The Cubs are moving their winter Convention from the Hilton and Towers in the south Loop to the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers at 301 E. North Water Street.
The move will be the first time the 28-year-old winter gathering won’t be held at the Hilton.
“We’re excited to offer our fans new experiences at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers as Cubs players, coaches, legends and executives come together to kick off the 2013 season,” said Wally Hayward, executive vice president, chief sales and marketing officer of the Cubs.
He did not say why the change was made.
The convention will take place from Jan. 18 to Jan 20. Tickets will be available starting Wednesday. Hotel bookings for $179 per night plus tax can be made by calling the hotel at 800-233-4100 and asking for the Cubs Convention rate. Those who book rooms will be permitted to purchase as many as four convention tickets for $20 each. Tickets for those attending the convention but not staying at the hotel will cost $60 each.
