 Hyatt Hotels & Resorts last week officially debuted the Hyatt House brand, the company’s new extended-stay flag. There are 53 Hyatt House hotels across the U.S., following signage changes at all Hyatt Summerfield Suites properties, as well as the 15 Hotel Sierra properties the company acquired last year. Signature services of the new brand include “house hosts,” who will acquaint guests with the hotel and the neighborhood; suites that include kitchen facilities and a living room area; a welcoming lounge; and free high-speed Internet access in all suites and public areas. See for a complete list of properties.
