Thinking about coming for the Cubs series first week of June. May stay at the Ren. Is there anything else in the neighborhood worth checking out. I seem to remember a chain hotel that folks said was real close to the ball park....thanks.... 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-)

Hi AZ--

My friends (who you met last year at Angels Stadium) and I often stay at the Spring Hill Suites right across the street from the stadium. It's very nice with a bar (The Soho) that sometimes players visit after the games.

Wife and I stayed there in 2010 and it was great. Nice accommodations, easy walking distance to PNC.

Well I got a little ahead of myself there. I checked flights and I am afraid that $500 plus is bit high for my budget. Mrs. AZBF and I will be going to beautiful San Diego for the series June 2-3-4. Perhaps the west coast chapter can plan another meeting........thanks for the info though, will keep it for future reference.... 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-)

Used to make an annual pilgrimage to Jack Murphy and always loved it there. Have not been to Petco so that will be fun. SD is just the best and we can get some deep sea fishing in to boot..... 8-) 8-) 8-)

Last year, after our stop in Anaheim, we went down to San Diego. Petco is really a beautiful park. We were treated very well by the stadium staff. Like at Angels Park, they wanted to be sure that we enjoyed our Petco experience.

There are many hotels in the stadium area. A Marriott is right across the street. I think we stayed at a Marriott Courtyard just around the corner. It was a wonderful visit.

Definitely works for me. Arizona is also in the running, July 1-3. That would be more convenient for Corsair, no?
