This was our first hotel on our drive across route 66. We were welcomed warmly and were upgraded to a junior suite immediately. It was very comfortable and situated centrally close to Wrigley field, Lincoln park etc... and although we only had one night in Chicago, we would definitely come back if were to have an extended stay. Only drawback... More

I've been to and reviewed Hotel Lincoln several times. But it seems I can't visit and enjoy the people and place without saying something about it. It is that great. So I'll write about the "new" things and refer you to my previous reviews for more. When you reserve your room at the Hotel Lincoln, you will get a confirmation... More

I arrived at the Lincoln Hotel on business travel at 10:30 p.m. after a very long day of canceled and rescheduled flights and a 7 a.m. meeting in the morning. To top things off, I was visibly pregnant at the time and hadn't been able to grab dinner as of yet. The attendant behind the desk took one look at... More

Loved our stay at the Lincoln Hotel. Room was great with a nice view; loved the roof top bar, the coffee shop, the restaurant. Funky yet quaint. Highly recommend it. Location is great with easy access to the lake. They had bicycles for us to borrow for a ride along the lakeshore.

Once again thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Hotel Lincoln. Was greeted upon arrival with a friendly smile and Welcome. I have stayed here several times so know some of the front desk staff by first name, like Glenn and Edgar. The area outside the hotel is comfortable and one can find all kinds of amenities within a short walk. Had... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in July 2015. The hotel is pretty trendy and decorated very nicely. The service at the front desk was really good. One of the highlights of this place is the rooftop bar where you can get a pretty good view of the City and a great view of the Park and... More

Nice Hotel. Did have to ask to move rooms as I paid top dollar and on arrival was put into very small room without window views as stated on booking. They did up grade my room 2 days in my 5 day stay. Over all very nice stay. Area is very expensive and no laundry matt within 10 klms.

Very nice, but very old and very expensive. Good location for visiting Lincoln Park or Old Town. Wonderful view overlooking park and Lake Michigan, if you're willing to pay for it. First stayed 40 years ago when, I think, it was a Days Inn. Much nicer now.

This hotel is across the street from Lincoln Park. Taxis are plentiful. Our mini suite overlooked the park and beyond to the lake. It is a very quiet hotel, though we enjoyed the fun energy in the lobby at night with people going to the roof top bar and street level restaurant. We never heard our neighbors, doors or elevators..five... More

Staying in Lincoln Park

Neighborhood Profile
Lincoln Park
Head to the North Side of Chicago for a stroll through one of the city’s greenest neighborhoods. Lincoln Park boasts over 1200 acres of green space complete with a free zoo open to visitors year-round. This pedestrian-friendly neighborhood is lined with parks, row homes, boutiques, taverns, and nature. Lincoln Park itself borders the lakefront area offering peaceful views of the water and the Chicago skyline. The Lincoln Park Conservatory is one of the most popular attractions in the area, with the Chicago History Museum a close second. Armitage Avenue is where you’ll find great shopping from high-end retailers and small boutiques, whereas Clark Street houses cafes and restaurants. For more highbrow entertainment, walk along Lincoln Avenue to find some of Chicago’s finer museums and theaters.
