Hotel Lincoln

Hotel Lincoln

****

Hotel Lincoln’s enviable north side Chicago setting – across from a tranquil 1,200 acre park on sparkling Lake Michigan – might make you forget for a moment that you are in the third-largest US city. However, the cloud-popping skyline views from the buzzing rooftop bar, the original artwork that animates its hallways and suites and its skipping distance to renowned theatres and starred restaurants all confirm the hotel’s decidedly cosmopolitan locale.

Highlights:

  • Rooftop bar with a view

  • Friendly local vibe

  • Steps from Lincoln Park

In the know

Also need to know:

In addition to the hotel’s fitness centre, guest passes are available for the nearby Equinox Athletic Club for a fee.Grab your trainers for a staff-led trail run along the shores of Lake Michigan. Or, let someone else do the legwork when you take a scenic pedi-cab ride around the neighbourhood.

Packing tips:

With acres of inviting green space just steps away, have a picnic blanket handy for an afternoon spent contemplating the clouds.

Dress code:

Cosmopolitan casual: gussy up designer jeans with pumps and classic bucks. Leave baseball caps and well-worn sneakers behind.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

One Monday evening, gathering everything I would ever need for a long-haul holiday, I loaded up the car (ignoring the soft cry of our leaf springs) eager to get on the road at 6.15. I set off into the waning sunlight and arrived at my destination. 15 minutes later.

I’m not usually one to stay local. When it comes to taking time off of work, it had better be for something irrational, inconvenient and impractical. I want to trek across Morocco on an unruly camel. Or venture to a remote fishing village off the coast of Ireland, and live in a stone cottage with no running water or neighbors who’

Dining information

Restaurant:

Award-winning chef Paul Virant is behind both Elaine’s Coffee Call (named for the switchboard operator who hooked David Mamet up with his caffeine when he called the hotel home) and Perennial Virant restaurants. Sink into to one of the artfully mismatched couches with a strong cup of La Colombe coffee and a homemade fruit-studded scone at vintage-chic Elaine’s. Chef Virant’s strict adherence to farm-to-table and seasonal fare is evident in both his hearty breakfast and more refined dinner menus. This is no fad devotion, though; Virant is a dedicated canner and the many pickled items – from summer beans to ramp relish – are his specialties.

 

Top table:

The chummy communal tables in the heart of this open room are perfect for groups, or if you’re looking to chat up new friends. Slide into one of the high-backed banquettes that line the room and take in the action from a more private nook.

Last orders:

Elaine’s Coffee Call is open from 6:30am to 5pm. Perennial Virant does weekday breakfast from 6:30am to 10:30am, weekend brunch from 10am to 2pm and dinner nightly until 10pm on weekdays, 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Last call at J Parker is 1am.

Room service:

Perennial Viant’s changing seasonal menu is available for room service from 6:30am to 10:30 am and from 5:00pm to 10:00pm.

Hotel bar:

No matter the season, J Parker draws a well-heeled local crowd to take in the flawless Lake Michigan and shining skyline views from its elegant 12th-floor perch. Nibble on inventive small plates from Chef Virant and sip smooth, potent specialty concoctions like the Lazenby – a mix of Beefeater gin, Lillet Blanc and Death’s Door Vodka.
