MCKINNEY, TX—Expanding its portfolio in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metropolitan area, Sheraton will open a new 186-room hotel here, which will be connected to a 20,000-sq.-ft. events center. Both properties are slated to open in February 2015.

The City of McKinney and the McKinney Community Development Corp. (MCDC) are teaming up with Champ Hospitality and Beck Development to build the $38-million Sheraton McKinney Hotel.

After spending $6 billion to revitalize the brand, Sheraton is now in the midst of the largest growth spurt in its history, with $8 billion invested in new hotel developments over the next three years,” stated Allison Reid, SVP/North American Development for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.
