Watching The Pirates Play Ball From The Fairmont Pittsburgh

We are suckers for a room with a killer view.  We find that we are even more likely to forgive some minor hotel inconveniences if we can stare out the window at something pretty--yeah we are that shallow. Let's help out our fellow hotel mavens by uploading rooms with killer views to the HotelChatter/Flickr photo pool, or by sending the photo along to us. We will feature our favorites in this space from time to time. Remember to tell us the name of the hotel and the room number of the hot view.

Don't you love cities where the sports stadiums are right downtown? It makes getting to the game easier and creates a much stronger sense of camaraderie among the fans. If the city is Pittsburgh, it also means you can get a great view of the ball park from your room at the Fairmont Pittsburgh.

During our stay last weekend, our room was on the other side of the building, facing Mount Washington. Which is also a pretty view. But we snapped this shot from the floor-to-ceiling window in the elevator bank area on the 17th floor.

Hyatt Might Step Up to the Plate for New Chicago Hotel Near Wrigley Field

May 26, 2010 at 8:48 AM | by | Comments (0)

The eight-story hotel will sit back from the rest of the building.

When we last heard about Chicago's Wrigleyville Hotel, officials predicted the boutique property near Wrigley Field would open during the Cubs' spring season, but it looks like we'll have to sit through extra innings until the hotel is built.

An official said the hotel is still going through the approval process, but when it gets the okay, it will take 18 to 24 months to complete construction. Another new development is that Hyatt has expressed interest in managing the 137-room hotel, which is part of Addison Park on Clark, a development that also includes retail outlets and apartments that's a block from the ballpark.

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.

A couple seasons ago, we gave you a pretty comprehensive look at all the hotels near MLB stadiums — but this one, excuse the atrocious pun, is sort of the Grand Slam of MLB stadium views.

Behold the view of the baseball field at Toronto's Rogers Centre (formerly known as the SkyDome), home of the Blue Jays, from the Renaissance Toronto Downtown Hotel. No, seriously. This is for reals a view from a room.

Baseball Hotels :: The Liberty Hotel's Red Sox Package

For Red Sox fans only. Yankee fans need not apply.

Wondering what's up with Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz, and Josh Beckett?  Head to Bean-town's Liberty Hotel for their "Swing! Batter, batter!" package.  

This historic hotel is actually a former prison, but you'll be too deeply immersed in baseball heaven to ponder such trivia. Your room will come with a view of the lights of venerable Fenway Park, one of the country's oldest baseball fields, as well as the historic Citgo sign.

World Series 2007: Hotels Near Fenway Park

Click Here to Go Straight to the Hotels Near MLB Stadiums Map

Over the summer, we took a look at some of the best hotels to stay at when in town for a Major League baseball game. Back then it was the perfect summer series for the all-American summer pastime.

But now the World Series is upon us and the Boston Red Sox and the Colorado Rockies will vie for the championships. We already took a look at hotels near Coors Field in Denver so today we present you with a map of hotels near Boston's Fenway Park.

As far as getting a room for the World Series games here , the other day we gave you a list of some Boston Hotel Deals for today and Thursday. Also don't forget that the hotel scene we scoped out back in 2004 is still good to use.

But we're pretty sure that if you are a member of Red Sox nation, you've not only booked your hotel but you know where the coach and team players are staying.

As always, if you Fenway hotel suggestions, well then don't be shy. Let us know.

Good Rate :: Baseball in St. Louis Over Labor Day Weekend

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: One South Broadway at Market Street [map], St. Louis, MO, United States, 63102
August 14, 2007 at 10:35 AM | by | Comments (0)

[Ed. Note: Welcome to our Good Rate/Bad Rate feature where we look at hotel prices in the same city and decide which one most deserves your hard-earned benjamins. Rates quotes here were captured August 13, 2007 and are subject to change. Enjoy.]

Last week Hotwire released its 10 Most Popular Labor Day Weekend Destinations, based on bookings so far through its own site. Once you get past the predictable Chicago, New York, and Atlanta, however, number four is...St. Louis? The press release touted a 3.5 star hotel downtown for $62, but the best we could manage on Hotwire was $162. The Cardinals are in town though, so we're hooking you up with a baseball deal at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark.

This particular Hilton has a range of packages going, but since you can see the baseball field from one side of the hotel, we're highlighting the Grand Slam deal pictured here. For $259 a night you get a ballpark view room, two tickets worth $43 each, and some kind of baseball souvenir schwag.

If you intend to stay the whole long weekend though, we'd suggest going for the Romance Package (for once) instead. For $50 less a night you get a bottle of sparkling wine on arrival and breakfast for two each day. Go buy your own baseball tickets online for one night and you'll come out ahead. Score the right room and maybe you'll be able to watch a second game from your window.

Our MLB Travel map returns! For the rest of the week we will be visiting ballparks across America and determining which hotels are worth a sleepover.

First up is Miller Park, home to the Milwaukee Brewers. There's not a whole lotta hotels near Miller Park so we have picked these hotels for other reasons than proximity. For instance, a cool name like the Pfister Hotel.

So technically, our MLB Travel map was supposed to cover the U.S. but how we can ignore our neighbors to the North? Especially when they have a super ballpark hotel in Toronto at The Renaissance Toronto Hotel Downtown. A tipster informed us that the hotel "has 70 rooms in the outfield of the ex-Sky Dome now Rodgers Centre."

MLB Travel: Ballparks Near Omni Hotels

June 15, 2007 at 1:05 PM | by | Comments (0)

This week we introduced a new feature and a new map called MLB Travel, where we take a look at hotels nearest your favorite team's home turf.

We created maps of hotels and ballparks for Denver, Houston, Phoenix and Cleveland, with more to come throughout the summer.

But for now, if you  are thinking of traveling to see your team somewhere, check to see if there's an Omni Hotel near the ballpark because the hotel chain is doing a summer promotion for ballgames.

Called their "Batter Up" promotion, Omni has put together several baseball packages at different hotels from San Francisco to Chicago to Pittsburgh and to Boston. The rates and details vary at every place and we can't guarantee that the hotels are close to the ballpark (except Omni San Diego) but it's worth a look.

In the meantime, here are our MLB Travel stories from this week:

· Cleveland Indians: Jacobs Field
· Arizona Diamondbacks: Chase Field
· Houston Astros: Minute Maid Park
· Colorado Rockies: Coors Field

And remember, if you got any hotel questions or suggestions or even better, firsthand baseball park hotel reviews, send them here and share them with other MLB fans--even if they are Yankee fans.

MLB Travel: Hotels Near Cleveland's Jacobs Field

The Cleveland Indians made it big (for us, anyways) when the team was featured--with a fictional roster and management--in the movie, Major League. So we had to check out the hotel scene near Jacobs Field. At first, we were mildly disappointed to find that the closest hotel was only a Residence Inn. The second closest hotel was a Hilton Garden Inn.

However, while the Residence Inn hardly acknowledges the ballpark exists, the Garden Inn has a "50 Paces from the Bases" package which includes overnight accommodations, breakfast for two adults, parking for one vehicle, and two bags of peanuts for the game, all for about $124 a night. Of course, game tickets are not included.
