Hilton became the first international hotel chain with the opening of the Caribe Hilton Hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

John Lennon and Yoko Ono held their first Bed-In for Peace between March 25 and March 31, 1969 at the Amsterdam Hilton in Room 902. This room has become a popular tourist destination.

Hilton Hotels owns and manages several other hotel brands, catering to both business and leisure travel. These brands are Embassy Suites, Doubletree, Hampton Inn, Hampton Inn and Suites, Hilton Garden Inn, Conrad, Waldorf=Astoria Collection and Homewood Suites by Hilton. Total number of hotels now under the Hilton brand are 343 managed hotels and 2,242 Franchised hotels, with over 105,000 employees as of May 2007
