In one of his earliest projects for the Hilton Hotel chain, this airport hotel in El Paso utilized many of the hallmarks of Killingsworth's style. The six interconnected low-slung, two story buildings had walls of glass in the lobby, with a wide overhang to shelter the front of the hotel from the Texas sun, and all buildings were grouped around a central courtyard with pool. The 150 guest rooms were part of a complex which included gift shops, meeting rooms, and a drive-up check-in window.
