Transcript Several sales building devices have been placed in effect such as a uniform family plan and a guaranteed rate range for advance reservations which has been particularly helpful to corporations having a substantial amount of business travel. Hilton Hotels is cooperating with the United States government and a number of businesses who are interested in promoting travel from abroad to our country. We are beginning to notice a reverse flow of travel by nationals of other lands who first became acquainted with Hilton through the International system. The Hilton Reservation Service, which currently handles approximately 25 per cent of total reservations, continues to expand. There are presently 111 cities around the world where, by making a local telephone call, one can make immediate reservations in any Hilton (or associate) Hotel or Inn. At December 31, 1961, the Corporation owned, leased and operated or managed 44 hotels and inns with a total of 30,798 guest rooms. Thirty-three were within the United States while eleven were in other nations or United States territories. Three of the domestic hotels have connecting office buildings under Hilton operation comprising 578,549 square feet of office and store space. modernization: Modernization of Hilton Hotels is a never- ending process which keeps them up to Flilton standards. Capital expenditures for modernization (as distinct from repairs and maintenance) amounted to $9,860,963 in 1961 compared with $8,002,732 in 1960. Much of the activity during the year was behind-the-scenes to place our properties in the best possible condition, which, while unseen, makes an important contribution to the comfort of the guests. However several major projects added directly to the convenience and pleasure of staying at Hilton Hotels. At the Palmer House, all 110 suites were fully refurbished and the Town and Country Lounge was remodeled in the rich manner of the Victorian era. The Conrad Hilton's new exhibition, convention and banquet facility, located in a separate but inter-connecting building, opened in February 1962. The new facility has accommodations for seating 2,600 at a banquet or 4,000 at a meeting and a two-level exhibition and meeting area with 52,000 square feet. This hotel's exhibition space now totals 85,000 square feet. At the New York Statler Hilton, the re-constructed and air-conditioned lobby and the new mezzanine exhibition hall were completed in the summer. The exhibition hall was created by bridging over the entire lobby area, utilizing what was formerly open space. This hotel now has the largest convention and exhibition areas of any currently operating hotel in New York City.
