The new Hotel Lincoln is a window to the most dynamic part of Chicago's North Side, Lincoln Park.
Like the neighborhood, the hotel is historic yet fresh, fun though eccentric and active but relaxed. It's where the energy of urban life meets 1,200 green acres and Lake Michigan.

Give the traditional gift of flowers this Mother's Day
with a modern - and more permanent - twist!
The mother, super-woman, or mentor in your life deserves more than a wilting bouquet the week after her special day. Give her the lasting gift of a beautiful blooming tree or native perennial plants that will be planted in her name at the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool - Lincoln Park's only landscape with National Historic Landmark status. Or, adopt a water lily - the namesake plant of the Lily Pool.
Each spring its native plants burst forth - whether it's the delicate lavender blooms of its Redbud trees, the drooping corolla of American Columbine, or masses of Nodding Wild Onion, the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool is a wonder to behold. Tens of thousands of visitors flock to the site from the country each year to witness its seasons.
Designed in 1936 by landscape designer, Alfred Caldwell (1903-1998), this beautiful place provides a welcoming sanctuary of quiet amid the bustle of the big city with its waterfall, limestone paths, council ring, and Prairie School style pavilion and entry gate.
