Top Reasons to Stay at the 4-Star Hotel Lincoln
- Situated 2 miles north of the Loop, the 1920s-era Hotel Lincoln overlooks the famed Lincoln Park and its namesake zoo. Lake Michigan’s beaches are just a couple of blocks away.
- Its boutique-style guest rooms were recently refurbished with eclectic, chic accoutrements, including original art from local artists, flat-screen TVs, and WiFi. Floors 9–12 offer scenic skyline and lake views—the hotel's website says watching the sun rise over the lake is a “near-religious experience.”
- The hotel has a colorful history. It once housed a Prohibition-era speakeasy, and previous guests range from Al Capone to playwright David Mamet.
- Named one of the Top 10 Rooftop Bars in Chicago by Chicago magazine, The J. Parker affords 360-degree views of the city from the hotel’s 13th floor. When the weather is warm, enjoy signature cocktails on the outdoor patio.
- Chef Paul Virant, recipient of a Michelin star, helms the farm-to-table onsite restaurant, Perennial Virant. Entrees include lamb stroganoff and rainbow trout.
- Hotel Lincoln is within walking distance of the Lincoln Park Zoo and just a short "L" ride away from Wrigley Field, Second City, and other iconic Chicago attractions.
Chicago’s Lincoln Park: Historic, Upscale Neighborhood Along Lake Michigan
A fashionable enclave 2 miles north of the Loop, Lincoln Park is known for its historic brownstones, quaint boutiques and cafés, and tree-lined boulevards. The neighborhood is perhaps most famous for its namesake park, which sprawls across 1,200 acres adjacent to Lake Michigan. Here, joggers and bicyclists frequent the paved pathway that runs parallel to the shoreline. When it’s warm, North Avenue Beach attracts a flurry of activity from swimmers, sunbathers, and beach-volleyball players.
Another must-see attraction is the Lincoln Park Zoo, which dates back to the 1870s, when park commissioners bought their first animal inhabitant, a bear cub, for $10. Today, the zoo—open daily and free to the public—houses more than 1,200 animals, including gorillas, bears, giraffes, tortoises, and pythons. Just outside the zoo’s entrance, the Lincoln Park Conservatory showcases tropical palms, ferns, and orchids. Formal outdoor gardens bloom brilliantly each spring.
Just around the corner, the Chicago History Museum has thousands of artifacts, manuscripts, and photographs that detail the city’s colorful history. Check out the Lincoln’s Chicago exhibit, which profiles the 16th president’s frequent visits to the Windy City. Vivian Maier’s Chicago shows a grittier side of local urban life in the ‘60s and ‘70s.

The Groupon Guide to: Victorian Housekeeping
Victorian England was a truly innovative time, and many of their practices are still used today. Give your home a timeless feel with these useful Victorian housekeeping tips:
One is advised to keep a hedgehog in one’s kitchen to track and consume winged pests. He should be given a ceremonial hat and epaulets and thusly referred to as one’s kitchen soldier.
When polishing one’s bronzed baby teeth and statues of weeping seraphim, one must never wipe in the vulgar counterclockwise motion.
Cleanse a room with fire should anyone have committed nudity in it.
Ease your toils by apprehending a passing waif and attach soaped mops to his stalwart feet. Then inform him that this Christmas he shall receive a portion of sweet meats. His excited dances will clean all that surrounds him. Once done have the police escort him to the debtors' prison.
Only tears of genuine repentance shall remove any stains from spilt food.
