Hilton Worldwide encompasses several brands: Waldorf Astoria luxury hotels and resorts, DoubleTree, Embassy Suites, and Hilton Grand Vacations timeshares, among others. Hilton s headquarters are in Tyson s Corner, an unincorporated community in the Washington, D.C. area. The world-renowned Hilton name traces back to the son of a Norwegian immigrant.

In 1927 in Waco, Texas, he would open the first hotel with air conditioning and cold running water. Hilton continued to buy hotels across the country, until in 1946, Hilton Hotels Corporation began trading on the New York Stock Exchange, and three years later Hilton International was born.

Hyatt Hotels Corporation
Jay Pritzker s 1957 purchase of the Hyatt House at Los Angeles International Airport facilitated the growth of the hotel, which is today a multinational company that owns and operates numerous resorts, hotels, and vacation properties. Hyatt Robert Von Dehn, the hotel s namesake and one of its original owners, sold his company share to Pritzker, who worked with his younger brother Donald to expand the company. By 1962, the corporation was a publicly traded company and the fastest growing hotel chain in America. Their flagship Asian hotel, the Hyatt Regency Hong Kong, opened in 1969. The Grand, Park, and Hyatt resort brands took off in 1980. In 2004, the Pritzker’s consolidated all their family s hospitality assets into the Global Hyatt Corporation, now called Hyatt Hotels Corporation. The hotel s headquarters are in Chicago IL.
Hyatt owns 679 properties in 54 countries. These include hotels with full-service lodging such as the boutique-style Andaz chain and the convention-friendly Hyatt Regency. There are also select-service and extended-stay brands, as well as timeshares and all-inclusive resorts like the Hyatt Zilara.
The hotel was founded by entrepreneurs Jack Dyer Crouch and Hyatt Robert von Dehn, but brothers Jay and Donald Pritzker were responsible for the corporation s rapid growth in the 1960s and 70s. The company went global in 1969 with the opening of a Regency hotel in Hong Kong, China.
Fortune magazine named Hyatt the 47th best U.S.-based company to work for in 2016. The Hyatt Regency Atlanta, which opened in 1967, was the world s first contemporary atrium hotel. The current CEO is Mark S. Hoplamazian. Thomas J. Pritzker, the son of Jay Pritzker, is the executive chairman.

InterContinental Hotels Group
InterContinental Hotels Group PLC, also called IHG, is a global hotel company that houses well-known brands like Candlewood Suites, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Crowne Plaza, and their own brand, InterContinental. IHG s 5,099 hotels add up to 754,265 rooms around the world. Most recently, they launched the Hualuxe chain of luxury hotels and resorts in China, and EVEN Hotels, a wellness-oriented brand aimed at health-conscious travelers. IHG is based in Denham, Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom. When William Bass opened the Bass Brewery in Burton-upon-Trent in 1777, he had no way of knowing that his pub would blossom into a nationally known brewery brand. As the Bass name was expanding in the UK, Pan American Airways founder Juan Trippe was opening the first InterContinental Hotel in Belém, Brazil, as a division of PanAm. PanAm would sell InterContinental to UK-based Grand Metropolitan in 1981, who then sold it to Japan-based Saison Group in 1988. That same year, the British government passed legislation curtailing the number of pubs one breweries could own, so Bass turned its focus to its small chain of hotels. In 1990, Bass bought Holiday Inn International, and in 1998 it bought InterContinental. IHG became an independent company in 2003. Today IHG has offices in Denham, Atlanta, Singapore, and Shanghai.
IHG is a British hotel chain with 5,099 hotels in 100 countries and more than eight brands to its name. Its headquarters are in Denham, United Kingdom.
IHG was conceived by American entrepreneur Juan Trippe as a branch of Pan American Airways. Eventually it was sold to U.K. company Bass, and it became an independent corporation in 2003.
The Wilshire Grand Center, a property of IHG that is set to open in 2017, will be the tallest building in Los Angeles at 1,099 feet. IHG is currently listed on the Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 Index, an index of the 100 companies on the London Stock Exchange with the highest market capitalization. Richard Solomons is IHC s CEO.
