Had high expectations of this hotel in Wrigleyville but was very let down. The main reason appears to be the room I was assigned, right next to the booming beats of the music/games store next door. The music was loud, and I mean REALLY loud, for most of the three days I was there. It only really affected me on the first day as I wanted to sleep after a long flight, and I was offered a room change on the second morning, but didn't take it as I knew I was going to be in much later on the other nights.

Sadly, I then fell ill on the final night and had to stay in the room, with my head banging from the sounds from next door. This continued until well after midnight and I didn't sleep at all before leaving very early in the morning still under the weather.

I was unable to hear the music from the corridor on the second floor so would assume it was better on the other side of the hotel - just my bad luck to end up in one of the bad rooms. The room itself was huge, comfortable and well appointed...just let down by noisy neighbours. I like Wrigleyville as well, close to plenty of entertainment and almost right next door to Belmont Station, 20 minutes to downtown with very regular trains (which ironically I couldn't hear at all!) Breakfast basic but helpful.

Probably would stay here again but would double check my room first.

Recently spent 3 nights at the City Suites Hotel in Chicago. I can't say enough nice things about the staff. We showed up at about 10 AM on Sunday morning and stopped by just to be sure when we could check in. There was a room ready but I asked if it was on the "quiet" side - it wasn't. The clerk told me to come back about 2 and she would have something ready on that side. And it was ready when we returned. The guys on the afternoon/evening desk were also very helpful with things to do in the neighborhood and the best way to get to our appointment in downtown Chicago.

Overall, the place was very clean and tidy. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was clean. The breakfast was nothing spectacular - I didn't expect it to be - but it was adequate. Even the in-room snacks and beverages were decently priced though we didn't take advantage of them. We just walked 2 blocks down the street and loaded up at Walgreens.

Yes, the parking is off-site but it's no more than a 3-4 minute walk. Not really a big deal unless you have health issues or the weather is bad.

My husband and I just returned from a week of baseball and this was a perfect location. The staff was very accomodating, including offering to move us when the Yogurt Shop next door got too loud at night. It's a short 5 blocks (10 minute walk) to Wrigley Field .Try Leona's for great Italian and Sheffield Grill for before or after game food. ALso Ann Sathers for breakfast or the bagel shop next door. The "L" red line is right there - with brown and purple loops connections. If you are going fo a few Cubbie games - could not be a better place. It IS an older hotel, so the bathrooms lack counter space, but the ambience is wonderful.

Room Tip: don't know how loud the "L" is on that side, but Yogurt shop likes to crank music unti...

After we stayed on the first leg of our "Let's go Cubs" Opening Weekend near the Magnificent Mile, we wanted to be closer to the action to watch the final two games.

Enter City Suites Hotel. This hotel is located right next to the Belmont Red Line stop, which is only one stop toward Howard to the Addison stop and Wrigley Field.

This hotel is located near MANY restaurant and bars. Hey, it's Wrigleyville so it's all about having fun (even if the Cubs lose).

The hotel had a very small room, but it worked just fine. The bathroom was a bit better. The front desk was always helpful and upbeat, so that was a plus.

I didn't get to explore Wrigleyville as much as I wanted, but I will be coming back to City Suites the next time I am in town to root for the Cubbies because the area just felt right.

Room Tip: The Red Line trains are 24 hours and the Belmont stop feels safe any time of day. That can't be...

My boyfriend and I went to Chicago for a Cubs game against the Brewers, and decided to stay at City Suites Hotel, because it was so close to Wrigley. As soon as we got to the hotel we felt welcomed! I requested a hotel room on the non-train side, and because there were empty rooms available we got upgraded to a bigger room! The room was very clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the bathroom was very nice. The room was a little small, but that wasn’t a problem for us. They had a continental breakfast in the morning and it was very nice/well presented as well. I was nervous going to Chicago because I have heard horror stories about Cubs fans, and people living in Chicago being mean, and rude, but they were nothing but nice!!! The staff at City Suites Hotel was phenomenal, they were very helpful, and answered any questions we had about Chicago. I would recommend City Suites Hotel to anyone who is staying near Wrigley!!!
