Hilton's new sporting ambitions

Hilton, the up-market hotel chain, is set to defy the gloom by opening a string of new properties, including plans to open a venue at the stadium of the MK Dons, in Milton Keynes. As part of the deal, under its Doubletree vehicle, Hilton will also become the football team’s shirt sponsor. Other new venues will include Hilton Garden Inns at Luton Airport.
