Transcript XT! ISUNBUU9SS S5 1983, subject to three successive renewal options of 20 years each. The 300-room Aurora Inn is located on a 14-acre site at the junction of the Illinois Tollway and Route 31. It is also scheduled for a summer opening. Hilton is constructing the building on a site leased for a term expiring in 1984, with two successive renewal options of 25 years each and an option to purchase. The Seattle Inn is located on a ten-acre site across U.S. Highway 99 from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, and a mid-year opening is planned. It will have 150 guest rooms with ample space to add another 150 rooms as required. Hilton is constructing the inn on land leased for 20 years with five renewal options totaling 55 years. An inn is in the planning stage for Miami, Florida. A site has been purchased adjacent to the Miami International Airport. A number of other sites across the country are under consideration. All inns attract a diverse patronage. They feature maximum flexibility of all facilities and incorporate the best features of a resort, private club, convention and business center, hotel and restaurant. As the domestic Hilton Inn program has broadened in scope, its administration was turned over to a new Inn Division formed early in the year. It is charged with operation of existing units, the construction of new units and the negotiating for additional units. international expansion: The pace of international expansion is quickening as a large number of opportunities have been presented to us in recent months. The basic tests which each proposal must satisfy are: need for new hotel facilities in the locality, assurances of operating the hotels in accordance with Hilton standards and customs, excellent possibility of profit both for the owners and for Hilton International and assurance that Hilton profit and expense reimbursement can be transferred to the United States. Each hotel venture must be justified either as an independent unit or as part of a related group of hotels throughout an area, such as the Caribbean. Two hotels were added to the International system during 1960, bringing the number to 11 with 4,162 guest rooms. On July 1, 1960, we assumed management of The Virgin Isle Hilton Hotel in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. The 184-room hotel, which overlooks the harbor and town, has been leased for 20 years with renewal options. It is only 25 minutes by air from San Juan, Puerto Rico, location of The Caribe Hilton. Both The Caribe Hilton and The Virgin Isle Hilton have an international flavor and appeal; yet they are located in lands under United States jurisdiction. Hilton International in association with Stanhill Consolidated Ltd. of Australia opened the first 195-room section of The Chevron Hilton Sydney in September, 1960. On January 1, 1961, we leased the 364-room Hotel Carrera in Santiago, Chile, our first in South America, for a period of 11 years with an option for an additional five years. Hotels in seven other cities, including two of the world's great capitals, London and Rome are now under construction. In March, after eight years of negotiations, we reached the final agreement to lease and operate 19 The Trinidad Hilton (top), Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu (bottom)
