AWESOME Location! Updated vintage hotel

Oct 30th, 2020

My husband and I hosted our wedding party at Hotel Lincoln for 4 nights, first weekend of October. I cannot say enough great things about the hotel itself and the staff. The hotel is a vintage Chicago building. It has been updated with all of the modern amenities we have grown accustomed to as consumers. We had 2 Lakeview Jr Suites and it was FABULOUS for our wedding getting ready. Plenty of space. The staff, from Lea the event coordinator to the housekeeping staff, was amazing. Every request ( and we had several) were met immediately. The front desk staff was SO NICE. Now, let's get to the really awesome thing... they are pet friendly! We were able to bring our dog with us for wedding weekend. We would walk her in Lincoln Park across the street. They have a little drawer full of dog treats and our dog figured that out after two walks! We are going back next year for our first anniversary! Thank you Hotel Lincoln for making our wedding weekend so awesome!!!! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Great Location - Small Rooms but Overall Very Good

Oct 2nd, 2020

Great Location. Safe, Right next to Lincoln Park and the free zoo - need to make reservations for the zoo. Citibikes are located right next door which was very nice - I would get the entire day on the Citibikes as an FYI. The hotel does have two bikes to use but only one was really ridable. Room was very small but clean and nice. Front desk people were all very nice. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

The old Lincoln was far better

I miss the original Lincoln Hotel. Now it's corporate owned and they actually charge a resort fee. What's comical is this property is not a resort. Bring back the original Lincoln and the charm and friendliness they once had. The Lincoln sign is crying and blinking to return to the glory of the past. It's ruined for now with corporate greed.

Stylish room, nice vibes, dog-friendly, great location

Sep 2nd, 2020

I loved my two-night stay here so much in going back tomorrow! My room was very small, but it was packed with style. I didn't mind the size at all. It still had an ironing board and a big bath tub. What else do I need? It also had a desk and a corner seat. The bathroom was especially nice. The fabulous location is across the street from Lincoln Park (the park) and in a very nice neighborhood. It's a short walk to Lincoln Park restaurants and shopping and my favorite, Oz Park. The staff was friendly and helpful. I appreciate that they allow dogs without fees. Some hotels are so greedy with their pet fees. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Underwhelming, borderline disappointing

Aug 30th, 2020

We live in Chicago but my family (preschool and infant) had to relocate for a few days due to construction. We chose somewhere close to home and ended up at Lincoln Hotel. Having never been but had driven by many times we were excited to try out this boutique hotel that looked like it had real potential...from the outside. While I’ll cut the experience some slack due to Covid, the pandemic cannot be blamed for all of the faults: -Lobby felt very dark and sad -Room was overwhelmingly dissatisfying -Cable TV didn’t work -Window ac units were loud -Furniture was very cheap and damaged (felt like frat house furniture, a lot of scratches, bubbled wood veneer, chipped pieces) -Pillows were lumpy -Carpet was coming up in corners/edges -Shower head (while Kohler brand) was ineffective for women trying to rinse out any product -Room lighting was poor, dark -Our room overlooked the back of a building and a fire escape -Room didn’t feel clean (hairs found on carpet, shower curtain was dirty enough for us to not feel comfortable using it) Rooftop was open for breakfast which provides a lovely view of the lake. It’s a quiet space and the only outdoor space the hotel provides. So because I was working from the hotel (and didn’t particularly care for the room) I thought the roof would be a nice place to work in the afternoon. However, it is closed between end of breakfast and dinner which I only came to find out after I was asked to leave. Best part, breakfast of on the roof, Kennison restaurant and proximity/location in Lincoln Park. I’d loosely recommend to anyone willing to accept a motel-esque experience room from a “boutique” hotel. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
