Great value and unsurpassed location

Would recommend Sun, Aug 17, 2014
Booked this hotel last-minute as part of a quick extended weekend Chicago getaway. While not being located in the heart of Chicago's tourist-laden River North district, Hotel Lincoln is located in the heart of the Old Town neighborhood. Located directly across the street from the lush greenery of Lincoln Park and only minutes from Lake Michigan and the Wells Street bar/restaurant strip, this hotel is perfectly situated for a variety of Chicago activities. As Old Town is far less congested than River North, street parking is FAR most accessible and much less expensive. We stayed on a Sunday night when the hotel was fairly empty and were upgraded to a suite. The room was spacious (2 bathrooms!) and fashionable in a retro cool, kitschy sort of way. Staff was very pleasant and the rooftop bar (The J. Parker) offers good drinks and fantastic views of Lincoln Park and the city skyline. My only complaint was that the AC failed to get cold enough for my liking (although keep in mind that I like sleeping temps to be in the mid-60s). Overall a great value.

Nightlife hint

Check out The J. Parker - Hotel Lincoln's rooftop bar/lounge. This spot fills up pretty quickly on nice weekend days so be sure to get here early. Fantastic views!

Excellent Experience

Would recommend Sun, Aug 3, 2014
The hotel was well located - (within walking distance of shopping, many restaurants and fun pubs), very trendy and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The onsite restaurant was outstanding - (all ingredients were fresh and the service was excellent).The park is across the street and on Saturdays there is a farmer's market. The Chicago History Museum is one block down the street and the Theaters are a short cab ride away. Transportation was very easy for taxis, bicycles and if you are a walker - the Metra station is about a 10 minute walk. The hotel has a very competitive pet friendly policy and a great rooftop bar - very popular with hotel and local guests. The hotel is a restored building with a clean, safe, friendly atmosphere. I will gladly stay here again.

Nightlife hint

You can choose a different pub and restaurant every night. They are all good!

Great hotel in a terrific location

Would recommend Wed, Jul 30, 2014
This was our second stay at Hotel Lincoln, and because we were repeat customers they upgraded our room. It is always a friendly place, and we like the staff and the neighborhood very much. The hotel is a good value, and we are planning to stay there again this fall. We have recommended Hotel Lincoln to our friends and family because we like it so much.

Dining

There are loads of restaurants along Wells Street, behind Hotel Lincoln, which would suit any taste.

Awesome boutique in a Great location!

Would recommend Fri, Jul 18, 2014
This hotel is exceptional. It's located right next to Lincoln Park with a beautiful view of the Lake Michigan. The rooftop bar is top notch, and the staff is great! The room was small but cozy and classy. Also the entire building was clean and inviting looking with a hip sort of contemporary flair. And for the price?!! Such a great deal! I had an awesome stay.

I can't say enough good things

Would recommend Thu, Jul 17, 2014
Having live in Chicago about 4 years ago for more than 10 years I know Chicago very well. This hotel is at a very unique location for visitors of Chicago. For those living in Chicago it's in the heard of one of the most upscale neighborhoods. It gives you a more of the feel you would have if you were a local rather than stay where all the tourists stay. That being said the hotel was so unique. Locates right on the park had one of the most incredible rooftop bars with a view of the park. A must even if you don't stay here. My room was very large and had the most comfortable bed. Stay was top notch and very helpful. Will definitely stay here again next time I am back to Chicago.
