Sheraton hotel to be built near Wrigley Field

By Danny King
The Ricketts family, owner of the Chicago Cubs, is building a Sheraton hotel across the street from the baseball team's home park, Wrigley Field. 

The hotel will be constructed on property where a McDonald's restaurant and a parking lot currently are.

The hotel is part of an entertainment and retail project. About a half-billion dollars is being invested in upgrades to the neighborhood and ballpark, which was built in 1914.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Sheraton's parent company, will become the Cubs' exclusive hotel partner. Starwood will have a Starwood Preferred Guest luxury suite behind home plate and will run promotions such as seat upgrades and trips to Arizona to see the Cubs during their spring training.
