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.
