I have stayed at many hotels in the downtown area of Chicago but I have now found a better place to stay when in town without the hassle of dealing with the big city when I am ready to relax.Reservations did an awesome job of taking care of my special requests and gave me a quiet room with a Great...

Hotel Lincoln is a small hotel right across from Lincoln Park. The Farmer's Market is right across street,the zoo and the botanical gardens just a quick walk away. Great running and walking in the park and lots of interesting things to see-archetecture,shopping,etc. in the Old Town area. Also plenty of good food to be found. The Hotel Lincoln has a... More

I give this hotel an excellent rating due to the absolute friendliness of the staff; it was great! The rooftop bar was pricey, but well worth it. Enjoyed our stay there immensely....the carpets could be updated, though.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Hip and fun location. Rooms are a tad small but adequate. Probably best for couples. Awesome coffee shop downstairs. Price was good for being walking distance to the Magnificent Mile. (About 30min walk / 5 min cab ride) We got the room for 104/night. Parking was fairly easy. There is valet but we self... More

We wanted to stay near Lincoln Park so we could jog every morning. Hotel Lincoln has the PERFECT location. Beautiful park RIGHT ACROSS the street. Easy walk to downtown. We arrived late due to a flight cancellation. Even at 3am, the hotel staff was warm and welcoming. Our room was adorable. It had plenty of space and an AMAZING view... More

I stayed at this Hotel in April. The staff were extremely helpful and polite. The rooftop bar was fun. The room itself was adequate but not quite worth the amount of money it cost. The view was not that spectacular. During the night the bathroom above me sprang a leak and was leaking through the ceiling into my bedroom as... More

Decided to stay overnight to attend a friend's birthday party and scored a great deal on the Hotel Tonight app. Hotel staff was friendly during check in, even though we had received a discounted rate (some staff in some places will give you "discount" Friendliness depending on your discounted rate). Since the initial rate was so good, we did wind... More

Stayed here for 3 nights for a business meeting. Was not recognized as a JDV Club member at check in. Rooms are very small with the bathroom not having a shelf big enough to put much on it. Staff is very nice and the rooftop bar is a vibrant place (mostly for young locals. Location is residential and the park... More

This was a great find for my wife and I as we visited Chicago. The location adjacent to Lincoln Park was great but unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate for morning strolls with dense fog off the lake during our stay. Nonetheless, this is a great hotel and I highly recommend it, The rooms are a little smaller than normal, but... More

We stayed at Hotel Lincoln for two nights in June, this was the first leg of our trip down Route 66. The staff at Hotel Lincoln made sure this would be a holiday to remember, and went above and beyond to look after us. I was retiring from the military after a long career in service, and having mentioned this... 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
