San Francisco-based Joie de Vivre Hotels has opened Hotel Lincoln in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood.
The hotel features 184 guestrooms with layouts ranging from studios to family suites outfitted with bunk beds. Each room highlights vibrant colors, art by Marwen and Project Onward, trunk-style faux crocodile nightstands and accent pieces that reflect the property’s proximity to Lincoln Park Zoo. Sixty percent of the rooms offer a direct view of Lake Michigan, while others have views of downtown Chicago.
Chef Paul Virant crafted the in-room dining menu to reflect the seasonal, sustainable dishes served at Perennial Virant on the hotel’s ground floor. Elaine’s Coffee call is a European-style coffee bar off the lobby serving coffee, pastries, light bites and other beverages. In June, Hotel Lincoln will open a rooftop lounge with capacity to accommodate 175 outdoors and up to 75 indoors.
Flexible meeting space on the second floor can accommodate up to 100 people, and the rooftop lounge will serve as potential meeting space as well.
“Hotel Lincoln will serve as a community gathering place, where residents can relax in the heart of their own city, and visitors can enjoy a live-like-a-local experience,” says General Manager Bob Shelley.
