During frequent spring trips to Chicago, we had always stayed at downtown hotels, either chains or one particular boutique hotel that had issues. This trip, we needed to stay further north. We decided on Hotel Lincoln because of the reviews on various rating sites, but also for its proximity to Lincoln Park and the zoo (right across the street). I felt as though we were transported to a hotel in Pleasantville! As we drove up, we were eagerly greeted by bellhops in plaid shirts and khakis. The females at the front desk, equally pleasant, wore blue polka-dot dresses. What could be more festive than that! The desk is fronted with dresser drawers. Rooms are small, but clean, adequate and have modern amenities. None of the staff appear to be over thirty! All were pleasant and enthusiastic. Even the pedi-cab driver jumped up to help manage luggage on our way out. This was also our first intro to a very walkable Old Town, with fun shops and restaurants to explore, many with outdoor seating. Next trip to Chicago,we definitey will stay here again!

- 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.
