"The location is terrific, right across the street from Lincoln Park and the zoo, and a short stroll to the lake. The staff could not have been kinder or more helpful."

Rooms & Rates

We love the Hotel Lincoln for being one of the best options for travelers to really see the Chicago that exists outside of downtown -- it sits in one of Chicago’s most desirable neighborhoods, next to Lincoln Park and Old Town. Frommers even calls the hotel "among the most fun, lighthearted and quirky hotels in town ... in one of the best neighborhood locations." 

The funky-retro rooms are on the smaller side but all come with 42-inch flat-panel TVs, free high-speed internet, coffeemakers and a variety of local artwork on the walls; some feature kitchenettes. Opt for a room facing east on the ninth floor for the best views over the park and the lake. Suites are a better option for families with sleeper sofas and more space.

Location is a huge draw for the Hotel Lincoln. Guests can be sunning themselves on North Avenue Beach or wandering the Lincoln Park Zoo in just minutes, and the Chicago History Museum and the famed Second City are both also a short stroll south. Steppenwolf Theater, DePaul University and dozens of top restaurants, bars and clubs around Lincoln Park and Old Town are also within a quick walk, and you're still about a ten-minute cab ride from the Mag Mile. 

Closer to home, the hotel's J. Parker cocktail bar and restaurant is regularly named one of the city's top rooftop bars. The 13th-story views of downtown and Lincoln Park are "some of the best in the city," per Fodor's. It's also 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. 

There is a limited fitness center on site, and 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.

Hotel Lincoln is an older hotel with a relaxed and artsy feel. The rooms are small with older fixtures, but the first rate location and service override this.

Everything!!! I rate a hotel on three major things for me when staying away from home. Comfort of the bed, the quality of the towels and the service of the staff. The Lincoln hotel would get a 15 on a scale of 1-10. The bed was so comfortable, the towels were soft and plentiful and the staff...well outstanding!!!!! From the time we booked with Brittney, parked our car with the Valet until the last day when the bell hop helped us pack our car.....we were treated like we were part of the Lincoln hotels family. The diverse personalities and the interest in our well being was very comforting for us. Our daughter's wedding was across the street and they helped us make our arrangements with ease. Cant say enough of how happy we were to have stayed there. Looking forward to coming back!!!
