When I first visited Europe in 1997, I had an uncle who used to work for the Hilton property in Mainz, Germany -- the one right by the river Rhine. With his employee rate, most of my hotel stays throughout my trip were spent in a Hilton brand. I don't know why, but most of the time, we ended up staying at one of their properties near the airport. I guess that's because they are cheaper. Hehe.
Anyway, since I don't have a lot of blog-worthy pics from this trip I took more than 10 years ago, let us just look at how the logo of the brand has evolved from "Then 'til Now" -- courtesy of the hotel stationery I've cut out for my trip scrapbook :-)
Apologies for the quality of the pictures -- 1997 ancient "artifacts" taken with an iPhone. Hehe.
Lastly, here is their old logo printed on one of their key cards "side-by-side" with their new logo I took from their website.
I, sort of, prefer the older logo. What about you?
