Hyatt Hotels announced the opening of its 1,000th property, the Alila Napa Valley hotel.

The milestone was reached 68 years after the opening of the first Hyatt property, the Hyatt House, a motel near Los Angeles International Airport, in 1953 by Hyatt Robert von Dehn and Jack Dyer Crouch.  The property is considered to be the first airport hotel in the world.

After being acquired by Jay Pritzker in 1957, Hyatt grew into a chain that opened other hotels within several years and the Regency Hyatt House, a model for today’s Hyatt Regency properties, in 1969.  The company introduced the Grand Hyatt and Park Hyatt brands in 1980 and it acquired multiple smaller chains including AmeriSuites (now Hyatt Place), Summerfield Suites (now Hyatt House), Hotel Sierra, and Two Roads Hotels.

The new 68-key property is an adults-only “restorative retreat” that is ensconced in vineyards that are part of the Beringer Estate.  Guest amenities include an outdoor pool, a restaurant that offers seasonal, local, and sustainable menus, and a spa and fitness center.
