The new hotel will be eight stories tall, completely air-conditioned, and feature a ballroom seating 3,000 persons for banquets or 4,200 for meetings. A modern exhibition hall will be located on the same floor as the ballroom. Situated in the Temple Heights section of the capital, about one mile from the White House, this hotel will overlook central Washington and the adjacent embassy section. Elaborately landscaped gardens, tennis courts and a heated swimming pool with cabanas are planned for the grounds surrounding the building. Parking for 600 cars will be provided. Uris Buildings Corporation will construct and Hilton Hotels will manage the hotel for Hilton-Uris, Inc. which is owned in equal shares by Hilton and Uris. Permanent financing in the amount of $18,000,000 has been arranged. In late July, excavation was begun for the 1,200-room Hilton Hotel in downtown San Francisco. Completion date for the 18-story structure is estimated for late 1963. A mortgage commitment for long-term financing of $16,000,000 has been arranged. Construction is well along on the 27-story Portland (Oregon) Hilton. The public areas will be in a five story base with the 500 guest rooms in the 22-story tower above. The upper levels will afford panoramic views of the Willamette River, Mount Hood and other peaks of the Cascades. In 1961, $890,000 was drawn down under the $5,000,000 first mortgage loan commitment on this property. Ground was broken in November for The Kahala Hilton, a new luxury resort hotel on a six-acre leased site adjacent to the Waialae Country Club in Honolulu. The ocean front property, east of Diamond Head, is about three miles from Waikiki. Plans for the 300-room project include a number of garden cottages around a lagoon, each with private swimming pool. The style of the architecture will reflect that of the Hawaiian monarchy. Permanent financing of $4,000,000 has been arranged. The lease on the Hilton Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas expired February 1, 1962 and was not renewed. Hilton Catering, our first major venture in operating restaurants not directly connected with a hotel, had a very satisfactory year. Our profit from operating the restaurant facilities at Chicago's McCormick Place exhibition center measured up to expectations. This operation requires flexibility, as it encompasses four types of food service: elegant full-service restaurants, a self-service restaurant, banquet service ranging up to 25,000 persons and portable refreshment and snack stands for use in the large exhibit arease. McCormick Place has been well received as a convention center and is booked near capacity during 1962. Our initial lease is for another five years with three successive renewal options of three years each. 15
