US Hilton to be asked to run Colombo Hilton

Colombo’s Hilton Hotel will be managed by its parent organisation in the United States and re-furbished to accommodate VVIPs when Commonwealth leaders meet for their summit in 2013, if a proposal now before the Cabinet is accepted.
It was barely four months ago that Hotel Developers Limited, the owning company, was taken over as an “underutilised” or “underperforming” venture in terms of a controversial law. Thereafter, a Competent Authority, who was appointed to oversee the working of the hotel, had recommended sweeping changes to a Cabinet Sub Committee headed by Minister Anura Priyadarshana Yapa.
