The Hilton hotels became notorious for throwing huge, celebrity-studded parties to celebrate their hotels.
The Beverly Hilton hotel’s ballroom hosts the Grammy and Golden Globe Awards, which means a reliable crowd of actors, musicians, directors, models and more regularly check in.
John Lennon and Yoko Ono held one leg of their famous “Bed-In” at the Hilton Amsterdam while on their honeymoon in 1969 (the other part was at the Fairmont in Montreal.)
Later, John Lennon wrote the lyrics to “Imagine” on a pad of paper at the Hilton New York.
Hilton has quite a few firsts in its history.
