Arrival Vibe- The guys were helpful enough. We checked in without any problems. We noted it was a bit quirky, different, it... More

Like some other reviews I have read, while my room was comfortable for one person, I don't see two people having enough room to share easily. Was also able to hear some noise from adjoining rooms. That bit of negativity aside, the location was exceptionally well-suited for my purposes. The location across the street from the park makes for a... More

Didn't quite know what to expect from Chicago. Hotel in a perfect place, directly opposite Lincoln Park - short 5 minute walk to Lincoln Zoo. Hotel staff were exceptional always available to help with questions on how to get to places and things to do. Reception area interesting and rooms not exceptional but more than adequate for our needs and... More

We chose this hotel due to its central location as we were taking in the Pearl Jam concert at Wrigley Field and also wanted to see some of the sights of Chicago. The reception is cool and different and this theme is extended throughout the whole hotel. The rooms are really stylish and clean and my only niggle is the... More

I spent a long weekend recently at this fabulous hotel. It was my first visit to Chicago. The hotel was perfectly located, across the street from Lincoln Park - where there was a great farmers market on Saturday, and beautiful walks at other times. Also at the edge of Old Town where there are many little cafes and restaurants and... More

Beats the heck out of chains. It has atmosphere character and amenities. Near Lincoln Park. Excellent public transit . The ambiance, decor , and location make this a great place to stay. Near Old Towne. Good restaurants, night clubs and Chicago Frank diners.

The Lincoln hotel is conveniently located to almost everywhere. It is ideal for academics planning a visit to Depaul University. The service was wonderful, and the facilities were clean. The lobby is a little small and dark, but maybe that's due to the ambience they want to create. The elevators took a little too long. Overall, I had a nice... More
