San Francisco, June 5 -- Chicago's eclectic new alternate for overnight stays and private events, Hotel Lincoln (1816 N. Clark St.) welcomes meeting planners to explore its unique combination of spacious accommodations and seasonally-driven catering program for their 2012-2013 gatherings needs.
Whether organizing an urban corporate retreat, family reunion "staycation", or intimate pre-wedding gathering, groups who make Hotel Lincoln their "home away from home" will enjoy 1,000 square-feet of flexible meeting space in the refreshing environment of Chicago's famed Lincoln Park neighborhood, where locally-owned businesses, world-class restaurants, and exciting attractions replace the concrete backdrop so often associated with meetings in major metropolises.

- Rooms with a View. Affording views of Lincoln Park, Lake Michigan, and downtown Chicago's skyline from every window, Hotel Lincoln's event rooms allow attendees to enjoy vibrant visuals while focusing on the task at hand, whether it be mapping out a company's annual forecast or helping a bride prepare for her big day.
