Wikipedia page about the Tremont House

Ira Couch (1806–1857) moved to Chicago from New York City with his brother James Couch (1800–1892) in 1836. After operating a store together for a year, they leased the Tremont House at Lake Street and Dearborn Street, and the brothers became innkeepers.

Although the original building burned down, they ran several subsequent hotels that used the Tremont name.
