Transcript on construction of the Castellana Hilton in Madrid, Spain, one of the most beautiful hotels in Spain and the first Hilton hotel in Europe. Each of the 300 rooms contains a private bath, telephone and radio, and many have air conditioning and terraces. The Turkish Pension Fund, which is building a hotel in Istanbul, Turkey, for operation by Hilton Hotels International, has let the construction contract and actual work on the building was under way by the end of the year. IMPROVEMENTS Though the majority of your Corporation's hotels are twenty or more years old, they are in excellent condition due to the extensive modernization and rehabilitation program which we have carried out. As a result, their competitive position in their respective communities is better than when the hotels were new. During the past seven years the Corporation has invested $19,734,549 toward that end. The largest improvement program in 1952 centered about the Jefferson Hotel in St. Louis. The hotel, when acquired in 1951, was below Hilton standards and required extensive renovation. Despite the handicap of Government restrictions on the use of materials necessary to remodelling, work progressed steadily. A completely new lobby has been installed in the Jefferson Hotel, redesigned and redecorated in every detail. Airline waiting rooms have been consolidated and the areas formerly occupied by them converted into valuable street front space available for commercial rental. The entrance and first floor exterior of the hotel have also been completely modernized. During the year, a number of changes were made in the executive roster of the Corporation. On April 19, 1952, Charles L. Fletcher, formerly a partner of Harris, Kerr, Forster and Company, was elected as vice president. At the same time, Herbert E. Holt, formerly assistant treasurer and comptroller, was elected treasurer and comptroller.
