Wrigleyville is the name given to the neighborhood surrounding Wrigley Field – home of the Chicago Cubs and one of the oldest ballparks in the USA – making it a magnet for sports fans, with lively post-game bars and memorabilia stores. Meanwhile, music fans can catch big-name artists play at the Metro. Whatever your reason for visiting this area of Chicago, there is a superb collection of hotels within walking distance of the Wrigley Field gates, the best of which are found below.

If you want to see the best of Chicago under one roof, you can’t go wrong with Hotel Versey. The decor riffs heavily on the Windy City, with striking work from local artists, Cubs memorabilia and tributes to the area’s jazz and rock heritage scattered throughout the hotel. Rooms are equally Chicago-centric thanks to the statement murals of local attractions, and each one comes with a Nespresso coffee machine and signature duvets. Wrigley Field, Lake Michigan and the Lincoln Park Zoo are all within walking distance.
