Shaping Southern California since 1905
In 1905, Frank H. Ayres took a $2 train ride from Ohio to California with his wife and young son, Donald Sr, to explore land development opportunities for his employer. Eventually, Frank H. Ayres formed a company of his own and continued to develop land throughout Los Angeles County.
The Ayres Family continued to expand, venturing into residential and commercial real estate. In the roaring ’20s, the Ayres began homebuilding and developed single family home sites, apartments and commercial units in the Pico/Robertson areas. It was then that the Ayres’ brand of high-quality property development made its mark on Southern California.
In the mid-1950’s, the son of Don Ayres Sr, Don Ayres Jr, joined the firm to perpetuate the family tradition and brought along foresight, versatility and innovative thinking that eventually led to the development of the first Ayres Hotel in the early ’80s. Now, the Ayres Family owns, operates and manages 24 hotels and resorts in Southern California.
Over the past century, the Ayres Family has established a reputation of excellence through five generations of commitment and innovation. Their cross-industry experience has provided a unique, perspective that has allowed the Ayres to successfully diversify their portfolio in land, residential and commercial real estate. As the Ayres Family looks towards the future, they remain committed to the core values that have been essential for a thriving business.
