Directly across from Lincoln Park, this historic property has a cool, kitschy vibe but still feels authentic, thanks to details like the original Hotel Lincoln sign in the lobby. Its guest rooms also combine vintage and modern elements, including original art; for the best views, ask for one on the ninth floor or above, facing east toward the park and the lake. Family suites, a nice option for those traveling with kids, have two bathrooms, a king bed, and a separate sleeping area with bunk beds. The hotel adjoins the farmhouse-chic Perennial Virant restaurant; the rooftop J. Parker restaurant and lounge has some of the city's best views.
