closest airport to Wrigley?

Hi! We're planning a trip to Indiana in Sept. but we're also thinking of going to a Cub game before heading down to Indy. So we're wondering, which airport is closer to Wrigley - Midway or O'Hare? We've never flown in or out of either one.

We'll also need to rent a car for our trip down to Indy. And a hotel room for the night in the Chicago area. We have been there one other time and stayed just a few blocks from the ballpark, within easy walking distance. I can't remember the name of the hotel though. It's been about 7-8 years.

Any thoughts, advice are greatly appreciated. Oh, we would be flying in on a Friday in order to see a Sat. game at the end of Sept.

O'Hare is closest to Wrigley.

You might find better hotel rates by staying in Rosemont. It's just outside of O'Hare. You can take a train & bus to get to Wrigley. You can pick up your car at O'Hare on your way out to Indy.

If you just need a nice, clean hotel to sleep and shower at I'd recommend City Suites Hotel. It's right next to the train if you need and a very short walk from Wrigley. We were just in town last week for one night to catch an afternoon game & we thought City Suites was perfect for our needs. We walked home after the game and cleaned up then headed down Clark St to try some area resturants. We found several choices and wished we had more time to try them all. FYI-we flew in at O'Hare then took the blue line to Addison to catch the CTA bus over to Wrigleyville. I would recommend grabbing a cab rather that taking the bus-it took quite a bit of time to get over to the stadium area. We took a cab to the blueline on Belmont when we left to avoid any delays.
