loved the employees here! I am formerly from the hotel industry and everyone here was just amazing! can't wait to return. The room was just what we needed, two bathrooms was a plus, the valet parking can't be beat, and the location was perfect! Kudos!!

What a great boutique hotel. I much prefer a hotel with charm over larger boring rooms with dead-eyed desk staff. The Lincoln, while the rooms (at least the one we stayed in, double occupancy with a king size bed) are on the tiny side it exudes CHARM and comfortability - from the art work heading up the main stairs to...

The staff at the hotel are so responsive and kind. Junior, a wonderfully bright and kind man, fixed my air conditioning and made sure my room was working and fully operational for all my needs for the week I was there. Deborah from housekeeping went above and beyond my expectations! She saw that I had a cold so she brought... More

We stayed 2 nights in a King Bedroom, Jr. Suite. Hardly heard any street noise at all except for the morning they emptied the dumpsters on the street. Hardly the fault of the hotel but that was the ONLY noise we heard the entire time. Never heard our neighbors (we were on the 4th floor), never heard noises from the... More

We stayed in a suite on the 12th floor that overlooked with views on 2 sides including a nice view of the Lincoln Park Zoo and Lake Michigan. Being Thanksgiving weekend, the bonus was the view of the Christmas lights at the zoo once the sun went down. Rooftop bar signature cocktails were fantastic. Staff was always friendly and helpful.

Very nice "kitchy" feel. Fake drawers on the front of the desk was fun along with the modern hip furniture. The restaurant was very good for breakfast. Don't know about other meals, but based on breakfast, would assume it is great. The rooftop bar has a beautiful view but so noisy that we could not visit with our friends and... More

Stayed the night before Thanksgiving. Staff was super helpful and accommodating, while maintaining a professional welcoming demeanor. Room was super spacious - we had a king suite. Having 2 bathrooms was awesome- esp as we are a family of 4 and had to get cleaned up for family dinner after the turkey trot... rooftop bar was lovely. Only negative was... More

Attended a wedding across the street so the hotel was perfect. The room was small but others had larger rooms. The staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. I'm not a pet person but some guest had pets with them. The separate coffee shop was great. I would stay there again but search for a larger room.

The entire staff was fantastic. I've seldom seen it to this level for the entire staff. The restaurant was very good with a farm-to-table eccentric menu. The roof top lounge has outstanding views of the Lake, Lincoln Lark, and the skyline. Extremely popular. Non-guests wait in long lines. They even had a water bowl and treats for our dog. I'd...
