Soon beer-filled Cubs fans and hardcore Wrigleyville party people won't have to stumble far to get to a hotel room. The Wrigleyville Hotel is on deck to open in the middle of the practically here spring season.

The boutique property, which marks the first hotel in Wrigleyville, will only be several blocks south from the Friendly Confines at 3469-75 N. Clark St. It's right in the middle of the hopping bars that are post-game drinking destinations and weekend hangouts.

The hotel plans to embrace its Cubs connection. It will mimic Wrigley Field's look with a limestone facade, but there's no word on whether it'll have ivy growing on its five-story exterior. Housed inside the hotel will be a 350-seat restaurant, baseball themed, of course. There also will be a rooftop cafe and bar from which you'll get a nice view of the ballpark. On the inside of the hotel, baseball art will decorate the walls to class up the joint. The biggest perk, however, will be that after the game, you won't have to be packed like a sardine on the El to get to your downtown hotel.

If you want to see if you can hear the rousing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during seventh-inning stretch from your Wrigleyville hotel room, it'll cost $125 to $350 a night.
