Transcript Sheraton's OWN PHILADELPHIA STORY Grand Opening Receives Nationwide Attention Cafe Careme, the hotel's formal dining room, where the classic French cuisine is featured. Seating 125, theCafe Careme's decoris of'the Louis XVI period. At the east end of the top floor is the beautiful Presidential Suite, one of several luxury suites which make up the entire 22nd floor. Suite is provided with authentic 18th century furniture typifying the greatest skills of the early Philadelphia cabinet makers. Few museums can display early Philadelphia grandfather clocks or highboys comparable to those used in the Presidential suite. Three days of special events and festivities signaled the opening of the Philadelphia Sheraton, and attracted nationwide publicity. It ranked as one of the most publicized hotel openings in recent years, and brought the Sheraton name to the attention of millions. Broadcasts of two famous TV shows directly from the Sheraton; a dinner for Hungarian Relief, with Perle Mesta as hostess; an economic conference attended by well-known business and financial leaders, and a Navy League Ball were the outstanding events that filled the hotel. Celebrities from coast to coast were attracted to the Sheraton for the opening days. The importance of this opening is underlined by the fact the Philadelphia Sheraton, with 82% of the building devoted to income-producing activities, is expected to gross over $6,000,000 annually. More than 180 national conventions have already been booked for the next five years. The Philadelphia Sheraton is a milestone for both Sheraton and the city of Philadelphia. For Sheraton, it's the first hotel constructed by the corporation — all other properties were purchased as going businesses. For Philadelphia, it's the first hotel built in the city in the past 31 years. As such, it fills a vital need for convention facilities, and is already bringing new business to the city, and new honors to Sheraton. The Philadelphia Sheraton, with 900 rooms, can handle 2,400 persons at banquets, and 4,000 for meetings. The 22-story building occupies an entire block as a part of the Penn Center development. The 1,000-car Sheraton garage is connected by underground concourse to the hotel. There's also easy access to the Pennsylvania Railroad station, directly under the hotel. But the Sheraton is more than a milestone — it's the culmination of the most intensive planning ever devoted to a new hotel. Experienced Sheraton personnel throughout the country were asked to contribute ideas on how this could be made the finest possible hotel. The architects, and particularly Sheraton's own architectural and engineering staffs, succeeded in shaping these ideas into a hotel which aptly symbolizes "The Proudest Name in Hotels." 14
