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

Cool place

The room was small which made me feel like I was in a European hotel. The location is excellent on the border between Lincoln Park & Old Town. The seven-block walk to the nearest "L" train station provided good exercise. The restaurant and roof-top bar are great!

A great stay at modest cost.

Hotel's single-bed room was very compact but fully adequate if not spending long hours in it. It had good amenities, really only lacking a refrigerator. Only shortcoming in cleanliness was a bit of hair trapped low in a fold of the shower curtain the first night. Parking valet earned his tip running a long distance through snow & traffic to bring the car neatly brushed off. Rooftop bar offers an excellent burger if you don't want to go out (Old Town with a selection of popular bars and good restaurants is nearby# or dine at the high end on-site restaurant #pricey, but food was great#. Free in-room wireless Internet access with speed adequate for business use #you can upgrade to watch videos without pauses). I would definitely go back.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

Old Town is within long walking distance and contained many establishments packed during mid-week at happy-hour, plus restaurants (I had excellent veal marsala at a reasonable price at one). If not walking, figure on close to $20 for valet parking plus tip.

Great Lincoln Park hotel

Very nice rooms, although they are small, and the hotel's restaurant and rooftop bar are each pretty special! If you want the Lincoln Park/Old Town Chicago experience, this is the hotel to stay in!

Loved the location near Lincoln Park and Old Town. The view of the park and bedding was very comfortable. We enjoyed the roof bar for drinks and would go back sometime.
