Transcript studded islands are floodlighted at night. Hilton International has a 25-year management contract with renewal options. The 18-story, 1,200-room San Francisco Hilton is approaching completion. The hotel is located downtown, close to business, shopping and entertainment areas. A unique feature is the provision for parking on the first seven guest room floors as well as in an underground garage. Scheduled for opening early in 1965 is the 1,200- room Washington (D.C.) Hilton. Designed with a resort flavor, the eight-story hotel features landscaped gardens, tennis courts and heated swimming pool with cabanas. It is capable of accommodating large conventions. Located on Connecticut Avenue in the heart of Washington's embassy district, the hotel is about one mile from the White House. Hilton has a 20-year management contract. The 22-story, 500-room St. Paul Hilton will be built on the northeast corner of Kellogg Boulevard and Wabasha Street in the downtown area. Hilton Hotels will invest $500,000 in stock and notes of S. P. H. Hotel Company, a company formed by St. Paul businessmen which will build and own the $12,000,000 structure. The Corporation's management contract is for 20 years with renewal options. Expected completion will be in 1966. Through the management contract program, it is anticipated that the Hilton name will be on the skyline of an increasing number of American cities. Besides bringing an assured source of earnings, management contract hotels are making additional cities Hilton- conscious. Based on experience, hotel customers from a Hilton city are more likely to stay in Hilton hotels when traveling than are travelers from non-Hilton cities. Scheduled for completion late in 1964 is the modernization program of The Palmer House. The program consists in part of remodeling 576 rooms from the sixth to the eleventh floors, and construction of two large function rooms in the existing outside courts. This provides the effect of creating a hotel-within-a- hotel which will have its own registration desk, restaurants, swimming pool and banquet halls. The inner hotel will be attractive to convention groups that want to meet in a large downtown hotel but be separated from other guests. The exhibit hall area has been enlarged and escalators have been installed between the street level and the fourth floor to service the exhibit and ballroom areas. Following its successful operation of the restaurants in Chicago's McCormick Place convention center, Hilton Catering will operate the restaurants and catering facilities in the new Marina City development in Chicago. Hilton will operate a unique rooftop Hilton Cafe International, featuring rare and gourmet foods from around the world, atop the Better Living Center at the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. This will introduce Hilton operations, in an ideal setting, to hundreds of thousands of travelers from many lands. As a result of the owner's inability to pay principal and interest, The Granada Hotel in San Antonio, Texas, which the Corporation sold in 1960 on an installment basis, was reacquired in January 1964. The Corporation has been negotiating to operate a new 500-room hotel to be built in the French Quarter of New Orleans on Bourbon, Bienville and Conti Streets. Hilton Hotels plans to invest $250,000 in preferred stock of the owning company, Vieux Carre Inn, Inc., and to manage the hotel under a 20-year agreement with a renewal option. Construction on the $12,000,000 project is scheduled to begin in May of this year. INTERNATIONAL EXPANSION: Hilton's coverage of the Free World has now reached the point were travelers may take a worldwide tour, savoring the flavor of various cultures while having Hilton comforts available at every stop. Eight new hotels and two existing hotels were added to the International system during 1963. The 261- room, air conditioned Royal Tehran Hilton in Iran was opened in January. It is the tallest building in Tehran, and affords a magnificent view of the Elburz Mountains and the city of Tehran. The 28-story 509-room London Hilton in England was opened on April 15. The London Hilton, built, furnished and equipped at a cost of $22,000,000, faces historic Hyde Park, one of the most fashionable and famous sections of London. The 480-room Athens Hilton in Greece was built at a cost of $14,000,000. It is located near the center of the city on Vasilissis Sophias Avenue. The Acropolis and Parthenon may be viewed from the rooftop restaurant and many of the guest rooms. The 398-room Cavalieri Hilton was opened in June. It is located in a landscaped park atop Monte Mario in Rome, Italy. It affords dramatic views of St. Peter's and all of Rome and is located within 15 minutes drive from the center of the city. The 263-room Rotterdam Hilton in Holland was 14
