Transcript k/e 3tu>vui&vi 9ia/l ll^eAAUxCioKa^ Scope-.. . The opening of three hotels, and the final preparation for a fourth, made 1958 the biggest year in the history of Hilton Hotels International. The addition of The Habana Hilton, The Queen Elizabeth, and The Berlin Hilton brought the number of Hilton Hotels in operation outside the continental limits of the United States to eight. It more than doubled the size of the International operation, bringing the total number of available guest rooms to 3,759, from a total of 1,427 at the close of 1957. The Habana Hilton, a 630-room, 30-story skyscraper, is the tallest building in Latin America. Each of the beautifully decorated rooms and suites has a spacious private balcony offering a panoramic view of either historic Morro Castle, the city of Havana, or its famous harbor. It was built at a cost of $24,000,000, and is owned by the Retirement Fund of the Catering Workers Union, many of whose members are employed in the hotel. Canada's newest and most cosmopolitan hotel, The Queen Elizabeth, was opened in Montreal on April 15. Owned by the Canadian National Railways, and operated by Hilton Hotels International, this 1,200-room hotel is the most modern in the entire British Commonwealth, and the largest property in the Hilton Hotels International operation. The Berlin Hilton was dedicated on November 29, to the tune of ominous warnings from Russia for Westerners to vacate the city. Our clear affirmation, in the hotel's dedication ceremonies, that Hilton hotels are not built where there is no future for them, proved a memorable and stirring occasion for all citizens of West Berlin. The 347-room Berlin Hilton is the first major new hotel built in West Berlin since the War, and combines modern and functional design with the finest of German art, decorations, and furnishings. It is a 13-story structure overlooking Berlin's famed Zoological Gardens, and was built at a cost of $6,000,000. The Berlin Hilton features facilities for social functions, public meetings and exhibitions, professional and business conventions, and cultural activities. The newest hotel in the International operation, and the 34th Hilton hotel, was formally dedicated in Cairo, Eygpt, on February 22, 1959. The Nile Hilton, a luxurious 400-room hotel, occupies the finest site in the age-old city on the banks of the world's longest and most famous river. Hilton hotels will be under construction in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Athens, and Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, in 1959. Other hotels have been contracted for in Tokyo, Bangkok, Rome, and London. 19
