The Hilton family’s strategy combined with bold investments into real property and diesel.
Conrad Hilton was the founder. His talent for business became apparent when he was young. He believed that all space must be used to the maximum. Hilton’s strategy was very successful and allowed him to open one hotel after another. The first deluxe skyscraper hotel he opened was the El Paso in Texas in 1930, now called the Plaza Hotel. He also didn’t hesitate to invest large amounts into diesel during the economic crisis, and this also earned him a great deal. Today the entire chain has over five hundred hotels in 85 countries across the six continents. Conrad’s descendants successfully continue the work he began. His goal was:
“I have learned that you won’t get anywhere if you remain sitting comfortably in your chair. If you work long and hard enough, you will manage to make your dreams come true.”

"Give everyone you deal with the deserved respect. Believe in your ideas, your fate and God."
