Symbol of dollar supremacy - Despite the fact that in 1963 Hilton operated already 21 hotels in 16 different countries, the London hotel was to become its flagship property in Europe. Curt Strand strongly believed that a hotel in London would have similar status in the International Division as the Waldorf Astoria in the Domestic Division 1 . A similar comparison was made by William Irvin, the Vice President of Hilton International and a long-time friend of Conrad’s, who in 1958 recognised the Waldorf Astoria, the Plaza and the Palmer House as the most prominent properties of the Hilton Hotels Corporation.
