Loved this place!!! Total hipster hotel from the young people behind the front desk to the coffee shop on the lobby!! The lobby reminds me of Central Perk on the TV show a Friends!! Our room was spacious with a pullout. Very comfortable but the air conditioner was a bit loud!! Great location with the best Farmers Market ever a across the street on Saturdays. Rooftop bar one of the best in Chicago with great view and really good service! Definitely the go to happy hour place in Lincoln... Read more

I arrived late at this hotel after a long day of work. The woman at the front desk could not have been ruder - she was reading my reservation incorrectly and told me that only 1 out of my 3 rooms had checked in (I'm traveling with 2 colleagues who had already checked in, and my fear was that I would either accidentally be let into one of their rooms, or that we'd be charged for an extra room). She insisted over and over (extremely rudely) that only 1 had checked in, even though I knew that not t... Read more

They know hospitality and exceeded my expectations. Not only were they reasonably priced the guest service was phenomenal. The roof top bar is well kept, the view is beautiful, and the attendance from our bar tender, Patrick and JC made me feel at home. So many amazing places to visit inChicago but the hotel Licoln never gave me a reason to leave...when I did I just went back. I will only stay at the Hotel Lincol.

Stayed one night, was well served by a very helpful staff at the front desk. There are hotels with bigger rooms in Chicago, but this is a friendly hotel in a nice neighbourhood. Lincoln park, the Old town and several museums are within walking distance, and downtown can be reached easily by public transportation.

My husband and I arrived around 9am on our first day, and the friendly and helpful desk staff had a room ready for us already. The room was small but immaculate in decor and cleanliness - I was not expecting how much I loved the 'look' of everything in this hotel.

I stayed at Hotel Lincoln based on existing reviews and what was in my travel budget for business. I don't stay in the city often when I travel for business so I'm always a little concerned of what I'll get for the money since rates are so much higher.

I had high expectations for this hotel based on the price ($500 ballpark) and location. We had a "Jr Suite" which is a 1 room that is big enough to accommodate a bed and pull out sofa, with 2 bathrooms which was nice. However, the sliding doors to the bathroom were quite difficult to open and close, they did not slide easily at all. The elevators motivated me to want to take the stairs, the carpet left me speechless (photo). The decor, albeit eclectic and trendy, it looks like the cast of Bar... Read more

Charlie was awesome he greeted me at the desk & was friendly, helpful and even offered to place my restaurant order for my room as they were about ready to close the kitchen. The hotel was quiet, clean and close to Old Town. The next day I checked out and Edgar was also friendly, helpful on directions too. I'll be staying there again on my next visit.

What a terrific choice staying at Hotel Lincoln Chicago was! It was recommended by a local and from what I can tell isn't too well know to out of town guests. That is a shame. From the amazing front desk gentlemen with exceptional service and great personalities to the incredible rooftop bar and restaurant this hotel does not disappoint. Located close to everything you need! The decor and atmosphere was fun and unique and truly felt like a getaway. Although this was my first trip to Chicago and ... Read more

The hotel Lincoln is located on Lincoln Park in a leafy area of town. It is not dead central, but we walked to the centre everyday and found staying here ideal - we would have found central Chicago too built up. You get a choice of park view or lake view for your room. We chose park as it was a bit cheaper and I think that was all that was left when we booked. We thought that would mean we were on a different side of the hotel, but the difference is height of the room. If you are higher up, you ... Read more

The Lincoln Hotel was quirky and fun --not your cookie cutter hotel like every other one that you've used. We loved the location and found it to be clean and comfortable. However, it is an old building! They have done an excellent job creating a boutique environment, but the elevator is slow and the ice machine on our floor did not work, and the air conditioner unit could be loud. I had contact with 4 staff members at the desk. They were all helpful and pleasant, but Olen gets a shout out a... Read more

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights at the start of our honeymoon. Unfortunately we were not given any honeymoon extras like we received in other hotels but we had a comfortable bed and were in a handy location for a walk or quick uber downtown. I like the staff uniforms with the cool braces and check shirts. The staff were very helpful. The J.Parker rooftop bar attracts a lot of people in. Probably most suited to younger people but we didn't experience any noise as a result of it. We ... Read more

We (2 adults) enjoyed our stay at this fantastic hotel . We had a quick 2-day trip with plans for shows at IO Theater. The front desk, Van, was exceptional; friendly, genuine and professional. Everything was ready, the room was nice and cold on a hot August day and the location is great. A quick walk to Lake Michigan, this hotel is superb for the price. My wife and I enjoyed a rooftop happy hour with a spectacular view. Be mindful it's an older hotel, but we knew that going in and would book ... Read more

Chose this hotel randomly for convenience and price. Such a great find! Smallish rooms, but clean and comfortable. Staff was beyond friendly and helpful! Rooftop bar and restaurant (we had brunch) were fabulous! I'd stay again in a heartbeat.

This is an ok hotel in a great location, but needs work,, It tries to be a boutique hotel, but is a pale version of one. Nice touches that you normally see in boutique hotels are non-existent, even the water downstairs is always empty or no cups. The rooms need updating, the halls, everything. There is an ok vibe here, but for almost $350/night I could have stayed in a much nicer hotel. And, if you are not under 30, the drunk crowds from the rooftop invade the lobby and elevators, Could tr... Read more

Great experience. Very cool rooftop bar, great restaurant. The rooms were a little on the small side, but that's as to be expected for the city. The bathroom door doesn't lock, it's a sliding door. Could be an issue for some but didn't bother me.

My fiancé found this place when we were putting together a package to goto a Cubs game. Its literally across the street from the southern end of Lincoln park zoo. The check in was a breeze. The staff was very cool from top to bottom. We sampled 2 of the 3 on site restaurants (the rooftop restaurant was a little too "young" for us but we heard good things about it.) The coffee shop quickly became our daily launch point after the main restaurant while very good overall, was a little pricey for e... Read more

We stayed at the Lincoln Hotel Sept. 1-3/16. The Hotel is in North Chicago with an ideal Lincoln park location. Area seems upscale, bus stop across the road. We bought a transit pass for $20 each and rode the "L", buses, subways all weekend even took it too and from the airport. Very easy to get around. An Uber or taxi was going to be $80 plus tolls, and the shuttle from the airport was $22 each with 9 people in a shuttle. Riding the "L" gave us unobstructed views, no tolls bridges and t...

Very friendly reception staff on check in and large room complete with 2 bathrooms in a great non touristy park of town. Not much information was provided in the room (check out time, things to do, info on the hotel) and the room was made up about 4pm which I thought was a tad late (but it was busy). The lifts were dated and very very slow. But overall a funky hotel and worth staying for the area alone.

Great place to stay, fun local bars and restaurants nearby, with the hotel's roof garden available - though each time I went it was busy so standing room only. Room was huge with two bathrooms which was great (so no arguing over who goes first!). The only downside to the hotel for me was, having the rooms cleaned quite late - between 3.30/4.00pm which was annoying as had been out all day and had a really early dinner booked. So if you are a late to rise and get out then, this is perfect hotel... Read more

The hotel is across from Lincoln Park which is really nice. The rooftop bar and view are amazing. Rooms are really small, think NYC. I was a little claustrophobic, It would be nice if there was more common space to hang out and work. If you don't plan on being in the room much the location makes up for the small rooms.

Great hotel in a lovely part of Chicago. We had a view of the park and lake. All staff pleasant and helpful. We did not use the restaurant but paid a visit to the roof top bar which was OK and great views. Visited a few local restaurants including Riccardos Trattoria, the Galway Arms and Nookies for breakfast; all recommended. Within walking distance to the city centre (about 30 mins), but we also used the El to Sedgewick station. Used a Ventra card for the two of us and just topped up as we we... Read more

We stayed on a Friday night. The hotel has an amazing rooftop bar with a retractable roof that has an incredible view of Lincoln Park and the lake. The hotel is a remodeled older hotel so the rooms are very small. Nonetheless, it was clean and comfortable, and nicely decorated. I don't think there is a nicer hotel on Lincoln Park. The staff were very nice. There is a nice coffee shop in the first floor that makes great lattes. They have valet parking for $51 or you can park across the street a ... Read more

We were in Chicago for Christmas last year and stayed at this very charming hotel. The people at the front desk (and at the hotel as a whole) were so nice, so nice that we cannot find the words to describe our satisfaction. Our room had a view to Lincoln Park and you could easily walk to the Park's Zoo. There are buses at the door (going downtown and back). The room was small (which was expected) but not tiny. Very nice bathroom and shower, clean and well maintained. We would definetely stay the... Read more

We had everything we needed under one roof. The staff gave me the impression they actually enjoyed being there, which translates to great customer service. The only thing between the hotel and the lake is a great park. They have a nature trail and a free zoo. You can grab a cup of coffee from the barista in the morning and take a nice walk around. At night, there's a farm-to-table restaurant downstairs and a lounge on top of the roof.

We used Hotel Lincoln for our wedding room block and Kathryn was super easy to work with! They did a great job of making us and our guests feel special given the big day we were celebrating. The hotel itself is colorful and fun, and the staff were all really helpful. It is an older building so the rooms are sometimes oddly shaped. I completed their survey and got a very fast and personalized response to the two issues I mentioned (our TV wasn't working right and the elevators are a bit slow). Ov... Read more

This was my first time in Chicago and I had a very nice stay in the Hotel Lincoln. My room was on the tenth floor and overlooked the Lincoln Park neighbourhood- so although I didn't get the more sought after views of the park or the lake I did get to watch the sunset. The hotel is in a quieter part of town, close to Second City, and with good cafes and restaurants nearby. It's also within walking distance of some of the blues clubs (I took a taxi to Kingston Mines and then walked back round 1... Read more

I had gotten a discount travel voucher from a company and when I booked my travel, the agent suggested I upgrade to this hotel. What a treat it was. From the painted cloth on the wall behind the bed of Lincoln kicked back with his feet up, to the outstanding location and even the Roof Top Bar.

We booked the Lincoln as we liked the fact it was not far from the Lake Michigan front. We are really pleased we chose to stay here as its in the Old Town with lovely buildings and independent cafes and bars. It's quieter here than in the city centre, but close enough to get in on the Loop Train in 15 mins or walk if you want some exercise. We received a text from the hotel the day before we arrived saying they were looking forward to welcoming us and to let them know if we had any requiremen... Read more

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It's right in the middle of many of the amazing things Chicago has to offer, so we just gave our car to the valets and walked and took the train around town. Every person we interacted with, from the clerks to the valets to the cleaning staff were not only helpful, they were friendly!

My husband and I loved the Hotel Lincoln. Steps away from Lincoln Park, Lake Michigan and lovely neighborhoods, we were enchanted by tours, museums, restaurants and activities. The rooftop J. Parker Bar is a must do, offering sweeping views of the water. Staff were friendly and helpful, and rooms comfortable. We can't wait to return!

The vibe is young and cool, yes, and the location is great. But for the room prices, not great value. Several rooms are small, elevators are extremely slow; the restaurant is very good, but room service hours are terribly limited; housekeeping needs more staff to get things done earlier. Front desk folks are extremely friendly, however, and younger couples clearly love the attention. This is a "fun" hotel, but needs work to attract more mainline guests, especially at these prices.
