Notes: Built by entrepreneurs Hyatt R. von Dehn and Jack D. Crouch, the first Hyatt House Hotel opened in December 1954 next to the Los Angeles International Airport. With 149 rooms, the hotel catered largely to business executives, providing luxurious suites, food services and free limousine services to and from the airport. The Hyatt House Hotels were billed as "the world's first fly-in hotel," a concept attributed to Jack D. Crouch.
In September 1957, businessman Jay Pritzker purchased the Los Angeles Hyatt House from Hyatt R. von Dehn and continued to partner with Crouch until 1965. The chain extended to other California locations, including San Francisco, San Jose, Palo Alto and Salinas – and airport locations outside of California, including Seattle (opened in 1960), WA and Chicago, IL. The Hyatt-House chain was the predecessor to the Hyatt Corporation. Known today at the Global Hyatt Corporation, the hotel company owns more than 700 hotels and resorts worldwide.
