Stay at a B&B, Guesthouse or Hotel near Wrigley Field

Attending a Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field is a time-honored tradition for many families, even if they’re not die-hard baseball or Cubs fans. While staying in downtown Chicago is an option, staying closer can be just as much fun because you’ll be staying in some of Chicago’s most vibrant neighborhoods.

Traditional hotels are harder to come by since Wrigley Field is in Wrigleyville but there is a Days Inn Chicago very close to the field. Fun little tidbit about this hotel: it was once called the"Rock and Roll Days Inn" because it hosted famous rock stars and bands including Sheryl Crow, Kurt Cobain, Alanis Morissette, Dave Mathews, Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. 

But since Chicago is a city of neighborhoods and Wrigley Field is within a neighborhood, you’re more likely to find quaint boutique hotels like the Inn at Lincoln Park or Roscoe Village Guest House (which is great for larger groups or families who are looking for more of a home than a hotel).

The lakefront trail is close to Wrigley Field but if the weather doesn’t allow you to enjoy a workout outdoors, hotels such as the Majestic and The Willows provide workout privileges to nearby by fitness facilities.

If driving, make sure to pay attention to parking restrictions which go into overdrive during Chicago Cubs games.
