Chicago Hotel Information

Finding a hotel in downtown Chicago for under $250 per night on a weekend? That’s tough. But if you are coming in to town, we feel we have found a great deal for you that gives you a great price for a downtown hotel experience, a top hotel, a great location, and easy access to the ballpark. We’ve enjoyed hotel rooms from both the city and suburb in hosting our Scholars Program games and sometimes select a suburban hotel because we cannot find a deal that would appeal to many traveling families on a budget, with downtown hotels offering us discounted rates at more than $200 or $250. We’re happy to offer you a downtown experience this year.
