Transcript Om. The Horizon Thus far in 1957, conditions which helped to make 1956 the best year in our history are continuing. Despite some soft spots in the economy, national prosperity is at an all-time peak, and hotels should benefit from this high volume of activity. With the continuing population increase in all areas of the nation, and America's growing ability and willingness to travel, the long-term outlook for" the hotel industry is brighter than ever before—particularly in the large metropolitan areas where your Corporation's operations are concentrated. Continued attention is being devoted in 1957 to reducing costs, wherever possible, by combining facilities and avoiding duplication, and by purchasing many goods and services necessary for hotel operations through a central department. The results of expanded sales and progressive promotional activities—such as the unique Hilton reservation system, which accepts and immediately confirms telephone or telegraph reservations for any of our hotels—have been gratifying. Our guests not only expect the best when they register at a Hilton Hotel, but will continue to receive the best in the coming years. We feel that the decade to come will witness a further and still firmer identification of "Hilton" with "service" in the eyes of the public, which, in turn should bring ever-increasing patronage on the part of guests. It is our aim to so establish guest loyalties that those who enjoy our accommodations will regard our establishments as a second home, and will give first choice to the Hilton Family of Hotels because it has so much to offer in facilities, service, friendliness, and pleasure. Your management finds ample basis for confidence in viewing the months and years ahead. Hilton guests can ignore heat waves or oppressive outdoor humidity. A flick of a convenient control and climate a la carte is theirs, adjustable to individual preference. Cool, comfortable air conditioning is just one of many services enjoyed by Hilton guests, who expect, and receive the best when they register at Hilton Hotels. 32
