The Macon Sheraton?

Wow! I learned something new and interesting today.

A while back I reported on the Macon Hotel developers saying they would be building a Sheraton. Then I reported Sheraton had no knowledge of that.

Today I was told that the competing hotel venture has the rights to build a Starwood hotel in Macon so it seems that there was no possible way for there ever to be a Sheraton built on Macon Centroplex property. The question remains: why did they tell everyone it would be a Sheraton when there appears to be no way at all for them to build one, since Sheraton is a Starwood hotel.
