Transcript High atop The Town House roof technicians are shown working on the master television antenna which was installed to accommodate all the sets in the hotel. After the television set is installed in a guest room it is given a final check. Now that it is in perfect working order, the main antenna and control box take over for clear reception. The main control box is located on top of the hotel's roof. Photo shows engineers working on the finer points of the mechanism. Television comes to the Town House. Since the policy of giving the hotel guest every possible comfort and convenience has always been a first consideration of Hilton Hotels, it comes very naturally that an adequate television program be developed. Working toward this end on a testing basis, this has been accomplished at The Town House, where there is today 100% installation of television receivers in all guest rooms. And the most important thing is that this is a guest service, offered at no charge. It is possible for Hilton Hotels to offer this program because of two factors. First, mass buying power of Hilton Hotels enables them to buy sets at greatly reduced prices. Secondly, the television manufacturers see a great advertising media for them. Town House guests relax and enjoy the convenience of having television in every accommodation. All of which helps to make the hotel, their home away from home. The Town House is located in the heart of one of the smartest shopping centers in America, and just a short distance from beautiful beaches and colorful Santa Anita race track. With its delightfully decorated and spacious rooms the hotel offers guests gracious living. Luxurious Lanai's bordering the aquamarine pool and gardens combine resort living with city convenience. This setting along with other facilities forms a background for garden weddings and social gatherings and leading press previews, showing the latest fashions. ®
