Transcript dramatic views of the Vatican. The hotel is only 15 minutes by car from the heart of the city and is linked by highway with the new international airport at Fiumicino. Parking for 500 cars is provided in the building. The Rotterdam Hilton is situated in the modern central section of the city, overlooking the Hofplain Square Fountains. Rotterdam is a bustling city and Europe's largest seaport. The hotel is equipped with ample banquet and meeting facilities in addition to distinctive restaurants and bars. The Tokyo Hilton is situated in the heart of Tokyo near the shopping and entertainment district. The 14-story hotel, although Occidental in style, will have a restaurant and some guest rooms in traditional Japanese style, thus bringing together the best of the East and West. The Hong Kong Hilton is located at the junction of Queen's Road Central and Garden Road on the island of Hong Kong. The 26-story hotel will be entirely air-conditioned. It will be the largest hotel in the Far East and is the first post-war hotel to be built on the island. The structure faces, on one side, the teeming international harbor of Hong Kong and, on the other, the Peak and the scenic hills for which the city is noted. Under construction nearby is the terminal of the new 24-hour vehicular ferry to run between the island and the Kai Tak International Airport. The Eagle's Nest, a restaurant-cocktail lounge on the hotel's 25th floor, will provide a spectacular view of the harbor. The grand ballroom will accommodate 1,000 for banquets. The Montreal Airport Hilton is located adjacent to the new international airport in the town of Dorval, Quebec. The hotel has a French-Canadian style dining room and sizeable banquet facilities. Recreational features include a six-hole golf course and a swimming pool. The Queen Elizabeth in Montreal is now operating four restaurants, two cocktail lounges and a cafeteria with combined seating for 1,000 persons, in the famous Place Ville Marie office and downtown shopping center. EXECUTIVE CHANGES: Late in the year, the new position of senior vice president was created and five former vice presidents were elevated to this post. They are Joseph P. Binns, managing director of the New York and Washington Hiltons; Spearl Ellison, western division manager; Vernon Herndon, central division manager; Robert F. Quain, national sales and marketing manager; and Frank G. Wangeman, eastern division manager. The Hilton Personnel Development Program, formally inaugurated during the latter part of 1961, made significant progress during 1962. Corporate- sponsored programs for selected individuals resulted in a number of assignments of key personnel. In November of 1962 a regional plan was approved whereby coordinators in principal cities in the United States co-operate with the central office in the recruiting, selecting and training of qualified personnel within their geographic areas. Intra-hotel training continued in all units with particular emphasis on courtesy and friendliness especially among employees who come in direct contact with guests. EMPLOYEE RELATIONS: The demand for trained employees is increasing due to the many new Hilton Hotels to be opened in the coming years. This offers opportunities for advancement to employees rendering superior performance. Management is giving them every assistance at all levels to learn new skills and aptitudes. Employee benefits, including a pension plan, medical and life insurance programs, were continued in force during the year. Relations between employer and employees continued at a high level throughout the year. As a service organization, the energies and abilities of the Corporation's 30,000 employees are its greatest asset. Presently the International hotels employ 8,500 people representing 52 nationalities. 2T
