CHICAGO—Hyatt Hotels Corporation has reached a brand milestone with the opening of the 100th Hyatt House hotel: Hyatt House San Jose Airport. The newly built airport hotel is jointly owned by Liberty Group and Hyatt Hotels.

Located adjacent to the Norman Y.

Downtown San Jose is five miles from the hotel, where guests can enjoy a number of attractions, including California’s Great America amusement park, Levi’s Stadium, San Jose McEnery Convention Center, Avaya Stadium, and SAP Center at San Jose.

“We are thrilled to be the Hyatt House brand’s one-hundredth hotel and to bring a new and dynamic guest experience to the San Jose marketplace for both business and personal occasion travelers,” said General Manager John McEntee. “With more than 15 million passengers traveling through SJC in 2019, we’re confident Hyatt House San Jose Airport will provide guests with a comfortable stay experience before embarking on the next leg of their journey.”

The 165-room property includes 113 apartment-style Kitchen Suites with fully equipped kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms. The hotel offers additional amenities like free WiFi throughout the hotel and guestrooms; the Commons, a comfy lobby lounge with an open space for guests to relax, work, or socialize; the Outdoor Commons, which includes a fire pit and BBQ grill; a 24-hour workout room; Gathering Rooms with more than 1,800 square feet of flexible meeting or event spaces, a food and beverage menu, audiovisual equipment, and a House Host; Borrows Menu with often-forgotten items from phone charges to razors and extended-stay extras like blenders and laundry baskets; 24-hour guest laundry; and a free hotel shuttle to and from SJC and companies within a three-mile radius.
