We came because my son was doing a week at Second City. The hotel staff including Glenn were so very nice and accommodating , I didn't want to leave.The hotel is right across from the lake and Old Town is only a brief walk! Going back in the summer, and I will definitely stay once again-hands-down! We rented a condo... More

The staff was so kind and attentive to us from every part of the hotel: from the room service to the bar to the restaurant, we felt taken care of and cared for our entire stay.

I was new to Chicago and decided to stay at Hotel Lincoln... What a great place for my first trip! Right across from Lincoln Park and the Zoo and with a beautiful view of Lake Michigan from the rooftop bar as well as my hotel room! I absolutely adored the vibe of this hotel!

My husband and I checked in to a king bed junior suite with a lake view and my adult daughter came and stayed on the fold out couch and it was wonderful. Plenty of room and two full bathrooms. Excellent service and the bar downstairs has fabulous drinks-the Red Dawn is awesome. Desk service is very very friendly. Very close... More

Everything about the hotel was fabulous, especially the staff! When I called to get information about the property I got into a conversation with Alyssa of guest services. I had told her my daughter and I were visiting so she could make a final decision on whether or not to attend the Theater School of DePaul. Alyssa was very informative... More

The sofa was not particularly comfortable for his 6'2"... More

Hotel Lincoln is big on personality and has a great location. My daughter and I loved it there. The only problems we had was that the bathroom does not have a door that closes in the conventional sense, so you could hear bathroom noises a bit too clearly. I had the best shower of my life there.

My wife and I had the most delightful five-night stay (3/15/15-3/20/15) at the Hotel Lincoln in Chicago. Super location. Charming. Comfortable. Yet (very) reasonably priced. We are from Mill Valley, CA (near San Francisco). With the help of Annaliese, the hotel’s reservations person, we reserved three Hotel Lincoln rooms: A one-bedroom suite. A Jr. Suite. And one single room. The... 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.
