Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Hotel Lincoln

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"Gem of a Hotel in Lincoln Park"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I toured the Hotel Lincoln and found a gem of a hotel! The hotel is on Clark Street in Lincoln Park right across the street from Lincoln Park Zoo with easy access to the Lake. Just a 10 minute taxi or quick bus ride to Michigan Avenue and downtown sites. Visit boutique shopping and stellar dining in Lincoln Park and hang out like local Chicagoans! Each room is decorated with art work from local artists complete with a painting of Abraham Lincoln in every room. The hotel has 4 complimentary bicycles for guest use to explore the city. Junior and 1 bedroom suites are available for a little more space. Visit the roof top for Yoga on Wednesday mornings. J. Park Roof Top lounge has some of the best views of the lake in the city and you can also try Perennial restaurant for Breakfast and Dinner. All meeting space is on the 2nd floor of the hotel with natural lighting. Up to 64 attendees can be accommodated with personalized service and catering from Perennial restaurant. Give the Hotel Lincoln a try for your next event!
