A 27-story 500-room Hilton Hotel is nearing completion in the Pacific port city of Portland, Oregon. The 500 guest rooms are in a 22-story tower which rises above a five-story base housing the public areas. There are panoramic views of the Willamette River, Mount Hood and other peaks of the Cascades from the upper floors. The hotel will provide the newest convention facilities in the Pacific Northwest. Scheduled for opening near the end of the year is The Kahala Hilton. Honolulu's newest luxury hotel is located on a six-acre leased site adjacent to the Waialae Country Club. The 300-room ocean front property is located east of Diamond Head, about three miles from Waikiki. The 1,200-room San Francisco Hilton is now expected to be completed in mid-1964. The 18-story structure is located downtown, adjacent to the airport bus terminal. Parking will be available next to the guest rooms on the fourth through the tenth floors as well as in a 350-car underground garage. The 1,200-room Washington Hilton in the nation's capital is a joint venture with Uris Buildings Corporation. The eight-story hotel will have a resort flavor in the midst of a large city because of its landscaped gardens, tennis courts and heated swimming pool with cabanas. When opened late next year it will be able to accommodate large conventions. The hotel is situated in the Temple Heights section of Washington, about one mile from the White House. The Kansas City Hilton Inn was opened on August 10, 1962. It is being managed under a 20- year contract. Hilton does not lease or own the seven-story 189-room inn and has no investment in the project. The Inn's owners, recognizing Hilton's leadership in the operation of hotels, contracted for its management services. The inn is near downtown and the airport. Private meeting and function rooms accommodate up to 360 persons. Hilton also has signed a 20-year management contract for the operation of a motor hotel in Worcester, Massachusetts, which will be owned by local interests. Ground was broken for the project in late 1962. The $6,000,000 ten-story building will be located in the heart of the business district. The hotel will contain 250 guest rooms.
