Visitors coming to Chicago to attend a Cubs game often want to stay close to the stadium, and if your main purpose for visiting is to explore the area around Wrigley Field, this is a good option.
However, there aren’t as many hotels in this area, and thanks to a cheap and efficient public transportation system, it’s easy to get from the downtown area to Wrigleyville, so staying in this area isn’t a necessity and in fact if you plan on exploring Chicago, it makes more sense to stay at a hotel near Michigan Avenue. But, if you want to stay at a hotel near Wrigley Field, here are a few options.
Best Western Hawthorne Terrace – Located on Broadway between Addison and Belmont, the Best Western Hawthorne Terrace is less than a 10-minute walk from the ballpark. It’s close to lots of shops and restaurants; the Red Line is nearby and multiple bus routes run up and down the street.
Days Inn Chicago – The Days Inn is situated on the north end of Lincoln Park, on Clark at Belmont. From here, guests have easy access to the Lakefront, Lincoln Park, and lots of dining and drinking options. It takes about 10-15 minutes to walk to Wrigley Field from the hotel.
