I am pleased to appoint these extremely qualified and capable leaders to their new roles as heads of our Embassy Suites Hotels and Homewood Suites by Hilton brands. I am confident in their ability to enhance the reputations of these brands as segment leaders in guest satisfaction and to successfully position them for continued and rapid development growth.

We are excited to work together with NBC Universal on such a landmark event showcasing world-class athletes who have realized their dreams and continue to inspire and foster community through their sports.

I think we're the industry leader in terms of how we sell on our own Web site. Clearly our preference is to sell them ourselves if we can.
