The Old Chicago Inn is one of the closest lodging facilities to historic Wrigley Field, which is almost like having Baseball in our backyard. Each season the neighborhood buzzes with the energy and excitement of the ball park. Last week’s opening week activities were no exception. We were delighted to see some returning guests for Opening Day again this year.
For those of you traveling to the Inn in the coming weeks we look forward to hosting you. Whether your coming for the first time or you stayed with us before; and whether you coming to cheer on the Cubs or following your team on the road, we want you to feel at home. During baseball season the Old Chicago Inn has some added amenities for our guests. We offer free shuttle service to Wrigley Field (in conjunction with our sister business Trader Todd’s). If you need tickets to a game at Wrigley be sure and check with your innkeeper. We have ticket packages available to many games this season at reasonable prices.
Every home game your innkeeper David will post the game times in the lobby and the weather forecast for the day. If you left your umbrella at home, just ask, we have a few extras available for guests to use. We also have a limited number of stadium blankets for those cold day games early in the season.
If you want to gear up in style we recommend shopping at Wrigleyville Sports. Wrigleyville Sports expanded there store at the corner of Sheffield and Addison, doubling their size over the winter. They have a great selection of wearables, accessories and novelties. We stopped in opening week and bought a cool little camera bag emblazoned with the Cubs logo of course. The folks at Wrigleyville Sports are helpful and nice. Be sure and ask David for a coupon good for 10% off merchandise if you plan on shopping there.
