About Hotel Lincoln, Chicago

Arty hotel with vintage charm by Chicago's Lincoln Park

Peaceful park life

Located across the street from Lincoln Park and the Lakefront Trail, Hotel Lincoln offers a peaceful respite from Chicago's bustling urban streets. A quick 12-minute drive, and you can explore the city center or watch Chicago's beloved Cubs play ball at historic Wrigley Field.

Short walk to the Zoo

It's a short walk to Lincoln Park Zoo where you can watch the animals - from jaguars and gorillas, to owls and elephants - free of charge. If you prefer the roar of laughter over that of lions, a 10-minute walk takes you to The Second City, where you can enjoy comedy as you dine.

Gourmet snacks and meals

You can explore the city on 2 wheels courtesy of hotel rental bikes or get your cardio in the 24-hour fitness center. At mealtimes, there are 2 options: J. Parker rooftop bar for cocktails, upscale bar snacks, and views, or The Kennison for dinner. Guest can also wake up to the hotel's breakfast (surcharge).

WiFi and vintage decor

184 rooms come with free WiFi as well as flat-screen TVs with premium cable channels. The charming decor mixes elements of vintage Chicago with modern flair, and the original art by local artists adds a personalized touch to each room.

When is a door not a door?
We stayed two nights. The room the first night was very small and gave off an unclean vibe. The bed seemed smaller than the queen we paid for. Second room was better in everyway. Only big complaint was the bathroom doors. It’s those new ones that slide. Does no one see the one inch gap all around the door? Can no one tell there is no soundproofing? What about privacy for those inside and outside? A lot of hotels were sold a bill of goods. Great services. Great restaurant by the way.

Everything but generous space.
Hotel, front desk, housekeeping and rooftop bar employees were all pleasant, helpful and courteous. Comfort rating is down from top because room felt small after others we stay in. Not much space for suitcases to be open, dressertop surfaces, etc.. I do understand that is due to the age of the building. Location very good for us; parking way too costly so we had to finagle. Bed was lovely.

Quirky, charming hotel
I love this quirky hotel and the staff is always so accommodating and personable. However, the condition of the rooms has declined in the past couple of years.
