Portrait of Conrad Hilton 1970 - 1979.

The Plaza Hotel, located at 106 Mills Avenue in downtown El Paso, is a fine example of the modernistic Art Deco style of the 1920s. It was designed by Henry C. Trost (1860-1933) for the Hilton Hotel chain and served as one of the city’s most luxurious hotels. In 1980, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The hotel was designed and constructed for Conrad N. Hilton (1887-1979) who created one of the first international hotel chains. He was a native of San Antonio, New Mexico who entered the hotel business in the 1910s. He acquired and renovated prominent old hotels, built a series of new hotels in the west, and eventually expanded his empire around the world. During the 1920s, Hilton concentrated on building hotels in Texas. El Paso’s Hilton Hotel, the eighth hotel in the Hilton chain, was the first high rise, the largest and the most elaborate. Hilton went on to develop 188 hotels in 38 U.S. cities and 54 cities abroad.
