The complete overhaul of this 12-story Lincoln Park hotel (formerly a Days Inn) is Joie de Vivre’s first in Chicago. It offers 184 guest rooms, clever artwork (quirky paintings on a lobby wall were sourced from Lincoln Park yard sales), upscale plates at the Kennison and a coffee shop, Elaine's Coffee Call, featuring La Colombe java. The hotel’s rooftop bar, the J. Parker, is a lively hot spot, offering views of the park and skyline.
Many tourists assume you have to stay in the Chicago Loop or River North neighborhoods to get a true “Chicago experience.” In fact, the opposite is true. When you book a room at Lincoln Park hotels, you get a sense for how Chicagoans live—from the restaurants and bars we go to on the weekends to the coffee shops where we meet up with friends. Plus, when you book these hotels in or near Lincoln Park, you're closer to major Chicago attractions like the Lincoln Park Zoo, DePaul University and the Chicago History Museum.
