Loved the view from our room. Easy access to Lincoln park to walk our dogs. Guest services were excellent. Bathrooms could have been cleaner. Hair on floors. Room service menu was very limited. Would like to have more lunch and dinner options. Breakfast was cold upon arrival to room.

Nicely located for walking around Old Town and Lincoln Park (including the zoo) and discovering an "old" Chicago neighborhood. The hotel staff is most friendly and helpful and the rooftop bar is popular and definitely worth a visit or two for the views, drinks and food The hotel is a renovated building but lacks some of the usual amenities one...

Second time staying at the Hotel Lincoln. Service, décor, food all excellent. Perfect location with Park and Museums on one side, the restaurants, pubs and shops of Old Town on the other. Comfortable, clean room and staff went out of their way to be helpful, giving me good suggestions of restaurants, things to do, transportation and even an umbrella to...

We checked in for one night, with our two Airedale Terriers. Everyone made us feel welcomed, and appreciated. The suite we had booked was roomy, clean, and well appointed. A tiny bit more counterspace in the washroom would have been appreciated, but that's a nit. Excelled location, and the staff are energized, committed, and engaging.

Loved the Hotel Lincoln. It is in a great location with nothing but green space between you and Lake Michigan. So easy to walk to the free Lincoln Zoo and a longer, but very pleasant, walk to the beach via the pedestrian walkway over Lakeshore Drive. Public transportation very easy and close by and we easily found free street parking....

Thank You Hotel Lincoln! Picked my brother up from a long flight and headed straight to the hotel, where we were greeted with open arms and upgrades to the park view room (as the room reserved was a queen bed and we needed two beds). Staff was very receptive to my joking that I refused to sleep with this man,...

Room was very quiet, good ventilation, small but had everything needed for a comfortable stay. Public transportation was just outside the door or across the street. No need for a car, save your parking money and use public transportation!
