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

Excellent Experience

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.

Very nice hotel, with view of Lincoln Park

The staff was very accommodating, the hotel was very nice and clean. They had bikes to ride at no extra charge and since you are across the street from Lincoln Park this was a great feature. Free Wi Fi and a great location. If you request and pay for a "park view" be aware you will get street noise. Not bad but it was there. Take the Blue Line from the O'Hare to the Jackson Street Station and the 22 Bus, this drops you off right in front of the hotel

Great location

Good hotel with a great location. Staff was helpful and responded quickly to requests. It wasn't open yet, but they were working on a rooftop garden. I look forward to seeing it when I return.

Funky Lincoln Park Gem

My stay at this hotel was only an overnight but I couldn't have been happier. The room was clean, good natural lighting, the furniture was very hip and modern. We didn't have much time to actually participate in any of the amenities that the hotel had to offer outside of a quick cup of coffee at the coffee shop next door. The lobby was clean and also had a funky hip modern feel to it. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. I have already put this on my list of good hotels to stay in when visiting Chicago.

Newly renovated hotel in a great location

We enjoyed the Hotel Lincoln in Lincoln Park, Chicago. It is near the Lincoln Park Zoo and close to Lake Michigan. It is very clean, newly decorated, and very comfortable. We will look forward to our next visit to this hotel.
