The Hilton
The Hilton Hotels group is an internationally recognized and famous hotel chain which offers a unique product to its guests. They operate both hotels and resorts and they are presently managed and owned by Hilton Hotels Corporation. They presently operate nearly 533 properties around the world. Further, this global expansion made the Hilton Hotels the first coast to coast hotel chain of the United States in 1943. With such humble beginnings, the company today has grown to establish such efforts as placing marketing emphasis on business travel, while owning and operating a number of resorts and leisure-oriented hotels as well. The company's Hilton Honors guest loyalty program has partnerships with airlines and car rental companies. As a matter of administration, it is important to mention that the Hilton brand was re-united internationally after more than 40 years in February 2006, when United States-based Hilton Hotels Corporation purchased the lodging arm of United Kingdom-based Hilton Group PLC, which had acquired Hilton's international operations in 1987 (the companies had been severed originally in 1966).

Tracing this great hotel chains' beginnings, Conrad Hilton is the name of most importance since it was he that found this group in 1919 by buying his first hotel, the Mobley Hotel at Cisco, Texas. Then, in 1930, he opened his first high-rise Hilton hotel in El Paso, Texas, which is currently called the Plaza Hotel. Importantly, in a benchmark move, in 1954 Hilton hotels bought the Statler Hotel chain, making it the largest hospitality company in the world.
