Besides opening the Istanbul Hilton, your Corporation in 1955 signed contracts to operate hotels now being built in Egypt and West Berlin. These hotels are in addition to other Hilton hotels under construction in Cuba, Canada and Mexico. Hilton Hotels International has also entered into preliminary agreements to operate hotels to be constructed in Rome, Honolulu, Tokyo and negotiations are pending in Trinidad and a number of other countries. Our expanding activities outside of the continental United States are based on sound business, and upon the contribution of our international hotels to world trade and travel, and thereby to world peace and understanding. From the business point of view, we are certain that the traveler who gets to know us in, say, Istanbul, probably will be our guest in New York, and that similarly, more and more Americans who go abroad look for, and find, a Hilton hotel in which to stay. At the same time, we feel that our hotels help circulate western thought through the countries of the world and promote a stream of tourists and business men across the face of the earth. New prosperity is brought to far off areas and world trade is encouraged. Domestic Expansion Following by two months the opening of the Istanbul Hilton, the Corporation in August dedicated in Beverly Hills, California what is generally acclaimed as the world's most luxurious hotel. The Beverly Hilton boasts 416 ultra-modern rooms, most of them with balconies. The hotel features superb public and private dining rooms, an outside swimming pool, and specialty shops and stores encompassing 94,000 square feet of floor space on both sides of the Wilshire Boulevard entrance. On January 15, 1956, brilliant ceremonies marked the opening of The Statler Hilton in Dallas, Texas. Containing 1,001 rooms, all air-conditioned, this hotel is the largest in the southwestern United States. The big Y-shaped building is one of the most modern hotels in the world. It is 20 stories high and gives the impression of being constructed entirely of glass and aluminum. There are five ballrooms, an assembly room, 14 dining rooms, and 26 meeting and display rooms. The main ballroom is the biggest in the southwest and can be opened up in such a manner as to provide banquet space for 1,625 persons or meeting space for 2,200. ]
