When asked if Hilton would launch a homesharing business like Marriott did earlier in the week, Nassetta echoed his remarks from previous earnings calls, saying, “I think the short answer is at the moment, that’s not something that we’re pursuing. The longer answer is, which is consistent with my prior commentary, is we fundamentally think that homesharing is a different business.”

Nassetta had reason to feel confident about Hilton’s existing business model after a relatively strong first quarter for 2019.
