Most of Hiltons in US are build by Drury constriction company. Drury also operate some of them. Why to pay extra for Hilton if you can stay in Drury Hotel for less and have a free breakfast and drinks?

MALAYSIA

KUCHING, SARAWAK

Kuching is the capital of the East Malaysian State of Sarawak. Kuching is the most populous city in the state of Sarawak and the fourth largest city in Malaysia. Kuching was elevated to city status on 1 August 1988.

BATANG AI NATIONAL PARK, SARAWAK

From Wikipedia
Batang Ai National Park is located in the Sri Aman Division of Sarawak, in eastern Malaysia on the island of Borneo. It is located in Lubok Antu, some 250 kilometers east of Kuching. The park covers an area of 240 square kilometers of extensive tropical rainforest with a number or rare and protected animals surrounding the 24 square kilometer artificial lake created by the Batang Ai hydroelectric reservoir. The park was proclaimed in 1991, and has become increasingly popular with locals and tourists despite the lack of facilities.

Access is possible by chartering a boat, as water is the main method of transportation in the area. The lush dipterocarp forests are home to the Orang-Utan, gibbons, and hornbills. The lake creates a beautiful environment and gives a sense of peace and tranquility. The local inhabitants are mostly Iban, and tours to nearby Iban longhouses are also a tourist diversion. This national park takes strong steps in having the local communities involved in its management. The communities have formed a cooperative called 'Kooperasi Serbaguna Ulu Batang Ai' and are helping to conserve the park.

From Hilton Webpage
Set on the edge of spectacular rainforest, the Hilton Batang Ai Longhouse Resort is Hilton's only jungle property. The Batang Ai national park is a 2-hour boat ride away, but rainforest surrounds the hotel waiting to be discovered. Swim in the pool or enjoy a game of tennis on our asphalt courts. The Hilton Batang Ai Longhouse Resort specialises in themed incentive trips. We have 3 meeting rooms for up to 220 people, a communal PC station and a range of business services. You will find the Wong Irup Lounge a perfect place to relax with a cocktail with your colleagues. Enjoy local Malaysian cuisine at the Nanga Mepi Restaurant. Try a Longhouse-style Hilton Room, with garden views and sliding patio door windows, or step up to a two-level Suite for more space and comfort.

Hey all,

Just wanted to say i love the Hilton Love in this thread. I happen to work at the Hilton World Headquarters in Beverly Hills, CA 90210 in Project Development.

If none of you heard Blackstone bought out (merged technically) with Hilton Hotels. For the purposes of this thread, we are welcoming several new hotels to the family, about 100,000 rooms. The La Quinta Hotel Chain, and LXR Luxury Resorts & Hotels.

Athens Hilton, sixties classic. All rooms with a view of the Acropolis.



Totally refurbished for the Athens Olympics. Notice the hieroglyphics on the side



The famous runner glass sculpture just outside it

Would not agree with you. If the agreement is settled and signed it will indeed be among the smaller ones (the range of about 150 keys) but not the smallest (there are a few below 150, in Europe and elswhere).


kind regards
Angel
