Transcript INTERNATIONAL GROWTH 4,500 4,000 3,500 3,000 2,500 2,000 1,500 1,000 500 59 NUMBER OF ROOMS AT YEAR'S END I II I 1 1 1950 1951 1952 1953 1954 1955 1956 1957 1958 19 The occupancy rate of the three Inns is rising steadily, indicating the need for and the ready acceptance of this type of accommodations. Construction of a 310-room Inn is well along at the Atlanta Municipal Airport with completion scheduled for June, 1960. It occupies a 10.5 acre site, just opposite the entrance to the new terminal. The Inn comprises five buildings, connected by covered walkways which form quadrangles featuring elaborate tropical gardens and wide galleries that overlook inner courtyards. Convention facilities include a meeting room that can be converted into a series of smaller rooms. The restaurant will seat 220 persons while another 100 can be accommodated in the coffee shop. The Inn has been leased for 25 years with a renewal option. Furnishings are being provided by the lessee. The ten acre leased site has been graded in preparation for construction of a 150-room Hilton Inn on the highway opposite the Seattle- Tacoma International Airport. It is expected the $1,500,000 Inn will be opened in the late fall of 1960. The Inn is designed so that additional rooms can be constructed later as required. Plans are currently being completed for roadside hotels situated near major throughway complexes at Aurora, Illinois and Tarrytown, New York. Both are scheduled for completion late in 1960. The Hilton Inn at Aurora will occupy approximately 14 acres of leased ground on the outskirts of the city on route 31 and adjacent to the Illinois tollway. There will be 300 guest rooms and a central building costing approximately $4.4 million to construct and furnish. The land is leased for a term of 25 years with renewal options and an option to purchase. The Tarrytown Inn will be situated on a 10-acre leased tract at Exit 9 of the New York Thruway near the Tappan Zee Bridge about 20 miles north of mid town-Manhattan. It is readily accessible to other main traffic arteries. The 200-room Inn will cost about $2.5 million. Negotiations are being conducted for a number of other locations. Present plans are for about 20 Inns operating within the next five years. Standards set by our larger downtown hotels are being painstakingly applied to our Inns in the food, service, furnishings and in the actual construction of the buildings. They are being run for the comfort and convenience of both the traveler and the citizens of the communities in which they are located. International Operations One hotel was opened and another, already in operation, was leased during 1959, bringing the number of hotels in the International system to ten. The 400-room Nile Hilton was opened in Cairo, Egypt, U. A. R., in February, 1959. This hotel, located in one of the world's great cities, is beautifully situated overlooking the Nile. Las Brisas Hilton was leased on July 1, 1959. It is located on a 70- acre hillside site, featuring tropical foliage and overlooking the Bay of Acapulco, Mexico. One of the world's most unusual resort hotels, its 157 guest rooms are contained in a series of individual bungalows on five terraces rising one above the other. Outstanding features include some 40 outdoor swimming pools and a fleet of jeeps maintained for use by the guests. Two specially constructed lagoons form bathing areas in 19
