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

Older inner city hotel

While charming in many ways, we found the rooms very small, bathrooms even smaller and no counter top space. The in the wall heating unit made so much noise that we had to turn it off and then it allowed a very cold draft to enter the room. The unit also allowed outside noises to enter during the night. The room was clean, good shower, soft towels, and a decent mattress. Staff was very helpful and cheerful. Good restaurant but make reservations early.

Fun hotel in the heart of Lincoln Park

A bit of a funky hotel with unusual decor and room configurations (we had two full baths in our room), but for the cost and the location, it was hard to beat. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the hotel will be even nicer when the new roof-top restaurant opens this week. Enjoyable!

Family vacation

The location was perfect. No fridge in the room and we had a suite. We left an iPod in the room and it never made it's way back to us.

If you can find a parking spot on the street, take it. You can reload the parking and save on hotel parking. I parked for 18 hours on Clark and cost me $11. Free from 9pm to 8am

Nice intro to the Windy City

This hotel was wonderful as far as being close to the brown line and attractions. Walking for coffee in the AM and a drink in the PM was safe and pleasant. My only suggestion would be that they have : 1. outgoing mail for those wanting to send "snail mail" postcard we were told by the front desk staff they had none and 2. a hook in the bathroom to hang your clothes. AND 3. it would not hurt the front desk staff to say "hello" especially when you are staying 4 nights and are walking by 2-3 times a day. I know it is uber chick to not speak to paying guests but some are from out of state and find this very rude. Especially when guests say hello to you and get no response! Other than that we are sorry we will miss the roof top lounge but would travel here again!!

Buy a 3 day pass and use the train system. Brown line takes you down town and it is an easy change to get to airports. No need to rent a car. Safe even on weekends and after midnight!
