Mesa Independent Publisher, Greg Tock, attended the March 27 Chicago Cubs-White Sox spring training game at Sloan Park, 2330 W. Rio Salado Parkway, in Mesa, before getting a tour of the new Sheraton hotel in the same area.
The hotel, adjacent to the ballpark, invited guests and media to a “hard hat” tour.
The Sheraton Mesa Hotel at Wrigleyville West is set to open to Thursday, April 9. There will be two restaurants, a pool bar and a full-service Starbucks, according to the Sheraton Mesa website.
The area along Rio Salado road near loops 101 and 202, which are made up of Sloan Park and the Sheraton Mesa Hotel, has been dubbed Wrigleyville West.
During the spring training game between the two Chicago teams had a record-breaking attendance of 15,342 patrons.
