I was really, REALLY unhappy with Hotel Lincoln. Reserved lake view room and got fire escape view room instead. They did give me a substantial credit and made it right. If you make your reservation on line you must call them and make sure it is Lakeview. I also recommend you call them a week before and then again two days or the day before, keep bugging them to make sure you are getting the room you ordered.
This is a great location, Zoo and Conservatory are easy walking distance, can bike ride the beach. The roof top bar, J Parker, is spectacular, thank you Angelo. The restaurant was also outstanding.
We would stay here again, but I would not trust them that I was getting the room I ordered until I saw it!
