Reinvented as the Hotel Lincoln in 2012, this historic property once played host to gangsters including Al Capone. Today, it sits in one of Chicago’s most desirable neighborhoods, next to Lincoln Park but still just a 10-minute ride to downtown and the Magnificent Mile.
The enormous J. Parker rooftop restaurant and lounge has "some of the best views in the city," says Fodor's, and is regularly named one of the city's top rooftop bars. It's known for its mixologist-driven list of signature cocktails, and seats can be very hard to get in summer -- but even in winter, guests can comfortably enjoy the view from the rooftop's glass-enclosed terrace.
Downstairs, dining at Perennial Virant is rated "extraordinary" by Zagat and recommended by the Michelin Guide as a place "where each ingredient-driven dish honors farmers and seasonality." During warmer months, the popular Green City Market pops up every Saturday right across the street.
Although there’s a limited fitness center onsite, day passes to the Equinox health club next door are also available for purchase. Borrow a bike (free of charge) to get around, or catch one of the hotel’s free pedicabs, which run to nearby landmarks. Lake Michigan is just on the other side of the park.
The funky-retro rooms aren’t enormous, but all come with original artwork on the walls, 42" flat-panel TVs and free high-speed internet. Opt for one facing east on the ninth floor for the best views over the park and the lake. Suites are a good option for families, with sleeper sofas and more space.
