We stayed at Hotel Lincoln in late October 2013 and our suite was perfect. We enjoyed our upgrade to a park view room where we could watch the farmer’s market open on Saturday morning, and the walkers and runners throughout the day. The location was great. Easy to get to using the hotel's directions for mass transit from the airport, and once we were there the neighborhood was safe and walk-able to restaurants, the park, the zoo, and the family who we were there to visit. The staff was friendly and remembered to ask about our day when we returned after our outings - a nice touch. We did not eat in the restaurants, but did have some fries at the rooftop bar - I think we offended them by asking for ketchup rather that the "chef's special dipping sauce". Apparently they do not have ketchup up there. Really, fries need ketchup - would have been good to at least have the option. Hotel Lincoln was on the spendy side - typical for Chicago - but since we enjoyed the location and the accommodations so much we were OK with the price.
