Transcript • SEATTLE •SAN FRANCISCO hilton inn expansion: Three handsomely appointed new Hilton Inns were opened during 1961, bringing the number in operation to seven. The 146-room Seattle Inn, situated on ten acres fronting on Highway 99 across from the Seattle- Tacoma International Airport opened in July. This inn consists of four two-story guest buildings inter-connected by covered walkways with the one-story administration building. Ample space is available to add another 150 rooms as needed. The inn was constructed by Hilton on land leased for 20 years with renewal options totaling 55 years. The 270-room Aurora Inn was opened in late August. It is located on 13 acres of land at the intersection of Illinois East-West Tollway and Route 31. The seven two-story guest buildings and the administrative building also are interconnected by covered walkways. The main ballroom is spacious enough to seat 1,500 persons for a convention or 1,000 for a banquet. Hilton owns the building and has a long-term lease on the land with an option to purchase. On December 1, the 204-room Tarrytown Hilton Inn was opened for business. It is located just off the New York State Thruway, near the Tappan Zee Bridge, approximately 30 minutes from New York City by car. Inter-connected with the central building by glass-enclosed arcades are the north and south guest buildings, each two stories high of Dutch colonial style. Hilton owns the buildings on the ten-acre site leased through 1983 with options totaling 60 years. Hilton Inns, Inc. purchased the land and buildings comprising the Hilton Inn at Moisant International Airport, New Orleans, in October. The price was $2,750,000 which included $715,732 in cash and the assumption of the outstanding mortgage. In its first venture at operating a facility which it neither owns nor leases, Hilton has signed a 20-year contract to manage a six-story, 189-room structure now under construction in the Quality Hill section of Kansas City, Missouri. This Hilton Inn is convenient to the air terminal, downtown Kansas City 16 • EL PASO NEW ORLEANS.
