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.

It is 1895 in a weather-beaten beach house on Nantucket Island, formerly the center of an idealistic commune. The hopes of this noble experiment have long been destroyed by adultery, murder, and suicide, and now those haunted by the tragedy gather to seek atonement. Moving from comedy to melodrama as it untangles the twisted strands of their lives, the play illuminates both the undying optimism, which underlies the American ethos, and the infecting corruption, which so often can reach beyond its own time to subvert the cherished hopes of the future.
