This was my third stay at the Lincoln Park Guest House, and decided it was time to post a review! We think this is a great value for the $$ spent, and love the location. Have stayed here both for one business trip and two weekend getaways with my wife. Spacious, bright 2-story king room is consistently immaculately clean, like-new, with all the amenities we could need. Also recommend having breakfast a block away at Toast (on W. Webster Ave). We dined at Alinea, one of the top restaurants in the USA. Be sure to book reservations there about 6 weeks in advance. Highly recommend this Inn. Note: There are no meals served on-site, but I was required to post a dining score. Please ignore that. The Inn offers Keurig teas and coffees, juices, breakfast bars and a mini-fridge in each room, but no served meals. There are numerous restaurants that serve breakfast within the immediate area. -- EAS and spouse

From the exterior of this house we had no idea how stunning the two-story high ceiling in the king bedroom and our private foyer were going to look. Bath and linens were very clean and furnishings beautiful throughout the grand house. Very accessible to both bus and metro. It was verrry much worth the value for what we spent. The hospitality really made our stay exceptional. Everything we might have needed, the hosts had already thought of. When we awoke to a big rainstorm, there were two umbrellas set just outside our door which we put to good use, as we’d not brought any because it was winter. We would definitely choose this home away from home again. - A and S Goldman, Austin TX

The room was spotless, spacious and very comfortable. We felt we definitely got more than we paid for. I have to say the furnishings were very high-end beautiful decorated with leather headboard and leather bench at foot of bed, silk draperies, plush seating. This was my first visit to Chicago and I felt at home right away. Overall, I think we were lucky to have snagged reservations at this particular spot and neighborhood and recommended it to our friends who are going there this summer. Transportation was really well for us–-near subway and more than one bus stops. The Chicago CTA system rocks. We had a blast. Carrie & Ed

Came to the city for the weekend to visit our son; picked this place because it was right in the middle of his neighborhood and much more accessible than the downtown hotels. We were really surprised. Beautiful quiet and spacious; we've been to some B&Bs before that did not smell great or were cramped. This was as beautiful as the pictures. Best part--fantastic location. Walked out the door into a beautiful neighborhood full of shopping, restaurants, coffee shops. Just charming.

Location is great, house is beautiful, cozy, big rooms. Love the Anthropologie linens. Quiet and peaceful in the middle of the hussle and bussle of Chicago. Can't wait to come back.
