Chicago White Sox
No matter how you measure it Chicago sports fans are diehards and, typically, they stay unified behind their favorite teams. The one exception, of course, is Major League Baseball. When it comes to the MLB Chicago is a city divided, with both the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox claiming half of an otherwise united all-for-Chicago sports mentality. While our hotel lies closer to Guaranteed Rate Field – the stomping grounds of the Chicago White Sox – fans for both Windy City teams can be found everywhere. During your stay with the University of Chicago La Quinta Inn and Suites you will undoubtedly notice your fair share of both Cubs and Sox gear and apparel as you walk the streets of The Windy City. If you happen to be visiting during baseball season while the Sox are playing a home game, be sure to schedule an afternoon or evening to catch America’s Pastime live in action. If you are really lucky, your stay may coincide with one of Guaranteed Rate Field’s regular specialty nights.
Each baseball season, the Chicago White Sox host a myriad of fun themed games for those in attendance. From heritage nights celebrating Polish, Italian, Greek, and Hispanic culture to pop culture nights honoring everyone from rock stars to superheroes to specialized style and fashion nights, these games always add a little extra fun to a day at the ballpark.
Family nights are a highlight of each baseball season at Guaranteed Rate Field. Featuring discounted tickets as low as $5, kid-friendly activities throughout the stadium, and the chance to go on the field after the game is over family nights with the White Sox have been a long-loved Chicago tradition.
White Sox vs. Cubs
While Chicago fans generally root for the same teams, the White Sox vs. Cubs games each season paint a very different picture. With nothing but bragging rights on the line, one in attendance would think each team was playing for a World Series title! Each year these teams square off for one series at Wrigley Field and one at Guaranteed Rate Field – allowing both Chicago teams some extra home field advantage and the chance to show why they are the city’s best MLB franchise.
Whether you are visiting the University of Chicago La Quinta Inn & Suites because there is a home baseball game at Guaranteed Rate Field or it just so happens to be a happy coincidence, don’t miss your chance to watch the White Sox live. Any home baseball game in Chicago promises to be a great time, but if you are lucky enough your stay may align with the additional bonus of a White Sox specialty night.
