This boutique hotel is located in the perfect location right between Lincoln Park and Old Town, on Lincoln Park and overlooking Lake Michigan. Just blocks from Michigan Avenue shopping, this hotel is a perfect place to call home while you're in the city. The decor is funky and unique, the linens and toiletries are superb, and the staff are amazing!... More

We stayed at the Hotel Lincoln for a Saturday night. The hotel is very quaint and very nice. The hotel staff were very friendly and pleasant. Check in was very fast, as was check out. The room was small but very nicely appointed, very comfortable and had an outstanding view of Lincoln Park and Lake Michigan. HVAC control could have... More

A great place to stay in Chicago, the reception staff are brilliant and go out of their way to help. While the rooms are not big they are very comfortable and kept exceptionally clean. The situation is great with a very regular and fast bus service into central chigago. A highlight of our trip to the US.

I travel to Chicago a lot, and this is my favourite hotel. The staff are particularly helpful, even letting me keep a bicycle behind reception on occasion. I'll let hipper people than I describe the scene in the roof bar, it's great. My one tip: take the stairs to the second floor and enjoy the art, all from local thrift... More

This was our second time at the Hotel Lincoln located in Old Town, and it is now our favorite place to stay in Chicago! The Jr. Suite is nice and the view of the lake is lovely, but it's the staff that made our stay memorable. Everyone is friendly and knowledgeable. We got some great advice from the front desk...

Located on the border of Lincoln Park and Old Town, Hotel Lincoln is a great option for those looking to stay away from the Loop and touristy Michigan Avenue corridor. I've been a regular visitor to the stunning rooftop bar the J Parker since it opened and recently spent 3 days and 2 nights as a guest in the hotel.... More

Nice little neat hotel with so many unique features. Loved the location, room was perfect, staff was extremely friendly. Loved the food at the meeting. Haven't said that very often, but there farm to table approach is very refreshing. Also visited the roof top bar, even though it was late and the kitchen was closed the waiter (forget her name)...

We recently spent a glorious weekend at Hotel Lincoln. The staff were very friendly and certainly made us feel special. Our Jr. Suite overlooking the lake was great. The hotel is different, did not feel like just another room. Enjoyed our morning walks through the zoo and coming back and enjoying coffee and scones in the lobby cafe. Weather was... More
