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

Great "staycation"

We're from the area, but we had never spent time exploring Lincoln Park. We decided to stay at the Hotel Lincoln because it seemed like a lovely establishment in an excellent location. The hotel is adorable. The decor seems like something out of a Wes Anderson film, the staff was consistently polite and engaging, and our room had a beautiful view of the park. The standard rooms are small, as it is an old building, but we knew that going in, and it did not bother us. The entire hotel was very clean. Overall, a very memorable stay.

Baseball Weekend

I was happy with the hotel we chose to stay at, from looking online to actually staying at the hotel, sometimes you never really know what you are going to get. I was worried I might miss out by not staying in the middle of all the high rise buildings but they were a very short cab ride away and the bellmen were always available to flag one down. This hotel is directly across from Lincoln Park which turned out to be a nice suprise. On Saturday morning's there is a very nice farmers market and we had some of the best fried donuts ever! Then you can walk through the park to the beach front and there are lots of people out and about enjoying the scenery and activity of the area. There was a rooftop bar which was a little less than impressive unless you really like the loud music and are single but other than that, suprisingly you can't hear the music unless you actually are on the roof - you can't hear it from your room. You should get a room with a lake view - well worth the minimum expense for that. The rooms are also pretty small but nice and there are so many other things to do in Chicago that it didn't matter.

average rooms. hideous decor. good restaura t

Location is lovely. The room was small with small beds of average comfort. Room decor was obnoxious. It was a weekend and I felt how much I payed seriously over estimated the value of the room. The restaurant was excellentfor both brunch and dinner.

Great weekend escape

We stayed here to celebrate my friend's 30th birthday and it was a great experience. The hotel is located near lots of Chicago attractions and bars and restaurants. The staff was very nice and helpful, and our room was clean and comfortable. Thanks for a great weekend getaway!

Awesome!

Came in for the weekend for my friend's wedding. Great location, close to everything I needed to see. I was able to check in early and was upgraded to a Jr Suite. The room was amazing. My friends were staying in a standard room and while it was small, was still a great room - clean, well appointed, cozy. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. It was a great experience, will definitely stay again.

Very boutique!!

We had the junior suite which was very comfortable. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Definitely would recommend this hotel if you don't need to stay in downtown Chicago.

Great Hotel - Fantastice Location

The Hotel Lincoln is in a great neighborhood location right across the street from Lincoln Park. The hotel is unique, so if you are looking for a cookie cutter hotel, this is not for you. We stayed in a lake view junior suite...would have been nice to be a little higher to get a better view of the lake, but the view was still great. The room was good sized and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. The rooftop lounge was a lot of fun. The restaurant was very nice, but a over priced. Awesome staff. This is a very easy and relaxing stay with plenty to do within walking distance. Will definitely stay here again.
