Where to stay near Wrigley Field
This is a Best Western? You'll swear this Boystown spot is a boutique hotel, from its patio seating out front (great for people-watching) to its cute rooms and dog-friendly policy. Take advantage of its tiny gym (or go running on the nearby lakefront path), free continenteal breakfast and wifi, and adjacent indoor parking garage. Close to Wrigleyville and Lincoln Park.
This 45-room boutique hotel in a part-gentrified, part-bohemian neighborhood is right next to the Belmont El station, from where it’s a mere 15-minute train ride to downtown. Walk four blocks north, meanwhile, and you’ll be at Wrigley Field. The hotel itself has an appealing art deco feel, and its spotless suites include a sleeper sofa, an armchair and a spacious workstation. *High-speed internet (free wireless).
You can't sleep closer to Wrigley unless you roll out a sleeping bag in left field. This seven-room inn, topped with a rooftop overlooking the ballpark, is across the street from Wrigley, which has its pluses (convenience, obviously) and minuses (noise from Wrigley, noise from the adjacent El tracks, noise from the drunks). The gorgeous one- to four-bedroom suites all have kitchens, living rooms, in-unit washer-dryers and memory-foam mattresses.
If you're looking to spend a lot of time in Wrigleyville, Boystown or Lincoln Park, the Majestic Hotel is a prime location. What looks on the outside like a typical Chicago apartment building is a cozy hotel on the inside, styled like a "classic London estate," says the hotel's website (a bit hyperbolically). Free afternoon cookies, wi-fi, coffee, tea and breakfast are some of the many perks here.
The rooms are tiny at this quirky 10-room hotel, but you can't beat the Lakeview location near the Belmont El stop, Wrigley Field, Boystown, Lincoln Park and more. Some rooms don't have bathrooms (you'll share with other guests), and others have small private bathrooms. There's a free continental breakfast, wifi, and a basement "speakeasy" bar open on Friday and Saturday nights.
This eight-room Victorian gueshouse, built in 1892, is a beautiful hideaway in the thick of Boystown. Three upstairs rooms share a bath, and the main floor and garden-level rooms have private baths—all have diferent decor themed to design eras (Art Deco) and styles (Moroccan). There's a free continental breakfast and free wifi.
