About Hotel Lincoln

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.

Great Hotel
Super friendly staff who go out of their way to make sure you have everything for your stay. Nice cafe and restaurant Very comfortable bed Local area has lots of amenities and downtown is easily accesible by bus Only issue was very old heater in the room which was quite noisy

Lovely Hotel Lincoln!
Wonderful from start to finish, Drew gave us a warm and friendly welcome and we were upgraded on arrival which was very kind. We had lovely chocolates and a note in our room, all the amenities we could have needed and a very comfy bed! Housekeeping service was also fantastic. Location just across from the park and zoo was ideal, town a comfortable walk away and old town just behind the hotel. What with the fantastic food and the rooftop bar, there's nothing else you could possibly need! Would certainly stay again.

Good location, okay hotel
The rooms were quite basic and a little dated, there was also a lot of construction work happening in the lobby at the time which we were not made aware of when we booked. The staff were friendly though and the location was great

Very Good8.0
I initially gave some feedback that the room I had was shabby and was offered a room change straight afterwards. We were moved to a suite with more room and a tidier look. It’s a relaxed fun hotel, it was quiet in the rooms. Great service and I would stay here again, it’s a great location.

Convenieint and clean .
The hotel is in a good area by Lincoln Park a short bus ride from the main area of Chicago. You can get the hop on hop off bus by the Hard rock restaurant to see most of the sights so you can go to any one you want. The roof bar and restaurant was very busy when we were there as they book party's who are not staying at the hotel which is a bit inconvenient if you want a quiet drink or something to eat there is an inside bar which was quiet when we where there. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
