Transcript -~< \ International Growth V Hilton Hotels International, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary, substantially enlarged its sphere of operations in 1957 and laid the groundwork for even greater growth in the current year. On November 1, 1957, El Panama Hilton in Panama, Republic of Panama, became the fifth Hilton Hotel in operation outside the continental limits of the United States. This hotel is being^ operated under a long term agreement under which the company supplies know-how and working capital and operates the hotel in return for a percentage of the profits. El Panama Hilton, containing 272 rooms, was planned to permit ready expansion to 400 or 500 rooms. It is surrounded by fifteen acres of tropical gardens overlooking the Pacific. Among its luxurious facilities are a swimming pool, cabanas, tennis courts, golf greens, a night club, restaurants and shops. Two fishing cruisers are provided for the convenience of sports-minded guests. The new 100 room garden wing of the fabulous Caribe Hilton was dedicated on December 7, 1957, the eighth anniversary of this modern luxuriously appointed hotel. The garden wing is a separate seven-story, fully air conditioned building located between the hotel and historic Fort San Geronimo. It is connected to the main building by a covered garden walk, bordered by shops, and rises above a landscaped garden. Each of the hotel's 403 rooms has a balcony overlooking the ocean. On March 22nd, Cuba's newest and finest hotel, the Habana Hilton, will be formally opened. Built at a cost of $24,000,000, this 630 room hotel is the largest and tallest hotel building in Latin America, soaring thirty stories over the center of Havana's most fashionable business area. This hotel features a large swimming pool with cabanas and extensive landscaped outdoor areas capturing the tropical atmosphere of Cuba and through wide use of native woods, coral and volcanic stone, harmonizes with the existing architecture of Havana. Dedication ceremonies on April 15th are planned for the largest of the Hilton International hotels, The Queen Elizabeth in Montreal. This hotel, owned by the Canadian National Railways and costing $24,000,000, comprises 1216 rooms. It will be the largest hotel in the British Commonwealth. The $6,000,000, 350 room Berlin Hilton, the first hotel to be built in Berlin since World War II, will be opened later this year. Other hotels under construction are the Nile Hilton in Cairo, Egypt and the Acapulco Hilton in Acapulco, Mexico. Under lease and in the planning stage are Hilton Hotels in Baghdad, Iraq; Athens, Greece; Vienna, Austria and Port of Spain, Trinidad. Preliminary agreements have been signed for hotels to be built and operated in Rome, Italy; Tokyo, Japan; Bangkok, Thailand; London, England; Beirut, Lebanon; Amsterdam and Rotterdam, Netherlands. 12 > C:V cx -i
