Overall, great hotel. Very cool room with 2 bathrooms and eclectic furnishings like a full length mirror with bright red frame. Upscale toiletries and super soft bath mats. Free bicycles you can use to go ride the path along the lake just across the street. Lincoln Park neighborhood is very nice, staying up here at least one night during a... More

Small room, very nice employees-brought our dog and he had a great time. Great park across the street, and lake a block away. Many restaurants and great for walking, jogging. Hotel room very small but good view.

We recently stayed at Hotel Lincoln. The staff was very good and the location was great, easy to visit the free zoo and convenient for getting around. Unfortunately our room was quite small (one queen bed) and really barely enough space for two people. I would definitely recommend against a standard room. Really check out the sizes before you reserve.... More

Living in the far suburbs, we like to explore Chicago by staying overnight downtown. We'll never do overcrowded Michigan Avenue again. Hotel Lincoln was just what we needed. Quiet, kinda quirky, with a fabulous rooftop bar, award winning restaurant, and a stellar room, too. Very friendly front desk and valet, and the locale couldn't be better. Walking distance to our...

Stayed for a long weekend, room was clean, comfortable and the staff very amenable. Great location, put us near every restaraunt and bar we had lined up already. Rapid access to either cabs or Uber. Great for a weekend of eating and drinking. The rooftop bar was pretty cool too.

Nice indoor / outdoor rooftop bar. Very eclectic, chic, lobby and bar... but extremely small room and bathroom. Older but refurbished building. Did not eat in lobby restaurant, but was a very good farm to table type concept, room service was quick and not overly expensive.

Awesome hotel in Lincoln Park! Very helpful staff - rooftop bar with magnificent views of Chicago! Close to the Zoo and great restaurants - excellent location. Must check out the artwork going up to the second floor lounge.

This hotel is a nice place to stay while in Chicago. The rooms were nice, but a little on the small side. The location was perfect for us, as it was 1-1.5 miles from magnificent mile and all those restaurants in one direction and 1-1.5 miles from the blues music area and wrigley field. Also right across the street is... More

We stayed at the Hotel Lincoln this past weekend. Loved it. Perfect location. Very helpful staff. Had a slight problem and needed to be in a handicap accessible room. Hotel staff was very helpful to make that change for us. The initial room was rather small for the money. Neighborhood was sorta loud late at night and early in the... More

Hotel Lincoln is always my first choice when visiting Chicago. This quaint hotel has a superb staff that exhibits exemplary customer service. Kudos to Glenn, Sarah, Joseph, Ben and Eric for your warm, friendly and caring ways which made my Dad's 85th birthday celebration so memorable. Our rooms were eclectically decorated with beautiful views of Lake Michigan and filled with... 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.
