Transcript and Buffalo Statler Hiltons and at The Netherland Hilton in Cincinnati as well as in other hotels. The Palmer House enlarged its ballroom from a capacity of approximately 1,200 to 1,800 for dinner, making it the largest in Chicago. The Conrad Hilton has begun construction on a $3.5 million exhibition, convention and banquet facility in a separate but interconnecting building. Target completion date is December, 1961. When completed, the ballroom will be one of the largest in any hotel in the world, seating 2,600 for a banquet and 4,000 for a meeting. The bi-level exhibition and meeting area will provide an additional 52,000 square feet, bringing total hotel exhibition space to 85,000 square feet. The Conrad Hilton's electric power generating station was replaced with a modern power station. As the new equipment takes much less space, it has been possible to consolidate various mechanical shops and storerooms which were previously separated. A luxurious two-story addition, known as the Lanais, has been completed at The Beverly Hilton. The 41 rooms and suites feature sliding glass doors giving access to the patio and Aqua Star pool. The Empire Room restaurant at the Dallas Statler Hilton was redecorated. Passenger elevators at the Los Angeles Statler Hilton and the Albuquerque Hilton were converted to self-operation and a similar conversion is nearing completion at The Shamrock Hilton. A $250,000 expansion project is under way at the San Francisco Hilton Inn to increase dining, banquet and meeting facilities. Of the 269 guest rooms at El Panama Hilton, 110 have been redecorated in a colorful native Panamanian theme with the remainder to be completed in 1961. A Trader Vic restaurant is nearing completion at The Caribe Hilton. domestic expansion: Furthering its program to operate large hotels in important convention centers, the Corporation opened The Denver Hilton in April, 1960. This exceptional 21-story, 880 room hotel is part of the Courthouse Square development. It is our first hotel in the Rocky Mountain states. The convention area, the largest and most complete in the region, occupies approximately 25,000 square feet and may be used in conjunction with the ballroom facilities for exhibits. The ballroom can seat 2,000 people for a meeting and 1,500 for banquets. Facilities are arranged so that two conventions can be accommodated simultaneously in distinctly different areas. The hotel has six private dining rooms and six restaurants and bars. Hilton Hotels is operating the hotel under a 35-year lease with renewal options. Now under construction is the 27-story, $10 million Portland Hilton. The hotel site is a full city block bounded by Southwest Broadway, Sixth Avenue, Salmon and Taylor Streets. The tallest in Portland when completed, the building will consist of a five-story base containing public areas, main lobby, ballrooms, private dining rooms, restaurants, shops and outdoor swimming pool, service areas and parking. The 22-story tower above will include a total of 500 guest rooms, a private club, and a rooftop restaurant and cocktail lounge. Panoramic views of the Willamette River, Mt. Hood and other peaks of the Cascades can be seen from the upper levels. Opening is scheduled for 1962.
