Hi raunchmeyer, Thanks for the kind words! We are so happy you found us. Hotel Lincoln is definitely on the road less traveled, and it makes a difference! Being so close to downtown, but also across from the park and lake, makes this the perfect...More

Thanks for your review. Glad we could be your home away from home for over a week. So happy that your enjoyed the views and that our team took great care of you. See you next time you are this side of the pond.

If you are interested in staying away from the Loop / Downtown and like the Lincoln Park Neighborhood - try the Hotel Lincoln. It’s a charming, beautiful, historic hotel that has an amazing rooftop with breathtaking views of the city and Lake Michigan.
