If there's one thing Chicago is known for, it's sports.
Whether they're rooting for the Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks, Cubs, or White Sox, Chicago's fans are die-hard. Why not take a trip to Wrigley Field, Guaranteed Rate Field, or one of the other local stadiums and sports venues during your hotel stay?
Home of the Chicago Cubs
Built in 1914 and originally known as Weeghman Park, Wrigley Field is the second oldest park in the majors. The park became Cubs Park in 1920, after it was purchased from the Weeghman family - before finally being named Wrigley Field in 1926 to honor the Cub's owner, William Wrigley Jr. The original scoreboard still works today.
Home of the Chicago Bears
As one of Chicago's most famous landmarks, Soldier Field was designed in 1919 as a memorial to soldiers. Soldier Field is used as a venue for many events but more recently known as the home of the Bears. The Bears moved from their prior location of Wrigley Field in September of 1971 and had their first game in the renovated field on September 29, 2003.
Home of the Chicago Blackhawks and Chicago Bulls
The United Center is considered the largest arena in the country and hosts over 200 events each year. Since its opening in 1994, it has also had over 20 million visitors. It's home to the Chicago Blackhawks hockey team and the Chicago Bulls basketball team and is just over two miles away from our hotel.
Guaranteed Rate Field
Home of the White Sox
The Chicago White Sox have always called the South Side their home, but they've called Guaranteed Rate Field by a few different names over the years. The new Comiskey Park opened in 1991, and features a remarkable scoreboard from the old Comiskey Park (still intact), beautiful arches, and over 40,000 unobstructed-view seats. The ballpark was called Cellular Field from 2003 until 2016, when the current name, Guaranteed Rate Field, was bestowed upon it. Our hotel is less than five miles away.
