About
Description
Located just north of Chicago’s downtown financial and retail hubs, Lincoln Park is the city’s most charming and historically rich residential community, where tree-lined streets are dotted with a mix of More million-dollar-plus homes and classic three-flat apartment buildings and sidewalks buzz with energy from families, DePaul University students, young professionals, fitness buffs, and visitors to the city. At the center of it all is Hotel Lincoln. Hotel Lincoln is an upscale boutique hotel with an eclectic-meets-collegial vibe, offering 184 guest rooms, executive meeting space, a lobby-level European-style coffee bar, a spacious rooftop lounge with panoramic views of downtown Chicago and Lake Michigan, and the acclaimed Perennial Virant – helmed by award-winning Chef Paul Virant. As Joie de Vivre’s first hotel east of the Mississippi, the property is uniquely designed to not only connect Chicagoans with iconic city gems, but also give travelers a taste of what life is really like in the packed-with-personality city.

Hotel was fine. But the "resort fee" which you don't hear about until you check in (where else are you going to go???) is thievery. $40 for water and internet access. They don't even have exercise facilities.

Great location across from Lincoln Park. Close to the lake. Best part was checking out the market across the street (Wednesday and Saturday). We ate breakfast at the market. Kid friendly hotel and location.

Just checked in. The room I booked (jr. suite, lake view) was apparently not available, due to an unspecified “maintenance issue.” Although “maintenance” was not mentioned when my spouse first checked in. Rather, the front desk attendant said they were putting us in a better...More
