SHERMAN, Texas (KTEN) — A new hotel is in the planning stages for the south side of Sherman.

The city's Planning and Zoning Commission approved plans for a SpringHill Suites by Marriott hotel along West Travis Street in the Sherman Crossroads development.

"You know how many hotels don't have open rooms right now that I've tried to get in that I need, that I can't do?" asked Sherman resident Calyssa Morin. "Yeah, because we need more hotels. It's just constantly growing, and I feel like we will eventually get to Dallas and McKinney level."

The city hopes to approve more hotels in the city's southern sector over the next 5 to 10 years. They also want to see development of a grocery store and more formal dining restaurants at the Crossroads development in the future.
