MESA, Ariz. — A Sheraton hotel will be built in the commercial area near the Chicago Cubs' new spring training complex in Mesa.

The Mesa City Council unanimously approved a plan Thursday to build a full-service hotel with 175 rooms and a 12,000-square-foot conference center.

Cubs Park is a 15,000-seat baseball stadium that will host its first Cactus League game on Feb. 27.

The complex includes four baseball fields. Mesa expects to add several mixed-use athletic fields next year.

The city has spent more than $100 million in voter-approved funds for the park and baseball complex.

Mesa officials plan to hold a grand opening for the stadium and park on Jan. 25.
