We stayed three nights during the holidays. We loved the neighborhood. The hotel staff was VERY accommodating. We had two rooms;they were clean. Morgan the manager is great. All of our requests were met with a yes and a smile. We intend to go back this summer because we think it will be great to be so close to everything... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a night in Lincoln Park for our six year anniversary and he couldn't have picked a more perfect place to stay. We stayed on the seventh floor and had a lovely view of the Lincoln Park Zoo and the lake. The zoo is free and it was a wonderful activity to do, especially since it... More

I was in for a Holiday party that was a few blocks away from the hotel and I really enjoyed the area and the hotel. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the hotel was nice and clean, as was my room. Loved going up to the rooftop bar, even in winter it had a good view. I... More

On most trips, odds are you will run into at least one hotel staff member who can't hide the fact they are having a bad day. Hotel Lincoln defied those odds. We stayed two nights and spent some time in the lobby and every single staff member greeted guests with a genuine smile, welcomed people entering, and went above and... More

I stayed here while in town for a job interview and found it absolutely charming. Front-desk service was friendly and fast. Hotel features lots of unique Chicago-centric charm and situated in adorable Lincoln Park, an upscale walkable neighborhood just north of downtown Chicago. Steps to Lincoln Park, Lincoln Park Zoo, and great neighborhood restaurants like Bricks Pizza. Hotel also features... More

This is a shabby chic hotel which may not be what you want. But believe me it's immaculatly clean. Rooms were cleaned and fresh towels were left every day. It's just over the road from Lincoln Park Zoo which is a must to see. No I'm not a fan of zoos but after talking to the people who look after... More

Im staying at the Hotel right now and I have to say its one of the best. Its pretty cool in Chicago mid December but having a great resturant and seperatly a great coffee shop on site was really awesome. The lobby and rooms are very hip. The interior designer nailed it! The staff are some of the most friendly... More

We had the Junior Suite on the 11th floor. It was about 380 SF, with a king bed, large sofa bed, desk, and easy chair. There were 2 small bathrooms and 2 separate heating controls, so that I assume it was a combination of 2 smaller rooms. It was comfortable, quiet, and with a good view of the area. The... More

Stayed at Hotel Lincoln for about the 10th time -- and this might have been the best experience ever. Special thanks to Glenn and the very kind staff at the Hotel Lincoln. I travel for business here often for work, and everyone from the office just loves this place. You arrive, you check-in, and you're in your room on wifi... More
