Hotel Lincoln

The Hotel Lincoln Chicago impresses with its location. Situated at 1816 North Clark Street, the hotel calls the attractive North Side neighborhood of Lincoln Park home.

Especially satisfying are the views from the upper level rooms that face east towards Lincoln Park and Lake Michigan. Standard amenity highlights in all of the Hotel Lincoln Chicago rooms include HD TVs and iHome Docking Stations.
