Hilton Hotels

When anybody thinks of the top name in luxury hotels, the name that automatically springs to mind is Hilton.  For decades Hilton has been the standard bearer for quality, luxury living away from home, whether your home is here in the United States or abroad.

Owner and general American businessman Conrad Hilton has left his mark all over the world with his signature hotels and resorts.  Today he is one of the most respected businessmen in the world and quite a colorful character from what I understand.

In fact, you have stayed in a Hilton hotel and not even known it, as the company owns many different subsidiaries.  So just in case you weren't up on all the facts of the Hilton Hotel chain, here are some interesting one's that you'll be able to impress your travel savvy friends with…and no Paris Hilton (named after one of her father's favorite Hotels) jokes I swear…they're all pretty bad anyway.

Did you know that the Hilton Corporation owns the following hotel chains?

  • Hilton
  • Conrad
  • Doubletree
  • Embassy Suites Hotels
  • Hampton Inn
  • Hampton Inn & Suites
  • Hilton Garden Inn
  • Hilton Grand Vacations Company
  • Homewood Suites

While you may not have stayed in a Hilton by name, you have most likely staying on of their hotels, and were therefore still a beneficiary of their trademark service and quality. In fact the Hilton Company has approximately 2,216 hotels all round the world.  Of these hotels there are over 352,885 rooms for you to choose from, and these hotels are in just about every nation in the world…except the dangerous ones of course.

Above that, the Hilton hotel chain employs over 70,000 people world wide, and all of them are committed to helping you have the best stay imaginable while you are away from home.

Another interesting fact is that the Hilton Company even owns the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York City, one of the most prestigious hotels in the world.  So if you are looking for a great hotel experience you have to try Hilton in any of its incarnations, they are simply the best.
