Penny Pritzker, the billionaire hotel heiress, has been confirmed as President Obama's choice to head up the Commerce Department. Pritzker's family owns the Hyatt Hotel chain, and she has been a board member of the company. Pritzker has an estimated net worth of $1.8511 billion USD and is the world's 651st wealthiest person.
Where will she stay until she finds a permanent spot in DC (if she doesn't already own one?) May we suggest Park Hyatt Washington, (pictured left)?
