Hotel Lincoln Review

Directly across from Lincoln Park, this historic property has a fresh, cool, kitschy vibe but feels authentic thanks to details like the original Hotel Lincoln sign in the lobby. The 184 guest rooms' and suites' vintage details are offset by modern elements, including original art. For the best views, ask for a room 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 best views in the city.

    Awesome Hotel!!

    I would give this hotel 6 stars if I could! Staff and customer service beyond my expectation. Coffee shop staff great and location was perfect for our weekend getaway. I will be back and already counting the days!

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
