Transcript 44iJ2tdi>LT?irUAX... fc&i ikeTlfWwdbeA- The groundbreaking in June for the $23^ million San Francisco Hilton Inn inaugurated a major new type of expansion. The Inn is located on a ten acre site a half mile west of the terminal building of the San Francisco International Airport. This is the first step in a program which may well become the fastest area of growth for the Corporation's revenues and earnings over the next few years. The 300 guest rooms will be arranged in a pair of two-story buildings facing each other across a 100 foot wide garden and patio, which will contain two swimming pools. The buildings will be connected by covered passageways. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors in each room will open onto an enclosed balcony. Television, broadcast FM music, and hi-fi radio, individually controlled air conditioning, automatic dial telephones, and sound proofing will be standard. A separate circular building will house two restaurants, private dining rooms, a kitchen, a cocktail lounge, and administrative offices. Parking areas will accommodate 500 cars. The Inn is expected to openonorabout May 1,1959. A private club, to be known as The International Club, will be an outstanding feature of the San Francisco Hilton Inn. It will have separate facilities, including a dining room and cocktail lounge with orchestra and nightly dancing, swimming pool with lockers, steam baths and massage. It is contemplated that each Hilton Inn to be constructed will have a similar club and a membership card in one club will be honored in all the others. A 310-room Hilton Inn is scheduled for opening about May 15, 1959, opposite Moisant International Airport, serving New Orleans. This Inn will combine the best features of a resort, private club, fine restaurant, and convention center, and will be fully air conditioned. It will have three restaurants, two cocktail lounges, two swimming pools, a wading pool, and parking for 500 cars. Another Hilton Inn is planned for Tarrytown, New York, on a ten acre tract on the New York Thruway near the Tappanzee Bridge. The site is 20 miles from midtown Manhattan, and is easily accessible by the New York and New England Thruways, the Cross Westchester Expressway, Saw Mill River Parkway, and other main thoroughfares. This Inn, according to present plans, will contain 200 Rooms, cost $2 million, and will be completely air conditioned. A central building, patterned after the San Francisco Hilton Inn, is planned to contain public areas, restaurants, and a cocktail lounge. Architecturally, the design will be patterned after the Dutch and Colonial themes reminiscent of the Washington Irving country in which it is to be located. Interior decor will follow the same pattern. The Inn should open in 1960. Agreements were recently reached for the construction of a 150-room Hilton Inn adjacent to the El Paso (Texas) Airport. Plans are now being drawn, and actual construction will soon begin. Plans are being drawn for an ultra-modern 150-room Hilton Inn, to be situated adjacent to the airport at El Paso, Texas.
