Being from Chicago, it's always nice to have a mini staycation then and again. We get to see our city with new eyes. This was our second stay with Hotel Lincoln and we continue to enjoy it. Our new friend Glenn was super helpful, friendly and went out of his way to make sure we had the best stay possible. I strongly recommend everyone in Chicago and those passing through to check out this unique, hip hotel in a fabulous very walk able neighborhood in Chicago! The staff at Hotel Lincoln deserve a very positive review!

What a great start to our Thanksgiving holiday. Lovely appointed room with fun art and a cheerful and polite staff. Highly recommend this delightfully young at heart hotel with free wi- fi.
Charming and interesting guests in the lobby including a well behaved Portuguese Water Dog.

Last week I stayed 4 nights at the Lincoln Hotel. Yes, its stylish, comfortable, classy, trendy, ecologically concerned, nicely located in a nice area of Chicago, worth the money you pay, etc. But I'd rather focus on the sympathy of their staff - especially Glenn, who went out of his way to check if I was ok with my room and found solutions for my several queries regarding the hotel and the city. Made me feel especially welcome in a relaxed environment. Unfortunately I was there for business (conference) reasons, so I couldn't explore the terrace and other amenities.

I rarely write hotel reviews, but thought this hotel and Glenn deserved a very positive one!

Room Tip: Corner suites are amazing, and quite big.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Lincoln this past weekend and everything was awesome-- the decor, the staff, the hotel restaurant, the hotel coffee shop, the rooftop bar...we loved it all. Great location too, right on/overlooking Lincoln Park. I highly recommend!

We loved our stay at this hotel. It was right across from Lincoln Park and the zoo. We just walked across the street and they had a big farmers market going on, a 5 K race, and lots of other things while we there. We went for a run every morning along the lake. It was so beautiful and relaxing there. And the hotel and staff were wonderful! Our rooms were nice and clean. Will definitely stay there again when we go back.

Room Tip: Facing the Lake

Great experience. Hotel staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Rooms are a little on the small side, if you are used to large motel chains, but clean and very nicely decorated. Beds, linens, pillows so comfy, and the room so quiet, we rested well every night. We chose a lake view room on the eighth floor. What a great view, across Lincoln Park and the Lake! The lobby and rooms have lots of charm. We enjoyed just sitting in the lobby watching locals bring their dogs in for a special treat at the front desk, joggers stopping by for a cold drink of water, and just chatting with other guests. This hotel truly has a neighborhood feel, which is part of the charm of Chicago afterall. Don't miss breakfast in the coffee shop off the lobby. Like others, can't wait to come back!

This hotel was outstanding! The room was very, very clean. The view of the park and lake were wonderful from our 7th floor room. The staff was amazing and could not have been more attentive. The room wasn't huge but was spacious enough for the two of us and the furnishings were perfect. It is a short walk to the Lincoln Park Zoo where we spent an afternoon. We were visiting relatives who live 3 blocks from the hotel and they picked the hotel for us. Great choice! Yes, we will definitely stay there again. Thank you!

Room Tip: The few extra dollars for the park and lake view are worth the extra few dollars! 7th floor had a w...
