We had the good fortune to stay at this hotel the weekend of 6/27/15. The location is optimal given it's proximity to the Farmer's Market, Zoo and Lincoln Park neighborhood. The adjoining coffee shop offers great coffee/tea selections as well as really good breakfast scones/muffins. We had a fabulous brunch in the restaurant and again the food/mimosas were delicious, fresh... More

The Lincoln is a pretty happening hotel with lots of thoughtful extras, a nice rooftop bar, a great lobby and Lincoln Park nearby obviously. Use the city's rental bikes to get to everywhere, we loved it..

My daughter and I had a last minute trip to Chicago and a woman on the plane said: Stay at The Lincoln. We called while the plane taxied. The staff were delightful, fun, knowledgeable and inviting. The room was adorable, quiet and the beds super soft. We partied on the rooftop both nights and felt like family. The place to... More

But, if a good night sleep is what you're looking for, maybe not. Paper thin walls, interminably slow elevator and meat market rooftop lounge are what I remember. If I was a single person, who partied all night, this might be the place for me. This is my second stay at the hotel—the first time being 3 or 4 weeks... More

Everything was fantastic. Couldn't have asked for a better place for a quick Chicago weekend getaway! The hotel is in close proximity to downtown and to Wrigleyville and we walked or took a 5 minute cab everywhere we wanted to go!

I stayed at the hotel for several days for business. When I arrived at the hotel, I realized that I had lost my wallet and that I had no money to pay my taxi. The hotel manager loaned me the money to pay the taxi and did what he could to help me while I tried to get a new... More

First visit. Went early June 2015 for weekend getaway. I loved the staff, definitely made you feel personally welcome. My daughter and I had 2 Queen bed with lakeside view. Spectacular on the 10th floor. Lie in bed and see Lincoln Park, the beach, and the lake. Even had a Farmers Market in the park.. We had time to enjoy... More

A nice hotel with friendly staff. However although the room was nice, the walls are so thin. I could hear next door very clearly. This was my 3rd hotel I stayed in, in the USA on this trip and was the most disappointing. I also felt the bathroom was extremely small.

I stayed at this hotel for an overnight stay in June 2015. Great experience since its right across the Lincoln Park and the beach! The roof-top restaurant and bar was a perfect place to hang out! Friendly staff and the room was clean and well-maintained. Definitely plan to stay at this Hotel the next time I am in the Chicago... More

This is gem of a property. Very hip and wonderfully located right on Lincoln Park, just north of the Mag Mile. It is a vintage building so manage your expectations accordingly. If you are looking for a sleek, modern, glass & steel experience, this is NOT your choice. Instead, expect a neighborhood feel, but with an update, funky vibe. Don't... 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.

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.
