Best Hotels Near Baseball Stadiums
1. The Rally Hotel
Where: Denver, CO
Practically a baseball’s throw from Coors Field, The Rally Hotel made its debut in spring 2021 just ahead of the All-Star Game that was hosted in Denver. Subtle design details throughout the hotel are a nod to America’s pastime, from red baseball stitching on leather banquettes to grass green carpet in the hallways that lead to the guest rooms that are numbered in a stadium font—the whole hotel is like a game of sports I-Spy. A Rockies Hall of Fame exhibit is coming soon, but, until then, there’s plenty of team memorabilia in the lobby and a two-story kinetic sculpture by the check-in desk with baseballs moving through the chutes. Before heading to the game, pop into the Rally Bar for mini corndogs you can dunk in honey-mustard and a vodka cocktail made with butterfly pea flower that turns your drink a Rockies shade of purple.

2. Live! by Loews — St. Louis
Where: St. Louis, MO
Artwork and baseball relics narrate Cardinal’s history at Live! by Loews — St. Louis, a 216-room hotel that was built on the former site of the 1966 Busch II Stadium. Abstract blueprints of the former stadium adorn headboards in suites while Cardinal-red travel trunks from the team’s use during the Prohibition era glimmer on the walls of Bar Bourbon. The hotel is an anchor of Ballpark Village, a buzzy entertainment district adjacent to Busch Stadium, so the game day excitement is definitely palpable here. We should mention that Live! by Loews is also for whiskey lovers: The Whiskey Room boasts a list of 480 bottles of bourbon, rye, Irish, scotch, and Japanese whiskies in an intimate space.

3. Hotel Zachary
Where: Chicago, Ill.
The hotel’s namesake Zachary Taylor Davis is considered one of the most influential Chicago architects, and he was hired in 1914 to design Weeghman Park, which would later be re-named Wrigley Field. Davis (considered the Frank Lloyd Wright of baseball architects) was one of the first to design ballparks with steel-beam and concrete instead of wood. Guests at Hotel Zachary are spoiled with panoramic views of Wrigleyville and Wrigley Field, and the hotel offers an “Architecture of Baseball” package that comes with an architectural tour of Wrigley Field, which is a National Historic Landmark. Hotel rooms and spaces are imbued with Chicago’s baseball heritage, with ivy-green headboards, pinstripe carpet, historical photographs and rare Wrigley Field memorabilia.
