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.
