From the Paper:

"Brand extension became possible for HHC, through mergers and acquisitions. Among the brands acquired by the HHC are Hampton Inn, Doubletree, Embassy Suites and Homewood Suites. As a result of this brand extension, HHC has also expanded its service coverage, which now includes conference centers, airport hotels, destination resorts, apart from its usual center hotels and all-suite hotels services. Thus, business expansion is inevitable for HHC. Through its acquisitions, HHC is now known as not only an owner of a hotel chain, but also as manager to other hotels, owned through the Hilton brand. These strategies helped HHC became a well-known hotel brand internationally, especially among countries wherein Hilton has no recall or recognition as a hotel brand. Acquiring existing, popular hotels in an international territory helped Hilton be recognized as a superior and prestigious hotel brand, in effect."
