Conrad Hotels was founded in 1982, with the goal of operating a network of luxury hotels and resorts in the world's major business and tourism capitals and top resort destinations.
Conrad Hotels was not the first international expansion project for Hilton Hotels Corporation. In 1949, Hilton, through its Hilton International arm launched and began operations with the opening of the Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico, followed by additional hotel openings in Madrid and Istanbul.
Fifteen years later, Hilton Hotels Corporation created Hilton International as a completely separate, publicly owned corporation, with the agreement that Hilton would have the exclusive use of the Hilton name and trademarks in the U.S. and Hilton International would have the exclusive use of these outside the U.S.
In January 1997, Hilton International (now the hotel division of Hilton Group plc) and Hilton Hotels Corporation dedicated themselves to the joint promotion of the Hilton brand worldwide, through several brand and marketing alliances.
In November 2000, Hilton Group plc and Hilton Hotels Corporation formed a joint venture company to expand the Conrad brand of luxury hotels on a worldwide basis. With the acquisition of Hilton International by Hilton Hotels Corporation in March 2006, the Conrad brand is now the most global luxury brand within the Hilton Family. The brand is headquartered in Hilton International's corporate offices in the UK.
Conrad Hotels Hotels & Resorts is entering the most exciting period of its history, with bold plans to substantially increase its portfolio by 2010, with the opening a host of new luxury hotels and resorts around the world.
