Super Location and Great Staff

Jul 19th, 2019

When I booked our stay at Hotel Lincoln I was looking for a hotel near the DePaul Lincoln Park campus and this appeared to be the best option. In the Lyft from O’Hare our driver shared with us that we were staying at a great location near Old Town with many good restaurants and Second City. Also walking distance to the John Hancock tower where we could dine or have drinks on the 96th floor. Not to mention, directly across the street from the park. We arrived late due to flight delays and we were checked in right away. We had a one bedroom suite with a king size bed and a fold out couch and two full baths. The bed was comfortable, the couch not so much (but didn’t really expect it to be). Three of us had plenty of space and privacy between rooms. The staff was friendly and very helpful, recommending great dining options nearby. I would definitely stay here again. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Drip Pricing

Jul 16th, 2019

Hotel was fine. But the "resort fee" which you don't hear about until you check in (where else are you going to go???) is thievery. $40 for water and internet access. They don't even have exercise facilities. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Great location

Great location across from Lincoln Park. Close to the lake. Best part was checking out the market across the street (Wednesday and Saturday). We ate breakfast at the market. Kid friendly hotel and location. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

I’m always on the lookout for a nice but decently priced hotel in Chicago between my family near Wrigley and downtown. I thought Hotel Lincoln would be “the one”, but it turned out it was just OK. Not terrible, not fabulous, just ok. The pros: 1. location. It’s perfect, just across the street from the park, about 2 miles to Lakeview and about 2 miles to Navy Pier. 2. Decor: Our room was tiny (as advertised) but I thought the artsy Lincoln canvas that doubles as a headboard was cool. Bed was fine and I liked the real coffee cups and Wolfgang Puck coffee. 3. JParker rooftop bar was great, although extremely crowded with locals drinking and taking up all the tables and chairs. Cons: 1. I’m not sure how I missed this but I didn’t know about the $15 resort fee until I checked in. It was not listed on my email confirmation that I received when I made my reservation. Yes, $15 isn’t that much when you’re spending $250 for the night, but I really, really hate resort fees! Hotel industry- please just raise the room rate instead! Extra fees make me feel like I’m getting ripped off, even if I use the amenities the the fee covers. I took the “free” glass of Prosecco that is included in the fee, and we drank the water bottles, also part of the fee, but I’d rather just know up front the true cost. 2. Clientele: we were awoken by loud shouting and swearing right outside our room, which was apparently a guest in the room next to us fighting with his drunken friends. I called the front desk and they said they’d send someone up, and they did, but he didn’t stick around to escort the drunks out of the hotel. The shouting and swearing went on for another 5-10 minutes or so, so I called the front desk again. About 10 minutes or so it quieted down so I assume they kicked the folks out. Since I’m paying the hotel so I can sleep, if there’s something that interferes with that, I feel I didn’t get my money’s worth. I thought we should have been offered some sort of compensation at checkout, but we weren’t. 3. Our bathroom had a soap dish but there was no soap. There was a mini bottle of body wash and shampoo so we used those to wash our hands. I’m assuming the lack of soap was a housekeeping oversight, as I’ve never stayed in an American hotel, especially one priced between $200-$400 a night that didn’t provide a mini bar of soap. Or, if it was intentional, why bother putting out a soap dish when the sink is so small? Overall our stay was ok. Just ok. I might stay here again but only if I can’t find a better deal somewhere else. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Very nice hotel. In a great LINCOLN PARK location. Lots to walk to. Good bars and easy to lake. Staff was uber friendly and looks like the cafe make some killer muffins. Just ask the front desk staff. Totally would stay here again. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
