Transcript ^mT ^ from sales of food and beverage, with an annual minimum of $225,000. The $34 million center at 23rd Street and Lake Michigan is scheduled to open in November, 1960. Water's edge dining areas will include a full service dining room seating 650, a self service restaurant with a capacity of 1,800 persons an hour, and complete banquet facilities for groups up to 25,000. The contract is for a period of six years subject to the lessee's right to cancel after three years. On March 31, 1960, our lease on The Hotel Plaza in New York City will expire. We continue to hold an option to buy a one-half undivided interest in the land on which the hotel is situated at the option price of $400,000, exercisable between October 1, 1965, and March 31, 1966. Hilton Inn Program The Hilton Inn program gathered momentum during 1959. The first Inns to open were at the San Francisco International Airport on June 15, at the New Orleans International Airport on July 1, and at the El Paso International Airport on January 7, 1960. These structures represent the initial steps in our expansion into the operation of airport and roadside hotels. The increase in air traffic, from 16 million passengers in 1949 to an estimated 57 million in 1960, is creating a demand for the facilities of airport inns, and your management believes that in convenience there is profit. Similarly, the increasing automobile traffic on limited access superhighways will provide the necessary business for the profitable operation of our roadside inns. The $3 million, 302-room San Francisco Hilton Inn was constructed and furnished by Hilton Hotels Corporation on land leased from the City and County of San Francisco. The 307-room New Orleans Hilton Inn was leased until 1992, with an option for renewal. This lease is held by Hilton Inns, Inc. which provided the furnishings. The 150-room El Paso Hilton Inn was erected by the Corporation on a site leased from the City of El Paso. Cost of construction and furnishings approximated $1,500,000. Ground is available for an addition of 150 rooms as required. Each Hilton Inn combines the best features of a resort, private club, convention center, hotel and fine restaurant. No part of these structures is more than two stories in height. In appearance and operating techniques, each captures the feeling of intimacy and hospitality that characterized the wayside inns of the past. These Hilton Inns are adjacent to the main terminal buildings of the airports. Station wagons, operated by the Inns, carry travelers to and from the air terminals. Ample parking space is strategically located around the outer perimeters of the spacious sites in order to preserve the garden aspects of the central courtyards. Private clubs with separate facilities, each including a dining room, cocktail lounge with orchestra and nightly dancing, and a swimming pool with lockers, have been organized to operate in connection with these Inns. Members of the clubs pay a monthly fee, and may use the facilities for entertaining guests. 17
