While international expansion drew the spotlight because of three openings, the Company also moved ahead rapidly to meet the increasing demand for hotel space within the United States. Work was commenced on plans during 1958 for new Hilton hotels in San Francisco, California, and Portland, Oregon, and construction proceeded on The Pittsburgh Hilton and The Denver Hilton. Consideration is being given to a $25 million, 1200-room hotel to be erected on a site in downtown San Francisco, bounded by O'Farrell, Mason, Taylor, and Ellis Streets, adjoining the new air terminal building. This site was acquired, at a cost of $3,184,090, by King Management Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of this Company. Plans being prepared will emphasize landscaping, outstanding public rooms, and functional layout, and will incorporate a number of advances in design. The Portland Hilton is to be a $10 million, 17-story, 500-room structure in the shadow of beautiful Mt. Hood. It will be landscaped in scenic plazas and gardens, and equipped with the most modern innovations in hotel construction. A cocktail lounge and dining room on the roof will over- look the city. The hotel will be owned by Metropolitan Hotel Corporation, which was organized for this purpose by a group of leading Portland citizens. Metropolitan Hotel Corporation is now a wholly owned subsidiary of your Company. The Pittsburgh Hilton, a 22-story, $15 million hotel in the Gateway Center district of Pittsburgh's Golden Triangle, is scheduled to open late this year. In keeping with the progressive spirit of the Gateway development, the 800-room Pittsburgh Hilton will be as modern as technology and the science of hotel operations will permit. In September, Hilton Hotels Corporation signed an agreement with Webb & Knapp, Inc., to operate an 843-room hotel currently under construction in its Courthouse Square development in Denver. Under the terms of the agreement, Hilton Hotels Corporation will lease the hotel from Webb & Knapp, Inc., for 35 years, with options for three extensions of 25 years each. Rental above a fixed minimum is based on a percentage of profits. The 21-story Denver Hilton will have the largest convention facilities in the Rocky Mountain area. Its opening is scheduled for early next year. Facilities in the Courthouse Square development which will not be operated by your Corporation include a department store, specialty shops, an underground parking facility for 2,000 cars, and a plaza area with an ice skating rink. The entire project totals more than 2 million square feet. The Denver Hilton has four underground levels, including a concourse connecting the hotel and the department store. A tea room in the concourse will be operated by the hotel. A bridge over Court Place will also connect the hotel and department store. The lobby will have direct access to private dining rooms, assembly rooms, cocktail lounge, and ballroom. The ballroom, one of the largest in the nation, will accommodate 2,500 persons. In July, 1958, the San Antonio Hilton Hotel completed the addition of 50 guest rooms in a separate building located across the street from the hotel. The San Antonio Hilton Inn features a swimming pool and garden area lined with palm trees. 14- 25,000 20,000 15,000 10,000 5,000 DOMESTIC EXPANSION NUMBER OF ROOMS AT YEAR'S END 1949 1950 1951 1952 1953 1954 1955 1956 1957 1958
