The new Hotel Lincoln is a window to the most dynamic part of Chicago's North Side, Lincoln Park. Like the neighborhood, the hotel is historic yet fresh, fun though eccentric, active but relaxed. It's where the energy of urban life meets 1,200 green acres and Lake Michigan. All of which makes the Lincoln that unique place where the rhythms of a great city can be felt, savored and adopted as your own. The Lincoln's 184 rooms are classic Chicago seen through an eclectic, contemporary lens. They're on the preppy side, designed and furnished with modern and vintage details, including original art from local artists. Rooms on the highest floors - 9 through 12 - feature the hotel finest views, especially when facing east toward Lincoln Park and the lake.

Onsite parking $44.00 per night Offsite parking $25.00 per night

Good location but bare bones

The hotel is in a good location but the rooms are lacking. It feels like an old motel with slightly updated decor. No mini bar, no room service and no bottled water in the rooms so, if you arrive late at night and want a small snack or drink without going to a restaurant, be prepared to walk four blocks to the 24 hr Walgreens. Also customer service was not great. The first room I was given had a non-working phone and when I asked to switch, I got a lot of attitude from the manager at the front desk. It's a shame because it has such potential.

Charming and hip

Hotel Lincoln is in a great location and has a hip vibe. Our room wasn't big, but the decor was great and it was clean. If you have a car, there is some neighborhood/meter parking options, so you don't necessarily have to park in their lot or valet it. Didn't try the restaurants, but they looked fun and popular.

Loved this hotel and location

The hotel was eclectically elegant... with a roof-top lounge to die for, and proximity to the lake, huge green space, lincoln park zoo, and fabulous restaurants and shopping. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The bed in the room was incredibly comfortable. Only thing missing was I wished it had a fridge or minibar, but loved the experience enough to extend my stay.

Park at the museum public parking. It's about a half a block walk, and will save you half on parking.

Excellent Stay

We stayed four days and five nights and it was a pleasure from the start. The staff welcomed us and helped with city tours and informed us of how to use public transportation. The location is abut a 15 minute bus ride north of downtown. The neighborhood has plenty of restaurants, a free zoo and is walkable to a nice Lake Michigan beach. Lincoln park is is well kept with many walking paths, benches & open lawn areas. If we were to go back to Chicago we would definitely stay here.

Wells Avenue is behind the hotel and if you walk towards downtown there are some nice pubs and restaurants a few blocks away.

Great classic hotel!

Other than the room door that had to be kicked to open and slammed to be shut, the room was small but comfortable. Staff and Location were wonderful and would definitely stay there again.
