By Amalia Otet, Associate Editor
Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. plans to open a 180-key Sheraton in Mesa, adjacent to the Chicago Cubs’ new spring training ballpark. Owned and developed by River View Hotel, L.L.C. and operated by Power Hotels, L.L.C., the Sheraton Mesa Hotel is scheduled to open in March 2015. The hotel will be Starwood’s first property in Mesa and the sixth Sheraton in metropolitan Phoenix.
The hotel will be located near Cubs Park at Wrigleyville West, the team’s brand-new, 15,000-seat stadium. While catering to sports travelers and baseball fans, the hotel will also aim to meet the demand for high-quality lodging and conference space. “We look forward to offering Cubs fans and travelers a stylish, comfortable atmosphere where they can make connections and enjoy all the brand’s signature amenities and services,” said Hoyt Harper, global brand leader for Sheraton Hotels & Resorts.
The Sheraton Mesa will offer more than 30,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and function space. Guest room amenities will include an oversized desk, high-speed Internet, a 42-inch flat-panel television and the all-white Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed, designed to meet AAA’s Five Diamond Award criteria.
Hotel amenities include two full-service restaurants, indoor and outdoor bars, a resort-style outdoor swimming pool, a fitness facility, and Link@Sheraton, a casual lobby space providing complimentary wireless broadband service. The hotel will be walking distance from the Mesa Riverview shopping center and minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, the Mesa Convention Center and Arizona State University.
The new Sheraton hotel is part of the Riverview redevelopment project, which spans 170 acres and will provide venues for sports, recreational, cultural, and public events.
