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.

The Hush Sound’s journey began in 2005 in the way most young bands do: as a group of friends playing together in their parent’s basement after high school. Songwriters Bob Morris and Greta Morgan would write their quirky piano and guitar driven pop songs in between Greta’s homework sessions and Bob’s duty as a lifeguard at the local swimming pool. After writing a batch of songs, the two were joined by drummer Darren Wilson and bass player Chris Faller, other locals in the Chicago music scene.
The group began playing shows in suburban basements, VFW Halls, and community theaters soon after. They were only in high school but their lyrics told shrewd truths and their baroque pop melodies spoke to an audience looking for something more; something different than the standard fare of midwestern angst.
The band never dreamt that by the end of that year, they’d be invited to open arena tours across the US, the UK, and Japan and go on to share the stage with artists like OK GO, Phantom Planet, One Republic, The Dresden Dolls and beyond.
