We spent two nights at the newly opened Hotel Lincoln last weekend. Fantastic location. Splendid views of Lake Michigan. Outstanding staff. Mediocre rooms in a terrible building. The renovation tries, but sadly fails. The rooms are teeny (cannot imagine two people trying to spend more than a night or two there), the bathrooms are border line unusable (no place to set anything down and no towel hooks - we hung wet towels on the flat screen TV). Worst is there is no insulation between the rooms (was an old apt building). We were awakened by our neighbors TV at 2 am one night (called front desk and they asked the poor person to turn down the volume) and a baby screaming the second morning. By the time we left we were EXHAUSTED. For the price point I would not choose this hotel again. We have stayed at many hotels in Chicago area and it makes no sense to settle on Hotel Lincoln.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 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. ... more less
