish rooms, and a great location near Old Town. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I usually stay in the Loop but my daughter moved to Lincoln Park so we decided to try the Hotel Lincoln. Our room was overlooking the park and Lake Michigan. The view was amazing! I loved how they renovated the old building and made it ultra clean and modern with a fun design flair. Very hip and stylish. On wednesday... More

This hotel had the most wonderful front desk staff! They called shortly after we checked in to make sure that everything was good in our room and offered excellent suggestion for out of towners like ourselves who had no idea where we going.The rooftop had a beautiful view! We will definitely be staying here again! Thanks Hotel Lincoln!:)

The hotel was located across the street from Lincoln Park and near many great restaurants. Downtown Chicago was only a $12.00 cab ride away. Staff were very friendly and helpful! I would definitely stay there again.

This hotel has great restaurants, a cool rooftop bar, fun rooms, and slow elevators! We loved our five nights at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The one downside was the internet did not work in our room for the majority of the stay - this normally wouldn't be an issue but I was working on an... 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
